Mag - Nice looking haul! Interested to hear how those Gonz pros skate for you. I tried them on and liked the feel. I haven't pulled the trigger tho. You're going to love the SLR. Great choice.

Thanks heritage! I've never skated a pair of SLR's before, but have only heard good things about them here on SLAP. Super stoked on just the color alone on these SLR, and impressed by the construction of the sole. Couldn't pass up on $25 each!

Pitcrew "Where I'm From" DVD
$8.12 on eBay.

For me this was like the find of the decade. Such a great video all around. Sick parts from everyone. Good editing/soundtrack.
Plus this video has the Pepe Martinez tribute part. Pepe has been my favorite skater since about 1993, so owning this video with his tribute part really means alot to me. Forever missed.

I'm really liking the 8.25 Krux - one thing is I wish I could get a lower truck in 149 that actually turns (sorry thunder, you still don't turn as carvy as I like and most bushings are a pain in the ass other than yours, which are too hard).

Doesn't one have to do with the other? I switched my regular indy baseplates to forged ones which are like 1.5mm lower and the turning was significantly less carvy.

To an extent, I guess?

ACE hi and Thunder hi are super close in height if not exactly the same and ACE are by far more carvey due to the geo.

I hope you enjoy these, but those lakai soles are from an older line and, to me, are extremely slippery and un-flexable. I wouldn't base your opinion of Lakai off them. I'm skating the new slip-on Lakai Owen now, and it's one of the best shoes out of the box I've had. Great sole, flexible, and durable. They've changed factories since then and they feel like they've went from Airspeed Quality to old Nike quality. It's a huge difference.

I got these a few years ago, my toe burst through the toe cap just from walking like the second day I wore them. Still skated them to shit though. Don't judge Lakai on these.

Ok, this is what I can tell you. After doing the braille test and two different shoes. The M-80 is a tad bit finer and grippyer. However I'm definitely not a fan of the small Mob cut out. I left all the pieces in but can still see it every time I look down. I think I'll stick to reg Mob for future decks since I'm weird and picky about solid black grip tape.

I actually like the M-80 mob grip and cant believe they don't simply have just solid black grip of it. I don't have to sand down my grip like i use to have to with regular mob. I as well don't cut out the logo and keep it intact so that it looks like solid black grip.

I think it's better grip as well. I know the cut out is tiny but it still bugs me.

Any of you guys wear Clarks Wallabee's or the cheaper Stinson version? I'm thinking about getting a pair cause they're super comfy and look cool. Clarks are a bit pricey so I'll probably go with the Stinson.

How's the adhesive? Recently my experience with regular mob is that it peels up in some places.

I don't think adhesive is your problem. Apply the grip properly and sand the edges and you'll be fine. I use a file no razor blade.

Tell me about it. I did get a wugenta hoodie though and it's almost like t-shirt material thin ... good for spring I guess :(
Wish I could find the thick pullover one.

I don't have an issue applying grip; the grip seems to come in half, where a grippy layer peels up and the sticky layer stays on the board.

My youth was spent skating in army pants from the local army/navy. Perfect skate pants and when you blow out the knees yo make shorts.

But dayum, son. $52?

Hell of a deal for $25, Steve!
--

Box arrived early this morning hadn't the time to fully set it up. I'm on this kick of going smaller, lighter and lower (apparently I like low trucks) of late:



8.125" Cliche R7 Brezinski (Griptape series, comes with that little strip of cliche grip on the right)
MOB M-80
5.2 Venture P-Rod V-Hollow Lights HI (never ridden ventures before and these are still lower than Indy/Krux)
Autobahn 83b UF Street slims
Andele Abec 7s
7/8" Shortys Silverados

DUDE.  This is nuts.  I just set this up last night before heading out on a trip to SoCal

Same deck, same grip, same trucks (mine are the standard V-Hollow Lights, not the P-Rods) and same wheels but white, same hardware and  Swiss 6 bearings

Dude, I'm a little weirded out right now  :o

What are the odds? I mean seriously, what are the fucking odds this would happen? Perhaps given the amount we swap out gear it was bound to happen?


What size wheels? I had to go with 52mm for that color; almost went for 50mm in your style and swapped out the Andele Swiss for the 7s last minute. ;)
