First off, wanted to say I've been lurking this subreddit for awhile and what an awesome community this is.
Secondly, I just bought some Bones STF V2 53mm wheels because they seem to be pretty recommended around the internet and were reasonably priced at my local shop. The issue is while riding them, I noticed my speed seems to be slower than my previous wheels that were also 53mm. I noticed I have to push twice as much to get the same speed results. This may sound like a dumb question, but is this something that I will need to get used too? Or are they relatively slower in general? Don't get me wrong though, I love the wheels. They're loud and HARD. I'm new to skateboarding so any advice would be appreciated.
Some background: I ride a lot of pavement and sidewalks. Jumping up and down curbs, and hitting really small stair cases. Just some really basic beginners skating.
