    Where to get cartridge bearings from?

    I need a couple of 17x26x5mm cartridge bearings.
    Where does one find such a thing.

    Thanks

    southern bearings in abbotsford, right near the brewery, dudes pretty nice.
    also there's a place in west Melbourne but I can't remember the name, a quick Google should sort it out though. both will have what you're after

    With the special proprietary tool I don't have...
    Mallet and aluminium tube? I've never done it before to be honest.

    For Formula hubs, you can pop the old bearings out by removing the locknuts and tapping the axle while supporting the hubshell. This will ruin them, but it doesn't matter as they're already worn out. If you don't have access to a bearing press, you can use a piece of pipe that's the same OD as the bearing to gently hammer the replacements in. Just tightening the locknuts will ruin your new bearings by sideloading them.

    Southern Bearings have a bearing puller / press I think (snowflake?).

    Edit: The first link has the bearing supplier you require in Spud's post. Not obsolete.

    The first thread you linked to Blakey is from 2008 and all the info is obsolete, just sayin
    The second thread - hmm I see your point.

    I don't know but if you're polite and you pay in cash they usually give a discount. I'm guessing they'd probably lend a bearing press, so long as you're wearing a shirt.
    It's a fine line between stupid and clever.

    Didn't they pull/install your ENO bearings for you? Or is my memory failing?

    I read somewhere that you can just place the old worn out bearings over the new ones, then put the track nuts on and tighten them to push the new bearing into the hub shell. I've never actually tried it, but sounds like it should work...
