    Front caster making a ticking sound...But ONLY frontwards!

    My caster wheels are making a ticking sound but only when rolling forward and on hard flat surfaces. When I?m outside rolling on asphalt, the ticking sound almost stops completely.

    I tried oiling the bearings and and the sound still persists.

    Whaat could be causing the ticking sound?

    HAIR the dreaded HAIR monster has gotten your caster. It has wrapped around the axle and invaded the bearing. KILL IT, KILL IT.
