I tell people I dont speak english, or cant read it. They get soo mad. The younger generation expects to get shot from any and all smartassery, back then we gave all the old people shit who gave us shit, and our friends cheered us on

Sanding/filing between the peg n dropout will help the most, if youre too cool for a chain tensioner that is. If a company sold pegs with knurled ends, I bet itd catch on. You wouldnt buy un-knurled bars would you?

Grease will make your hub quiet,but the pawls can get stuck with too much, you pretty much gotta thin the grease with oil around the pawls. So no grease unless you need a quiet hub.

Im sure hes resting in lots of peace, living in an seemingly eternity of choking yourself to death. Inception logic applies to coke heads.

Buy the most expensive deck you can and land really hard. Thats the best way to get good at skat boarding. You dont even need wheels just jump off a house and post it
