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

where can i get FRM in the USA? how much do they cost over Tune of spada if they do? why would you take them over tune or spada? does skf make ceramic bearings?

sorry for the all the questions, this is my first wheel that i am building and i just want to get the smooth, light, and durable hubs.

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
