    Default Bushing chart

    okay, so I just wanted to get all the bushing colors/duros/brands on to one chart and this is what I came up with. I obviously didn't get them all, or incorperate shapes into it, so everyone feel free to add on everything you can.

    This seems like a helpful chart, for when/if I am too lazy to look up on the manufacturer's site what duro my bushings of a given color are.
    But here is a question. What if I can't tell which brand my bushings are, and I want to know what duro they are? Like, I just forget one day how a purple sabre looks different from a purple venom. What then?

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but when i don't know my bushing duro, i bite on the one i don't know, and one i do know, then compare.

    I actually don't doubt it. they are cones, so they feel like 5a lower than a barrel would. randals i know for a fact are 92a. I was just looking on different store websites, and one had sector9 bushings. those were the duros that that site said.

    I was hoping for this answer.
    I myself am a huge fan of the bite test. Except I don't compare, I just bite them to see if they feel like the right hardness for the application. Also gives a feel of the rebound of the bushing.

    The wiki is out of date. Would you like to double check it and add what I've got there on your chart?

    That's good stuff.

    i know i read somewhere on the fish that there was a scale, depicting what duro you should use according to your weight. now the guy was completely flamed for it, and tons of people claimed it useless saying "just use what you want."
    but as a beginner, i can't just randomly pick up bushings and just use them (i probably could but u know what i mean), so i found that scale quite useful even if experienced riders didnt.. might be a nice thing to add imo =/
