With the foundation complete (Gunnar Roadie) I'm in the midst of upgrading parts including compact crankset, carbon handlebars, seatpost...you know the rest. I'm seeking "expert" advice on the utility/value of getting some ceramic bearings to replace the original steel bearings in my DT Swiss hubs which probably have about 6,500 miles on them. Not much out there on the net beyond the sales pitch from the bearing companies which make it sound like something we should all do. Anyone make the switch and see any performance increase?

I have not replaced hub bearing w/ceramic, but I have replaced my bb. What a difference. It is at least one gear easier. I replaced them on my FSA Gossamer Ext BB. The real proof will be to see how long they last. But so far, I am totally satisfied.
