    US Supplier of 100% verified authentic quality bearings?

    Hambini has verified bearings in the UK, but if I can get them here in the US I would prefer to do so.

    You can get factory dt swiss bearings that fit a lot of different hubs from worldwidecyclery, those are real high quality bearings... but they dont fit all my hubs.

    So anyone have a supplier that can be verified for authentic products, for not insanity pricing? Any of the big names are good, NTN or NSK, or SFK etc etc. I've found a few authorized retailers, but I'm not paying $80 a piece for hub bearings.

    You can buy many of those locally from bearing supply companies. If you are near a large city, I can promise there is a bearing supplier there, too.

    The way down there one? only you provided a source. https://www.qualitybearingsonline.co...rings-17x30x7/

    Which looks like a good source and the prices are great. Ill contact them shortly. I honestly have no idea how to actually verify a bearing supplier.

    I do have a SKF approved local distributor literally around the corner. They want $58 for a 6903 bearing. They are $18 online.

    Yep, typical markups for local suppliers. Unfortunately lots of people get their fingers in the cake and from a local supplier it's a very much "special order" a lot of the time. I'll be ordering some new bearings shortly, for my Hope hubs.
