That would be great, thanks! If they are 0.25 could you let me have the whole used set, as I'm looking into getting them re-metalled. I have loads of STD already (I remember once asking myself why I kept them - now I know Image).

Sorry, haven't forgotten about this, need to measure the crank and then I will get back to you.  But how does the re-metalling process work - is it not possible to build an old standard set back up to a 0.25 u/s, or is that too much material to add back?

The new 0.25 u/s bearings turned up from the US.  So at least I have these as an option if a new bearing manufacturer doesn't appear.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten about this. I've managed to source a single new KS no1 (thrust end) bearing at 0.25u/s, amazingly.
A guy in Germany who has a mate who works at KS, and he has a small selection of individual bearings, just numbers 1 and 3, in under and over sizes. What are the chances, eh?
He has no half shells, or nose bearings though.
