PostSubject: I'm new, can anyone help me out?   Wed May 27, 2015 11:45 am

Hey guys,

It's my birthday today so I thought it'd be suitable to buy myself a fingerboard setup as it has always interested me.

The setup I bought:
Plain Berlinwood Deck
Bawsewood Trucks
Winkler Wheels
Random Griptape

I've skated pretty much all my life so getting started should not be a problem. The only problem I do have though which I would be much appreciated if someone would help me, how do I set it up?! Like is there a tool I need? or what? Any answers would be much appreciated, thanks.

Can you take a photo of your stuff? You'll maybe need to buy a techdeck so you can use the tool from that.

You bought Bawsewood bushings.

You'll be wanting some trucks.

Those are Blackriver trucks but you bought the bushings on the trucks. I would recommoend black river trucks or ytrucks. Blackriver trucks are better but they break.

I know I'm going to get shit for this, but just buy a pair of china trucks.
I believe Lovedrug sells them? Or buy them off Flatface. Also, you could just buy a 32mm tech deck, or one of their cruiser tech decks and use the trucks from that. Cheapest option, and it comes with the tool you need.
