Ok, a long shot but anyone know size of bearings (id, od, width) comprising the kp 209 kit for carbon frame cannondale scalpel 29?

There are 6 of them in two different sizes.

Yep, no Problem.

I would prefer SKF or other high quality bearings instead of the expensive set of chinese bearings.

29er Carbon:
2x SKF 61800 2RS
4x SKF 61802 2RS

Yeah ive done it several times. You should use KP169 or similar tools.
And follow the instructions for mounting and dismounting everything.

Using 4 mm and 5mm allen keys so far have done the 4 upper bearings. Tap them out then press in using a suitably sized socket.

The bottom bearings are the ones with the most play and have come to a temporary stop as I could not get the hollowgram crank off. Either will need to buy the removal tool or as has been suggested, use a rod against the bolt on the other crank.
