I just got my 8.4 A. Allen deck with the Boys of Summer DVD, the Isle DVD, and some random patches.  Pretty stoked.  I haven't ridden a deck this wide in awhile, but I have size 11.5 feet, so it should work.

Haven't got them in the mail yet, but pretty psyched.

i've got two of these and they fit like shit. they've been sitting in a box under my bed since the day they came in the mail.

really? I like mine a lot, what colors are sitting under your bed?

the pastel green with the navy blue embroidery and the navy blue with the white embroidery

PM if you're interested in taking these off my hands...

I'm always spending wayyyy too much money on skate stuff. Shoes and clothes mostly, but I'm really stoked on my recent purchases...

White dipped


Doom Sayers Club rails that look like red curbs.


Got them in 56mm.


I got some Indy Hollows that I've had for awhile that I'm going to put on and MOB grip. Need to get some Reds bearings and some Indy soft bushings and I'm ready to build her.

Hoping I don't have to put risers on. I ride my trucks medium tightness. Maybe a bit on the loose side.

Sorry for the giant picture.
Shopping at Zumiez.....

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

Just ordered these from Tactics...don't get why the shipping is taking almost a week but when I order shoes or skate parts they usually take 3-4 days!

Anyhow do these mush out? after jumping ship from Indy to Ace...Bone's Mediums are too hard/tight now. I've never imagined it be like that after all these years.

Do the aftermarket soft bushings come close to the Ace's Stock bushing's?

why don't you just use a screwdriver to get them out? gives you the leverage you need to easily pry them out.

You don't just use your trucks, or is that what's hurting your wrists? Not being a dick but it sounds like you're just small or lacking strength.

Edit: I have one of these Reflex tools, it has a bearing press as well, maybe it'll help. I just use my trucks though.

the truck hangar usually does the job for me but have you ever tried to take bearings out/put in in some pig wheels? its a struggle

They're pretty soft. They do mush out, depending on how tight you like your trucks.

To give you an idea. I'm about 200lbs. and I ride my trucks medium/loose. I absolutely love them. They have never chipped or tore on me. They have great response. There's a white bushing that Indy makes and it's "Super Soft". Softer than the red ones. I almost got them to see if I would like them, but decided against it. Rethinking that decision now...

I couldn't give you a comparison to ACE's stock bushings. Only had one set, and it was while I had a torn ACL, so I never really skated them. They're were also back when they first came out.

Stock Ace bushings are 94/92 ish, much stiffer than the indy reds.

I've just always used the axel or the bench mounted bearing press at the shop.  Works for me.

If you use bearing spacers then that bones bearing tool doesn't work well at all.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Have you tried using a flat-head screwdriver to get your bearings out? I think it's a little easier than using your axles.

Bought a few things over the holidays:



Chocolate's Winnipeg and Toronto boards, the Green Apple X Girl board, and a Shut Tony Manfre pro board.  I don't know if I should skate the Shut board or not, opinions are welcome!  Not pictured are legit Bones Swiss which I'm excited to try out, and a pair of the original Adidas SLR shoes that I'll be skating eventually.

that's what i use...  and i use my feet for the most leverage.

left foot holds down the wheel, and the right one presses down on the flat head screwdriver i've jammed in the bearing piece stuck in the wheel.  i've done this since i'm 14 and it's never once failed me now matter what the wheel is.

riding the aesthetics nostalgia train pretty hard lately. i found this killer denim jacket/chore coat during an ebay crawl about a week ago and it showed up in the mail today, ordered a medium and a large to be safe. best skate-related purchase in a very long time.

same here, except I use the bearing presser end of a relfex skate tool. Works great, even for yanking a bearing out in a similar fashion. It's a bulky tool, but it helps.

came across this at a skateshop on my way home from out of town couldn't pass it up for $20 and its my size. The Little tag at the bottom is a little stash pocket too. Probably the best thing i will buy all year.

Bearing press has a nub that helps remove the bearing from the wheel. Not ideal but still works well.
Just Cruise is great, really digging it. Zach Chamberlin did a great job, really looking forward to his vid., Sprinkles when it comes out!

this deck has some sentimental value. saw this at the actual coexist skateshop in cincy in 2008, always wanted to buy it since they closed down years ago. finally bought one i saw on eBay.
