I haven't ever cleaned the set of Bones Swiss bearings that I have had in my quads. They're over 15 years old. Granted, I skate maybe a few times a year on them, but still...

For my inlines, I buy sets of 8mm NMB double shielded bearings from Randy Welch, who runs the Second Chance Skates Facebook page. I get them when he runs the 3 sets of 16 for $50 deals, so they end up being pennies over $1 per bearing. I use them in both pairs of speed skates that I use for both practices and competitions. When a bearing gets crunchy, or I get caught in the rain, into the trash they go.
Indoor Inline: Pinnacle Full Customs | Simmons SR110 4x110 | TLTF/Simmons | NMB
Outdoor Inline: Simmons Full Customs | Simmons SR110 4x110 | Junk Wheels | NMB
Quads: Reidell 911 | Roll-Line Mistral | Corey Super-Ds/JG Hubs | Bones Swiss
