(closed)
For those who have done this before : How do you remove the bearings? What bearing codes to get? Thank you

6000 bearings. Knock them out and press new ones in like you would on just about any other sealed bearing hub.

Get ready to do it again soon, especially if it's a rear hub. Those ceramic bearings aren't going to last long.

I'll keep you updated- 3rd of August 2016 new bearings bought and installed . Will be using this on my daily ride to work, averaging 16 km / day. The ones I replaced that came with the gran compe hubs lasted 2 and half years- made in Taiwan bearings. Hope the enduros last longer.

Will be using this on road conditions that ain't the best - 1 km that is muddy when it rains (bike's on the shoulder if it is too muddy), and dusty when the sun shines for days, concrete roads that have cracks and humps which is common here in the Philippines and a hanging bridge that have wooden planks you'll keep on bouncing a little if you ride your bike.
