Hello, I know there are plenty of videos and discussions about this but I need some advise. The only thing I could find to clean my bearings was mineral spirits. I’ve read that this is bad because it’s toxic but I wear gloves and I do this in a well ventilated place. Do the mineral spirits actually damage my bearings? I have an evolve bamboo gtx with stock bearings. I used it last night on the two front wheels, dried them with a hair dryer than put 2 drops of speed cream in each one. I also used 3 in 1 oil on the truck poles. After reinstalling the wheels they spin much longer than they did when the bearings were brand new. I still need to do the back wheels tonight but if the mineral spirits are destructive I guess I’ll have to clean the front wheels again with something else. I’m not really sure what to do now.
Also, how often do you guys clean the drive gear bearings or is this just what they call the bearings on the back wheels? I’m a novice so I need some clarification.
