I just won this on ebay. You will see me at the next skate jam with this!
Its a shame that I have to break it down like this but most mo’fo’s dont know anything about their skates. Here is a diagram so when your skates break down you wont panic.
Found this pic online. I thought it was cool so im sharing it with you guys!
I know allot of people that skate that don’t really know much about their skates. I make it my business to know my skates inside and out but here are some tips about ball bearings for those who dont!
Your new Bones Bearings are the most accurately manufactured part of your skate, with clearances and tolerances considerably smaller than 1/1000th of an inch. That means that a single hair is thicker than the clearance between the balls and the races inside the bearing, and a hair will clog it up and slow you down. Because you skate outside through dust, sand, water, mud, etc; your bearings will eventually get dirty and/or wet. When they are dirty, you will notice they don’t spin freely when you flick the wheel and you may also notice they are getting noisy. At this point you have two options: clean your bearings or replace them.
