I clean my bearing a few times a year.
I have a set of 8 ball fafnirs from the 83 era, and a set of bones swiss from the same era.
I dont have a prefrence, they roll excellant enough for competition.
I skate a couple of times a week for 5 or 6 hours per day. Constant skating.

Back in the day I used to run the 7mm hartfords on my clunker skates,, used them outside, used to play indoor soccer with them, floor hockey... you know just junker skates.... I did maintain them, couldnt really kill them if they kept maintained.

Maintenance is all in what you deem critical. My bearing come Nationals time, get cleaned and oiled, tight around the same time that I polish my boots after a long year of practice.....

Mind you I did stop skating for 18 years, but I still use these bearing todate...

YMMV
