Will try and find them later this morning. I have a book with all the bearing specs written down somewhere.

I have four 61802 2RS bearings listed for the G3 hub with a 15mm axle.
That measurement is 24mm Outside diameter, 15mm inner diameter and 5mm width.
I also have a note on it as that says 2011 only (can't remember why, but presumably there were other options at some point)
Back a couple of years ago Saris were selling these crappy old bearings for £15 each! You can get this type of cheap bearing for £2-3 at a bearing dealers?
Inexpensive stainless is the way to go, or SKF or something like that.
Hope that helps.

I tried to replace the nds side bearing of my g3 hub. I pressed the axle from ds, and I was able to push nds the bearing out from the hole by 5mm, but after that it didn't come out more no matter how I hammered or pushed the axle. What am I doing wrong? I had to push it back. Hope I didn't broke anything..

I'm resurrecting this thread because I'm curious about replacing bearings in the G3. I know that PT says you need to send it in like all prior hubs, but we could always do it ourselves quite easily before.

Anybody got experience with the G3? Because it would not be good if they've made this impossible... I mean extremely difficult, to do yourself. Bearings simply don't always last that long in some conditions.

Anyone have experience with the new GS hubs? The internals are DT Swiss, so I'm wondering if the bearings are the same ones DT uses, as well.

Powertap hub bearings are very sensitive to poor dropout alignment and I suspect this is the #1 cause of premature failure. I got a frame warrantied for this reason. It explains why there is a big spread in bearing life. Surely Powertap/Cyclops must know by now that the bearings are 'crap'. So why would they keep spec'ing them?

That could be true for the NDS hub bearing since the cap was sort of loose and pressed right against the inner race of that bearing. The G3 is a little different, so they probably fixed that problem. But legs 11 above stated that the G3 takes 4 6802 bearings, which are very small and low load capacity.
