Are these un-branded BB bearings ok? And what is meant by 'style 3' mid bearings?

Okay I've delayed buying BB bearings for my new frame wayy too long, I have my card out now and ready to order - I'd really like to spend $10 on these unbranded ones I found on ebay, am hoping for opinions/thoughts! I'd rather not spend $25 to get odysseys if these will be fine!

(am also unsure what's meant by 'style 3', presumably that's how they refer to the spacer tube's length...I have a spacer tube thankfully, it's just the bearings that were destroyed in this 2012 kink transition frame I got super-cheap! A chance to try 20.5 again though :D )

they'll be fine, chances are the seller just titled it "style 3" to make it easier for him to identify when packing them ready to post

What Steve said, also I prefer the tube spacers to come slightly too long and just rub it on a flat file until it's a perfect fit, if too small just add crank spacers to the inside
