#!markdown a great tip for ensuring sealed bearings get fully coated when applying thick grease once you have packed suitable grease into the bearing, before replacing the bearing shield. Take an electric (or cordless) drill/driver, remove any bits from the chuck, wind the chuck close, gently push the chuck face against the inner bearing race and spin the bearing with the tool running at low speed. this distributes the grease throughout the bearing package. you might want to apply a little more grease on the outside before replacing bearing shield. For full suspension pivot bearings, you can do this with axle removed and the bearing still embedded in the frame 😉
