From what I have seen, front hubs that use 4x bearings, have used 688 bearings (ie American Classic Micro 58, Bitex RAF10, BHS SuperLight Wide Front). I was hoping kylefoo could chime in with the bearings used in the ED hub and the Hubsmith front bearings.
Hi PH, yeah, our ED hub do has 4bearings in front, with 4*688 front and 4*6802 rear. while our FAR is 2*699 front and 2*6802+2*6902 rear. however, it is cheaper than ED hub. as i know, Hubsmith is 2*6800 front, 1*6801 and 3*6902 rear. in terms of 2bearings in front working well or 4 bearings front? guys have own opinions i think. hahaaa, great to talk with you here.
our ED hub, 65g front, 192g rear
hubsmith: 65g front, 188g rear.
