161

After skating the 161 trucks since April I would say that we have a truck that is kind of special. It turns very precise, aggressive but still smooth and rather than changing the wedging we have other ways to adjust the turning for tight, hybrid and GS. So if you have a chance to try them, please do...

I guess that one of the reasons for creating a World record format with rules is that it will be the same circumstances for all racers that make an attempt to break the record. The cyber and the 50-cones are the most clear ones and are quite easy to follow. Same distance, no elevation. In Cyber you ...

And thank you Pat for taking the initiative to this event. Never ever before where there that many skaters trying to set records all over the world. Cool. We had a lot of fun and doing the 100 cone was just incredible, the last 20 cones fees like a colored line rather than separate cones . Well any...

It was truly a great event, starting with a GS and great weather. And although we had some bad luck with rain, the guys managed to get all races done. A super set-up for the outdoor and a great "Plan B" set-up indoors. So again Thank you Gothenburg team for making this happen and all great skaters f...

Just get the right tools

You need to get the bearing ... no need to tell Get hold of a drill that will make it possible to fit that bearing. mine is 19 x 6 x 10 mm. 19 mm in diameter, 6 mm thick and 10mm "inside" "kingpin". So you need in this case a 19mm drill. Fix the hanger firmly in a "controlled" area. Place the drill ...

Bearing-loaded splitfires

I've just modified 2 90mm and 1 107mm front and one 90mm rear.
So far I can only say that they behave beautifully. Quicker turn, yes, but also more precise.
I’ve also lowered my wedging to 16 dgr, in front and flat rear.
So if anyone have any thought … just try it.
