    What on earth is the middle piece in the white skate. I was told I got the right size (purple) but now I'm missing something. What? PXL_20210223_203409021.jpg

    The skating rinks are poofing out of thin air. I'm surprised I have one near.

    Yes, they have ball bearings. The two metal rings will be the inner and outer races and the the red plastic will be the cage that retains the balls. I think.

    Yeah. And they are a bugger to pull in. Went to ask about it, so we'll see when I'm on the floor would I be sliding to the music or falling to the music

    I have one within a hundred metres that doubles as an over 40s club at night.

    Make of that as you will. I have not visited.

    For skateboards, but since the wheels are identical the procedure should be the same.

    I had to buy a tool to pop the bearings from my old wheels to the purple ones. I don't know if I got them too tight or if it's just the wheels since I went from a 98A(if I remember correctly) to a 108A thickness so, it seems the wheels are a bit smaller.

    Don't ask me. I have not ridden a board for ages. You should have seen my broken foot. It was a doozy.
