a Friend figured out, that you can buy stronger ballbearings
if you replace the ring with 16 ballbearing for 24 stronger ballbearings you spread the load

Thing is - the top bearing is never knackered once it's been set-up correctly, just the bottom one every 18-24,000 miles. They do go from new, granted. So I don't really see the point of changing the type of top-bearing.
