I have the Enduro Bearings bb discussed in this article and it has been flawless: https://nsmb.com/articles/searching-30mm-bb92-solution/
these seem to be the same bearings as the Wheels Mfg as they say they use Enduro dual row yada yada. it's all a bit confusing to me, i don't think about these things until i need them and i do some research, ask the LBS and get the best i can afford at the time. the guy at the LBS was skeptical that they would last long just because of the press fit style (said they rock back and forth with pedal strokes, compared to threaded in, which i can see the logic) despite the high quality. i hope he's wrong.
adding to the confusion, WM have a new product; it's the same as above, but 'black oxide' bearings. it's a substantial cost savings, so maybe black oxide is less expensive than stainless?
Black oxide is a anti-corrosion coating. We have parts at work that gets a similar treatment.
And in regards to the rocking back and forth. He must not be very familiar with press-fit BB,s . They have been used for years.
I,m in need of a new BB as well , BB92. My current RF is toast , but still limping along. Running RF 30mm Cinch cranks does limit one,s choices.
