I built my very 1st pair of SK8s today!
: Thanks again everybody for bearing with me through yet another of seemingly pointless posts. I'm just so Stoked on actually building my own SK8s! I think they're gonna work too! I rolled around on both on patio & other than maybe adjusting my stance a bit wider, just in case, I think they're gonna work just fine.
: Now that lack of Toe-Stops on the other hand..........
: So, any advice from my ToeStop-Free friends would be appreciated. Before I bust my Ass!
: PEACE!!!!.............................Jay

Advice : Don't use toe stops. Extra weight and get in the way. :P Learn hockey slides, t-stops, wedge stops, etc. Or go to the video posted below.

btw, on the front trucks, I only put two bolts all the way through & into the boot. That way, my toes aren't smashed down from the very front bolts pulling the toe area down.
