Most, AFAIK. It'd take a riveted bearing carrier to stop me, if I could be bothered.

you often need to press them out by applying force to the inner race.
I was more thinking of this; often pretty hard to remove them non-destructively, and disassembling in situ = PITA, if possible.

They're a PITA to disassemble in the best of circumstances. I like the almost-cartridge style you come across occasionally, like the BBs inside 6500 STIs. No integral seals, just an easily-removable plastic bearing carrier that easily pops out.
