Hard to trust it, given the numerous spelling and grammatical errors.

Right or wrong about that, Einstein developed new scientific theories that were verifiable. The website you suggested makes some rather absurd claims, such as "A sealed and greased bearing is prefered to one that is oiled due to the fact that skateboarders simply do not clean and re-lube at intervals even close to necessary for oil use." Say what? You can't use clinical "evidence" of highly non-scientific people as fact.

No.

If someone's going to offer up proof, it needs to be proof, not an unrelated example that doesn't prove anything.

If that's how the author is going to back up his claims, I can't trust the rest of them, and neither should the rest of us.

He prefers changing broken spokes and than having a proper made wheel. I say he is crazy and the rest is suspect too.
