These ball bearing hubs are precision machined in two sizes, 6" and 8" in diameter. They are ready to accept 2, 4, or 8 arms. A 1" spacer is also included to keep the hub spaced away from the support post. The ball bearing hubs are also available in other bolt hole patterns, no extra charge. ½" diameter mounting bolts are not included.
These ball bearing hubs from are great when you need to securely fasten a free-spinning shaft to a stationary channel to drive a pulley, wheel, or other rotating device. Each ball bearing hub has an outer diameter of 1", a bearing bore of 0.25", a thickness of 0.5", and utilizes the 0.77" hub pattern.
Dual Ball Bearing Hub A is great when you need to securely fasten a free-spinning shaft to a stationary channel to drive a pulley, wheel, or other rotating device. This ball bearing hub has an outer diameter of 1", a bearing bore of 0.25", a thickness of 0.5", and utilizes the 0.77" hub pattern.
Ball bearing hubs can benefit from a regular overhaul. All Shimano hubs use ball bearings so we used one for our tutorial.

Regularly servicing ball bearing hubs will help to prolong the life-span of your hubs, especially if you regularly ride in gritty or wet conditions.
All Shimano hubs run on cup and cone bearings, so if you have Shimano wheels, this is a procedure that you should consider performing once or twice a year.
If your hubs feel like they are rough when you spin the wheels, or if there is play in the hubs, you could solve this issue by servicing the bearings.
If you're doing bearings on your rear hub, you'll need to take the cassette off first:
For this job, you will need:
Cone spanners (we needed 13 and 17mm spanners for our hub)
Degreaser to clean the bearings and races
A tool to get the bearings out
A container to keep the bearings in whilst you clean the hub
Take care not to use degreaser in the rear hub as you risk degreasing the freehub if you do this. Also avoid overtightening the cones when you rebuild the hub as this will result in increased friction. The new grease may take a couple of days to settle/pack in, so check the cones for tightness a couple of rides after first servicing it.
