What kind of grease should I use for my bearings?
« on: September 28, 2015, 05:10:44 PM »
So I recently took my back wheel off to have a new tire put on I was wondering if I should put any grease on the bearings and axle and if so what kind should I use the reg red wheel bearing like for cars or something else

The only thing you need to do is gently wipe the black plastic dust caps of the wheel bearings, make sure the axle is totally clean and dry, then apply a glob of waterproof marine grease, or similar, to the axle. Think about the volume of 4 peas; not a lot, it'll just make a mess.
