Hey guys,

just a quickie; how many ball bearings per side on a Shimano Exage front hub? Sheldon says 10 but 11 seems to be a pretty sweet fit with the axle and cone in place.

(yes they went everywhere).

Thanks in advance guys! (I searched before posting as well)

Go with Sheldon. I know 11 will fit but Shimano spec'd it with 10

Thanks kindly Dave, most appreciated!

Every bit of advice helps on my first foray into completely overhauling an older bike.
