Um, even if they are full ceramic, no way this price can be justified.

Yes, I'm sure it's an error but it's been that way for a while. You would think that TruRev would look at it's own website and correct it. Diego is not that famous.

probably not an error.
VXB full ceramics go for something like $60 a bearing, and that was two or three years ago. My friend had a half set (that's all he could afford) and loved them.

I think that is the dog that won ugliest dog in the world.

Anyway, Adam's Full Ceramics, when they were being sold, went for $12 a bearing. That is still way out of my price range, though the video on Adam's Inline shows that those bearings spin for a very long time.

Exchange rate wise, one Peso (the Mexican Currency) is about $0.10, or there about. When I was in Mexico in May, the exchange rate was about 11 Pesos to the Dollar. I usually expect the price in Pesos to be a factor of 10 higher than in USD.

exchange rate is 11.7 and in May it was about the same. It hasnt been 10 to one in a very long time. But the ad is in dollars. If it were pesos, there would be and "mn" next to the amount instead of the "$".
