    Originally the indy 169 had a 9.5 inch axle and the 159 had the 9 inch.  Now the 169s indy produces are only 9 inches wide.  215's are fuckin useless so if you want a wide truck the biggest is the 9 which is wack for a full sized 10 inch board.  ACE 66's are 9.5 but they bend.  Indy if you're out there make a real 169 thank you.

i thought stage 11 169s are 9.125

  Yah I know that but felt that 0.125 wasn't worth mentioning, it's only 1/5 of the way to 9.5.   Ace 66s are 9.5 like old 169s but I'm hard pressed to buy those again cause they bend.  It was nicer to have that width tho.  -perfect chill.

^weird fact; I heard lance rides 139's or 49's with that model and that he likes the overhang. 

I think he skates a 9 inch vato with 149s and conical fulls. I could be wrong, I just noticed the same reoccurring setup in chronicles 3

Now I want to try this and pick up some fresh blazers

you can never go wrong with blazers
They look good and skate good. I had to swap insoles for some FP Gamechangers and run a pair for work that 6+ months in are barely having any issues. I feel like you may not even need laces sometimes. Just a good shoe overall.

I rode a lot of creature 9" popcicle boards for a few years and I still have a 10" shaped creature deck I like to screw around on but lately I've been riding antio hero 9" popcicles and krooked 8.75 full shape popcicles. The creatures have a steeper nose and tail and more concave but I like the more mellow dlx shapes.

Just doing some research... anybody have the Anti Hero Cardiel football deck?  The 9.18? 

How do you like it?  Do you use Indy 159's or 169's for it?

I had one when it first came out a few years ago with the Zapatista on it, I was running 159s or ace 55s... BMC probably remembers better than I do.


Actually I started on 159s but went with 55s in the end on it. It was a comfortable ride, just kind of long.

I never thought I'd ride anything with 215s, but all those videos of gonz messing around on them finally got to me.. Now these are on their way:
9.96

Going bigger has been a slippery slope for me.  I do the same 6-7 tricks on any setup but they all feel better on bigger boards.  Once I go up, I just can't size back down.  Right now I'm on a 10.34 Winkowski with Ace 55's and I'm having a blast on it

I say just do it! (if you've got some extra cash). I've gotten to the point now where all I think about with my set ups is how fun they'll be to skate. I'm not suddenly gonna be able to 360 flip to blunt just because I'm riding a 8.5 instead of an 8.38 lol.

I have an 8.0 inch setup that's super fun even though its way too short for me. My 8.62 that's the "right" size gets boring.

I ordered this same deck to ride some new Gonz 215s I've had sitting around just last week; looking forward to brown santa delivery tomorrow!

I finally got around to skating the Pinkish Baker thatís 9 in wide. I think the WB is like 14.4 so it doesnít skate too long. Doesnít have much taper at all, The nose is super full, and the tail is squared and pretty big as well. Not as big as the BA shape but close. I really like it and would recommend it for anyone who wants a big setup but likes shorter WBs. Iím using 159 Indy TiTs and threw my wayward 52 slims on it.
Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

I'm contemplating buying the BA 9.25 shape. Should I get 159's or 169's for it? Any suggestions?  :)

id go 169, but I cant remember if that shape tapers at the back truck enough for some hot rodding to occur. either way, i guess im just biased. i own both 159 and 169, but havent skated the 59's as much.

Either will work but BA and @tangar both ride 159's on it so that's good enough for me

Yea I like the 159 Titaniums on it. Having such a big board be so light is awesome. My other setup has 149s so it doesnít feel too weird going back and forth.
