#!markdown Bearing blowing up is an oddity. Manufacturing is a game of aiming for 100% functionality but accepting 99%. Things can go akimbo in materials, fabricating, and assembly. You know this though, proven by the diligence in disassembling and reassembling a new bike. We do much the same at the shop I moonlight at for all bike builds, from Trek 820's to $10K road bikes, and even that boxed up Pacific someone brings in from Wally World. Time consuming for sure, but we catch most things before they become an issue later on. With that, I'd say make an editor's note about it at the beginning of an article, something you can copy and paste, and then carry on.
