HOW TO FIND SKATEBOARD BEARING
Every user of skateboard bearing must clearly know that the skateboard wheel is been held by two bearings which are clearly advice to make space fill up with a spacer. There is a little metal in form of a cylinder which assists in protecting the bearing from been forced into the middle of the wheels immediately the axle nut is change and well thigh to get it to protect from been broken. Also, the bearing stay parallels with one another as a result of spacer assistance. If the spacers are not soft wheels or noncore wheels, it will certainly become prudent.
Location of the bearing in the wheel
The bearing is located in the wheel at the hanger, wheel, axle, bearings, speed ring, spacer, and axle nut
Composition and parts of a skateboard bearing
The large outer ring and the smaller ring compose the bearing. The little steel balls are located in between the two rings. The wheel is assisted with these which enable it to turn. The face of all the rings are cover with shields, this block any dirty thing from the bearing, so this keeps the balls to be in their position in the ball cage.
The shields are not necessary to be used when skating with ball bearing because it depends on personal interest, which is semi-open or open. It must be cleared that it impose a big risk when skating with semi-open or open bearing but at the same time, they look faster. A lot of pleasure is derived by many skaters in the slightly louder sound of the skateboard when using open bearing
Ways of retrieving bearing out the wheels.
When bearing are still in a good position and the wheels are already old, these steps can be followed to get the bearings out
- The first is to flip the deck which will give the axel chance to point upwards.
- The next is to lose the axle nut and the top speed ring is removed.
- The wheel is to be taken off the axle, and it slightly reinstalled in the angle.
- Force should not be introduced when going through the process because it will destroy the bearing. All that needed is just a little force.
All these are ways of finding skate bearing in a more excellent, although it takes some techniques and a little bit of energy. The bearings can be done by the owner of the stake when all the guides are well observed.
