    I can only realistically fit 2 bearing spacers between the hanger and the inside wheel bearing...Those Royal trucks have incredibly tight tolerances on the axle!

    I've shuffled wheels and trucks around some after snapping the Street Lite. Anyway, ended up with some spare 4.25s so I started looking at other freestyle decks and really digging this Decomposed Signed Reggie Barnes. Looks totally sick. And Reggie's a North Kakalaki guy. Gonna put the trucks and some Slammers on it and hang it up. I feel good giving Decomposed some business right now. every little bit helps these local businesses.

    She's here. Kinda lame to put Slammers on her but perfect width with no washers and strictly a wall hanger of course..

    I got a 45 minute session in yesterday finally. between the virus, shit weather, exhaustion, etc I hadn't felt much like it. I worked on switchblades the problem I noticed was either pushing them too hard and over rotating, or not pushing hard enough and under rotating. I'm also getting a little stress crack near my back truck. I'll probably do a new setup when it gets really bad. I've already got a replacement deck and I've pretty much gotten my $32 out of the one I'm riding now.
