    The various rolling bearings used in bicycles (mainly hubs, bottom brackets, headsets, pedals) can be simply divided into bearing and ball gear bearings.

    So what exactly are bearing shaft and ball gear bearing?

    The ball gear bearing is composed of a bowl, a shaft gear, and a ball in the middle. They and the hub body together form a large bearing.
