Replacing Novatec D711SB bearings

The front hub Novatec D711SB bearings have become rough.

I've forced some gease in and they are a bit smoother but need replacement.

After pulling off the two endcaps I can see the axle protruding through the bearings.

Presumably I have to drift the axle out which will remove one of the bearings - then reverse and knock out the other bearing. Is this correct?

Any links to quality replacement bearings please.

Thanks.

    Well I did - but I've now looked again and found viewtopic.php?t=12947886

    Don't know why I didn't see it before.
  • As per thread you linked, 28 x 15 x 7 mm, I normally use simplybearings, not the cheapest supplier, but wide choice and reliable quick delivery

    I've ordered some from WychBearings - seemed quite cheap so may not last.

    They’re not an expensive item anyway. One of the few things on a bike that aren’t :)

    Depends on the size... large chamfered headset bearings for 1 1/2 steerers are fairly expensive.. think I paid 15 quid last time I replaced one.
    Bearings for Campagnolo UT chainsets are very expensive too.
    Bearings with a 10 or 12 mm borse are cheap, but those with a 15 or 17 mm bore are pricier
