    Bearing Upgrade for Maverick 24/7 Hub

    Has anyone jumped on the ceramic bandwagon and upgraded the bearings in their Maverick 24/7 Hub? I am getting ready to replace my five year old neglected original bearings and was wondering if the extra $$$ to go ceramic would be worth it. If not, I plan on going with SKF 6805-2RS as I have heard these are excellent replacements.

    Any input is welcome.

    This is a little late in the day i guess...
    I had a conversation with Tim Flooks of TF Tuning a while ago, he had changed the bearings on a 24/7 hub to ceramic but couldnt discern any advantage. If youre a weight weenie then they save a few grammes and of course they dont rust, both plus points.
    I use SKF bearings when i replace and can whole heartedly recommend them, top quality and worth the extra cash for smooth long lasting use and accurate tracking. Cured a problem with run-out on a hope hub with SKF(run out= a sight wobble due to bearing misalignment).Not stainless though so need to be serviced if you run in the wet a lot.

    Thanks for the input! I have SKF bearings in my monolink and they are still going strong after three years so it makes sense to stick them in the front hub as well. Hopefully I'll get to this before winter sets in. And Alpamayo makes a good point... I certainly don't need to part with any unnecessary $$$
