Didn't really need a new set of bearings, but I was hyped on the little edit Modus did with Sylvain Tognelli...so, they sold me a set of their titanium bearings. ;D

Rebuilding my trusty ACE 44s w/mag plates:

Krux downlow kingpins


Krux Bushings (might have to shave them, we'll see)


Khiro soft pivot cups




Prepping for the next round of Scumco boards (longer wheelbases!)

Rebuild success:


I can't say they are much lighter than stock but they have much more grind clearance now. No shaving of the bushings needed, just a bit of force to have threads catch and boom! No more wiggly kingpins; worth it for sure. Just need to pick a new a deck!

Bought the blue ones. Found them at Ross. I needed a dressy shoe for work. These are just dressy enough. Hopefully they're comfortable and I don't mess them up.




Also got these Spitfire hats.



And last but not least, I got this shirt.
Shopping at Zumiez.....

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

Were they easy to install and adjust? I was reading on the NHS site that you might not be able to adjust these kingpins on ace/indy base-plates unless the truck is unmounted and you can hold the nut in position....

These look good, but if I need to take the trucks off to tighten or loosen, then I'm good. Too much work for me.

$60 was a little too steep for me as a student, let us know how it is when you get it!

Found the original black Huf Dylan's at this sort of skate shop in San Antonio called Fast Forward for $60. Didn't buy any cuz they're not my thing, but figured I'd share for all those fan boys who'd kill for a pair. They also have the burgundy ones. Multiple pairs in sizes 7 through 13. Give them a call, maybe they'll mail you a pair...

I picked up a pair of the Romero Laced, really stiff but breaking them in this week.
Also, as I joke friends and I picked up a copy of Tony Hawk Ride, it's jut terrible and kinda funny.

The Thrasher Skate and Destroy beanies are shallow.  I can only wear shallow beanies because my head is weird shaped or something and normal beanies make me look like a cone head.  Make sure you only get the Thrasher ones made by Elm Beanie Co.

That might be your problem. From my experience in washing my own beanies, it'll go back to it's original form, at least close to it, if you wash it.
