Several other manufacturers produce angular contact bearings to the 41.8mm standard to compete with Campagnolo, who remain dedicated to the use of old-fashioned ball bearings. The self-aligning and inverted cups last indefinitely provided they are greased regularly. The stack height is 7mm and it’s only available in 1 1/8in.
