42mm ISIS Bearings in stamped housings

I know I read this somewhere here before but the search box is being funky for me right now.

Has anyone had an ISIS hub in a frame with stamped bearing holders long term? Any issues with bearing life?

Seems like I remember someone saying that the larger bearings actually fit better?


I ran a ISIS wheel in my old Yuni frame with stamped bearing holders for over 2 years with no issues whatsoever, In fact they fit better than 40mm bearings… :wink:

Also the google search seems broken, but the search in the drop-down box appears to be working.

I have this setup on my steel frame muni. Never had any issues within the last 3 or 4 years since i have this muni.

The search function has been broken on this website for a while. What you can do is just include unicyclist.com among the words you search for on Google. That will get you pretty similar results to the old search bar, I think.

I have a similar experiance as Eric P. I ran 42mm bearings in stamped holders for years.

Currently i have a Qu-Ax 36 frame with stamped holders, and a cotterless 40mm hub. I didn’t like the fit, so I’m running it with shims to 42mm. Much better.

If you include site:unicyclist.com/forums in your search, it should pretty closely mimic the search function.
