So I have emailed both Niner and Enduro with no response for about two weeks. I'll try here.

I ordered the Enduro Niner RIP bearing replacement kit bearing size in the kit is 608 LLB MAX C-3.

My LBS mechanic went to replace the old with the new and told me the new bearings were the same size and would not work. I have read this thread in the forum already but it does not discuss how the enduro size bearings are different that the Niner stock bearings.

So what's the skinny, will they work or not?
