I was told they jack the prices up on there so people will support a shop before buying direct.

I've heard that as well, if true good on them. I've only purchased from NHS when I can't find a specific deck anywhere else.

I'm kind of eyeing those Hollow Kremers...makes you wonder why they didn't bother making raws in other options first, but it might depend on what is in the queue at the time, e.g., those logo/black Tis and the Kremers.

Im talking about bulk as in size. its not about the weight but the length of the axle. i wouldn't even want to set up 149s again at this point

I've been riding a pair of Theeve ti 8.18" on both an 8.25" and 8.38" (the 8.38 tapers enough so its not magic caroet) - I set up another 8.25" with some 149s and it seemed, felt awkward, which is odd given that combo is all I skated for years and years. Guess I just got used to the 8.25" ish width.

Let's go Thunder 148s ;)

Yeah, i'm not feeling the price or the colorway.  I just figure once I see them pop up on there that it's a good indicator they'll be available elsewhere soon.

However, I too am really wanting some Thunder 148s!  I'll be an Indy guy though until Thunder gets that worked out.

Has anyone set them up on an 8.38 or bigger?
Sorry if I'm depressing snickers/ice nine/whoever.  We can't all be tatted up, broad-slaying, OC, cool guys.

Why? Because you miss the magic carpet feel of 139's on an 8.25?

I've been rocking a set of the 144 Kremer hollows/cast plates since they released, love'em. Usually I'm a weight whore and get Ti but I really wanted regular plates.

Set them up on and 8.25" for a week, then fooled around on an 8.38 (blood wizard -  and while still 'full' it narrows juuuust after the trucks so it fits great. I'd wager 8.125" decks would work fine as well (having ridden ace 44s on one).

Interestingly enough, the 144s at 55mm don't feel at all tippy like the 8'24" Krux do. Go figure.

The news of the "in-between" truck is great... I've only got two sets of stage 10s left on ice until I have to try and get used to the stage 11 skyscrapers. I think the difference is ridiculously small, like 53mm to 55mm, but it feels SO much different. Stage 10 is a perfect truck in my eyes... or... maybe it isn't, but it's what I'm used to. Kind of the same thing haha, you can't ask a man to change trucks after so many years. Decks and wheels are fun to experiment with, but trucks?!
