How do you know when it's time for the FIRST cleaning/lube of new bearings?
Once a month and you will be fine. I know of guys that do it once a week.
How many hours would you typically skate before doing the first cleaning/lube?roughly 20hrs or 4 sessions out here

My situation is indoor quad skating, pretty clean floors, I only notice a little dust on the wheels/trucks so far after about 15 hrs total. Bearings have covers, still rolling about as good as the first time out. Skates stored indoors, cool/dry conditions.
I carry a bottle of speed cream,q-tips,rags and a can of air duster for computers in my bag to clean if needed at the rink.

Thanks everyone!

Hope this helps buddy
