Default Balancing Proline Switch on Epic Bead-locs.

I just installed some switchs on some epic bead-locs and they seem way out of balance. My question is do I need to worry about it much for just bashing and running around the BMX track or should I look into balancing them? If it is vital that I balance them what are the steps to doing that? Thanks, Travis

Well if you mount each wheel on a front axle so it can freely spin, eventually it should settle with the heaviest point on the bottom. Then you should be able to place stick-on lead weights to the top of the wheel to balance it.

You probably won't need a whole weight either, even if they're way out of whack a half of a weight should be able to make a huge difference.
