150 lbs

5.8 Venture with Ace bushings, sanded down to fit.

Not sure how I feel about it but have skated them like that for a few months. Love Ace stock bushings in my Ace 55s but not sure I get the same feel on the Ventures, but at least is better than the stocks. Thinking of maybe trying some red soft indy bushings. Anyone tried those in Ventures?

I wonder if age should be in there too (45).

190 lbs (about 86 kgs)

Indy standard 149s, sometimes stock just to feel them out or even cut the top down a mm but mostly switch straight out for the aftermarket Indy red 92 duro low head that came in the white box, which I bought a lifetime supply of before they changed to the new softer clear plastic containers for their bushings.

Skate mellow everything but more so transition nowdays, so still like loose trucks but stable enough not to wobble on an easy hill bomb, if that makes sense.

I talk too much.  Sorry.

Just bought some Indy Mids, and Iím having bushing problems.

Iím on the heavy side, weighing 190lbs. I ride my trucks medium.

The Mids come with the standard orange bushings, but I tighten them down as far as I could and theyíre way too loose still. Either the kingpin hit the board, or the kingpin ran out of thread.

I swapped out the stock orange bushings for the Indy Hard bushings (black). Theyíre not bad, but I keep wanting to loosen them. The hard bushing just donít have the responsiveness and bounce I like.

I would get the Indy Medium-Hard bushings (blue), but I canít find them anywhere. Shortyís Doh-Dohís has some that are 92a, same as the Indy Medium-Hard.

Anyone have any advice or experience with this? Are Doh-Dohís any good? Are they the same height as Indy bushings?

Thank you in advance!

How long have you been skating the Indy black bushings? I hated them when I first got them but they felt great after breaking in (maybe took 2 weeks or so).

Iíve had a couple sessions on them. Theyíre starting break in, but Iím still missing the rebound I had with the medium bushings. I feel like Iíll start to like them, but wanted other Pals opinions and seeing if anyone had any suggestions.

I have Indy 139's, put the 92a blue conical bushings on there 1/4 turn looser than stock tightness and it is kind of nice actually. Curvin' and swervin' and they don't feel ridiculously loose. Would recommend.

55mm OG classics. No risers. Been solid, no crazy wheelbite. actually loosened them up a touch from stock (but is all ďstockĒ the same?) to avoid the bushing-spilling-over the washer thing and theyíve been fine. Pretty stable. Like them just trying to adjust to the wb shift and pop

150 lbs. - 6 ft. tall

bones hards on back. bones meds on front. flat washers top + bottom and nuts flush on both trucks.

cruiser/retro setups are indy aftermarket blue 92 cylinders. depending on truck width, will use with different washer types for more/less resistance.

6ft tall 188lb bones yellow (I think medium?) trucks that shake like crazy. Unfortunately adult life/injuries has me skating pretty much never so the loose surfy trucks arenít that comfortable anymore. When I tighten them even a half turn I feel like I canít even move so idk iíll probably just quit

Stock. Everything stock.

Old-guy rant incoming...WTF is up with people and their custom truck tweaks? The more you tweak your trucks the more shit that will need to be adjusted over time and the more fucked you are when you can't find you special magic bushings at the shop. Stock bushings are fine if you run them with the stock tightness. Cranking them down just stresses the material before it is broken in and causes weak spots that eventually split. Also, rotate front/back every time you setup a new board.

I know a guy who is really particular about his trucks and is constantly fucking with them before he even starts skating. Little tight on the front little loose on the back...slam...little tight on the back little loose on the front...slam...swap bushings fiddle with trucks...slam...fiddle...slam...focus board sit down and pout. Indys/Thunder/Venture suck...as if it's not his balance that is the problem.

I had to ďtweakĒ thunder and venture to really enjoy them but thatís just risers and washers bushings still stock. Indy and ace are perfect stock Ur nuts if you canít break em in and enjoy yourself.. only possible issue is cold weather, feels like thatís why bones are so popular and you dont have to break them in, sometimes feels like they donít turn quite as well though idk

bones medium, no washer bottom, slim flat washer that comes with the bushings on top (i recently changed the other way around and coming from indy 159 + bones medium --> ace 55 stock felt no much of a difference to me) although that little extra turn you get on the aces does not exist with indy no matter what bushings you run em with
