    Well here is the mods I did....I took my Vertigo carbon 3 pc brake kit and added 2 sealed bearings to it, a very simple mod to do......the cost of the brake kit from Vertigo is 24.99 I believe and the Bearings I got from MRADLIN (THANK YOU!!!!) but you can buy them pretty much anywhere the bearing size are 6x10x3mm(flanged)..

    They are FLANGED (meaning they have a lip) and they are a tight fit they are not going anywhere....

    Can you post a link to the bearings you used. I think this could be easily done to the stock aluminum as well with those bearings!
    Thanks again for posting this mod!

    Boca Bearings is a company that makes bearings: http://www.bocabearings.com/main1.as...=25&n=MF106-ZZ

    I clicked on the link in someone's post and fell off my chair looking at the price, I know it's for 10 bearings, but I can't see the need for that many to do this mod. The link I posted you can buy 2 at a time, or in larger lots.

    I only found them at that store. Thanks for the heads up! It would be much cheaper to only get 2.
