This weeks session consisted of putting our wheel hardware sets together & fitting them to the boards.
The basic procedure was to remove the bolt & speed washers from the trucks, then add a single spacer to the axle.
A speed washer was then put back and the wheel containing the back bearing was added. The wheel spacer was then slid onto the axle & the outer bearing & speed washer added. Finally the bolt was threaded on hand tight before final adjustments were made with the skate tool. We finished off the session with adding a few stickers and awarding a couple of prizes to Tony Mitchell for a great piece of homework. Well done Tony you are a ‘Ledge’.
Next week see’s the final session with a LOT of riding to be done.
