ive slowly accumulated parts for a cruiser, and found a few holiday deals to expedite the process.

I set this up earlier this year:


I planned to use it just to cruise but it actually skates pretty well.  It has a nice big nose for noseslides.  Lots of no-complys are mandatory on any old-school Ray Barbee board.

Nope, they're Tracker Street Tracks with ultralight baseplates.  People shit on those trucks all the time but I rode them when I first started skating.  I found them cheap online a few years ago and could resist.

I can't imagine anyone decent at skateboarding having a cruiser, unless they film.

or live in a city
or don't own a car
You can use your regular board for transportation.

I spend about half my year in Europe, believe me unless you are blessed with super stamina, you don't wanna push around on 52's in the regular Streets in Germany, England, Norway, Holland and so on

I rode my friends Zagger and it did feel a lot more stable and solid than my Zinger. I think I still prefer my Zinger.

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.

I wish I had something to post here, too. I'm too frugal to pick up a zip zinger and some bigger wheels.
Thats why God created Christmas.

If I had an extra couple hundred bones I would've definitely bought a Janoski cork grip cruiser setup today.  Though cork grip may not be very practical, the Hopps one was sick too.

I want the Silas cork top so badly.

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.

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.

I'm also a product of the early 90's when pro's used to put different companies stickers on their boards.

working at a skateshop helped me acquire a shitload of cruiser. i made the mistake of trading/giving away my now favorite ones; creature return of the mummy, hosoi hammerhead krooked, and a mike mcgill skull and snake original. i'll post pictures of the ones i still have within the next couple of days

Old Schwinns were super popular around here for long time. Now the kids all want the fixed gears. Schwinns are more stylish.
