Well the tech determined that the best course of action will be to install the next biggest bearing size and machine the wheel to fit. Not sure if that's the best course of action.

If they have tooling already to hold the wheel it would be fairly painless (I am guessing)

I would watch out for chinee bearings....I hear fakes are pretty common

Machine it and install bushing with red loctite then the correct bearing; easier and stronger. Oversize bearing will weaken the hub.

This is exactly what we ended up doing. Sent the rim to one guy to add some material around the bearing surface on the wheel itself. Then over to a machine shop to bore it out to the proper specs. Bearing had to be frozen to be installed with a little loctight. Buddy is back riding.
