I like how your board has those shaved spots for the wheels (I don't know if there's a technical term for them). I have an Arbor, also. I get wheel bite if I lean back far enough. I've eaten asphalt a couple of times because of it.

Haven't experienced that yet, about to go for a push now, I probably just jinxed myself.

Ya, the wheel wells. You really shouldn't get wheel bite unless your wheels are too big for your board, or you lean too hard.

get 1/4" risers and you will be good.
1/8" should work if your bite is barely touching

This question is for you sliders out there: how is it that when you do a coleman your back foot doesn't slip off the board? I've been watching videos and it just seems to me that it would just slip off or something.....

I only coleman to speed check. So I hardly ever have the inside of my foot on the board. But it's all momentum and putting your weight back. Griptape should be in ok condition too.

The back of your heel should be digging into the side of the board to push it out, so your foot shouldn't slip off forward. If anything it will fall backwards, which has happened to me before. My poor, poor shoelaces....

Ha oh ****... Happens to us all though.

I usually eat **** when I'm doing the most stupid stuff like skating to class. I'll just lose train of thought and catch the back wheel with my shoe or something and faceplant. Just gotta get right back on it and show off that sick *** road rash.

My parents straight up think i'm crazy, I've barely used my car since I've gotten my longboard, pretty much if the distance I have to go is under a couple miles i've just been pushing there. The couple times I used it was to drive to the beach, and the reason i went to the beach was so I could longboard there... haha total lifestyle change with this thing.

feels good doesn't it? nothing like the sting of road rash to keep you up at night.

i hope you gave him a good slap but he did you a favor. now that you know what that feels like you should stick to your board better

I always thought that because I push with my left leg that it was going to get super buff on me. It turns out that my right leg is actually the one getting stronger since its the one that supports all my weight while I ride. Go figure.
