    2008 fantom DS hub bearing size?

    I lubed mine today and they had some chrome chiping off. Does anyone know the size? The rears were larger and only had 9 per side instead of 10 like the front.

    I'd like to order some new ones but need to know the size the races look good still.

    If you have the formula hubs, the front are 3/16 and the rear are 1/4 inches. I replaced my bearings with the grade 25 bearings from McMaster-Carr and have been very satisfied with them.

    I too recently replaced/upgraded my bearings as my rear was feeling a bit grainy...it spun well, but bearings are inexpensive, so I replaced the front and rear. I must admit I love my Vuelta Team Superlites, but when I e-mailed Vuelta XRP asking what bearings I needed, I did not get a response. Luckily the guys at my LBS (REI) were able to give me a couple options, so I went for the upgrade (like $5 or $6 each) and all is good.
    I ride these three days a week (and occasionally race) and they have been solid.
    I no longer deserve a signature. :skep:
