Enjoy your street skating. I would not dare practice during an open session at a rink. There are too many distractions. There is an Olympic rink size room with wooden floor in a near by university that I use on the weekends. For outdoor skating, the only nice smooth and level surface available is a basketball court and a tennis court. I use them early in the morning or late at night when it is not occupied.

Glad to read your wheel issue was resolved. I use thin spacers to prevent the truck from pressing against the bearings. I also use them to prevent the nut or the nut socket from pressing against the bearing shield. Something, the spacer may come with the lock nut. The spacers I use are also designed to work with a bearing that does not have a shield.
