    Bonking ... not feelin' well Tune Lefty hub bearing

    My tune cannonball sl bearing 81605 is spoil and only use less than about 80miles.

    Now need to replace new bearing, should i buy a normal bearing or enduro zero ceramic bearing. Is that a big difference between both? Because price is difference alot.

    If your rides have much water to them at all, or if you wash your bike with a spray hose, I'd stay away from the enduro ceramics. I've had much better luck with their regular bearings. The grease in their ceramic bearings are great for rolling resistance, but are far from water proof. It doesn't take much for the races to rust and pit. Friends have lost their new ceramic BBs in less than 100mi.
    I do run them on my roadbike BB.

    Agreed. I've had the same experience as rensho.

    I also need to replace my inner (bigger) hub bearing
    The bearing though is pretty well stuck in the hub and wouldn't budge.
    How can I remove it?

    light taps with a hammer and flat head screwdriver should do the trick, since you are replacing the bearing anyway...
