Introduction

To do this replacement you need to make sure you have the correct size allen wrench and the washer fits properly because each roller blade has different specifications. If you do not put the washer on correctly it could cause the wheels to not spin as freely as they should. This fix is neccesary because if the washer is warped the wheels wont spin well or at all causing the front wheel to lock up.

Parts
