This

Its more of a geometry issue of the bushing than the durometer, imo.

No matter what you use (poly, rubber, or sphericals) It will need to be changed eventually.

If you are putting a lot of load through the rear, the sphericals will be the strongest option.
I think I'm going to purchase the sphericals from you in a little bit. I don't really mind the road buzz or at least I'm willing to tolerate it at the present time.

What kind of service life are you getting out of the sphericals/where can I purchase new bearings if/when they need to be replaced. In my bicycle racing days we were swapping out steel cartridge bearings for hybrid ceramic ones in our wheel hubs and cranks. I've got some in a set of race hubs that probably have over 10k miles on them and still spin butter smooth.

I haven't had anyone tell me they have replaced the spherical bearings yet and I have been selling them for ~5 years now?

Any place that carries FK or Aurora bearings can get replacements. It's all standard sized easily available components.

Hey Ben... any chance we can do group pricing on these if say I were ready to purchase and Marvelous were ready to purchase?

That said, selling 4 bearings probably isn't enough to make it interesting for you... worth getting flamed for asking though.

I've got about 50k on them (134 miles a day) and they are still going strong.
