Hello all, bearings need some cleaning and lubrication. Normally i sm using oil, but it dissapear very fast after some sessions. I have encountered using grease last longer and less dirty bearings. Anyone has some suggestion for a good bearing grease? Thank you!

for further info.... check posts from member GREAZER who is a champion for greased bearings. He is knowledgeable about the subject and what is available in Europe as he is a Netherlands racer. PM him with your specifics?

I think I recall that you are an inline skater.

I put 'double-sealed' bearings into the 3 sets of skates I maintain when we are training. In the spring here in U.S. farm country we have a lot of fine dust from farm fields that directly border our trail that gets into our bearings. I finally said 'enough of this crap!! ' and put in Twincam ILQ-X mr2 into all our wheels. These bearings are not easy to work with when removing from wheels... but seem to be better at staying clean. When racing I swap back to each person's "race" bearings. One goes to his full ceramic, I go to ceramic ball... my wife gets whatever I feel like it at the time.

Greazer recommended Superlube. I switched to it from oil last year and have been happy.

I have used Tri-Flow Synthetic grease and it works very well. Fast break-in period and lasts quite a while.
