Okay now that we’ve wiped off all the hardware
and the shell and the rim, we can carefully pick up the shell making sure that the bearing
side is up and carefully place it back into the hardware making sure that you are not
scratching it or any of the lugs. You are going to want to make sure that the shell
is seated correctly in the rim here and then you are going to also make sure that the logo
is directly in front in between the 2 tension posts. So once you’ve got it in there, you
can run your finger around the bearing edge making sure that you’ve got everything off
of there. You are going to want to take your petroleum jelly and get just get a little bit here on the corner of
