After a lot of use, skateboard bearings can lose their maximum speed. Once the internal balls of the skateboard bearings come into contact with moisture or dirt, the bearings will cease to roll smoothly.

Why should I choose to wear skateboarding shoes over normal sneakers when skateboarding?

Skateboarding shoes are made to withstand the punishment that a skateboarder gives them. Also the grip tape on a skateboard can shred normal sneakers; specific shoes for skateboarders have a thick gum sole and can last longer.

Everytime i change the shift it feels sticky,what can i do to make this shifter run smooth?

Dirty oil in the gearbox is the usual cause for sticky shifters. Another cause is dirt on the shifter shaft. Clean any mud and road grime from the shaft where it goes into the gearbox.

It is running very slowly and i have oiled everything i could

First check the motor belt to see if it is slipping. If it is not, remove it and see if the motor turns easily with no load. This tests both the motor and speed control. If the motor runs slow with no load, try turning it by hand to see if the bearings are getting sticky.

If the motor runs with no load, try turning the machine by hand to feel for stickiness or rough spots in the mechanism. You may have a thread tangle somewhere that is causing a lot of drag - inspect the bobbin mechanism and the fabric advance plate by the needle.
