I blew up this bottom rubber or urethane bumper piece of my other set while racing. I won the race (an enduro, I blew it up on a bad landing in the first couple miles of the race) but now I unfortunately can't ride my Moots.

Anyone have a replacement, or an alternative solution... my best guess on measurement would be 1" outside diameter x 1/2" height x 1/5" inner hole diameter.

I appreciate your help!

Was going to try that if I got desperate :lol:

Turns out the winner was the skateboard bushing... just ground it down to about 1/3" height and it works like a charm, even seems to be the right durometer.

Thanks for the help guys!

Good thing about skateboard bushings (and those on quad roller skates for that matter) is that they're cheap and available in various durometers so if the one you have isn't right there'll likely be one harder or softer that will do the trick.
