    Default Fun With Milk Crate Sliding and Flat Spots

    One of our decks had a substantial flat spot, so we decided to continue sliding it and see how far we could wear down the wheel. By the end of it, we had this:






    Even though the wheel didn't spin anymore, we were still able to get some speed down the hill and do a couple of slides before the wheel completely fell apart.



    Grow old or die trying.

    Awesome lookin.
    Never seen something that thrashed.
    This is Silverfish, take it with a grain of salt. It's fun to come back to at the end of the day, but nothing beats the real deal. Make your own judgments and form your own opinions. Remember whose lens you're looking through!

    Really? I first saw it awhile ago, and got to try it a few times. It's a lot of fun, and there's a lot you can do (surprisingly enough). Gotta love the Sit 'n Slide.
    A few videos to get you inspired:

    And as for being the first person on the 'fish to ride wheels down to the bearings, and for generously posting some badass pictures, I must congratulate you.
