Indoor wheels just arrived - does anyone know if these bearings are pre lubricated or not?
Your bearings when bought new should come pre-lubed! You can usually tell if they move smoothly when you spin them, no sounds of metal-on-metal. If you've bought lube too it doesn't hurt just to give them a single drop and then spin them a couple of times. It will seem like they spin slower but this is just the lube working it's way around, that's why you should never use too much!
A few quick points about lubing your bearings:
NEVER lubricate when they are dirty, this just makes things worse!
ALWAYS dry bearings completely after cleaning them to avoid rust, then lubricate IMMEDIATELY.
I can do a complete breakdown on cleaning bearings etc... and do a practical with anyone who has a good space that they don't mind getting a little messy ^_^
