    Good point that bears repeating. I use a khiro soft wedge. A roger's stop was causing my less experienced self to trip forward on small bumps, not being able to safely dismount. With time I can probalby switch back, but for now the wedge is working well.

    Hi, thanks. Washers are from V-brake pads. But deck and wedges are homemade.

    After some hesitation I covered kingpins with eppxy so that there are no threads that can damage my precious bushings. It was squeaky at first when I put bushings on, but when I after I sanded the excessive epoxy a little bit, it's much better. So I hope my bushings will last loooonger..

    D'oh, I can't believe I didn't think of that. Always use toestops on my TM DH decks. Guess I've have the GBomb brackets with infinity bolts for so long I just never gave any thought to changing the bolts out.

    @LOCOMOTE, I like the practicality of the spray on grip for my purposes. Going to have to try that.

    Searched my basement and came up with nothing but low grit tape. Ended up regluing the old grip down with 3M spray adhesive and sticking some left over strips of Vicious in critical areas. Someday I'll get around to a proper regrip.

    A good ol' homer simpson moment!

    I have numerous toe stops on my LDP and LDPush decks because it's just one less thing that I have to worry about when putting the miles behind me. Especially when you're getting exhausted and delirious, it's nice to second nature know you can keep inching your foot up until you find that toe stop sweet spot you set up for yourself without having to worry about stepping on your wheel.

    I would be dead without foot stops on my distance pump/push setup. Messed up a few elbows discovering this problem.

    I resole my "running" shoes used for LDP. I use Barge Cement after sanding rubber strips and shoe soles with an orbital sander. I use 1/8" rubber strips from a company called Rubber Roll. http://www.rubbersheetroll.com/rubber_strips.htm

    Now my expensive running shoes last about 3 years instead of 1 year. I use them until the rest of the shoe breaks down. If you do it right, replacement soles will have to be worn down - you can not pull them off. Better to use ShoeGoo up front (ball of foot) and RubberRoll strips for heels. ShoeGoo will not stand up to foot braking, but will last almost forever pivoting on grip tape.

    So, I'm looking for a new pumping truck that maximizes the distance between the kingpin and hanger, and the ground. I can't fit a finger between the kingpin and ground on my Sk8kings Maximus with a Bennett on the front.

    Any recommendations?
    yes, an uber-grippy, square-lipped slalom wheel IS the best for sliding

    Glass top carbon bottom. Flex 3 (I'm 225). Throwing my Cybins on her as soon as I grip . Much better suited platform than the Mystery Model I was running them on.

    My Poppies feel pretty dead without much spring to them when pumping. Has anyone else felt like Poppies did not have much rebound - still running the stock bushings?

    I have an inclining the dead feeling is caused by the switch from a flexible board to a stiff one, more so than a switch in trucks from a RKP back & Bennet front to the Poppies. However, I want my pumping setup to feel livelier than it does now. Any suggestions?

    My old pumping deck was stolen from me so I can't slap the Poppies on that deck to try them out.

    I also liked the twitchy-ness of the Bennet setup, which the Poppies don't seem to have as much twitch.

    I got the Poppies to increase my efficiency, but with a stiff board and the stock bushing I'm feeling like pumping is more effort than it was on my old setup.

    Also, do you guys like to run wheel spacing that is wider front and skinnier back, or wider back with skinnier front?

    I had to remove the bushings and lube the barring in the hanger real tight had no oil on it. for spacing, I keep them the same. You may want to put a bit of wax on the bushings.
