Abec11’s Biltin bearings have been an open secret for a long time. Sought after for their integrated half-spacers and washers, these are a solid and easy to service bearing that will run and run. They even come affixed to a bolt in a dedicated tube which is designed to facilitate easier cleaning; just replace them on the bolt after a session, pour in some acetone, citrus cleaner, or surgical spirit, and shake them clean.
(Make sure you relubricate them before you put them back in your wheels, though!)
Update 15/02/21: Thanks to Brexit, shipments from UK into the EU are now subject to customs checks and VAT charges. Please be aware of this before placing an order as we cannot accept returns due to a customs charge. Yes, we think this is a stupid situation too. Dismiss
