Ding, ding, ding.

We have a new Armillido, he (dillo) broke two shoulders using home made aluminum Kingpins, before learning the hard way, not besmirching him, just supplying the facts.

Please, "skateloggers", don't loctite your king pins, loctite ing an axle that's bolted down(in) is one thing, a kingpin is quite another.

I bet, got any more really, really bad advice?
