    please help - MTB Laserdisc lite rear hub

    My Weyless FS needs a rebuild. My LBS took the rear wheel apart to find out what bearings it needs. The rear wheel has the MTB laserdisc lite rear hub with the following on the hub: 15267-2RS. The mechanic also wrote down "Chin Haub", but I don't know what that means.

    Searching led to reviews here that tells me these are horrible bearings.

    Wondering if you know where to find bearings for this hub.

    Thanks.

    chin huar is a taiwan company. 15267 is the bearing you need, get it at a bearing supplier

    no joy with the LBS. Don't know what the problem is -- but WTB is not returning calls. They can't find these bearings through their distributors. I'm frustrated -- things are finally drying out, I want to ride!

    can you tell me the dimensions of this bearing (measurements) so I can start to search for this bearing through suppliers?

    Thanks

    Oh -- one more question: Will the bearings in the front wheel be the same as in the rear?

    Enduro make them, code is MR1526 and it's a bike specific size. You won't find them at a bearing supplier.

    If you're in the US or Canda www.realworldcycling.com is the best place to get them, if you're in the southern hemisphere I can get them to you quicker.

    yes, they do, though they do not list them on their website.

    I've bought the Enduro Max 1526 bearing (which is the 15x26x7) from universal cycles before.

    They have them in stock and priced at $10
    http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...s.php?id=13362

    A quick Google search shows that a few places have them in the $8 range. you might be able to go there or have Universal price match them to save a few bucks.

    You can also get the non-max version for $8 from Universal

    The Enduro p/n's are:
    Enduro Max: MR 1526 2RS MAX
    Enduro Single Row: MR 1526 2RS

    I went with the Max bearings before I had even found the single rows. I wish I had gone single row as I bought them for road wheels and the Max is overkill. I think either are fine in a MTB wheel, but the Max is more suited for MTB than road.

    Thanks for the links. CAD shipping sucks ~30$ on a 40$ order.

    I wouldn't be doing this except my LBS has said that WTB has been back ordered for 3 months.
