    Hey folks,

    Just cleaned my bearings, now looking to re-lube. I've heard "White Lightning" chain lube can work well (for bicycles), but I'm curious as to who has actually used it and how long it lasts. I don't like the process of cleaning, so I'm hoping to go with something that will last longer than a light grease but not impair the skating too much. The process is a time-consumer...

    I have a bottle of the White Lightning already, and I'm considering trying it, but I'm worried that it will be obnoxiously difficult to remove if I'm not happy with it...

    If it helps, the bearings are Mission Swiss bearings.

    What do you use/recommend?

    Mostly I use sealed bearings now and replace them, but plain old white lithium grease does the trick, doesn't really matter what brand.
