|Thanks, wasnt sure if those hard wheels would throw me on the street, but they are wide and big so I think they would roll over rocks OK. I dont want to change wheels constantly and strip my nuts.
I havent skated long enough to know enough about bushings or anything about how skateboard trucks ride in comparison. I ride with soft bushings now but not sure the number and these are extra soft. I thought I read you are only supposed to have 1 1/2 threads beyond the nut on the kingpin cause then you lose action? I donno. I have no idea what I will want on my trucks til I skate since I was told these might be tighter then my ramp trucks even. I guess I have to wait til Lisa gets back with me on my bushings cause I can put harder ones on the top. I just dont want to strip my nuts or crush good bushings finding this out.
Dang, I'm psyched about my skates! I'm gonna have a BLAST tomorrow. Its been almost a month since I've had on my vert skates. My knees feelin ok and I got a brace just in case. I got these centered really perfect this time so they should roll awesome and its gonna be the best day of my life skating these babies. I wonder if I can slide a curb lol?
: Well as you probably already know, I don't know much about equipment. You will find with the wider trucks that you can't turn as sharp or quickly. I like to keep mine really loose, but sometimes it makes me pinch my trucks while riding. As far as street, I can barely turn. I don't think the harder wheels will hurt you at all because you will not turn sharp enough to slide.
: : Got the bolts and bushings! Can I skate 95a skateboard wheels on a fairly smooth asphalt parking lot or is that not a good idea? I can put on my aerobics for now. I want to get used to my new skates since I've never had skateboard trucks. Tomorrow I will finish them up and ready for a spin! I'm BACK!!
: : Also, got 73a bushings Khiro, I'm trying to find out from Lisa what my black soft bushings were from suregrip I assume, I donno. Will this be too soft or is it a good idea to have the trucks loose? If too soft, I can put a harder cushion on the trucks by the plate? Or is it OK to have a couple threads left past the nut? I wanted the softest cause I was going to use jump bars at the time, thats why. But since these trucks are supposed to be unresponsive, will I want them looser? I just dont want to ruin my nuts too soon by making too many changes.
