I recently put some Indy 1/4 risers on mine... yeah yeah, I know "Risers?! Lame!".
But it honestly works for me. It adds that extra height but not all the way to mid. Perfect in between.
or maybe its because your fist has to first be purified in the waters of lake minnetonka before it can touch dylons.

You ride risers pad with low trucks?

a lot of people swear by them but thunders have always been at the bottom of my list. 
they turn great but they definitely don't grind as good as indy or venture IMO.

That's why you should buy venture highs. Thunders and indy's suck.

Then why do tons of pros and ams ride them?  Some even ride for other companies and still skate them.
Because people are followers, and they don't have to worry about trucks breaking, because they get them for free. The last three sets of trucks i have broke. 2 sets of indys and 1 set of thunders. Never broke a set of ventures.
Ventures is the only trucks that broke for me, had 2 sets of venture highs

Yeah. I don't know why but it actually feels pretty good. Happy-medium between low and mid.

baseplates breaking on the indys? i used to have that problem. i dont skate as much as i did when i was breaking them all the time, but i have a set of the newest 149s, theyre almost a year old and theyre perfect.

My friend was talking about how he met Daryl Angel at a park a couple times, And one time Daryl showed him his trucks and they were just Indys with a royal sticker over them. Jerry Hsu does it too.

Newest Vans (fs wallride from some bump to rail) ad J-Lay is riding Independents, and any time I've heard of people skating with Biebel he's got Ventures with the "V" rubbed off.  Most professionals will not stray from the big 3 (Indy, Thunder, Venture).

MFS, email DLX. If you don't like the product they're going to make up for it with customer service. Damon's the nicest and he'll help you out, I know Locbrew got a set of Spitfire's replaced a little while back. [email protected]

I saw Ellington use Indy's once.

I liked taking the front one off with acetone so I could easily tell the front from the back truck.  I bet 90% of the dudes on silver don't ride those trucks.  Everyone I have ever known has completely hated those damn trucks.
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

I have a friend who has a pair and seems to like them. I don't know why, they don't feel that great. I keep telling him to get some Indys, if not then at least Thunder or something.

I had some thunders that lasted about a year. Most problematic trucks I've ever had. The axle stripped at least twice, the kingpin snapped, and they broke when my board hit the side of a ramp.
