Hi I'm past 1050 miles on my odometer. I'm consirned on when to know I should do some tune up or lubercation to the wheel's ball bearings. I'm just worried that it may lead to something with the wheel breaking. Just because I consider the worst outcome so I can be on the safe side.

So my main question is should anyone reaching this point on their bike worry about lubing their ball bearings?

Grease em up Movem out Rawhide EEEhaw.

On a wall-e-world bicycle you better lube everything before you ride.
On my brand new Roadmaster Mt Fury the front wheel bearings fell out when I went to check them. NO lube at all.
I finally lubed the rear bearings when my freewheel failed. about a month later.
My front forks were also dry and rattled a bit.
I was busy greasing the engine and let the bike down.

Can someone point me to that site that has the videos on how to do the bearings? Can't seem to find it, and it was good poo-poo. I haven't checked anything...nothing is squeking or feeling funny, but I should probably check...

Thanks!
