So confused about wheels
: : I just put in new bearings and I will let you know how it goes. I had a pretty good session today. I am going to get some of Rollergirls vert skates with the wide sure grip trucks. I wonder how long it will take to get used to the wider trucks. I am guessing they are a lot less responsive?

: Turning is harder at first but you get used to it.


You will gain stability at speed and can lean into carves much harder. Loose trucks will make turning easier. Experiment to get the right combo for turning and stability. Careful not to let your feet get too close to each other, your wider trucks may catch and trip you up. Something sidesurfer need not worry about.
