Title: Board has problems rolling...
Post by: AnthonyFromMacedonia on July 21, 2018, 08:53:24 AM
Hi guys whatsup i ride a cruizer board and i wanna start skating. I recenetly bought a $20 No Fear Skateboard Which had really bad Bearings and truck but i replaced them with propper skateboard trucks and ABEC 5 bearings but my board doesnt really roll lot when i skate it and its really really loud. I dont know whats the problem the wheels are not too tight and they spin great when i lift the board up, but when i skate it they just dont go. Are the wheels too hard or something or what? The surface i skate on is regular street concrete. Can someone help me? Cheers!

The board is set up 100% correctly. I think the problem is that my wheels are plastic. I think they are. They are loud and dont roll well. When i hit them from the ground they almost cracked. Do urithane wheels feel the same as plastic?

Yeah those cheap boards come with terrible components, even as a first set up they're no good.

The decks are also very poor quality so would recommend getting that changed as well as soon as possible.

Welcome to skateboarding!  :)
