    2011 mojo hd ceramic bearings for crank

    I'm in the process of putting the sram xx1 drive train on my mojo and was wondering what bearing to get and where.

    Also is there any reason why I wouldn't want to go to ceramic?

    Thanks in advance

    I think ceramic bearings are a waste of money. Chris King would be best.

    Why not ceramic? Less drag = more power to the ground?

    My experience is:
    high dollar, plus no noticeable difference, and lifetime is no better.
    So all you are really doing is spending more money.
    It's like getting Ti bolts to hold on your water bottle cage. It's bragging rights, but no real benefit.
