While waiting for my kit to arrive, I keep thinking of things I should do during assembly.

One of the ones that come to mind is packing the bearings. Easier before than after.

So:

!) Is packing the bearings before assembly a good idea?

2) If it is, what lubricant is recommended? Lithium? SuperLube? Nothing black like Moly...

3) Any other pre-assembly considerations I should be thinking about?

Excellent article. Thank you! Added to my reference folder.

Off to find a tube of SuperLube... "Liquid Bearings" was also highly recommended - but that is an oil.
