After a lot of wet muddy rides the bearings in my BSA Hope cups have reached the end of the line so I am going to replace them. It's not entirely clear to me which bearings are OEM for Hope so I'm thinking of sourcing some from the net. NSK, SKF, Enduro or similar?? I'm UK based btw

Hope bearings are manufactured by INA to custom sizes, you won't find the same bearing size in anyone else's catalogue.

I replaced mine with "non-gen" Hope bearings from a Hope dealer, that were to the same spec.
I'd tell you the pn's but my bikes filthy and I'm not stripping it.

Originals did last years, but I've only got 12 months out of these though, so imo I'd just replace with a pair of originals.

That's not true. They use 24x37x7 bearings, and can be replaced with e.g. these or these.
