That really breaks my heart. My condolences..

Thanks Pals. Literally 15 mins into its debut ride... The driver called me 'irresponsible.' I agreed with him and walked away a piece of board in each hand.

tsk tsk tsk. you need to think about what you've done and hopefully learn from your mistake. maybe one day you can contribute to society like the rest of us who pay taxes and lead respectable lives.

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

Looking at maybe getting a cruiser to get around, but have never really experimented with them

I have my eyes on this Krooked Zig Zagger, a buddy of mine had one and it was the perfect shape but he had BIG wheels on it.

Truck/wheel recommendations? I want something that can get over rough-ish terrain but still feel like a real board/hit a curb every once and while

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.


I should probably size up the trucks on my Zig Zagger. I think I've got like 147s on it or something. :p



Follow up to my own post: Would 159s or 149s better suit a Zig Zagger? It might be fun to get really wide ones.

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.

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.



But the local skate shop hooked up a bit of a deal on this Krooked....



I bought this board. I skated it for the first time earlier today. It rides great and the 159s feel good on it. Thanks for answering my question.

haven't had a proper cruiser in a long time, so i'm pretty excited to skate this.

5boro 8.5
indy 169s...i think? not sure of width.
58mm OJ keyframe plain janes
bones swiss
some risers





Would give the OJ Plain Jane Keyframe II 87a 54mm a try (are they any good? POWELL PERALTA G-SLIDES 56mm 85A I think they are to wide... like soft wheels, Ricta Clouds 55mm 86A are the shit ... love them ;) )

i've been hurt for a little bit, so I frankensteined this cruiser together

the board is some piece of shit warped Stereo i got for 15 bucks on Amazon several years ago.  I sanded the graphic off then put a layer of clear, a layer of green, and a layer of black.

venture Highs
59 MM Bones rough riders
Heroin glow in the dark rails i got in a mystery box

eager to see how it looks once the paint starts scraping off

Bringing this thread back from the dead because I just set up a brand new cruiser. Also I can't remember if I ever had a cruiser set up before.



9 Theories
8.5 Krux (never skated krux before)
54 OJ Keyframes
Reds

I wish I got bigger Keyframes but I cruised around on this a little and really like them.

Spicy boi.
