This is a unique bearing in that the inside race is extended 1mm on both sides. So the bearing is 8mm ID, 22mm OD, and has an outer race thickness of 7mm and an inner race thickness of 9mm. This cannot be used in normal wheelchair caster wheels and is not considered a standard 608 bearing. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PEASE CONTACT US.
Manufacturers suggest you service your wheelchair at least once a year. Your wheelchair, if not properly maintained will cause long-term damage to your body. Putting new bearings in your wheelchair and properly maintaining them is something you can do at home and will greatly reduce wear and tear on your body and allow you to go faster and roll farther. We have developed a set of tools, found great bearings, and show you how to do it. More zoom less squeak.
We use high-quality bearings made for the professional cycling industry. The bearings are designed to handle harsh environments and keep on working. Each of our Bearing Kits comes with 4x high-quality bearings, 2x cotton swabs for cleaning and remove any old grease, 2x acetone wipes to clean hubs before re-greasing them, 1x high-quality grease packet to add an anti-seize bearer between the bearing and the hub and a step by step instruction booklet to make sure you are on track.
