This may sound retarded but how do you put grease into your  Bearings? just get a small blob then work it in around the sealed area or what?
This area

Just checking to make sure ive been doing it right for the last few years :X


Unless they are rough or stiff, then just put it around the inside where it contacts.

To get it actually inside where the balls are, use a small flathead and pry up the seal from the inner area.

A tiny bit of Phil's is what I use. However in many cassettes they use oil. Some you almost have to use oil. I prefer the grease because it makes them pretty quiet.

Oil? like what type of oil? would brake fluid work? or vasoline?

i did read but i just want a straight answer so i can go and get some. i worry mostly about my brake includidng the springs and my back wheel. the chain is not so much of a worry i dont know why. so the best stuff for cables? Best stuff for cassete bearings?(anything other than thick grease i like to roll as fast as poss) and chains. and also for the driver is wd40 ok? ive been using it and it seems fine but im not 100% sure it will be ok in the long run.

White Lightening for cables and chain (plastic bottle NOT the spray).
Phil grease for bearings.

Go to the local auto parts store and get anti-seize. Total, under $15.

i liek to use bikelust, i think made by pedros, to clean my bike its so good puts a nice wax coating on my bike frame and makes it smell nice. for my chain i would use clean streak the first time and then use pedros ice wax for the first time then after that just icewax. icewax is the best shit ever, good in like all conditions.  i even use for my mtb
