    is it necessary/recommended?

    any recommendations for a shop in Sac/Truckee/South Lake willing to stone grind a DIY split base?

    I have every board stone ground after splitting it. Honestly I can’t imagine not doing so. I work with a local shop (Powder Tools) in Steamboat. It’s best to remove all the hardware before grinding.

    a new shop opened right on donner lake – they tune/rent bikes in the summer and tune skis/boards in the winter. the owner is a long-time local that has worked at a bunch of shops, including the BC. they always seem to have a bunch of splits laying around and on consignment and i suspect that they would be psyched to help. i have had both board and bike work there and have been really happy.

    regarding removing hardware: I’ve already attached the nose/tail clip and I’ve epoxied the holes for the hooks (probably overkill?) – even if I remove the nut and hook from the top, the screws would still be poking through…
