"Your looking at it the wrong way. Get the rust to spread to every bit of exposed steel on your board. Spray the rest of your board with some black primer. Put some white paint on the outside edge of the wheels(like white walls), Slap on a "moon…"

"people spend way too much time worrying about bearings when they make the least amount of difference to your ride... if they spin they work. its your wheels and your skill that make you ride better and smoother. bearings dont mean shit"

"I prefer maintainable bearings with inbuilt spacers to double sealed bearings. I agree Bugs, no need for the second inner seal. The point to maintainable bearings is that you look after them; the Biltins design makes this easy. Avoid rust by regular…"

"pah. Best thing you can do to your bearings is leave them the hell alone. a bit of surface rust on the outer race never hurt anyone. Acetone will degrade the rubber shields on rubber shielded bearings, so yeah go ahead and soak em in that stuff if…"
