I don't know offhand what the part number on the bearings are, but that number is standardized. Once you get your mid bearings, take a look at the number stamped on the seals. You should be able to get those from pretty much anywhere that sells bearing cartridges...that's how I get replacements for my Euro cartridges when I smash 'em.

Beerman, does anyone sell a bearing tool for mids? I unfortunately haven't gotten a chance to play with this technology so I only know how it works on paper.

The "bearing tools" for a Mid would be some grease and a rubber mallet.

Usually for things like hubs there'll be a setting tool with a shaft on it to keep you pounding evenly on the races. I guess it's not such a big deal unless the bearing is recessed into the shell (which I'm assuming it's not).
