Hello folks

Will there be any other Skate maintenance session/lesson in the New Year that us newbies can attend? - I fiddled with mine a bit a created a slight disaster which Blaze kindly rectified but it'd be great to get them taken apart and know what the hell I am actually mean to be doing with them. Right now I am terrified of all the bits and bobs and You Tube has only made it worse.

Ooh it would be great if someone could organise one for you guys. Good for bonding too. I'd be up for helping out, but am the worst person to run one of these sessions! There are many many people better than me at skate maintenance!

Sunny Sheeba has already approached me to ask for my availability to run a session soon! She will be making an announcement shortly!

Haha, I actually *like* cleaning my bearings. It's a nice relaxing Sunday morning activity - nothing like the whiff of solvent while sipping my coffee.

I'm sure white spirit is the reason why I have a very very pretty, but stupid, cat.

I've NEVER cleaned nor changed my bearings. The most I've done is give them a wipe with a paper towel!
