i have been having issues with 1 of my bearings popping out of the wheel non stop. i just could not get it to stay in no matter what trick i used. i ended up using a tooth pick and some blue RTV silicone to fix it. just use the tooth pick to apply a VERY small dab on the inner lip of the bearing in a couple of areas and insert bearing. let sit for a few minutes and good to go. it will still be removable if needed later. just make sure to stay away from the inner edge.
just figured i would pass that along in case anyone else had that problem.

Most of the time they are quite tight.  I haven't had any pop out.  Try turning that energy into increased momentum in the forward direction !!!

Nice job. If it happens again just switch bearings around until one fits better.

I am relatively new to this forum. I have enjoyed reading all of your posts. I am extremely grateful for all of the good information. You all have been extremely helpful. Does anyone have good advise how to safely remove bearings? I have some goat wheels on order that I would like to transfer some bearings from bsa wheels into.

I use an Exacto knife and slowly work it around the bearing flange where it meets the wheel. Then I use my finger nails and pull gently until its out. Do it over a sheet or something in case it tries to get away from you.
