Like many others, I was a bit disappointed to learn that the wheels only had steel bearings http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=75250&start=45
So, I have been trying to find out which types of bearings I need to upgrade the wheels when I get them, but I just can figure it out. I have asked around and so far I've got three different answers
I have asked two people from CarbonSports, and got the following answers:
you need for the front wheel,
the number 6092RS
and for the rear wheel the number 69022RS
these numbers stand for the respective size.
you can´t use in the Lightweight Frontwheel with the full carbon hub bearing sit ceramic bearings.
The hub have not enough small tolerances for ceramic bearings.
The ceramic bearings are damaged in a few kilomiters.
In The rearwheel you need:
Left side: 1x 6802 RS
Right side: 1x 6902 RS
Freewheelbody: 2x 6702 RS
Also, I read what "legs 11" wrote in this thread: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=605472#p605472 but that only made me even more confused
Has anyone tried putting ceramic bearings in the front wheel? And what was the result?
Doesn't Obermayer have ceramic bearings in the front wheel hub? And if it is the same hub, why do they advice against the use of ceramic bearings in the standard wheels? I do intend to use mine for race-day only.
