Title: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: RightCoastBiased on September 14, 2009, 06:00:28 PM
I figure a good amount of people on here have a cruiser set up that they bum around on. I would assume most people are going to have have zip zingers/zaggers etc, regardless I wanna see them. I am planning on buying one soon seeing as I'll be moving somewhere I can use it, so any suggestions/advantages/disadvantages would be appreciated.

i have one of those zero rattray zip zinger type boards. the wheelbase is the same as a regular board, so it doesnt feel weird. it also has a skeleton swamp monster thing smoking a cigarette, which is the most important feature of a skateboard.

All you need is the wheels, everything else can be recycled from past setups.  Cruising on big soft wheels is worth it, 10 times easier getting places as apposed to a regular board.

Although i do understand your $$ dilemma, but there is a massive difference in your mindstate when out on the cruise.
Bigger softer wheels and a board thats obviously not really meant for kickflipping a 7 stair or backtailing your bench(although if so inclined it could be feasible) but the cruiser is for those days when your legs feel dead and the motivation to flip your board is less than 0.Yet you've finished season 5 of the office and theres no pot stickers to gorge yourself on, so you do the only thing you know, roll. Enjoying the simplest part of skateboarding,in it's purest form and free from the scrutiny your local park holds and void of that gnawing feeling of needing to film everything you do.
Get one,they tend to last forever and can be more fun than you'd ever imagine. Often times i find myself grabbing that to go roll around than my normal board.

personally anything over a 52 to me is a little too big but i ride lows so thats just me. Different strokes for different folks i suppose. I've got 55 stf's on that creature and i love em for the job they do, fast and loud. They get some good use up at baldy pipe every other week when the weather is hot.

after many years of setting up XL boards with big old trucks and 60mm wheels here and there and enjoying it but not really loving it, i went the other way- zip zinger nano, the smallest indys, and some 54 softies from powell- and i'm so stoked. gave it a sticker job with lots of my favorites from yesterday and today to give the visual stoke a boost too. it goes so fast, turns really quick, i can ollie without it feeling like i'm trying to jump a wet log. lately i've been feeling like i could just have this board the rest of my life and get everything i want out of skateboarding from it. well not everything, but it's so much fun...
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Fongstarr. on September 15, 2009, 09:57:19 AM
^^^^I need to do that. I like the Zinger shape and everything but when I have the wheels on it, it makes it super heavy to me. I want to try a set up with regular wheels and smaller trucks and see how that feels. It might not be really ideal for city cracks in the streets but I want something that I can actually flip with no problem. Maybe DLX will have a new nano graphic I can get.

shit is pointless why would you ever not want to ollie just makes your trrip longer cause you have to pick up your board at every curb

Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: whiteley on September 15, 2009, 10:47:06 AM
i've actually done the highest 360 flips of my life on my little nano- because it's smaller and lighter and has a shorter wheelbase, it pops up really fast. feels great. i would never ride anything i couldn't ollie up a curb on most definitely. on a cruiser i just want to be able to jam around, ollie up curbs, bonk off sidewalk cracks, snap off curb cuts, wallie parking blocks, huck the periodic 360 flip, and i can do all that- which is precisely why i didn't like the big cruisers. it's just a different feeling than a regular board, puts you in a different mood. skate whatever and however you like, that's the whole point.

seriously though. if you can't ollie a board, no matter what size, you're blowing it. you should be able to ollie up a curb on a damn 2x4. i can do that on a deck alone with no trucks. i mean come on. most cruisers are only 1-2 inches bigger than a normal board and maybe it's my age, but i was doing all kinds of flip tricks on my old ron allen mini (89 bitches!). that thing would definitely be a cruiser by today's standards. here it is:

Or this
(http://www.goodtimesonline.com/images/kr-cp-dkzinger-nano-bronze.jpg)

The "Suck it" one is hilarious but it's the size of a regular board (8.25 x 32.5). But the nano is only 7.25 x 29 and that just seems so tiny to me. But the nano maybe a better bet because I need to size up my indys, from the 129s i am currently riding to the 139s I would like to be riding, and I could put my old trucks on the nano. It sucks that I just used all my spare parts to build a board for my little brother and I now have to buy all brand new shit.

After looking at all the cruisers I just had to go out and buy one. Went down to some shop and picked up a zip zinger with indy 139s and some classic spitfire 56s 80d. I went to a park here on the cape and just pumped around on it and rode the mini. I had a blast skating the zip zinger, it is so damn fast and smooth. I was a bit tired so I drove back home and on the 20 minute drive got so psyched to ride again. Came home dropped some shit off and went out and skated around. I bombed a bunch of hills and ended up skating over 3 miles. God damn I can't wait for the rain to get the fuck out of here and I can ride again.

This is how I get to and from work (at least until it starts pouring down on the Pacific Northwest).  OG Zipzinger (used to be a purple Krooked Hosoi Guest board from when he was still in prison), Indys, old set of Rock'n Ron's Ceramic Bearings, and Satori Goo Balls.  This thing flies down the streets.

When I was stationed overseas in Yokosuka, Japan, I would scout out new destinations with my cruiser when my ship would hit port.  The first night of liberty, I would try to cover as much ground as possible on this to find spots for the next day when I'd bust out my street board.  Saved me a lot of valuable time, and those wheels have seen most of Southeast Asia including Shanghai, Thailand, Korea, Singapore, and quite a bit of Japan.

No doubt-the Nanos are real fun to mess around on! I skate small boards anyways so the biggest difference is the high trucks/big and soft wheels.

theres some ok shit in here. ok its not the gayest shit i have ever seen but i just feel like i have way more control on my normal board and i couldnt see myself switching to something more difficult just for the sake of it being more difficult. i dont even like skating switch that much im so used to my shit being a certain way. i might ride one of these boards in the rain. they need to make something for that made out of stainless or some shit.

The set up I just bought isn't that much more difficult to ride. Some things, like skating a tranny, are easier for me. I was skating a mini ramp today and my zip zinger is so fast and easy to skate.

But different strokes for different strokes.

What some y'all not understanding people don't get is that sometimes it's just a fun change of pace.  Skateboarding doesn't have to be just your normal 7.5"-8.5" symmetrical board with hard white wheels and precisely tuned trucks.  You ever do a blunt to fakie on a quarterpipe with a 4 foot longboard.  That is some funny shit.  Open your fucking minds for fucks sake.  Uptight motherfuckers in this shit.

to me a Cruiser is different than a Longboard. I wish companies would stop doing so many longboard wheels. I think any wheel under 90a is too soft. a 92 or 95a in a functional shape/size is perfect. I need to be able to slide. Spitfire had some called Softers and Bones had the Ditch Formula, but I can never find either of them.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Mr. DNA on December 23, 2009, 01:10:40 PM
The really soft wheels like the old Kryptonics are good for a board that you're going to skate home from the bar. where a pebble is going to toss you.

It's going to sound nerdy and sad but I saw Tommy Guerrero's Zip Zinger and he had an Anti Hero sticker on the nose and I thought it looked cool so I copied him.

Got the first one from Jim, the second from Mic E, and the third was a limited run for a fallen skater here... the graphic was used on an Actions Realized 8", but this is one of 40 Ace of Spades models we got at our shop, because that's what Mike himself would've ridden:
(http://www.grimcity.com/slap/3hangers.jpg)

(http://www.grimcity.com/slap/3rides.jpg)
A Ray Barbee (not a remake) with Gullwings and T Bones... I don't ride this board hard because the wood is sensitive... it still pops, but it's really dried out and splinters out weird. The longboard was a gift that I've had for ages... it's on 65mm Kryptos, and the Zagger's on Thunders and Softers. The Roskopp in the back is skateable, just not set up.

The board with all the stickers was like a 36" Powell. I rode it miles upon miles. It was my bar board for a long time. I won a board off a Thrasher website trivia question in like 2001. The board was too small for me so I took it to the skateshop and my friend let me trade it on for whatever I wanted So I got the big cruiser.  I retired it last year and got another of the same model. Yes, I could ollie on it. The Deathbox board I bought for my normal board, but I realized it was super flat and horrible to a regular riding board. I set it up as a cruiser and then user the parts for other boards. It is still in good condition in my attic.

Originally, I was going to call it the Kip Winger and paint a Winger logo on it. At the time I was reading a book on the history of Country music and I was really into the Leadbelly song "When I was a Cowboy" so I went with a Western motif. Later, I saw that almost made a Zip Zinger rip off called the Kip Winger.

wish i had the orange zinger wheels on mine, had to settle for the blue 58mm. after i take in my christmas haul i might spring for these...

depends on your preferences, from what i can tell the krooked cutters and the spitfire 80d's are the same shape but the cutters are wider. the zinger wheels are more square as opposed to rounded on the edges, but their all 80d and awesome. also depends on what color you would want if any...

I've had Independent stage nine trucks for a while now and I've been thinking about creating my very own cruiser. As my local shop doesn't really have any 'cruiser' boards as such, I'm looking at one's online. Basically I want to get a deluxe one but it seems all the cruiser boards krooked/anti hero make are bigger or smaller than 8 inches. Would an 8.5 be too big for my 8 inch trucks?

if you can find it, the krooked ben schroeder guest board is a 7.8

i have the real cruiser board, the blue dompierre one.it has indy 139s and the wheels are only 55's.
i dont know how to post images but i have some old footage skating it.
im the kid in the blue SLAP(omgg!!) baseball-t, and im riding the realcustomcruiser because it was all i had to skate that week.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFojEBNDpgs

keep in mind this little tage thing(along with all other posts on that channel) is meant to be a joke, so dont mind the song/editing/skating, its not serious.t

i also have some shitty little cruiserboard i found up the street from wsvt. it has cheetah griptape and the bottom says something about staying meth free with all these signatures everywhere. it also has royal trucks which are rusted into the tightest position possiblem and some blue gum wheels sized about 65. i tried to make it into a somewhat legitmate cruiser recently. I sharpied the griptape until the sharpie ran out(leaving about half the grip cheetah, the other half choppy black). unfortunately, the bolts were soo rusted and stripped that i couldnt take off the trucks no matter how hard i tried. needless to say i failed, now i just skate it when its raining outside.

My cruiser, a Powell Ray Barbee remake( I bought it because it was 1 of Cliver's first graphics on Powell & he autographed my copy of the first Disposable with my name, hand numbered of books in the printing and a sketch of the Ragdoll, what can I say I'm a huge Cliver fan, just as much as McKee) so I wanted to rock his art work, ten inches wide, pure awesomeness, 58mm i think OJ III's on it with 10 inch Indys with medium bones hardcore bushings and china reds. Only difference is now this beast has rails on it and skid marks all over the tail and the small section the was considered a nose. I love it though, Hill bombing is the shit on this hog of a deck

when i got it i chose it over the drehobl cruiser and i'm regretting it ever since.

someone snagged the drehobl right in front of my eyes as I walked into the shop to buy it, i was so bummed at the time. still way stoked on the zinger setup i picked out though...

Did you cut it first and then apply, or grip it and cut it? Either way seems like a lot of work.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Mr_Friendly on January 25, 2010, 03:55:22 AM
I cut it as I was putting it on. It takes a little bit longer than normal, but really it's not bad. Basically, you just start at the bottom of the sheet, cut (or rip) a shape, then put it on the board, moving from top to bottom or vice-versa. as you move up the sheet the cut lines match up pretty easy on the board.

Do zingers come gripped? I've only ever seen the tops of them with a fancy pattern-cut line around the name.

No, but it's not hard to do.

On my Zig Zagger I just used 1 sheet of grip, penciled the cut lines, used a long metal ruler to cut out the design (leaving some corners still stuck together) then applied the sheet as straight as I could like you would normally grip a board then just peeled out the design, then pushed down/smoothed out the grip.

I just got the board/wheels today, this is my first ever "cruiser" if you will, so im really excited about it.

7.9 Brue Killer
54mm OJ3 Bloddsuckers
Mixmatched Thunder 147hi's
Random assortment of new and old bearings.

Sickest one

I was thinking about what I would get if I wanted a cruiser, and this is the exact board I had in mind. Down to the wheels and trucks too. Or I really want the Silas Habitat Cork-Top board.

I looked at that Silas one (with the lynx) at the shop and it was just so tiny and looked like a toy that I couldn't handle it. I kinda liked the shape, but size seemed funny.

My problem is that I have a pair of 129 indys that I have on my current cruiser, and if I was to buy a new cruiser board I'd like it to fit the trucks, cause I find it hard to justify spending over 100 euros on it.

But what I'd really want is a big fat cruiser, like at least 8,5" like the Girl Carroll powerslide one. Maybe I'll just have to get the truck and wheels with different paychecks so it don't seem like as much.

Recommendations for big soft wheels? I plan on setting a Zip Zinger up this coming spring, might even buy some real Swiss bearings too. I wanna race, go fast and potentially kill myself on one of these rigs.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: babybonus on March 01, 2010, 12:47:11 AM
The bigger santa cruz soft wheels I have are good, but I think I would have gone with something different now that ive been shredding them. They are amazing for riding around the city, super fast and smooth. But sometimes you feel like trying a 3 flip or something and with the risers and large wheels and gets pretty heavy to whip that thing around. I suggest getting a happy medium....something maybe like upper 50's in size and soft, if you start going too big it just lowers your possibilities i find, or makes it harder atleast.

I have 57mm Spitfire 80's, they come in a variety of sizes and I have no complaints. 57 doesn't even sound that big, but compared to <52mm 100 duro wheels the difference in the ride quality was incredible. I've also heard a lot of people like the Zip Zinger wheels.

If you're looking for speed, I would recommend getting a set of the 60mm spitfire classics (99 duro). I have them on my cruiser setup right now, and they seem to be considerably faster than the softer durometer wheels.

I tried out a set of the zip zinger soft wheels and though they felt amazingly cushy and quiet,  I missed being able to powerslide without the fear of getting pitched.

Good bearings are essential too. Throw some bones swiss in there and you will definitely feel the difference.

But for filming or cruising around on shitty streets, I would definitely go with the Zip Zingers or Spitfire 80Ds.

I just got my first ever cruiser yesterday, the Janoski cork top. So now I'm just waiting for the spring to come around.

The thing is, I don't have any old trucks etc lying around, I always give it away, I don't want shit to pile up around the house. But now I need to get trucks and wheels for the cruiser. Wheels; I'll get something big and soft but what about trucks? I think the board is 7.75 at the widest point so my Thunder 147's will probably do but if I buy new shit, I might as well look into suggestions that people with cruiser experiece have.

So stick with what I know I like (thunder 147's) or is there something more suitable for this?

My personal recommendation is:

(http://www.warehouseskateboards.com/images/p/1WSFW080D20580B.jpg)

Spitfire Classic 80D 56 or 58mm

(http://socalskateshop.com/images/products/thumb_6044_ace33rawTN.jpg)

Ace High 22s (7.75 width)

(http://socalskateshop.com/images/products/thumb_1408_boneshardcorebushingssoft.jpg)

Soft Bones Bushings

This would result in a retardedly fun cruiser.

I haven't ridden one, but I recall it said something on the deck like "Please don't grip this board at least until the cork wears off" so my guess would be that it doesn't hold up as well as regular griptape.

I have a powell board with flames on it and it's really big, with some big indys and some big bones. It is awesome, especially when I come encounter with a skatepark that has a big roller with a big table for my big board.

My friend's dad was remodeling a barn that was sitting on some property he just bought. In it he found a long board that is a perfect 8 inches in width and almost 45 inches in length. My friend gripped it during the winter, I will try and get a picture of it as it's actually pretty obscure looking.

Rolled around the skatepark bowls or at least tried to this morning. Zip Zinger wheels all but canceled out the speed from the Swiss bearings I had because they were so soft. My rain board with 52mm Autobahn dual cores and misc bearings was killing it.

I wonder if I should go back to the Spitfire 57mm Classics I had, try some Bones SPFs or a different cruiser wheel.  Mostly just for transportation, bombing hills and carving around skateparks.

every time i consider buying a cruiser, i just remind myself that its not worth spending money on when i can cruise on my regular board.

True, but big soft wheels making cruising city streets a lot nicer.


i think i'm the only one riding just big hard wheels. I like powersliding too much to run the softies.

What do you consider big? I ride 55s.

personally anything over a 52 to me is a little too big but i ride lows so thats just me. Different strokes for different folks i suppose. I've got 55 stf's on that creature and i love em for the job they do, fast and loud. They get some good use up at baldy pipe every other week when the weather is hot.

These wheels are complete trash. My core split in two after only a month or so of very light cruising, now it makes this horrible sound when I ride them because the whole wheel is actually deforming. It sucks.

Yeah. I had those blue ZipZinger wheels, they were really, really bad and slow. Whoever thinks about buying ZipZinger wheels should also consider some Slow Juan bearings to go with it.

I changed the Zingers for some Ricta Clouds, such a big difference it's unreal. I didn't change the bearings so it definitely were the wheels. Fuck those expensive ass ZipZinger pieces of shit.

I went shopping for a cruiser last week and found some really sick Alva's, Dogtowns and Z-flex's. They were just a little expensive for me and my limited budget. €150-€260 is too much for a board to just roll around on.
I'll buy one in the near future though, when I can work.

Bummed to see all the bad reviews of these Zip Zinger 65mm's, but I'm going to give 'em a shot. Love the way they make this board look like a Tonka truck. Indy 149's on this thing too. Thanks to this thread, too, for waking me up to the idea of setting up a cruiser...lost most my tricks some time ago but have still been chasing that dragon and hurting myself along the way.

The wheels are 56 bones spf. The trucks are a knock offs of an Indy 101 (about 5.5"). The board is a little less than 6.5" at the widest part and the tail is only 3" long. I have no idea how you would do a tailslide or blunt on it.

Do you know what hardness (durometer) they are?  I have some cali-orange Satori cruiser wheels that are like 80a ...anyhow,they are so soft that some rough patches here and there can tear 'em up pretty easily when they are that soft.

Has anyone skated the krooked kutter wheels? I set them up only a few months ago and one of them is already torn to shit, chunks missing and everything, but it's only one of them. The rest of them are fine. I don't know if it's normal or if it's a bad wheel and I should send dlx an email or something.

Do you know what hardness (durometer) they are?  I have some cali-orange Satori cruiser wheels that are like 80a ...anyhow,they are so soft that some rough patches here and there can tear 'em up pretty easily when they are that soft.
Yeah, I can imagine that could happen but it's just a little weird because just this one is getting torn up.

The bones bushings in new trucks made it instant fun, I rode it to work and dicked around with it afterwards a little. The steep kicks and big wheels make it kind of an effort to pop an ollie with it at first but I'm getting used to it and it's fast as fuck.

I have a hard time transitioning from a regular set up to my cruiser. My cruiser is so much faster and I sometimes forget and will get pitched while riding transition. Then getting back on my regular set up after riding my cruiser I feel like my board is super slow.

I used one of my other decks for the outline. I usually ride a pointy-ish nosed deck so I just lined them up so I would cut a couple inches off the sides.

I have a Mike Carrol guest Zip Zinger with some old plastic base Gullwings and some Big, Soft, Bones on it. It was ideal for the beer store, but I no longer drink and I live on a dirt road. Bummer.

For cruiser wheels, y'all should look into getting a set made with love and care (and way less likely to look like that chunked up krooked wheel).

Something like this:

Steve Olson deck
Indys
Some old Santa Cruz OJs
Bones Swiss
Bones med bushings

Feels pretty good so far.
The sharpness of the nose still freaks me out a little.
I feel like if I try skating this like a regular setup, I might end up harpooning my testicles or something...

It was my 32nd birthday a couple of weeks back so instead of retiring like Heath, I set up my first cruiser. May change some stuff over time but have found so much new stuff over town old and new spots, scaring a lot of people who just don't get to see skating in their neighbourhoods.

Those Girl cruiser decks look sick! Wanted to pick up the Koston one but would probably have to pick up some Indy 169s or something since I doubt my Thunder 147s would work with a 9-10" wide deck.  Not down with the 'magic carpet' feeling.

this thread is worse then anything the industry tried to do with me. but I'll wait until I get 30, then it's legit to have a cruiser .. only 1,5 years though, haha.

anyway, you all have really beautiful boards. can't even remember when I had a new pair of trucks or wheels for my regular board the last time ... must have been in 2008 or something.

Spit Softer 92 57s
Bones Super Sixes
Black bolts - need to find some silver ones.

I black friday'd this shit, so the price was fine.

i like that black zagger deck, but colored wheels aren't for me. I wasn't ready to take the plunge into crazy soft wheels, so hopefully these 92s plus the stupid shock pads will smooth out the crap pavement here, while still allowing a few tricks and some mellow park action.  I'll let you know how that combo works and post a real pic when's she worn in a little.

Thats Sweet!!! May i ask how you made that?

I had an an old shop board that I had set up as a vert board a good few years ago, it was 8.75 or thereabouts. So I simply too k some rough measurements from a zip zinger, sketched it on the board with a pencil a couple of times to make sure it was symetrical. After that I just cut it down with a hacksaw, filed and sanded the edges and re gripped it.

Its so easy I dont know why anyone would pay for a cruiser. gonna do another with a different shape...

It's 8.5 inches wide at the largest point around the middle and I think it's around 32 inches long.

Closest parking garage is a half hour a way.
Those same parking garages are in the same city with a indoor park that i get in for free.
So its just a issue of me being a pussy about the cold.
Planning on hitting up the garages asap though.

depends on the city you live in, i would say. in my city, many streets are really fucked up, so i went for the largest zip zinger wheels (62?), and i never regretted it. even though next time i think i wouldnt go larger than 58mm, shit gets heavy.

Spitfires 92a or maybe something softer.  Got the Zip Zingers to match the deck and they suuuuucked.  Even in the skatepark w/ Swiss bearings I wasn't going fast at all.  Maybe I got a bad set?

Got some Satori cruisers and going way faster now.

Just picked this cruiser up today. My parents got it for me for my birthday. Super stoked because I'm a huge Natas and Pendleton fan, so the both of them together is awesome. I flipped it since everyone has been annoyed about that lately. It's weird having to tighten the trucks so much. They feel super loose. I think it's because the board is so wide.

I've been wanting to do this for a while, but never had the nerve to do it to a regular set up. It doesn't seem to bother me at all on the crusier, so I may try something different with my next regular set up. Next time I'll try and remember to take the warning stickers off first. ? ;D

Btw... anybody have any suggestions for wheels. I want something softer, but I still want to keep the wheels around 54mm or so. I was thinking about those satori p-town players.

bones yellows, or blues. if you don't want to buy new bushings though you could try cutting the ones you have smaller with an exacto knife, then they'll get crazy loose.

I wouldn't reccomend that, I had to ride a Zig Zagger for a while when I couldn't afford a normal deck and it was really frustrating to skate. Hard to flip and hard to spin (although the spinning was probably because of the huge trucks I had on it). Just get a big Creature or something.

i think cruisers are way more fun when they're smaller (as in a zinger instead of a zagger). otherwise, you're dipping your toes into longboard waters, and fuck that hippy noise.

heyheyhey, settle down now. yeah zaggers are 8.5 wide, not sure on the length but i seem to remember them being maybe somewhere in the 34 range or something. I didn't say nothing about not being able to do tricks on them or anything like that, I was just responding to Wh013's post about his frustrations in the past with his zagger, by stating my personal oppinion about how fun little cruisers can be. the hippy/longboard comment was more directed to the seemingly booming market of cruisers boards that are seemingly becoming more and more long and wide, thus heavy and lame. Zaggers are still well within what I find to be a fun cruiser, though I'd rather take a Zinger instead.

nah, not at all. if you slide it it scratches through the fiberglass ply to the next wooden ply pretty fast. it may start peeling off on the edges where you pop some day, hard to tell by now. the cliche banana cruiser has the exact same shape, only without the fiberglass but with the bamboo ply as well.

Zaggers are still well within what I find to be a fun cruiser, though I'd rather take a Zinger instead.


The Zig Zagger is like 32.8" long, the same as a normal deck. I would just get an 8.5 krooked instead, it's the same wood, just cut in a more usable shape. I was hyped on the whole cruiser thing because they look cool until I actually had to skate mine as my normal set up. Also the holes for the trucks are close together, more so than a normal deck which, in conjunction with the obnoxiously large tail, resulted in landing on the tail on almost every time. (also note i'm 6'5" with long ass legs so it's more of a problem because I'm heavy and need more space between my legs to stay balanced.)

The novelty of a Zig Zagger and similar wide cruiser decks wears off after not too long. It's makes much more sense to just buy a large setup, even if you don't plan to skate it as it will cruise just the same.

just my $.02...I'm probably not gonna buy a cruiser shaped deck again.

heyheyhey, settle down now. yeah zaggers are 8.5 wide, not sure on the length but i seem to remember them being maybe somewhere in the 34 range or something. I didn't say nothing about not being able to do tricks on them or anything like that, I was just responding to Wh013's post about his frustrations in the past with his zagger, by stating my personal oppinion about how fun little cruisers can be. the hippy/longboard comment was more directed to the seemingly booming market of cruisers boards that are seemingly becoming more and more long and wide, thus heavy and lame. Zaggers are still well within what I find to be a fun cruiser, though I'd rather take a Zinger instead.


The Zig Zagger is like 32.8" long, the same as a normal deck. I would just get an 8.5 krooked instead, it's the same wood, just cut in a more usable shape. I was hyped on the whole cruiser thing because they look cool until I actually had to skate mine as my normal set up. Also the holes for the trucks are close together, more so than a normal deck which, in conjunction with the obnoxiously large tail, resulted in landing on the tail on almost every time. (also note i'm 6'5" with long ass legs so it's more of a problem because I'm heavy and need more space between my legs to stay balanced.)

The novelty of a Zig Zagger and similar wide cruiser decks wears off after not too long. It's makes much more sense to just buy a large setup, even if you don't plan to skate it as it will cruise just the same.

just my $.02...I'm probably not gonna buy a cruiser shaped deck again.
I know your pain, I'm 6'3" and it's kind of a bitch finding a deck that feels "natural" I've never had a cruiser board but from what you just said I feel like I would land on the tail constantly, and inevitably snap the tail off prematurely.

not so long ago a set up like that would have just been called a "skateboard".

for my money to qualify as a cruiser you need to be running under 90a wheels.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Officer Caruthers on June 25, 2011, 02:20:32 PM
Yeah, the Bullets are actually 92A / 63mm, so they feel a little more cruiser-ish.
I can't believe we used to run setups like this back in the day.
I'm definitely glad skateboards have progressed as much as they have over the past 20yrs...

Post by: Mullet Man on June 25, 2011, 02:35:10 PM
Thing is, skateboard shapes changed and changed... until 1993. They have been the same ever since, which is weird.

Conventional wisdom says that they've found the optimal shape, yet I am open to new ones and sometimes I wonder why no one (RODNEY) has stepped up and tried to introduce a little innovation back into board shapes. They are more into experimenting with gimmick materials these days, and skaters are not feeling it.

I have gathered, from trying fancy grip jobs and watching other peoples fancy grip jobs and then comparing them to Randozzi's fancy grip jobs, that it is paramount to make the lines thin enough. Lines meaning the spaces between griptape pieces. Think fine tip vs felt tip.

sooooooooo sick. i had that deck growing up. i love it when people skate "vintage," "valuable," "collectable" skateboards... you should take pics of it getting destroyed every couple sessions, then post them on skull and bones to make the ebayers cry.

Yeah, I found them on ebay for only 23 bucks...
The guy selling them had them attached to these ridiculous gigantic off-road wheels.
I'm guessing that's why they sold so low...

They were pretty grimy when they came in the mail, but they cleaned up nice...
Indy's with the 6-hole or OG 4-hole pattern are hard to come across cheap nowadays.

yeah its carpet but its not hard to stay on.  for the most part it skates like any other board.  just like if you tried to slide on your carpet with sneakers on, its pretty grippy.  it certainly doesn't hurt that i've got brand new vans on.  its pretty fun and its super comforatable to ride on.  the doormat is quite thick and plush.

i used a $2 tube of liquid nails, you can find it at any hardware store.
 
i put a good amount of it on to cover the entire top of the board(nice and messy, all the way past the edges), then stacked a bunch of boards on top to put some weight on it so i'd know it stuck really well.  after a day passed, i took the boards off and let it air dry another day.  then i just cut around it the same way i'd grip a regular board and burned the edges using a lighter so the fabric wouldn't fray as easily.  it will still fray a little here and there after you miss a flip trick or whatever but nothing your lighter can't fix.             
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: swllbo on July 02, 2011, 08:31:41 PM

you can do it either way. Sometimes I'll use my existing cruisers to trace a shape on to a board with pencil, and then go back over it with small adjustments to make it turn out different. sometimes I'll eyeball it right from the start. and other times I'll make it shaped exactly like other boards I've made. One things for sure, the old adage measure twice cut once, definitely applies.


And I can't remember ever hearing of a astro-turftopped skateboard, but it sounds awesome.

there was this dude that used to live a few houses down from a miniramp i used to skate a lot in carlsbad that had a "barefoot setup." he had that foamy, spongy stuff they put on skimboards and wakeboards for grip on a zig zagger type shape with some big soft wheels.... he'd just use it to cruise to the store or go check the surf or whatever a dude with a "barefoot setup" does....  sometimes he'd roll over, join in on sessions on the minramp as well, and actually had a decent bag of tricks.

i paid $7 in total($5 for the doormat and $2 for the liquid nails) which isn't bad considering its a cruiser and i know i'll have it for a while.  i wouldn't waste my money on it if it was for a street setup.   
you can always go to a carpet place and ask them for a piece as big as the board.  most of the time they'll give it to you for free.  its not like they can actually sell a 32" x 9" piece of carpet. 
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: aojiru on July 09, 2011, 12:51:27 PM
Yeah, bought a sheet of grip but was still thinking about doing the carpet board so I got a 27 inch long piece cut about a foot wide.  Probably gonna cut that piece up and get creative.  Maybe just stick it in the middle and put left over griptape from another board I plan to grip on the edges?

Set this up a few months a go. Hyped on it. I got Satori Goo Balls 59mm, really soft with some 139 Indy's a long with some shitty $10 mini logo bearings. I also use the Krooked Risers on it.

Just needs some nice soft wheels,bearings,and a new grip job, and it will be good to go.
Might even try the carpet grip with this one.

This thing is great.  It's a tad over 8" at it's widest and has a 14.25 wheelbase.  This one is old, so it's the original MM wood made in PDX, Oregon.

I'm doing my head in about wheels.  Got some Indy 149s for my Zig Zagger, and i'm stoked asides from making the board way heavier.  But i'm riding 54mm Spitfire Classics, and whilst they're good they're kind of annoying on the rough roads, but I want to keep the feel of a regular skateboard, or at least a semblance of one.  I'm thinking of OJs or Bones ATF, but i'm not sure.  I used to LOVE OJs as a kid, and remember them sliding really well, but who knows what I was thinking back then.

Satori makes some 54mm soft wheels but after my bad experience with 58mm Zip Zinger wheels, I'm extra skeptical about soft wheels under 60mm.

That one video with Brent Atchley makes me want to get them though.

I love my spitfire 80Ds, but if you are looking for a wheel that is going to slide I would recommend something harder. Despite being named 80Ds they are actually 80a in durometer.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: radcunt on August 05, 2011, 10:52:33 AM
I guess I just want fast & smooth, really, and not too big so it fucks with the normal board feel too much.  The 80Ds aren't too bad, really, but I think I just need to deal with Cruisering my Zagger a bit harder.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Basingstoke on August 06, 2011, 03:02:32 AM
I recently put some of the Flip Hot Doggers on my cruiser set up and really like the smoothness, only problem is the wheel shape isn't symetrical on both sides so the wheels sometimes pull to one side and eventually will cone out.

The Classics are have a symetrical profile, right?

if you get a solid wheel that doesn't have the insert like in the zinger wheels they wont fall apart. hubba makes/made the marshmellow wheels. they're not exactly the softest, but they aren't the hardest. perfect blend if you still want a softer wheel that you can skate like a regular wheel. i had some h-street 95a's once that i skated as regular wheels. they were just a little softer and still slid. i wish i held onto them in retrospect. in all honesty though it is a skateboard wheel. it isn't indestructible. skateboard products also come with defects from time to time. the act of skateboarding also wears down your board too. take it for what it is

My Zip Zinger wheels didn't fall apart.  That was some other guy who seemed to powerslide the hell out of them doing backside 180s or something.  My problem was that they were extra slow like I was riding in grass even with Swiss 6 while skating in a smooth cement park.  Gonna give 'em away to a friend who wants to skate more but needs something to slow down the Reds he has in his set up that "are too fast still".

Got some 54mm Satori P Town Players and a Creature Brue Killer on order so pic will be up when I get it set up.

you'll have better luck with using a woodburner with a flat tip to get the edges to hold up. when the carpet melts on the edges, it forms this plastic like seal that should keep it from getting all fucked up.
Also, just have to note that while yeah, the patterned carpet looks cool, I'm not sure it'll have as much grip or hold up to weather/wear and tear as an outdoor, stiffer weave carpet, with rubber matting on the bottom.
You can make designs with that stuff too, it just takes a little more time and skill with a blade.
I've got a couple in the works right now. One for Orchard thats gonna have a bird on it, and one for Identity in Portmouth NH that's gonna have an anchor.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: aojiru on August 08, 2011, 03:23:32 PM
A woodburner would be nice, but I'm nowhere as serious as you are, plus I wanted to keep it cheap, hence me looking for the flat file instead of buying a new one.  Figured I'd just bevel the edges that are overhanging and then burn it with a lighter to finish it off.

Having done grip jobs on most my decks for the past few years, I'd be interested in seeing how those carpet patterns come out, hopefully with some insight on how to do them also.

You like that shape? I'm debating whether to get one of these, or one of those new Tommy G Real 20 year cruiser decks. Want something a little bigger than a Zinger, but not as big as a Zagger. Just want to be able to comfortably powerslide on it, but yet have it maintain that minimal tricks, cruising only type feel.

I got some Indy 129s and Thunder 145 Highs in a box but I got my Zip Zinger set up with Thunder 147 Highs and kinda wide 62mm Satori cruiser wheels at the moment. 

They definitely stick out a little but I'm used to pushing so that I don't hit the board/wheels with my foot.

are you just riding the cork, or did you put grip on top of it?
im just riding the cork, its not grippy at all, but you can still pop a few kickflips on it


You like that shape? I'm debating whether to get one of these, or one of those new Tommy G Real 20 year cruiser decks. Want something a little bigger than a Zinger, but not as big as a Zagger. Just want to be able to comfortably powerslide on it, but yet have it maintain that minimal tricks, cruising only type feel.



Probably get the tommy g one, it may not seem it but the cork boards are so short

Had this since April. I use to have 129 indys on it but I didn't like how it rode so I gave in and bought some Tracker Midtracks about 2 weeks ago and now I love it. Turns extremely sharp and it's nearly impossible to get wheel bite even though I ride pretty damn loose.

I just measured them and they're probably like barely under 2 inches, so they're perfectly flesh with the board's width with the Trackers.

My second cruiser. It's a Black Label - 10.75".
Had the deck since 2007 just never rode it much that's why it looks so new still. I found out the other day my 169 Indys can fit it so I decided to re-grip it, with two sheets.

i have this, but I hardly consider it a cruiser. fun to keep on hand in case you get stuck at a spot and wanna dork around on a weird board

(http://store.verticalurge.com/ProductImages/girl_choc_fall07/girl_crail_comp.jpg)

Does that thing feel like it's ever going to break? Iv'e always wanted one but Im scared I would just snap that crailtap wood.

I don't know if it boosts the structural integrity, but the pinkish/purplish board I've got has a fiberglass layer. Thus far it has not broken, but it's incredibly flexible as it's got no concave at all.

Recently, my signatured Jeff Grosso cruiser I won on here met it's untimely demise under the tire of a mustang. I've since graduated the Crailtap board to full cruiser status, using the riser pads and big black softies from the old cruiser. It's fucking fun! Feels like I've time traveled back into the 60's every time I booze cruise to the bar. I've got some rails I may install that were intended for the now deceased Blacklabel, but I'm hesitant to predrill the huge holes needed to properly install them. Maybe if I jump on this carpet bandwagon the rail nuts/bolts will be effectively obscured

Also, been sitting on this guy for a while. Bought the board a few months back off a meth-head for $20, still in the plastic. Just got the trucks/wheels, etc. day before yesterday.

I had that pingpong gripped board, and it was the heaviest board I've ever tried skating.
seriously man, it felt like longboard territory.
but the grip totally does work (and yeah, also gets dirty fast)

if you're going for an alternatively gripped board, just get one of the corktopped cruisers habitat puts out, or buy one of my carpet cruisers (if I do wind up going through with making an online store 2012.

looks like fun times.

BUT--anybody thinking of trying this- TAKE THE GRIPTAPE OFF BEFORE YOU CUT THE BOARD IF YOU DON'T ENJOY RUINING A BLADE EVERY TIME YOU MAKE A CUT...

and to aid in getting the griptape off, heat it up with a heat gun or hairdryer to soften/loosen the adhesive.

and for the love of god, get some kinda clamps/vise/something besides your friend to hold it steady for you. those kids are begging for a power tool mishap.

So I cut a new board out of an old one like I was planning.  I only cut the nose and tail so I could keep the concave (it also saved me some cutting). Then I did a bunch of sanding and painting.

Also, I cut through the grip without a problem, which saved me money on new grip.

Just saw this on eBay...

I had that thing on my watch list and I missed the fucking auction. Did you win it? I remember it sold super cheap, like $28...

Nah I wish - that's pretty cheap.

You guys see the new Creature Rip Rider 2 - 1/2 cruiser, 1/2 defensive weapon

I'm thinking about getting this deck and I was wondering, if put 7.5 venture lows with 60 mm ojs will it ride weird or will I just need to get risers?

thanks, how big are your risers and what trucks do you use? so I know to get bigger if you have low trucks or maybe around the same if you have highs since the wheels will be a little bigger.

Wheelbase is the distance between your front and back wheels. It's the BASE that your WHEELS provide you to stand on, turn, suck a dick, whatever.

Ha - you know it..!

but seriously - if you saw the 5 Boro premiere and it's a new shop around NY, I'd guess Belief Skateshop, but I could be dead wrong...

Either way - I bought this toy machine cruiser and totally regretted it because it's too big and it's not really Ollie-friendly. Good for cruising though...

Not my pics - but I have the same soft wheels like this, cept their red and not purple like this guy's:

I guess it would be more of a cruiser, but I'm thinking that, once I switch out my Designarium cruiser, I'm going to get a skinny, odd shaped board but keep my super wide trucks on it for my next cruiser.  Like Thunder 149s on like a 7.75/7.8.  Seems fun.

Decided to get the reissue of the first pro deck that I ever had (even down to the woodstain) and put my old trucks on it (Thunder Titanium II Hi 147). It makes nice change from the Krooked board that I had set up before, longer wheel base and wider, although the reissue is smaller than the original.

Now, i'm debating if i should buy some grip and new trucks for the deathwish deck to have a wider more solid cruiser, or if i should just buy a new 7.5/7.75 ish cruiser and keep rocking with the smaller cruiser. decisions decisions...

Decided to get the reissue of the first pro deck that I ever had (even down to the woodstain) and put my old trucks on it (Thunder Titanium II Hi 147). It makes nice change from the Krooked board that I had set up before, longer wheel base and wider, although the reissue is smaller than the original.
That looks like an incredibly fun, normal set-up. Or second set-up

(http://i1018.photobucket.com/albums/af305/tangar07/cruiserwheel.jpg)

i think im going to get the new zip zinger aloha and probably some of the orange spitfire magic mushrooms joints in probably 52mm so i can have a smaller cruiser too. i was going to ask if the magic mushroom wheels slide but i realized the powells my homie hooked up are 90a so im gonna try to do some power slides tomorrow and make my decision on whether to get the spits. but feel free to chime in with spitfire magic mushroom wheel knowledge if you've had them.

how are those ace 00s on a zinger? does it make the turning better or worse since they are a little skinnier than the deck? and are they lows or highs?

I know this has been discussed but what wheels do you guys have on your cruisers? I love the idea of pushing fast and cruising for longer but I don't want soft ass wheels that i can't powerslide on.

Don't have that one, but I do have the 9in one with the black/white stripes in the background and that thing is a tank. It seems thicker maybe 8 ply, has some nice wheel wells, and the top layers isn't beveled, so it's sharp instead of rounded of like a typical deck. I think it's so your feet stay on the board better. Pretty steep concave too. It has a long wheelbase too.

This came out so shitty. I tried using my power saw but it was just chipping the board so i ended up using a regular hand saw. I also used the top of the deck to practice with a woodburner a while back. Gonna get grip for it tomorrow.

This is like my 10th time trying to post this ugh
Girl board, 7.75 I think
8" Thunders, raw
Spitfire Speedies 80hd, fantastic wheels
Girl Gold bearings, they aren't great but get the job done
Bones soft bushings
"Leftover" 1" allen hardware, best hardware out!
Mob Grip

This deck was actually supposed to be a lot wider, but the manufacturers messed up on all these boards, but they ended up selling better than all the other cruisers they released with it.

This thread makes me wants a zip zinger now haha. A few years ago found a set of wheels for cheap at a yardsale. Homie says they were bullets but i'm not too sure. They're pretty soft and not too big, I'd say 55 or 56mm. And the other day a friend of mine gave me some 139 hollow Kostons so I replaced them for my 145 Thunder lows. I'm thinking of getting a zip zinger or a creature bruicidal tendencies deck and setting up the thunders and wheels. I'll need risers for sure though my trucks are pretty loose.

I remember going out skating with a dude in high school who had a metal board. At the time, I thought it was a foray into new skateboarding technology, but the tail also bent down to the ground from him doing a 180 on a five stair.

looked through this thread today while i was at work and now i really want a cruiser. probably going to stop by the shop tomorrow and check out what theyve got. i really like these two heroin decks and the slave rat racer. ive got to get something between 7.625 and 7.88 because the only spare trucks i have are some 7.75 ventures and i really dont want to blow a bunch of money on a cruiser set up.

splurged on the street creep christmas complete. its a 7.75. pretty awesome shape, the big square tail is really sick.

rest of the setup is:
58mm 80hd spitfires
super reds
krux k4 hi's. (never tried krux and got them because they were pretty cheep. im really impressed so far. it took maybe once up and down the block to break them in)

this is also the first time ive tried a custom grip job. it turned out ok, but i have a new respect for anyone who cuts any kind of intricate details in their grip.

i got to skate it for a few hours today and ive had more fun with it than i have skating in a long time. theres this little hill by my girlfriends house that ive bombed before on my regular board and the ground is so shitty that you barely get any speed riding down. i took the cruiser down it today and was honestly a little scared when i first started rolling down. its so fast and smooth. anyone who knocks cruisers needs to give one a try for a few hours. so much fun! sorry for the long stupid post, but im so psyched on this board. i havent had this much fun skating in a long time.

whats the deal with the cork tops? are you supposed to grip them, or skate them ungripped? i can see that having the cork top might absorb some of the shock and rumbling from shitty ground and make the board feel smoother. how do they skate?

I skate mine ungripped. You can grip it too but I think the point is it being easy on the shoes. Before I got those big 65 mm wheels and huge risers, I had 55mm wheels and you could actually "skate" it more, do little ollies and stuff. But even then, I didn't really trust the cork to grip on ollies, so ollieing on curbs was slightly interesting. But now with these colossal wheels, I don't have to worry about ollies cause they're impossible. Now this is strictly for cruising to work, store etc.

do you guys with rails do boardslides with them, or are they just more of an accessory? im thinking about putting these creature ones on mine. theres a few ledges not too far off my route to work and i thought it might be fun to slap some rails on there and do a few boardslides on the way home. it also seems like id have to put them pretty far in for the bottom of the board to not hit.

Broken-in Soft Indy Barrel Bushings + Indy Pivot Cups

Really digging this cruiser so far... First time on a set of Ace's. I really like the way they turn, just couldn't stand the stock bushings they came with. They felt a bit too stiff, so I swapped em out for some broken-in Indy barrel bushings. Also, one of the pivot cups came split, so I had to swap those out as well. But yeah, the soft wheel / soft riser combo feels awesome. Charging through oatmeal asphalt feels like riding on glass...

Haven't had a proper cruiser in a long time, so I'm pretty stoked that I was able to get the deck for cheap and frankenstein the rest of the setup.

This is a great looking setup. How wide is that board and what size trucks did you put on there?

Always wanted to put together a super wide cruiser, finally bit the bullet and did.
It's smooth and speedy, takes a bit of getting used to but it's a good time.

The spitfire 80hd wheels are really nice. I have the 58s and I like them a lot. I think they make a 54 and a 56 too. I'd go big if you want to go fast and if you want something that is a bit different than your regular set up. 54s if you still want to be able to do a lot of flip tricks.

The powell rat bones reissues I've been riding on my cruser set up are sick if you want a softer non-slidey wheel. 60mm 85a. A little cumbersome for tricks tho.

Skating the Lucas/Chliche/4* board with Thunder 149 hi and 58mm Spit Cardiels for around town.  Soft wheels are so fun for cracks/rough streets.  I never really thought about a cruiser, but for errands and such it's way better than a normal set up.  Rough streets and sidewalks that used to suck are smooth now.

149s for sure. Though I'm actually Bout to put 139s on my p1 since I want to steal my 149s for my new regular set up. Should be a strange ride. Hover board stylee. I'll report back

please do. general consensus seems to be 149's, but the p3  shape is only 8.375, so it could go either way.

This is sort of just a quick fix cuz I like the turning on the stage 11 149s so much better than my stage 9 139s that I need em on my daily driver ASAP. I'll either replace the 139s with another set of 149s when the money is free, or try some ace 44s

Yeah Pugmaster, you can just tear it in half before you peel off the back. You have to be super quick with it or it will get fucked up, and it never comes out the way you want it to, but it ends up looking pretty cool.

I would go with 149s or ace 44s. Dunno why I'm so down on my 139s lately but they just feel way less turny since I stepped it up. The p shapes all have a pretty exagerated taper, but in my opinion it makes more sense to have a bit of axle hanging out in the back then too little up front

Ignore the Tengu DVD and unmarked trucks.  I didn't do too many tricks on my old cruiser deck because it was a Pendleton Designarium board.  I plan on skating the shit out of this one though.

Here's just the deck:

What is everybody's input  here on the best cruiser wheels?

It really depends on your preferences

personally, I like medium sized wheels that are not too soft.  Big wheels make pushing weird and wheels that are too soft (like the bones ATF wheels) don't feel right for me.  I honestly still haven't found the right cruiser wheel for myself, but play around with different durometers
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Andrew on December 22, 2013, 11:38:39 PM
i have the spitfire 80ds and they feel kinda bouncy sometimes cause of how soft they are, but they're still good wheels.

I want to get something in the 90d range where i can still slide on my wheels, cause it's kinda hard with the 80ds

Same here. Those powell rat bones reissues I reccomended earlier in the thread are like rolling on a hot buttered cloud, but that's about all they're good for: rolling. They are a huge pain to slide, and make getting the board off the ground on flat a real task. I'm setting up a new shaped curb/crust board, and I need a wheel that is 57-58mm and about 90a. I feel like that would be the perfect balance, but I can't find that shit anywhere. These broadcast "issues" are close, but I feel like they might be too wide and clunky like the powells:

im going to set up a curb board soon too and im eyeing these. i think theyre like 92a, so theyve probably got a smooth ride but will still slide. probably really good for slappies too, but that round shape might feel really weird for anything else.

After skating it for a little longer, it turns out it's pretty much impossible to do a good ollie. I might try to drill some new holes a little bit closer to the middle, hopefully I don't fuck it up too bad.

Sick one. Just got that same Carroll board as a cruiser set up too. Can't wait to skate it.
How are you liking this board? Does the tail seem short to you? I've hardly skated it yet, but the first time I tried to ollie on it I ate shit going super fast over a manhole because the tail was shorter than I expected, and I didn't even pop.

Now that you mention it the tail looks really short. Thought it was just the photo's perspective on first glance.

I've stepped on it at FTC, it's short as hell

Yeah that tail is mad short. The more I've skated it though the more I've gotten a little more used to it.

old six hole venture HIs, one top bushing is an indy but the rest are the original greens. might switch to bones meds but might just have to break these in after being dormant for a decade plus. powell sword wheels i dyed green but turned out blue 58mm 90a. gonna buy new wheels, just debating what color and hardness.

maybe try some ace 22s? those are pretty small i think.

if youre really concerned, just take the board up to a skate shop and set some different trucks on it and see how they measure up.

Get the ace 22's. I have a zip zinger with thunder 147's and the overhang is fine, nothing major. The 22's are 7.6 or something, and thunder 147's are 8" so you should be good. Plus, ace rules

I have this Koston deck from that series and the tail is ridiculously short. The edge of the baseplate isnt flush with the board. It hangs like .25 onto the tail. I tried to get used to it, but was impossible. I don't even want to use it as a cruiser board.

Nah I don't think it fucks it up.  It just make the hanger sit in the pivot cup at a lower angle than originally intended.  Most people who use bones forgo the bottom washer and love it.  I just prefer the height of the added few mm and I feel like it turns quicker and deeper at the stock height. 

Oh and thanks for the love yall

They're a small, local company out of SoCal run by Russ Pope. They seem to have developed a regional cult following out there amongst the 30+, #curbcrushers, slappy Sunday set. Awesome shapes, with really Unique graphics. Russ hand paints and cuts most of his prototypes with Paul at PS Stix, who then presses up the batch. There was enough snow melt over the weekend that I was able to get out for a low-key cruise last night. Shape/wheelbase felt great.

Alright, choosing between two cruiser wheels, what durometer should I go with?

spitfire soft D's are 92a and there are these autobahns that are 90a.  I've tried 90a rat bones and I like the durometer but the wheel was 60mm which I could not handle.
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: Young Satchel on January 14, 2014, 03:52:47 PM
The 56mm soft D's I'm running on that setup I just posted aNd they Seem great out the box.  Sounds sorta nutty but I think if they were 90a and 57/58mm they might be my perfect cruiser wheel. I know that's a difference of 2a and 1mm; I'm a picky motherfucker about stupid particulars like this when it comes to my setups.  But I would definitely recommend them regardless...

I have the same ones. You can pretty much ride on gravel with them. 58s are a little big for tricks, and I've popped one of them off the core doing curb stalls, but it slid back on. Perfect for cruising, but if you want to be able to do all your flip tricks or even simple ledge tricks, I'd go with something smaller and maybe around the 90a range.

What do you think about the 169s for this shape, I picked up the Krampus on the same shape yesterday, and set it up with my 159s and then it rained, so I havent gotten to really ride it much, the little I did get to it felt like when you set up a 8.88 with 149s (a bit tippy with alot of leverage)  not awful just not a feeling that I enjoy. I get that its not really that big of a difference, and that its all in my head. I just really dont like kicking the axle when I push and i wanted to know if the 169 axles stick out at all bc eventhough its listed as a 9.5 board the tapper is pretty strong and the space at either of the axles is not even close to 9.5.

Stick w/ the 159's.
169's work best with 169's, specially that they are wider than they used to be.
Judge by the over the bolts width, not the belly of the beast.

I'll probably put a set of old bones mediums on after a bit depending on how I like these bushings.
For anyone who wants (what I think is) a perfect cruiser wheel, the OJ keyframes are incredible. They're soft enough that it's a breeze to skate rough terrain, but they're still hard enough to slide if you really put some effort into it.

It started as a cruiser, originally. But now, I'm skating it just as much, if not more than my normal set up.

Besides the overall length? -no, there is no real difference. The 149s are 8.5", the 159s are 8.75". They're the same shape and everything, the 159 just happens to be a tad longer in the axel and hangar.

Not much of a cruiser guy but decided to set one up due to a new job and skating through lots of cobble stone on my commute.

Scumco x Chromeball Corey Obrien board

So smooth.  And fast compared to my regular set up.

Welcome, stock 139s, 58mm 80Ds, risers, dramatic grip tape. I think that the 80Ds make it harder to ollie. They're just a tiny bit too soft. But for hauling, they're amazing. This shape kickflips like a dream and is fuckin' perfect for no-complys.

here's another one from the roster
neal hendrix new deal deck from 1991. the double kick was around for a couple years at the time, so the shape wasn't anything groundbreaking. i saw one of these go for $600 last year, but i like to skate mine. it even has those terrible turning gullwing street shadows. the ones with the plastic baseplate and axles that slip by pushing on them

what is the SMA board? and where did you get it?

It's and SMA 'Eight five' (can't really see it but that's written just under the back truck), setup with ACE 55s w/magnesium baseplates/Bones Meds/MOB/56.5mm Pi wheels/Black Panther 7s.

They're made in SoCal, I live in Santa Monica and the local shop near me carry them/tons of people around here use them (I love blocks away from a bowl/crete park where the team skates).

Tail is a bit tapered/narrow for my liking but I've moved up to 8.5" for street and swapped my Cardiel from bowl to street and needed a bowl board again (the SMA).

SMA on the Left: (tail is a bit pointy but other than that, it's very nice, plys are thin/board is light), AH Cardiel on the right.

When I found out about them I knew Id' ride'em. Hard to beat a local company in your city, especially when it's SMA. They're high quality for sure, tho they do carry a premium at the shops: $60 as they are all hand-made/stained and no two are a like.

If you are interested in getting one and they don't respond let me know and we can work something out. The shops usually have limited stock as they sell out VERY fast.

Sick! When you make cut designs in the grip tape like that, do you cut the grip and then apply it or do you apply it and run an exacto knife over the deck itself?  I've always been intrigued by these sick cut designs on people's grip but never really understood the proper way to do it

I think they're classics. If not, big heads, but not like a conical or a full if that's what you're wondering.

I had this Creature board lying around untouched since last summer so I decided to throw this together.

I need new bearings for it because the one's I managed to scrounge up were pretty dead, I also want to get some softer/larger wheels for it.  I had a set of clay wheels my dad had from his childhood that I wanted to put on it but I decided against that.

Super good man. Much better than you'd think.
The flick is a little weird at first, its way grippy but once broken in they skate like a charm. The insole is also way thicker than you'd think. Much comfier than Vans, for example. Only downside to them is they're expensive. But I feel that they're worth it overall.

Here's a picture of my cruiser I just got a week ago, in front of the fountain in the reforma in Mexico City. Got pretty lost and I was skating around the city for a couple hours and I'm glad I had this. It would suck if I just had my setup with tiny ass lil hard spitfires.
The setup:
Tired 8.75 golf board
Thunder 149 II raw trucks
OJ Hot Juice wheels 60mm (wish the shop had non-mismatched sets.)
Spitfire Classics bearings (not completely sure, they might be burners. Whichever ones have blue shields.)
Shorty's plain bolts
Two soft 1/8 riser pads per truck (sector 9 I think :/ )

I made it at a consproject in toronto. I think it is just like the create a skate wood. the concave and wheelbase and stuff was already pre-cut out so it was just the shape, graphic, and grip that I really did. The wheels were from an old cruiser I had. They are the 80hd's and I bought them off so-cal in like 2012. Nice wheels.

Yeah, are they the 56mm clear orange ones which have straight edges (70's style)? If so, I would not buy them, I had a set but the urethane was crappy nearly all of the wheels cracked/split around the edges. Chunks broke off.

The keyframe wheels are way better. Smoother and with more bounce to them.

The little doodies round orange like wheels look fun...

Your 80HD's are slow? Mine are super fast! The keyframes are the same, soft wheel. There might be a duro difference but I can't tell. Try Soft D's, like 92s.

eh not exactly slow, that wasn't the right word... i'm not sure what it is but it's almost like they're too smooth?  I was riding Powell Bombers for awhile and those felt great, just don't get smaller than 60.. and i have this neurotic thing about wanting my cruiser to be as close to my regular board as possible.

Anyone try kryptonics? my ojs might need replacing

I rode a set of the Blue 55mm Kryptonics for almost 10 months, they are the best cruiser wheel I have tried to date, super solid wheel, wore evenly, the fastest soft wheel ever, and very smooth on any surface even the worst roads. Only reason I took them off was because I chunked one doing a slappy on a curb and tore up the inner lip of the wheel. Will be buying a few more sets for sure, may even take it up to the Red Formula, I'd say avoid the green unless you have really awful roads to deal with, the biggest problem with the Green Kryptos & OJ Mini Hot juice is that 78A is just to soft, that's a lot of what leads to them ripping and cracking so quickly

It would depend on what wheels you are running but I wouldn't go bigger than 159's due to the taper on the board.

Lance Mountain future primitive
Thunder 169's? with bones soft bushings

OG mountain future primitive in relatively good condition will be worth a decent amount of money if you want to part with it rather than skate it.

haven't skated nearly enough over the last few months - so with the hopes that I might just have a cruise about a bit more exploring the new city where I'm working I've set this up

1939 board, Ace 55's, Kryptonic 91a, random offcuts of grip left in my bits box

Indy standards 109s,129s,139s
I've always rode spitfires growing up and I even have a spitfire tattoo but I dig bones ATFs on a smaller cruiser/liquor store board. They feel so good but STFs/SPFs I can not ride. I tried riding regular bones but they're not for me F4s and the classic formula spits are my shit. I session those little cruisers with the small ATFs every once and awhile but the DT, Z-Flex, and PP `Bones’ deck are mostly for skating to my car when I have to go to work or when I get home from work at 3am and don't want to be a dick to everyone sleeping. Hard wheels make so much noise at 3am. On a side note FUCK MY HOA! I have to park outside the complex and sometimes it's a bitch to find parking and I live way in the back corner so it's a mission

I got two long skateboards that I like to bomb hills with but I barely ride them. My homies that don't skate LOVE them. "Can I ride your longboard, bro?" Or "I'm going to the beach can I get that longboard?" I'm usually working but I know they're out mongo footing around Venice or Hermosa that day. AntiHero 34in and Zip Ziiiiiiiiiiiinger aren't longboards right? They're just long skateboards made by two awesome skateboard companies. Lots of longboarders in L.A. Don't want to get lumped in with them.

I'm skating an old Surprise square tail board as my cruiser and this might seem super nitpicky and odd, but do any of you think that your pop on a square tail board is different than your pop on a popsicle board?  I feel like I don't get as satisfying of a sound when skating my cruiser and it takes more effort to pop as high as I normally do, almost like the force is spread out over a larger area?  I don't know if it's the board or if it's because I'm skating super soft wheels, maybe the board is a little heavier, it's all in my head, or what.  It's not a big deal but I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this.

Rad N.L. Here's our father/son cruisers. My kid kinda commandeered the scumco so I got a new one to keep up with him

Scumco 8.7 x 32
Theeve  v1 TIAX 5.25, old and ground to the axle
5/16 risers
60mm OJ 78a
Bronson bearings

Skaterbuilt conekiller 9 x 32.5
Independent 159 with 1/8 risers
66mm gravity burners 77a (longboard wheels, gasp!)
Swiss super 6

Stoked on the skaterbuilt deck, it's like nothing I've ever ridden. Pointy nose, wheel wells, deep concave and Formica slick bottom. It's a slalom board with adjustable 17-23" wheelbase, I have it at 17, you can see the other mounting holes.  The wheels are massive! Even more plush and grippy than the OJs. Both setups are insanely fast and fun, the scumco with small theeves turn fast and twitchy while the skaterbuilt with 159s turn wide and swoopy.

On a side note, I'm impressed with the Bronson bearings. My son rides through every puddle he comes across (the board is more like an aquatic vehicle) and the bearings are still fast, smooth and quiet. I still cringe after every puddle though (http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i315/thxmg23/Smilies/lol.gif)

Anyone tried to modify a normal deck with a ripsaw to build a cruiser? How did it go? I'm interested to see your experience.
I have access to tools, and getting a standard deck will be cheaper than buying cruiser shape, plus adding the challenge and joys of DIY.

Anyway, here's my current cruise setup. It's a soviet plywood deck with a rubber pad on tail. I had to drill new holes to accommodate for Indys. Doing ollies on this is a challenge, therefore looking for a replacement.

Stoked Watson @ Ninetimes had the Natas.  Originally wanted it as a wall hanger, but had a set of 159's that I wasn't skating much and realized yeah..I might have to explain it too often, so set up the Natas. 

Natas
Indy 159's, old like 15 years old at least
generic abec 5's
risers
rails: wasn't going to but I liked the graphic
Bones: DTF's 58's, super stoked I still have em.

Sets up nice...I had the original one so it was hard to pass up. 

Zip Zinger
Destructo's
Reds
Bones: 91a, 54's experimental formula, GP was good enough to send me a set after I gave them some feedback. 

I'm not sure what I was thinking before, I had big ATF's on...risers....it was sketchy, this works way better.  I'm going to trade out the destructos, I'll look on craigslst for a more slap friendly name brand, lots worthless narrow trucks out there.

The 86a clouds are a great compromise between a spongey cruiser and hard street wheel. I can break them into power slides but  they still suck up shitty roads really well. Faster than your standard 78a for sure. Recommended.

I'd still like to try the Spitfire 80HD now that they fixed the core issues though.

Anyone tried to modify a normal deck with a ripsaw to build a cruiser? How did it go? I'm interested to see your experience.
I have access to tools, and getting a standard deck will be cheaper than buying cruiser shape, plus adding the challenge and joys of DIY.

Anyway, here's my current cruise setup. It's a soviet plywood deck with a rubber pad on tail. I had to drill new holes to accommodate for Indys. Doing ollies on this is a challenge, therefore looking for a replacement.

before finishing your text i wanted to ask if this was a soviet deck. soviet as in russian-soviet. if this is the case my mate used to have a similarly looking deck (circa 1988) with the beam running along for "added rigidity", bearings permanently fixed inside the clay-like wheels and weirdly dimensioned baseplates! i bet this thing is heavy as fuck. the only difference being that my mate's board was metal thus making it impossible for any trick to even be attempted. imagine this thing landing on your feet/toes hahaha

^ You're damn right. It's heavy as hell.

Wheels fell apart after first few runs, maybe because it was deserted in shed for 10+ years.

Trucks were awful and are long gone.

This set up is already dismantled and I'm keeping the deck as memorabilia. It skated terrible, although it was possible to kickflips and shuvits.

I decided for a more functional 21. century cruise setup.

Saw someone post one of these last month in the set-up thread. They were on sale on skatewarehouse, so I picked one up when I was ordering some other shit.

Not a true cruiser (got hard ass wheels on it). Gonna use it to skate tranny and curbs.

Schmitt Stix Rip-saw reissue w/modern concave (10x30)
Stage 11 159's
99a 59mm Pig wheels
Ceramic Super Reds
Welcome Candy Bars (These rails are actually pretty decent in how they perform. Not too slippery and they have a good handle-like inlay on the inside. The screws they come with suck though and will either be loose or eat through the plastic when you try to get em tight. In the world of rails, I'd rate them above Pig, but maybe not as good as Powell. Plus when you originally install them, they have adhesive backs). 

Should be using risers, but I hate being higher off the ground. I'd rather just run my trucks a bit tighter and deal with some rubbing. Actually, with the 159's, the front wheels stick out a good 1/4 inch, so I don't think they'll bite that hard.

It's a bit colour matched and religious despite me being agnostic, think I got a bit OCD at 40. The crucifix is inverted when you skate which I think is pretty subtle ;)

Santa Cruz Jason Jessee 8.9"
Indy 159s
Bones hard bushings
Zealous bearings (with built in spacers and speedrings. Love them!)
Sushi 1" Allen hardware
Indy 1/8" risers
Ricta Clouds 60mm 78A
Mob grip

All new everything except the bearings and bushings. All started from thinking of getting bigger and softer wheels for my cruiser, so the vibration won't fuck up the healing on my fractured leg and I can possibly go roll a bit earlier than I could otherwise.

25 euros for the wheels turned into a 250 euro order including the deck and trucks and a whole bunch of other stuff. Shoutout to BMCSteve for recommending the 159s instead of 169s. Seems like a perfect fit. From the pic it looks like the wheels stick out but actually they're pretty much flush.

Now I just gotta wait for spring and some sort of a permission from the doctor to go roll. Hopefully that will be sooner than later. But right now I have no idea when that might be. Gonna be months though I'm quite sure.

This is also my first shaped deck ever and a first purpose built cruiser. Previous cruisers were just old setups with softer wheels.

Thanks man. I'm pretty hyped on it also. I think it'll be a while longer before I can skate properly, but even just cruising down the street is awesome IMO. Setting it all up a few days ago didn't help my urge to go skate at all but instead made it a lot worse.  :)

I also feel you on the urge to buy stuff you don't need. Especially now that I'm home all day doing nothing and thinking about skating way too much. Just gotta keep strong.

I'd recommend super redz! I've been riding some on my main set-up and they're real fine 8)

Not as expensive as swiss/six balls, but seem smoother and tougher than plain redz.

I suggest OJs Keyframes and whatever bearings you like. As for wheel size, the bigger they are, the smoother the ride. I'm running 54 mm Keyframes on my other cruiser with a normal popsicle deck and the only difference to my main setup (54 mm wheels also) is that it's way grippier and will go much nicer over rough stuff. Then I have another cruiser with 60 mm Ricta Clouds with a shaped deck. Even though I prefer Keyframes to Clouds, the set up with the Clouds goes smoother due to the bigger wheel size. You do notice the bigger wheel size when pushing especially since I put risers on that setup but I don't really mind it as the point was to set up a wide and smooth ride, not something similar to my main setup. So, it really depends on what you want from your cruiser.

All right, so my first picture post and it took me a min. Had to relearn how to use my photobucket, couldnt get the other ways to work. 

Anyways, this is a fun one. Old Santa Cruz pro, Richard Kirby, (from like the mid to late 90's) started his little jam called Big Mess a few years back and I had a couple of these decks.  Roskob rip off which got Kirby a cease &  desist from NHS. This was his 3 F*ckin' Months celebration deck.  I tried setting up as a mini ramp jammer, but it was a little too short, I kept getting pitched forward. 31.25 by 8.5 (in the widest part) with a big dbl wheelbase at 14.75 or 14.25.  Im rocking some old Indys, prob Stage 8s so they could be the 159, I dont really remember. The axle slips like crazy on both of them and I just ended up keeping them in a box for years. Initially, I had set up some Bones Filmbot 56mm Softies, which were actually too soft and the board would bounce all over the place. I found the OJ Ditch Witch 56mm with a 92a, but they feel a little harder, could be the shape though.  They slide great and can go through some rough shit, but I did chip a couple times after the first session. So ignore the Bones sticker and OJ wheels set up please. Bones Super Reds and Im just waiting for the speed cream to burn off before I pop the shields.

This is a fun set up and I usually keep it in my car for when I find a new spot of if I break down, I dont have to walk. Some of them board wall hanger collector guys on Skull&Bones would lose their shit cause Im riding this, but fuck it.

That shape looks super fun, and with those dimensions I'd use it as a regular setup.

Any recommendations for cruiser wheel/bearing setup?

Edit: just read the above suggestions for the bombers, those looks decent. Still lost when it comes to bearings though. I've only skated flip HKD bearings for my entire skate life.

I suggest OJs Keyframes and whatever bearings you like. As for wheel size, the bigger they are, the smoother the ride. I'm running 54 mm Keyframes on my other cruiser with a normal popsicle deck and the only difference to my main setup (54 mm wheels also) is that it's way grippier and will go much nicer over rough stuff. Then I have another cruiser with 60 mm Ricta Clouds with a shaped deck. Even though I prefer Keyframes to Clouds, the set up with the Clouds goes smoother due to the bigger wheel size. You do notice the bigger wheel size when pushing especially since I put risers on that setup but I don't really mind it as the point was to set up a wide and smooth ride, not something similar to my main setup. So, it really depends on what you want from your cruiser.

This has been really helpful, thanks! What do you think would be the biggest wheel size I can get away with, without using riser pads? I love being low to the ground but wheel bite's a bitch..

I'm thinking the 56mm's?

It all depends on what you like and what trucks you have and how they're set up. I run 54 mm wheels normally with Indys or Aces and with Indys I still get wheelbite every now and then but it's manageable enough.

I put 1/8" risers on the cruiser with 60 mm wheels to get the same clearance as 54 mm wheels with no risers and I like it. I personally like a deep turn though. I have 1/4" risers laying around too, but I couldn't set them up when i set up the cruiser cuz I didn't have long enough bolts. Might change it up sometime to see if I'd like an even deeper turn better. Personally I don't think I would use wheels bigger than 54 mm without risers, but it really is personal preference.

Also worth taking into account with soft wheels that wheelbite is much worse than with hard wheels due to how grippy the wheels are. You'll get pitched way easier.

This. With soft wheels you'll want your trucks a lot higher than usual (however high you'd set them for a regular wheels, add another 1/8th of an inch), wheel bite with hard wheels is annoying, with softies.. its death.

I had no idea - You fellas are life savers.

Well, I decided on Spitfire 58mm Spitfire Chargers. I also grabbed 2 sets of 1/8" risers (incase 1/8" isn't enough clearance). I had my eye on OJ keyframes but caught these for a great price online.

Thanks again for all the advice, Pals.

Been looking at this board, but I ride 159s. I haven't found/seen the board in person. Based on what you've seen, will 159s be too wide on the back?
Title: Re: Post Your Cruiser
Post by: N.L. on September 17, 2017, 03:53:31 PM
159s will probably be a better fit than the 149s I have on it.

Unfortunately, I slipped out in traffic and the board went under an Audio and is now in 2 pieces. First session, so bummed.

I would recommend indy 159s, they're not overly wide (so you can use it on a non-cruising set up), but they help a taller ride feel better.

And if you want to still feel like you're riding something close to a real board, stay under 58mm or so IMO. Once you get to 60mm and over it gets really out of hand with ollies and such.

That sucks, I was gonna comment last week how nice that board looked.

I rolled a bacon 8.5 popsicle out into traffic 15 minutes into it's life once. It didn't even snap though, just cracked through 2 plies at rear bolts... that SC wood  ;D

I like the Zagger better with 159's, feels more cruiser style. If you've got normal width wheels, the won't stick out at all. That said, the 149's are pretty much a perfect fit.

Through an unusual chain of events today, I found a dude selling a brand new pair of Thunder 151s for 20 bucks in my town so I grabbed them. I've only gotten a chance to do a quick lap around my driveway but right off the bat they feel more stable and just more fun to ride.
