if the hubs of the wheels are not designed to accept mini bearings, then the answer is no. The mini's will be too small to fit in the regular hub spacing.

I used to have some micro bearings that came with "sleeves" that acted as adaptors.

ughh I really wanted some mini bearings because they seem to be a lot faster, i have abec 9 bearing but idk, when i spin the wheels by holding the bearings on my thumbs, it goes really fast but when i put it on that frame and tight it, it spins really slow :S and sometimes it feels weird when i am skating..
by the way, hub you mean the whole where the screw goes?

the hub is the actual space in the wheel that the bearing fits in to.

Are you over tightening the wheel? They should be just tight enough for the bearing to spin freely but not so tight that they slow the bearing down.

i believe i am not over tightening because if i keep it less tight than it is atm, the wheel spin but really uneven and i know that it's not good..
also i was looking on this website and found this

the INSIDE bore of the bearing is 8mm... what is different is the OUTSIDE diameter of the mini bearings

its like trying to put a 18" tire on a 16" wheel

They will fit if you use the sleeves. Are you using spacers? That sounds like the problem where you tighten the wheels and they stop spinning.

how is this sleeve thing? do we buy it separately or does it come with the bearings?

Also i do have spacers, so should i take them out and just let the screw goes through both bearings and tight it?

I got sleeves when I bought my bearings...I wonder if the spacers are too small?

i think the spacers fit correctly, i tried doing it before without the spaces and it looked worse, maybe i should try it again and test it..

can you post a pic of this "sleeve"
+ doesn't most of the bearings come with it already.?

Sorry, I got in late on this topic

Mini bearings require wheels that support them (668 micro hub wheels) e.g. rink rat mb816 and apropriate spacers (6mm or 8mm) - spacers are what sits between the bearings inside the wheels, you need these.

wheel -> bearing -> spacer -> bearing -> wheel

I have never used sleves... they are an adapter part and generally not needed. I believe these sit on the axel to convert a 6mm axel to 8mm if you are using an 8mm set up (I have never had to use them).


Personally, I dont think the micro route is worth it at all. I dont know anyone who has tried it and ultimately stuck with it.

IMO the best thing to do is simply, put some standard size swiss bearings in there (bsb or bones depending on what side of the fence you sit). (have you noticed that top of the line skates have swiss bearings (or titanium, of which Im not a huge fan of))

A good set of bearings are worth their weight in gold and swiss bearings are where its at for hockey

When you put a wheel into the chassis and tighten it up (do not over tighten or you will stip the axels), it will always apperar to rotate slower.

Trust me, a good stride is more beneficial than the top of the line bearings or wheels. When it feels funny, is that after you have been skating a while? It may be that your ankles are getting tired and you are riding you inside edges - hockey skates suck when it comes to ankle support, it will take you a while to strengthen these up (not as much as propper speed skates).


Speed is also influenced by the "hardness" of your wheels. For hockey harder wheels == more speed but less grip. Depending on your surface and skill level you may want to run harder wheels at the back and softer wheels at the front.

Any specific questions, ask away and Ill do my best to answer them

I assume you are playing hockey.

Hockey generally a game about short bursts of speed, stopping and turning, so you dont really want a speed set up. The better you get, the less likely you are to get a breakaway and be given the space to go coast to coast with the puck

Yes...that's the bottom line.

And how many choices of wheels do you have?
And how do you keep your bearing clean, exposed as they are...no shields
I like labernyths...
Any day you know who(our favorite troll) is going to come up with an anti gravitational device
