whenever I pump, my ripstick sqeaks, any ideas on what it is/how to fix it? Answered

I got a ripstick at a yardsale, and when I ride it, It squeaks. I think it might just be the ball bearings that need oiled, but who knows. Do you have an idea?

put it in a barrel of lard for a few hours. or, if you dont have a barrel of animal fat lying around, give it a good bath and put some motor oil in each joint.
