    Wait a minute here!

    If you look more closely at your part number, you will see there is a problem. Our bearings don't have a length of 12mm; but instead, a width of 4mm.

    Thank you!

    That is the one I was looking at and I'm wondering how you knew that bushing would fit? There are no specs listed nor description and I don't see how you knew that would fit.

    A failure in one of the ceramic bearings.

    My Ceramic bearing logging came to an end finally on August 15th about twelve minutes into the run. I was hoping to make it one year at least with the ceramic bearings; but it fell just 16 days shy...

    Give me some time because I have to pull a tire anyway because I got a soft spot in the tire and have to see what happened.
