Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Good source, recomendations for wheel bearings.

Good source, recomendations for wheel bearings.

Where can I get good quality wheel bearings for a DT Swiss hub.
I did an internet search and found a place called Boca Bearings, but have no idea as to the quality of the bearings they sell.
I donít want to end up degrading the quality of the hub by putting an inferior part into it.
Experience .. suggestions?

What's wrong with going to a bike shop? They'll have or can order anything you want, and you'll establish yourself as a serious customer. Plus you won't have to pay $7 shipping for five bucks worth of parts.

As you know I have grown to distrust the work of the mechanics at the bike shop that I have been using. So by default I do not feel I could trust their recommendations on parts either. So if I were going to get the parts from them I would want to know what I needed in advance. As their pass it off, good enough attitude I am sure would extend to their parts recommendations.
