Yes but they do make lows in 22 and 33 sizes

Bump. Just got some high 33's. The winter is still aggressive, but I figured buying new shit would get me amped for spring.

even though i'm recovering from an ankle injury (it'll be a little while...), i just got some 44's. definitely hyped me up to keep up with my physical therapy because having fresh stuff in reserve is just plain nice.

Got some 44s for Christmas.  Skated them no more than 3 times due to shit weather, but they feel great.  Except for stupid creaky pivot cup on one of them  :-\

I got some 44s on a Christmas complete and I've skated it probably 10 times. I love how the trucks turn, but they're still super squeaky. They grind a little weird because the way the hanger is curved so that will take some getting used to. I heard they made it like that so that your grind on the side of the truck rather than in the middle. Mine broke in almost instantly and they keep feeling looser and looser the more I skate them. I've been skating that set up mostly this winter, but today I rode my other set up with Indy 139s and they felt so tight today, even though I originally set the aces around the same as my Indys, and I wouldn't have considered the Indys to be tight before I got the aces. Overall I love them and back them 100%.

Anyone know what hardness bones bushings ace comes with now? I might have to get some for my Indys now because I love the way the aces feel.

^^^that gets me psyched. I went from a pair of indys to thunders and now to ace. Indy and thunders could not get loose enough even with bones for me.

Aces are the shit. I've been skating them for almost a year now and I jumped on a board with Indys the other day and felt like I couldn't turn at all.

Yea I have bent about 3 pairs of them, but they are still the best. I agree you feel like Indy's, Thunder, Theeve don't turn for shit after riding them. I have the magnesium baseplates and they slide well on nose and tail slides. Get some

I walked in to the shop the other day and picked a pair of raw 33's... Walked out with stage 11 139's.

After reading your description of how ace's turn, there is no way I could ever skate those, I love the way they look though, the shape of the hanger is cool, reminds me of a wider Indy 109.

realized that i ace doesnt come with bones bushings and i got them confused with theeve. if i were going to go with bones bushings on my indys to get close to the same feel as my aces, would you guys go with soft of medium?

I think I'm going to try out Aces on my next board. I've been on nothing but Indy's for a long long time, and it would be nice to do something new.

I have been riding them since they came out, I have one set on my pool board that are ground to the axle and still not bent, I weigh 200 lbs and can't bend them, how did yours bend?

Do they make an 8.0/8.125 truck? I just stepped down from 8.5 and need a new set of trucks. I might end up going to 8.25 so I guess I could always get the 44's. But most likely I'll stay at 8/8.125.

I got the 33s. I have yet to receive them in the mail, but they are allegedly for 7.88-8.125

You're probably thinking of the magnesium baseplates.. Try contacting them at [email protected] , they answer pretty quickly

I've got a set of 44s with bones mediums, soft khiro cups and magnesium plates, epic combination; I've ridden them on 8.125"/8.25"/8.38"s

On my 8.75" setup I use a set of 55s, bowl use only.

A couple of years ago I rode some 03 lows with bones hards, seemed to work well

Now as far as comparing them to other trucks, the new V3 Theeves w/out the top washer are really stellar trucks and I prefer them to ACE on street as they are more stable/less squirrly, but if you skate tranny, Aces are untouchable (having skated stage 11/thunder/theeve in tranny).

One thing of note, if you ride loose and use the kihro aluminum insert bushing ACEs will destroy them.

I will throw this out there that while Ace Trucks may not look the best they are very solid and I am not the only one in my group of skaters to ride them. All in all they are a great set of trucks!

I'm dying with my current set of thunders and might want to try out Aces. If 147s feel a bit too narrow for an 8.125, should I go for the 44s or 33s?

if 147 feels too narrow you should go with 44s.
im riding 33s on 8,125 boards and im happy with it, if youre riding 44s youre axle will stick out a little bit

Damn, basically it'll be a mindfuck either way. Guess I'll have to decide which width looks worse.

I replaced the bushings (with Bones hards) and pivot cups (with Indy ones) in my Aces that I've had for a couple months, and even after skating a few times since then, my setup feels like shit. Super creaky and just doesn't turn right. Is it just the bushings or do pivot cups have to be broken in too? Usually Bones bushings don't take this long to break in so I'm not sure what to do other than just ride it out.
Any tips?
damn those yarys bout those squats

dont fuck with your pivot cups if you dont have to. They are the worst thing to break in, and new ones will make your trucks feel like shit. As a temporary fix. try putting a very small amount of grease on the tip of your hanger, where it goes in the pivot cup. While your truck is apart, put some grease in and around your bushing seats also. If the sound goes away, great. If it comes back, use some sand paper to rough up those same spots.
