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.

Any of you guys try the OJ Mini Hot Juice wheels?

Found an old blood wizard cruiser in a closet and was gonna set it up with some old 109s i have laying around, hoping the OJ's would cut down on the magic carpet effect

I had bad luck with them. I put 55mm Hot Juice on my kid's cruiser and they are fine for her but I like to carve around and really dig them in... Anyway, they crack and split pretty easily. I'd recommend the Ricta clouds or another regular shaped wheel. The 86as are really nice.

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...

The new daily commuter:



Welcome Miller w/mob m-80
ACE 55s w/88a indy aftermarket bushings and magnesium plates
60mm Bones ATFs / Andale 7s
1/8" indy shock pads
1" Indy bolts

You can just barely see the edges of the wheels due to how much the board tapers.

That looks really nice. Are you rocking soft wheels? They look small.

My new baby. Flip P2 David Gonzales, Diamond Ace 33's, 54mm OJ Keyframes (87A), Pig Rails, Indy mounting hardware and generic ceramic bearings. So much fun!  ;D






this has probably been asked in this thread somewhere but how are those OJ Keyframes?  I want something faster than the spitfire 80's but still soft enough to cruise down the cratered street I live on.

They're  pretty good smooth over cracks and rough asphalt, worth a try.

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.

Curious to try the ATF's, if there anything like the old DTF's(I think they just might have changed the name of the formula?), they are great comprise between hard and soft, both smooth and pretty easily slid

I wanted to try something shaped differently.
Powell Peralta Steve board (Not Sure on the size)
Independent 149
Bones Super Reds
Bones Classic 92a 64mm
Mob Grip
Shorty's 1" hardware

(I really need risers)
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

It tapers and I felt 159 fit a little too big. Thank you

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

^ Nice one!  Still one of my favorite series in the last 5+ years.

I don't really skate it as a cruiser but I just swapped out my street axe with this new street plant 8.875
