I can’t see how they’re making a profit on those.

Thanks! I heard really good things about them. I’m not super stoked on the new Indys I set up yesterday, the bit of the hanger that sits in the pivot cup is slightly smaller than the plastic stock pivot cup and my trucks therefore move a bit and aren’t super solid. Barely noticeable when I’m skating I suppose but I’m 40 and can afford good pivot cups made of urethane to make trucks I’ll skate for 3 years better.

That’s a nice looking board

Looks nice!

I nearly went for one of these because I fancy moving up, slightly, from an 8.25 to .5 and also it was in the sale.

Decided it was time to (finally) try a Death board instead.

Been riding wheel wheels too…they’re good. Definitely get less wheel bite.

I’m also riding 97a Spitfires which are a bit of a revelation. Ride great on a variety of surfaces but particularly good on tarmac. Slide ok too. Worth a try.

I also have 97a Spitfires. Really good in indoor skateparks / they don’t pick up dirt and crap in damp weather. They slide when you want them to but they don’t slide out unexpectedly. I rate them

Yeah that’s true too now you mention it! I usually end up with muck caked on the rolling surface at indoor parks and it doesn’t happen with these.

Brazilian freestyle trucks. No kingpin. Made out of urethane.

I don’t need a new board but I’m tempted by this: Penny Sorry 20th 7.75" x 31.75" – flipskateboards

Just got this guy through for my second/big setup… Hope my old 6.1s won’t be too flying carpety, could be a good excuse to try some aces though

Nice. How wide?

about 9.75 at its widest, tapers to about 9 over the trucks. Been skating an AH beach bummer prior to this, and the shape feels v similar, just a little bit narrower and longer

That’s a big old board. Aces are nice trucks, especially the new AF1s. You’d probably want Ace 66, which have a 9" axle. They do take a bit of getting used to - I found mine really turny at first but now I love them.

The 66s are not the same for the AF1s and the classics. Double check.

Yes indeed. Old 66s are wider, I think

cheers, gonna see how i get on with my 6.1s and some extra washers, never need too much of an excuse to buy new shit though, and wanted to try aces out for a minute

I’ve only just set up a new deck, but my finger slipped while I was nosing around the Skate Cafe site a few minutes ago…

Always need at least one spare!

Fond of the Forest Gump movie, like that. The Warriors decks were cool too.
