ahh yes thanks for those tips...i think the blue bushing one is fine...but if after today i find it hard to turn, i'll get the "weaker" bushing. I read about the little squares, didn't see what that was all about, maybe i'm blind....will look again...but i think for the most part, my feet were just behind the screws. I keep wanting to put my back foot on the tail tho...which I'll do sometimes to do a 180 or something...but for the most part, i'm keeping in my snowboarding stance....feels right. Believe me I felt the quads burnin' yesterday! More time will tell if i need to make adjustments.
Bones Reds are wicked bearings. If you want them to last even longer, just clean them. And it takes about a year of hard use to go through one pack, so I can only imagine how much longer they will last with cleaning. Do te t-boards have different shaped bushings, or do you guys use longboard ones?
