    PS: I run Bones Super Reds lubed with Bones Speed Cream, and am quite happy with them.

      I purchased some Bones Speed Cream as you suggested, but haven't tried it yet. I'd be very curious of a compare between your Super Reds and the Ceramic Super Reds.

        So would I. Since my Super Reds work just fine though, I hesitate to invest in ceramics. On skates I could imagine the difference would be noticeable because they turn so much faster - not so much on my chair (I don't descend hills like toto1. . .).

                Here is a link that talks about the c3 clearance. http://www.bearingworks.com/technica..._clearance.php

                It seems to be a bit looser fit than "normal", and could be aimed at poor fitting bearing mounts. Any wheelchair caster I have ever seen easily qualifies on that score.

                My wife and I are both light duty users. If we can keep hair from accumulating in the bearings, I think that almost any set will be fine and will last forever.
                T4 complete, 150 ft fall, 1966. Completely fused hips, partially fused knees and spine, heterotopic ossification. Unsuccessful DREZ surgery about 1990. Successful bladder augmentation using small intestine about 1992. Normal SCI IC UTI problems culminating in a hospital stay in 2001. No antibiotics or doctor visits for UTI since 2001: d-mannose. Your mileage may vary.
