Default hub bearing

i am in the process of servicing my rear hub and need to source a double row angular bearing - i remember reading a thread on which there was a discussion about which is the best make of bearing to get yet can't seem to find it in the search facility!
browsing around prices differ by quite a lot up to 20! is it the usual rip off or do you get a better quality bearing the more you pay?

If you just need the bearings, talk to Noel.

Wink 3810-2RS bearings....

Colin;
the stock bearings are INA......and there have been a lot of failures

my local bearing house(store) Motion Industries gets ~$95 for the SAME bearing i'll sell you for $34 + $6 for shipping because you are across the pond

as of yet there have been NO failures of any bearing i have sold, (there is a thread about it)

i have probably sold ~150 bearings.....Mitch has recorded ~66 hub failures......my friend Charlie has sold a bunch of bearings too

somehow, not everybody has owned up

i recommend that people buy 2......

>it cuts down on shipping
>if you suspect the bearing, you have one at hand
>your mate might need one, and you have a spare
>you won't won't miss any riding time waiting on the Post......given your weather that may or may not be important
>and you WON'T take a chance on an iffy bearing

you want to solve the problem?

get a hub from Mitch......i have 2 and one has 11,000mi on it
