    A huge rip-off, in what way? Counterfeit? Expensive? etc
    Maybe expensive doesn't qualify as every damn thing associated with the cripple industry is overpriced from multiple ticket clipping (IMO)

    I checked both 5" casters, including those on the Aero T and they are 608 2RS /C3 grade bearings.
    The cracked 4" Frog Legs casters from my TiLite 2GX were 608 also. Yes, the casters were cracked:)

    I couldn't chop a TiLite axle for you but I did have a naffed Karma axle. I don't think the images add too much to the debate though:).

    If I have time tomorrow, I will section an old axle with the grinder and thin section cutting disc.
