What Are Advantages Of The Different Bearing Materials?
22 Jan 2015
I see you have stainless, steel, and chrome steel bearings. What are the advantages of each (presumably corrosion, but what about hardness?) and which would you recommend for Shimano cup and cone bearings (e.g. my old XT hubs, or my new Ultegra hubs)?

The Chrome steel bearings are actually a harder grade than the stainless bearings. When it comes to bearings the best thing to do is look at the grade, the lower the number the more round the bearings are. Shimano normally use 25 grade bearings for the higher end hubs and 50 grade for the lower end ones. I would not recommend spending more on higher quality bearings though as the cones and cups on most Shimano hubs aren't smooth enough to make a full difference, they will make smooth bearings rough just a quick.
