Worried About the Wrong End!

At about 5,500 miles it was time for the front tire to be changed. I also noticed a little front brake chatter as well, thought maybe the pads needed a cleaning or something. After replacing the front tire, I notice while spinning the wheel on the balancer the infamous sound of bad wheel bearings. What's this, the front! no way it's the back that is supposed to fly apart and leave debris scattered about the landscape. Still under warranty we contact MV, "repacements will be expeditiously forwarded"
BTW did you know Tang quit recently, the warranty contact @ MV USA? 2 weeks pass, f#@k this, bought some bearings put the wheel back on and went riding. No brake chatter too! Moral of the story...damn if I know!

Today, SKF is the largest bearing manufacturer in the world and employs approximately 44,000 people in approximately 100 manufacturing sites that span 70 countries.

Thanks Noel, the point I was making (not very well) was that they weren't made in France. They might even be Chinese SKF, I didn't check the box. They get checked every tyre change.
