Episode 23: Respect the Bear

We begin this episode with a discussion of the new Bear “Polar Bear” truck, in the smallest size (105mm), which is well-suited to freestyle board width, and which Tony has procured for his own enjoyment. I then edit out massive amounts of technical talk about trucks and bearings, and we move on to the actual act of riding skateboards and doing freestyle!

Here is the animated GIF that Simon refers us to at about 27 minutes.  http://cdn.skateboarding.transworld.net/wp-content/blogs.dir/440/files/2013/09/Busenitz_9Frames_v2.gif

Tony is working on a very detailed review, with precise measurement, of the Bear trucks. Look for that soon on the website.
