How do bearings figure in to this? A student asked me for a book or article that would describe how to make a skateboard go faster. He was interested in bearings and seemed to think it was the make-up of the wheels that makes the biggest difference. I do not have such a book (I am a media specialist in a middle school) but wanted him to have an answer. Your response is appreciated.
