My son is down at Meadowbank pretty much every waking moment when he's not at school. I'll be taking him down there again tonight - with my daughter riding her bike around the paths and me on my '86 retro board. I'll just stick to cruising; not way I'm getting in the bowl on that death machine!

OK so around 90 is medium hardness and good for all round stuff?
And just go for mid size around 55mm?

Yep, when all I did was street it was 60mm 90a powell cross bones. My current board has 101a 56mm minilogo things which seem ok. Fine on ramps anyway. Bit clattery for street

90a about right for what she’s after. And size also sounds about right. Though still recommend calling basement skate. Them dudes know their stuff.

My new toy.
Smooth, rolls very well. Still breaking in the wheels and figuring out the bushing looseness I can get away with.

He'd probably recognise it as a longboard, fit for my purposes.
But if he did, he'd only have to tell me once for me to understand his argument.

I'm too old to be dropping into halfpipes or learning how to kickflip.
Even though with croissant gone I'm probably the youngest here.

Did you ever get one?
It sorts out any front leg technique issues pretty quickly.

The spacers determine this rather than tension, right? Noting that you didn't actually name the method.

got a couple of cheap ones from BigW ......which I replaced wheels and bearings on and work fine.

30 bucks each.

Post em up. You knows the rules.

Cranked I'm just talking about how hard you tighten down on the bushings. I had them too tight to start with.

It is the four wheel bearings we're talking about? Varying tension on the nuts should not affect the ease of rotation of the wheels. The nuts only need to be tight enough so they don't fall off.
