    Default R8/10 front wheel bearings

    Forgive me if this has been discussed before but has anyone used a standard 30204 bearing for the inside and made up a 5.5mm spacer for the back. I can get the correct one from Mecaparts, at a cost. I'd still need the seal and the backing cup, or are they standard parts? The outside bearing is standard 30203.

    Answering my own question, the seal is a standard part. The cups can be bought separately from mecaparts, if they ever get back to me.

    I don't immediately see why not. The question is why? There is a bearing designed for the job and available after all. Not the cheapest, I'd concede.

    I'm trying to limit my mecaparts order. If I can get the part here at a reasonable price then I will.

    It also gives me some flexibility in the spacing for my brake design.

    Fair enough. Sort of presumed that. Hopefully someone who has actually tried it will respond.
