Chocolate Chico Brenes Big Boy 8.75
Ace 55
Spitfire F4 52mm Classics
Bones Swiss 

I broke the other Chico in less than an hour but really wanted to try the shape out again. I had Ace 44's on the first one.



I'm really interested in that shape!! Does chico ride those boards? I remember seeing a clip of him riding one. They look like so much fun

Yep, that's the one. That's also the reason I sought it out, by watching Chico skate it on Insta. I got one session on it yesterday. I love the way it rides. I might pick up another to put back after this one is retired.

Yes. Love > 8.5 inch decks with small wheels. How's it feel?
I know you didn't ask me but I personally ride 8.5s and just stepped it down from a decade + of only 52s to 50s and it feels amazing. People always trip too at how small my wheels look with that size deck or tell me that I'm actually doing more harm by riding my wheels that small lol.
Iíve been riding 50mm wheels for years and itís amazing how people get All sideways about it . I just wish the new lock ins were 50mm theyíre my new favorites but only in 52 . Anyway small wheels all the way !
being a guy whos been riding 54mm-56mm for 10 years now ,im curious to your opinion is their benefits to riding smaller wheels or is it an aesthetics thing for you?
I originally bought the 48s to be a 90s-style setup with the Baker impact stripe deck (posted a couple pages back), but I normally ride 50-51mm so it wasn't a big drop anyway.  I love small wheels for their reduced weight and aesthetic, and I pretty much only skate low-impact stuff anyway...curbs, ledges, etc.  If I'm trying to get somewhere fast, I'll take my cruiser out.

I couldnít have said it bettter . Aesthetics plays apart for sure  . The larger wheels just look so bulky . Itís does of course depend on what your skating . When I skate transition I do like a 54/55 wheel.

I loved bones bushings in thunder, but those 94a thunder bushings are flawless with this kind of setup thunder feel really good in deep turning. I just hope this don't mush out too soon like bones.

Heated Wheel Polarizer 6 ply 6.0
Sure Grip Rollerskate Trucks
Bones Rough Riders 56mm
Powerdyne Hop Up Kit Bushings
Bones Swiss 6

I finally snagged a real Polarizer off Neil Blender. Heated Wheel is Blenders board company and he makes a small amount of these a year, and they're pretty much just available in 2 San Diego skate shops, so i'm beyond stoked.  Picked up a Vert board too which i'll post later.  Cant describe the ride on these things, too much fun.  Turns like nothing else and feels so comfortable. Slight convex, downturned nose and tail and super low to the ground, feels amazing under foot and you can turn so deep and tight. Rollerskate trucks turn much better than small skate trucks.  Nothing like it on a flowy small bowl, on a beer run or just pelting down some hills.  Watson Laminates presses the boards and the stain is so glossy and nice.  Stoked.

This set up today made me a little nuts . I usually ride around and 8.5 but this graphic in 8.5 was this obnoxious anxiety ridden blue so it was a no go so I went the 8.25 . Now my dilemma this morning was the thunder the said the 149 was to wide for and 8.25 so I put some Indys on which I posted on the truck set up thread . Then after looking st I knew I would hate going back to narowwer trucks so I said fuck it and put the thunders on and went with new wheels as well . I was trying to go through older wheels but I just canít man I need fresh wheels . I try and skate my set up for a while and my last set up Iíve be skating since late April . I nvr skated the skate mental with the same trucks and wheels so hopefully those sml wheels are good .

I love white boards , so clean loooking . I got to ask how you could set up new board/trucks and not new wheels . That would make me insane .

yes! I noticed once I got this board, that I've never had a board with a white graphic, I really like it for some reason. but mainly, I just love this 8" isle shape. I've had two other of the same isle shape with different graphics. As for the wheel situation, I had just enough money for the trucks and deck haha. but new wheels and bearings next paycheck.
