All about... Ceramic Bearings
Instead being outside riding my new Ellsworth Evolve (will post pics soon) I am stuck inside (food poisoning) reading about mountain bikes. I decided to research a topic that Chino and I debated last week... Ceramic Bearings. My research has concluded that ceramic bearings are lighter, stiffer, easier to maintain, and last anywhere from 5-20 times longer than steel bearings. So... Chino... as usual... you are wise... and I stand corrected.
Here are some interesting links on Ceramic Bearings...
