    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.
