Ideally you will remove the bearings first before cleaning, but make sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions in doing so. Next degrease the bearings before giving them a thorough rinse. Once they are dry, re-grease the bearings, before fitting them to your bike using a dedicated bearing press.
