Depends on the condition and quality of the bearings. The bearings that are supplied with the Sugino 75 BB are very good quality and if serviced periodically will not deteriorate significsntly. So, it depends on the condition of the caged bearings that the OP has obtained and if they are in fact new there is no reason to discard them. The bearings in my Sugino 75 BB are in excellent condition after 9 years of hard use.
