Really liking the wheels so far. No flat spots on anything that I would normally get flat spots on instantly. The 99s grip very well. Went to a local indoor park that I normally slide out very easy because everything is so waxed and the wood they use. They gripped amazing. Only complaint was doing a slappy crook on a curb and my inside wheel has some severe chipping and I just got them last Saturday. Anyone else have problems with chipping?

Im asking a friend who is flying to New York in two weeks to buy me a pair!
Because these wheels will go for like 70-90 dollars in Sweden.

Does anyone from there know any shops who has them yet?

I've noticed prices all over the board for them. From $39.95 to $55.  What's the MSRP?

Some "skateshops"...ahem... are shady as fuck these days.
and get an old bum from the street to be the referee for one game, should be interesting

Gonna say $35 as that is where most online places have them selling for as well as a couple shops close to me.  My new favorite semi local shop has them for $33 http://www.seasonsskateshop.bigcartel.com/category/wheels

It's been about two months since I've had a set, and I have to say they are holding up very well.
In my last review I said they shrunk down a bit skating them in the time I've had them, but after the first month or so they stopped shrinking, they've pretty much just stayed the same from that point on. It's pretty weird, but really awesome. They shrunk down a couple of millimeters the first month I skated them since I pretty much skate everywhere and the ground here ain't the smoothest, but then they pretty much just reached a certain point and stopped shrinking from there, and I still skate everywhere on the rough ass ground here. Like I said, it's pretty weird but also pretty damn awesome.

I just bought a set of the full shapes yesterday, probably going to set them up tonight. The only weird thing is that one wheel is lighter (color wise) than the other three. Probably nothing, but I thought it was strange.
Look I'm not selling anything that doesn't have my jizz on it. I don't care how much is offered.

The 101a are slick as hell. Really fun to powerslide on but I was always nervous taking turns at high speeds. One time I was carving a bowl and all of a sudden just started bs powersliding this corner. I havent tried the 99as yet I wish they would make them in 100s!

I got the 99 classic shapes in a 53. Haven't set them up yet but these good reviews seem very promising.

Most spitfires at 510 skateboarding in bekreley always had em for $28 and bones stfs were $35 so I'm sure the formula 4s should be about the same as regular spits. There's no price difference between regular spitfires and the f1s

I got some 99 classic shapes in 54. considering how these have been so far for powerslides, i'd be scared to try 101's.
no complaints so far.

the 101's are definitely grippier than STF's. didn't feel like i was sliding out constantly on a metal quarter, but used to with the bones.

I've been skating strictly bones stf's for around four years now. How hard would it be to get used to the 99a formula fours?
Has anyone made the transition from Bones STF's to 99a Formula Fours?

I love the feel of sliding really well on ledges that aren't caked with wax, but it's a bitch to slide out at parks all of the time.
If anything, I'll just opt for the 101a wheels --- I'm just looking for some feedback

The classic shaped 99s slide really well and screech, but 101's will be a better replacement.
I only noticed the slickness at one new skatepark that is pretty damn fast.

These F4's are the truth, I was shocked how responsive they are.  If everyone's wheels are sliding like mine are, expect the next magenta vid to literally be the silliest shit of all time hahaha.

me. just set my 101 54mm today and i must say i goddamn im sold
what i loved/hated about bones was the easiness and effortlessness to powerslide.
with these you can actually feel the grippiness the F4s have on the ground right away and you can powerslide about the same(but gotta put more weight/go slightly faster)
zero flatspots
made me feel much more confident and had control over the board than being slippery with bones.
also, slappys felt easier on classical shape than stf tablets, but thats just me
AND theyre louder!


I just want everyone to know that I'm only 32.8% skateboarder, and that's on a good day. The rest is just soy and cum.

ARE THEY BETTER THAN THE BONES MINICUBICS ?

OF COURSE NOT
BONES MINICUBICS GRIP LIKE GORILLA PAWS
POWERSLIDE WITH STYLE
AND THE DOUBLE ROUNDED EDGES ARE PERFECT FOR COPING, CURBS AND XTREME LANDINGS


BUT MAYBE I WOULD TRY A F4 IF THEY CAME IN 64

I was thinking the same thing as I was powersliding over double pump humps and down stairs at the park

Did you get new bearings as well?
Do you tighten your wheels up a lot too?
Both those things make new wheels feel a bit weird.
Just a thought.
