Hey anyone on here who currently or use to religiously ride Indy stage 10 ? Specifically 149 ?

What's your feedback on them compared to stage 11 besides 11 being taller and sharper ?

Does anyone prefer 10 over 11 like rowley strictly rides his stage 7 or 9 or whatever stage it was ?
yes

Tried it, Didn't work like it use to.

I learned how to turn on my board instead of tic tacking and gained more style and control moving up sizes and trying trucks that could actually turn haha

The stock white bushings feel super loose until you break them in. Last time I got a new set of thunders I was getting crazy wheelbite with 53mm wheels for the first few weeks.


See I don't get this.  Every set of trucks I've ever had, I've hated the fucking stock bushings and always just use bones but even fresh these white Thunder bushings feel like a million bucks!


It feels turny but stable.


I'll compare THunders and Indys.


 If you were carve a down a sidewalk with Indys it'd be like this

But with Thunders it's like

Like Indys are more an S shape and feel smoother but fairly shallow where as these Thunders are more of a zig zag. They have a snappier/quicker response but don't feel like  loose truck at speed/going striaght.

exactly.

I'm getting a real big urge to switch to thunder from indy. The only thing thats stopping me is this question: is running 54mm without risers even possible without riding super tight? I'd hate to go down in wheel size, but the pull is strong.

I like almost everything about indy, the turn, the.. Maybe just the turn actually. The delayed pop has been messing with my head lately, I keep telling myself I'm just being picky.. But at the same time I need all the advantages I can get (since I suck). I love the pop of thunders, and the longer wheelbase, but the height worries me, the turn I think I could get used to.

I think this depends on truck and deck width. The wider you go the more chance you'll need risers... the law of moments....

I'd be riding 149's (with 8.38 to 8.5), I'm thinking I'll probably have to go down to 53mm, but I definitely don't want to.

Yeah, you might need risers depending on how much wheel bite you can handle. I'm currently on loose ace 44s with 54mm wheels on an 8.6", no risers and getting some significant wheel bite but enjoying the challenge of trying to land tricks cleaner...

Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

I've ridden 54s with team plates, it was a struggle as I ride loose 53 seem like the max unless you ride super tight or use risers.

After much debate I decided to go home to Indy. I've missed the turning for one (and had they stayed at stage vii I would have never changed!). Anyway I kept reading that the stage xi used stage bio geometry and I can't resist. I'm still skating skinny boards though. I may inch myself back up to 8 but I just want to turn again first. Not that ventures don't turn, just not like indy

you would think that with all the stage 7 love that indy would just re-release them and cash fat checks

I think it's a lot of work to be running multiple designs......sure Indy makes more off of tshirts than trucks....

Indy turning radius is hard to live without.....

"3-in-1 HYBRID board". So much mystery and wonder in such a short sentence. Eat your heart out, not-Hemingway. What could that even mean?

Decided to check the walmart site to see why it was 3 in 1 and it's never explained. Then I went to the Darkstar boards and realized someone should swipe Decenzo from Darkstar. The man deserves better.

It is only a collab with vision. Like the emericaXindependent collab for the Reynolds vulc. Sometimes they make the trucks, sometimes they make the shoes.

Ahaha your just gonna leak a number like that,

I just know from emailing and reading N.L. Post that he is working on a new Indy mid of some sorts but no idea if it's a new stage or just a mid so you now have Indys in all options(low, mid, and high) to kill the truck market, with only thunder and venture standing after that cause ermico and all

All I know Is I want a mid height Indy 144, perfect clearance and amount of lower center of gravity with turn perfect for 8.25
yes

Nah, forged baseplates are strong but feel so flimsy and thin so I like my trucks all classic gravity cast

Hey anyone who owns thunder 148's or Indy 144s are they much better than running 149 on an 8.25 ?

I'm running 149 Indys on my 8.25 and it's good and I love it but would the smallest size change make a difference in board feel and flip?
yes

went from 149 thunders on a 8.25 to the 148s on the same deck and its way more stable for flip tricks!
