    Default Freeride bushing setups

    Alright, so currently I have Sabre F/X front and back on my freeride setup with Indy Hybrids, but I feel it's too restrictive under my 130lbs. What bushing setups do you use to get the best feel while retaining functionality (i.e. so you don't end up switch and get into a sketchy situation due to asymmetrical setups) Sorry if there's already a thread about this!

    I use 81a venom cones all around at 140lbs on my Randals, but I think Indy style trucks make bushings feel softer. Maybe try some X-types all around?

    Also, if you're not great at switch, I heard that having stiffer bushings in the back will make it easier to balance when you get into switch. Once you get good at it, you'll probably want symmetrical though.
