As I want to put good bearings in there for smooth running and long life, I'm looking for grade 25 or lower (which really means better). Only problem----all I can find is grade 200 or above in that size. Loose Screws, Bikeman, etc. sell grade 25 in all the "popular" sizes, but not in the oddball 5/16".
