... cause I feel you can skate stock bushings on any trucks with any tightness it's just aftermarkets are more suited for your preference is all(I like tighter trucks so harder duro is gonna work better than having a medium and cranking it ...

This is from Andrew Reynolds' Instagram feed recently



Does this mean that reynolds is potentially cranking?
Isn's Reynolds known for having super tight trucks?

I would give you my white bushings, but I need to buy harder ones first.

Life is Hard after riding Ace 44s and having to revert back to indys. Any suggestions for bushings on indy 149s? I tried aftermarket indys, but they kinda sucked or I just wasn't patient enough. Bones mediums turn nice, but they crumble in a week or so (I weight close to 220lbs/100kg)...

Been looking for an alternative to the bones hardcore mediums for awhile now. They feel perfect without the washer but replacing bushing every few weeks is annoying as shit. Been wanting to try some venoms but havent gone for it yet. Im afraid of change   :-\ Anyone here skate venoms or anything else? loose truck ppl help me

Yo, new to the forum, because of some issues with my Krupp K4's.

Bought them like 1 1/2 years ago and the pivot cups are so worn out that I cannot even call them loose anymore. Right now they just wobble uncontrollably.

Problem is, that I cannot find any fitting pivots for the trucks, as most cups are either too bright or too small. Talked with a few friends and some of them seemed to have the same problem back when they rode krux. I hate changing my trucks, money wise and because I dislike riding new trucks. Anybody has a brand or whatsoever for me that fits Krux K4's?

Thanks in advance!



ALSO: Any advices for bushings? Used to ride bones bushings mediums, the yellow ones, but they seem to get cheaper and cheaper. Not buying another pair that lasts not longer than a month.

Or pick up bones hards if you are shredding mediums in under a week

^Homie who rides for Antiz got few sets of those Antiz x Destructo trucks couple of years ago, don't know what model those were. What I remember trying those out they felt like lower indys, with little less turn.

Has anyone had experience with destructos?

I have, some years ago. I had multiple destructos as this was the only option available locally but at that time  (around 2007) I was into skating smaller decks/trucks. I had no issues, the axle wouldn't slip much and when I had ground enough metal off they would snap on the hanger. No bells and whistles, nothing amazing turn-wise. No problems either. The slipping axle thing is a major let down by humanity. We can fly to the moon but the major truck companies produce trucks with slipping axles. In the last 2 years I have gone through 3 sets of thunders hollow lights that all had axle slip from the first day skating flat, one set of thunders lights that had axle slip 3 sessions in and a hand me down set of royals that were the worst trucks I ever had (in every aspect) and also had major axle slip. With the destructos the axle slip was not ever increasing. The axle would slip to an extent and then it would just keep slipping between that margin. It seems that all I rant over is how I don't like axle slip but I just wanted to point out that a shitty and simple truck can be ok as long as it does not have devastating flaws.

Very very interesting...

Thanks for the feedback guys cause I been thinking to try a set but need to make some money first, the struggle now is deciding whether to get the 8" or 8.25", flipability or stability

I'm gonna post my almost unused ace 44 raw with the .38 nuts in classified if anyone's interested so I can get closer to getting those destructos haha

I haven't grinded on them and they're almost brand new I just couldn't get use to the height and Geo so they've been laying around the last 4 months I've had them

Tried a set of the softs. Way too hard for me. Going to see about sanding them down a bit.

Randomly stumbled across this image tonight.

Maybe this is the hot setup for Thunders.

Did anybody actually see the bottom of Tiago Lemos' board?
