Sierra Crew base and edge bevel

I purchased a Sierra Crew last season and I was curious if anyone knew what the factory base and edge bevel are? If not I was thinking about doing a 1 degree on the base and the edge for a 90 degree edge angle. I am mostly a freerider and don't do too much park. Any input is greatly appreciatted. I want to be able to do all of the stuff on my board by myself haha. Snowolf wisdom would be good too.

People normally don't change their edge for freeriding. So I didn't touch my edges except for sharpening them.

So.... when you sharpen your base edge what angle do you set?

I have a Custom, which is basically a Sierra Crew anyway and I use 1 degree on my base edge tool, but I still don't know what the factory setting is. I just took my best guess.

Haha it might not be a bad idea to just ask on sierra. I'm sure they would know...

Right, i just want to clean and sharpen up my edges for this season, not change anything. I emailed Sierra about this before and they had no idea. Maybe Burton tech support would help if you say its an '08 Custom.
