Woohoo! Bike axle regreasing (repacking)

Today I managed to open up and regrease both front and rear bike axles. This means I've now opened up just about every single part on a bike and repair just about every issue one might run into.

To self:
Front axle uses bearing cages*. Rear axle uses loose bearings**. 9 of them, to be precise.

*bearing cages = ball bearings in a metal donut, pretty much.
**loose bearings = loose ball bearings.

I also replaced my chain. It might be two links too long though - I need to check tomorrow.
