Don't want to appear as the 'grumpy old g*t' but these things work really well if posters add one or two (as op requested) with perhaps a funny comment, a quip, or story that helps the memory (like the 'things in the kitchen' thread - thanks to greytop I will always remember kettle. It's er, mm well you know, the thingy, yer know what I mean. (tetera)

Ball bearings are little spheres of metal that support a rotating part and allow it to move smoothly.

Según esta pagina web, en los cambios, en la transmisión, en el volante, y en las ruedas. Parece que hay muchos tipos, no sólo pelotas pequeñas. (Lo siento; ¡no soy mecánica!)
