This is my first video but i wanted to make it actually meaningful so ive filmed my reds bearings spinning for their full duration. The Reds only get better with time Enjoy!

Here Is my Complete Method for Bearing Cleaning so that your reds can spin ridiculously long as well...

1. Remove the rubber shields with a very small flathead screwdriver.

2. Fill a stainless steel bowl with acetone used for woodworking and painting.

3. Toss the bearings with the shields removed into the acetone bowl and using gloves try to get all the little particulates of dirt and debris out of the bearing (Sometimes taking the bearing out of the bowl and trying to hit the open end against a towel on the ground can help).

4. Take the bearings out of the acetone and spin them around my finger to make sure all the dirt is gone, and then allow them to air dry.

5. While the bearings are drying grab all of the removed shields (For those of you who don't know, a shield is the rubber protector that would be red on the Bones Reds Bearings), take them to a clean sink, and wash them off with soap and water. Be VERY CARFUL not to bend the shields as they are make of soft metal and are very flimsy. Dry w/Rag.

6. Now that your shields are clean, come back to the bearings and rinse them out with water, yes water. Before you do this make sure you have a pressured air canister to quickly dry them out with. Once rinsed, dry with compressed air.

7. Put ONE, only one drop of speed cream in every bearing (8 drops total), and then carefully put the shields back on making sure they are correctly sealed and not halfway out.

Okay, FINALLY, all that I do after all this is spin the bearing around my finger to spread the lube around in the bearing and you will notice that after about 10-15 hard spins with your finger, that the bearing will be spinning longer and longer. When you have all the bearings spinning at a good speed, take a little cloth and lightly pat off the excess lube from the outside of the bearing if there is any.

Ps. Feedback Appreciated, Ratings as well
