    Post bones bushings compared to indy bushings?

    soo ive heard indy bushings are super soft and suck. i think there meant for people who ride super loose. well i ride in the middle (i can turn perfectly but i dont get much wheelbite) well the main point of this thread is that ive heard some people say that the bones mediums are softer than indy bushings. is this true cuz if it is im gonna have to get the hards. so i like it in the middle and i weigh around 100 pounds (a lil less) if anyones had either one tell me how they ride. oh yea and do bones bushings fit in indy lows cuz some people say they do while other say they dont. anyone got experience? :) thanks

    Bones mediums aren't softer than Indy bushings. I weigh 150 and Bones mediums are perfect for my medium turning. They fit indy lows too, you don't have to use washers, but I still did...

    they fit the indy lows? thats awesome ok that made me alot more comfortable lol cuz i didnt wanna waste like $10+ on bushings that wont fit. so i weigh 95 or 96 (fuck it 100) pounds and like medium trucks. do u think i should get the hard or medium. thanks

    Indys are known for being loose so maybe get hard bushings.

    loose + hard = medium

    I dunno maybe someone can back me up on this statement.

    Indy's are the best turning trucks, why would you fuck with the bushings?

    actually yeah that did help alot. i get what your saying. my friend and i like almost exactly the same trucks looseness and he has blue doh-dohs (the softest) on his indys. he says they are still pretty tight and wants it looser, to me they same perfect so i think the hard would be too hard. i think im going for mediums. thanks

    They're just hating. Indys stock bushings are amazing. As for the lows, I'm not so sure. Different duro and feel .

    Come on now. What's wrong with em'? But if it's the fact that you have a set of Bones Mediums, then I can understand that. Or Khiro for that matter .

    just cut your bushings in half so you have half the thickness and ride shit super loose like GHND.

    Look if you buy a set of wider Indy's you don't really have to tighten it, part of their bushings is break them in than tighten em up after there broken in. Been skating Indy's for 30+ years. Never failed me I'm not new to Bone's bushing's just never tried them but I do know I just copped a pair of the hardcore white and black kind from a local hometown hero he said there tough to break in.
