What's the shortest time someone on here ever grinded down to the axle? I never did it myself. I'm going to do my best now.

During the winter, skating the mini ramp at my work every night after closing, I got down to the axle of my back truck in 2.5 months strictly from bs 5-0 fakies, fs 5-0s, and our no waxing the coping rule.

that's alot of slappies...haven't done it in years either....axel slip would drive me to insanity before I even got near.  Remember before they moved the mounting hardware holes back, guys would wear through the baseplate from doing crooked grinds.

I skated these for almost 7 months, I think the majority of the wear is from front 5-0s and smiths on tranny ( I take pride in actually standing up and grinding 10+ feet, vs. the very popular frontside kickturn truck tap) If the kingpin hadn't snapped off, I'd still be skating them.

I haven't done this in years and years.  Back in 88, before my friends and I discovered waxing curbs, we would just raw haul as fast as we could and slappy into grinds at a curb cut. 12 foot grinds, no wax, unpainted.  Ground down to the axle on one pair.  Gullwing super pro III's.  My first trucks were well on their way (Tracker Ultra lites) but the kingpin broke and those baseplates were so lame, the kingpin wasn't removable so basically ditched them.

I once saw Sam Devlin grind through the pivot part of his Indy's from doing nose and tail slides.  So raw.

These days, all I really skate are plaza ledges.  The ledges there (granite and metal) always seem to be slippery and waxed.  Probably never gonna get down to the axle the rest of my life.

Have not done it in a while, my ACE are getting worn down though and I plan on getting to the axle on them. And I once got to the axle in 6 weeks.

On my last board, before it got jacked out of my car, the back truck was so jacked. It was an indy baseplate with a tracker hanger I believe. It had a groove down to the axel from doing f/s 5-0s, and the nut for the king pin couldn't be adjusted because it was grinded so far down from smith grinds. I wish I had a picture to show. They turned so good.

Why would you replace a pair of trucks before grinding to the axle?

I just did it... No photo evidence though. I gave the trucks to my next door neighbors kid cause he just started skateboarding and needs some stuff.

You know why you never see this shit anymore? Because kids stick to skateparks and plazas now and everything street is withering into the memory's of older kids who did their first 5050 on a ledge in their town and not a box at a park that dad brought them to. That's just my theory at least.

Not really the same deal, but my buddy has been riding the same wheels for so long that you can literally see the bearing THROUGH the wheel.

most of these dudes skate 90% transition. and to grind to the axle you have to keep trucks for a long time, which a lot of people don't do.

Breaking in new trucks is the worst, which is why it makes sense to keep your trucks for a long time.

^ perfect post for my response.

You fucking suck at transition. Don't talk shit. Especially considering grinding unwaxed pool block (which you have never done) will grind your truck down like a motherfucker. But again, you entered I $100 bet and had a year to learn it, and at the end of said year had 3 tricks, and appeared to be unable to keep your speed on a 3 foot mini, so don't act better than it.


And to the person wondering why somebody would grind to the axle of a truck- new trucks are the worst fucking thing ever. It takes too damn long to get them feeling right, and I don't go through that unless I have to.

HAHAHAHA you're such an idiot. I'd be willing to bet money I'm way better than you at transition and skateboarding in general. I actually said the reason they're grinded down was because they skate transition. gipper You talk all this shit online but whenever i say see me in person you make some excuses or give me the run around. you're a faggot.
