Venture Trucks
« on: December 26, 2011, 10:49:41 PM »


I always go back and forth between Indy's and Venture's, but this time I'm committed<3.

stock bushings ftw, surprisingly.

and i prefer the og logo on the hanger versus the new dlx version.

Yeah, i don't like the new DLX logo. Oh well. Hopefully they re-release the old "awake" logo for a limited run. That'd be tight.

Venture for life. Never even set up another brand truck before. For me, bones med bushings though.

Had a set back in 08, i remember not liking them at all. I thought they turned really weird. I ended up skating them for like three months, it wasn't a good three months, ahah.

They're all I skated from '93 up until I decided to give the Indy Stage 9 a try. I've always loved Venture and I'll be picking up a pair of high 5.2s when these Stage 10s die. I also skated a pair of Thunder 147 highs somewhere in there that I really enjoyed. All three are great trucks but I'll always feel like Venture is "my" truck.

Is there a big difference between venture and bones medium bushings? bones' return better from the start?
Just got a new pair of ventures and the bushings seem alot softer than i remembered.

I'm skating the low's with medium bones bushings.  I've been skating Ventures for a long time, but I've been wanting to try a high truck. I might try something different like Thunder 145 High's, or Indy's.  Hopefully it will be easier to ollie higher.

Anybody try the 5.8s? My board size is hovering between 8 and 8.25. Might step up to the really wide 'uns if I go any bigger.

It's hard to convince people over a message board BUT just wanted to point out that we reinforced them in a couple different places.
They won't turn or feel different, just reinforced them...
