Where would i be able to get ceramic bearings for my tune mag200 and mig66 hubs? i have not paid for the hubs yet, i thinking on them becuase they are $320, but the tune 2004 mag 160 (164grams) and mig66 would cost me $620 shipped.

i was also looking at spada hubs, does anyone have them, can anyone tell me about these hubs, and how good and reliable are they? i think the rear only has 2 bearings, does that make a big difference from 4 bearings on the tune hubs?

I should buy FRM in stead of Tune or Spada's. The FRM's are slightly heavier than the Spadas but they are smooth

SKF has a big range of bearings, go to a special shop and buy your bearings

http://www.bullteksports.com/ 370$ for the carbons Tune 315$ (Mig66+Mag200). I prefer the FRM's because they are smooth and durable, and you can adjust the bearings. While looking at Bullteksports I also saw the Zipps: very good hubs, but only up to 24 hole front and 28 rear
