I'm in need of some new bearings for my rear wheel. These are the 'official' product but are not currently in stock.

There seem to be a few other brands offering 6803 bearings - will any of these fit? Any recommendations?

Cheers for any help!

    Yes, they will. Make sure they are 2RS, which means they have rubber seals on both sides.
    I normally use Simplybearings, they are not the cheapest, but they have wide choice and speedy delivery

    Excellent, thanks for that (and the incredibly fast reply!)

    Second vote for Simply Bearings, very good service.

    Not all bearings are equal, don’t buy the cheapest. Buy SKF it NSK if you can, mid price range can be fine depending on application, but do avoid the ‘budget’ range. As with everything, you get what you pay for.

    And don't mash them when installing. Make sure whatever you're using is pressing only on the bearing outer.
