    SKF bearings in a Hope hub?

    Hi, I am really interested in buying new sealed bearings for my Hope Pro II Evo hub. How do I know the measures I should ask for, and how does it cost? Is it for sale on the
    internet?

    The bearing seals have numbers on them that correspond to size.

    Hope Bearing Kit Pro 2 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    They list the sizes as "Rear 6802 x 2, 6903 x 2 & 6902 x 1". if you punch those numbers into google, you'll find tons of sources for bearings. I like VXB a lot.

    VXB is a trader, so nothing to tell about them regarding bearings

    The bearing kit at Chainreaction is actually not a bad deal. I doubt you will find them cheaper as a consumer.
    If you work some place that uses bearings in big numbers, you can sure get a better deal.

    Considering you seem to know very little about bearings, your best shot is to just buy a kit, and be done with it.

    They are real easy to replace, takes like half an hour for both front and rear.
    If in doubt, look up the manual from Hope.

    The vxb bearings are stamped VXB, they certainly do have bearings. They've got everything from regular to stainless to ceramics (pass on ceramics). If someone else is manufacturing them, thats pretty standard these days.. its still a valid bearing source.

    Ive used a ton of them and they've been fine. Not sloppy or anything, they work well and last. They're also cheap.
