These bearings look like they are for mountain bikes only. Does anyone use them on road bikes (wheels and bottom bracket) ?

    trade off appears to be no need to lube at the cost of higher friction, though unless you're doing tt it'll make no practical difference

    When on a mountain bike, the bearings generally will be exposed to more dirt and water. More often those bike tend to get washed down more, and with higher pressure. So in that the bearings that would be fitted to mountain bikes may have bearings with better seals or covers.
