Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

note for the future: the bearing size is usually written on the bearing seals
you should see something like: 6000-2RS. 6000 is the bearing size. 2RS means they have dual rubber seals (an alternative suffix would be ZZ which means it has metal shields)

Be careful with reading the seals. Sometimes manufacturers use their own nomenclature to denote bearing names - for example 61000 = forumla 6000 bearings.

Supa ghey.
