Loose trucks.....
: : Since I've been skating the bowls, my trucks have gotten ridiculously loose. But with the crap weather lately :`( I might go indoors this weekend and try this one indoor park I just found out about that has a 4 foot bowl (I know not much but least its a bowl right?) and a 6 foot halfpipe. So its not just really a street course which is cool! But what do I do with my trucks? I have them tight for ramps, loose for bowls. I want to hit both and will be hitting the skatepark across the street when it opens some during the week but hitting the bowls whenever I can most the time still. Do I tighten them once around or twice for the ramps, so I can keep it straight? Or what method do others use? Or do you keep them loose for the ramps too? What do I do when I'm skating both the same day? I need something concrete so I can keep it straight cause I dont like riding around readjusting my trucks constantly.
: :
: : Lastly, any advice on soft wheel recommendations which are fast for rough surfaces? I want a killer set for landsdowne. Trying to do a trade but no word back yet from my skateboarder buddy.
: :
: : **praying for sunshine here** Grumpy since theres ice outside and I'm DYING to roll! :-( Thanx!!
: Maybe just try and get use to medium loose/tight,I dont readjust for anything,,same with all my gear,I allways use hard wheels for everything.
: cheers joe

Landsdowne was built in 1970. I was told anything harder then 90-92a will rattle your bones! Plus it would chip the hard wheels.

The guy said he has abec 11s. But I might try Kryptonics Slammers 60mm 88A, or autobahn
or ???? I have route 70 but they are like big ol soft rocks lol.

I'll try to see if the looser trucks do OK on the ramps. If not I'll try to do one around tighter and keep it at that to remember lol.
