Habicork bork showed up at my door.
Sanded the graphic off this morning. Still thinking of what I wanna put on it.



I also found a pair of cts mids for $8 at the thrift store near my house. I had to shoegoo the soles back on a little, and I peeled out the dirty old insoles and dropped in a pair of habitat footwear insoles I've had stashed away. Loved the last pair I had (not really for skating but just for wearing around) but had to throw them out after I stepped in a big pile of shit. Glad to finally replace them.

Just went to good will and got this gem. The Kicker? Even though you can see the tag says $5.99 it only rang up as $2.99!




SORRY FOR THE BIG ASS PICTURES!

Didn't buy it technically, but got this as a gift from a friend not too long ago. I'm surprised at how square the nose and tail are. I know a good chunk of PS decks are pretty square, but I wasn't expecting it to be like this. Gonna be quite the change from the rounder and pointier Baker B16 shape that I usually ride.

After a solid recommendation from jsoy and skating nallid's at the park, I'm a firm believer in these.  Fast as hell right out of the box, never worry about spacers or speed rings again.

Mine have broken in and they spin like I'm riding them loose....but they are as tight as my mounting hardware....

I try and explain them to people and no one gives a shit though.....

bmc was explaining this to me at the park the other day. does your board make a thud sound almost like when you have softer wheels or do you get that crispy rattle when you drop it or are skating around? (if that makes sense)

I have similar design bearings, just not Bones. Definitely no rattle but that's the way I prefer it. Also I don't want to fuck around with speed rings (or spacers) if I don't have to. I know there's a big divide on the opinion about the necessity of spacers, but at least having the races protrude enough to not have to use speed rings should be something everyone can get behind. Getting rid of small fiddly parts is brilliant.

The thing to keep in mind as well is that speed rings and spacers exist because 608 bearings weren't designed for skateboards. They're actually for large sewing machines and stuff like that.  Extended race bearings are how a skateboard specific bearing would be designed if skating was invented today

What makes them different from standard Bones Reds?

Extended race that makes it so you don't have to use a spacer or speed rings

Those bearings are good and using spacers is good in theory but I feel like it depends on if the space inside of a certain wheel matches with the length of the spacers that are being used. The length for both varies a lot, so sometimes if you have a situation where the spacer is too long compared to the wheel it could actually damage the bearings. I've actually had this happen before in the past and fucked up my bearings pretty badly.
The dude in this vid does a good job explaining it, starts at around 0:40

Just the fact the nut sits on the race and not your shield is enough for me.....there's less contact points.....

I feel relatively confident bones and spits the cores are pretty standard.....

I get it....it's the Internet...'aha!  It's not 100% right...so it's WRONG'

Just think the design is an improvement and would beat the quality of a standard bearing...
