Wondering if anyone has looked into this bearing upgrade. It's an expensive upgrade (on an already expensive wheelset) -- curious to see if the actual gains are material enough. Also need to factor in the installation -- particularly on the front wheel which is supposedly not field-serviceable. Appreciate any thoughts on this. Thx.

you will get a lot of replies saying ceramic bearings don't give any gains - others will say its not worth the money.

But you have a set of light weights - how you spend you money and what is of value is likely to be different to most the people answering!

What do you need for this kit? HSC bearings are far cheaper and 99.9% of the performance.
