Are ceramic bearings really worth it? How much drag do bearings really produce? Does the type of grease matter? Or is it faster to use no grease at all? What about removing the seals?
In this episode, I interview Matt Harvey with Enduro Bearings, and he answers all of those questions…and a WHOLE LOT MORE!
This is one of my favorite episodes ever because there’s a lot here that surprised me, and I learned a ton about bearings. We dive so deep about materials, what really causes friction, and why some marketing claims are quite likely be too good to be true.
We also talk about how you can immediately improve the performance of any bearing on any bike, straight out of the box, even if your bike, hubs, or bottom bracket are brand new!
Get ready to take notes and set your weekend aside for tinkering!
