Who is a good source for sealed bearings? I recently picked up a titanium bb; one side has a square shoulder (sealed bearing?) and the other looks to be a regular bearing surface. Did mfg's mix up bearing types on an axle? Scott Edrington San Diego CA

I agree. I have a Stronglight titanium bottom bracket that I bought back in 1977 or 78 and I have been very pleased with it over the years. I could get someone photos of it if you want. It is with sealed bearings. I remember paying what seemed like a small fortune for it way back then.
