Fixed Axle Friday Throws

I just threw a split bottom mount and hoped right up out. like a elihop, let go of all the string and wind up at the same time. Let me know if that made sense.

Anyone tried putting a bearing blank in a Sherpa?

I have a Luftverk bearing blank in my Sherpa. It works okay.

The thing is, fixed axles typically have a very small radius, like a looper bearing. C sized bearings (or blanks) just don’t yield that authentic fixie feel, IMO.

Agreed. Blanks are “Ok”. The luftverk works better in this than the others I tried though( butterfly al, metal drifter xl)

Really enjoying @YoYoExpertGarrett’s though!! The wood blanks are definitely superior in play.

Gonna be Makin’ da Zines today! I’ve had a hard time wrapping my head around this repeater and I finally saw a detail I overlooked.:wink:

I know it’s not complicated, sometimes it’s just me overcomplicating it.
