- Baker 8.475; sanded off the original graphic cuz I wanted to do a custom stencil spray paint graphic, but it came out looking pretty bad so I ended up sanding that off too and now I just have a plain ol blank board. Trying to decide what I want to put on there or if I should just rock it blank, for now itís blank. Coated with a couple coats of cheap generic clear spray paint from the hardware store.
- Venture 5.8s with Indy barrel bottom aftermarket bushings
- spitfire 54mm F4 99As
- random assortment of bearings from like five different brands probably, shields off.
- random assortment of 1 inch allen hardware
Jessup grip
So clean..a nice venture sticker and call it good.  :)

I actually bought the Hjalte Surf Shape, but gifted it to my gf, as it seemed a bit more nimble than I was looking for in this setup.  Wanted more surface area...

Polar Oski P9
Ace V2 44's
F4 Conical Full 56's
Bones Big Balls Reds
Real Universal 1/8 Risers
Diamond Hardware

I set this up as my shitty weather cruiser, as I'm in MI and it almost hit 50 degrees today.

There is nothing finer than raw/silver trucks, white wheels, and blank, natural woodgrain.

Label Kills! Bought this Black Label a little while ago and after some madness of an 8.5 Real FULL SE with a tail that was not tall/long enough and an 8.375 $lave (was warped and I didn't know until trucks were on it) that felt too short... I finally got back to homeostasis with my skateboard...  ;D

I am finally confident my ideal specs for width/length/WB are:
8.5" (an occasional 8.6 or 8.4 that have similar measurements elsewhere are also nice)
32.25 - 32.5
14.5 (maybe 14.38 on some boards)

8.5" Black Label 'Chris Troy' (14.5 x 32.38)
Mob Grip
149 Indys (standard hangar with a forged hollow baseplate)
54mm Spitfire F4 Conical Full - about 53mm now I think?
Bones Reds
7/8" Black & Silver Indy Phillips hardware




[close]

That looks really sick. Love the Label but all their decks are a bit too long for me personally.
Is there a reason you use a Standard hanger on the forged 149s? Are there advantages for it? Thinking about doing the same
[close]

Thank you! I'm digging Label right now.  This one feels good after a few sessions already. I have explosive pop doing switch and nollie tricks so I'm stoked on that, just gotta control it now  8)

A year and a half ago I bought 149 Standards and that's what the hangar is. Instead of setting up another pair of trucks, I chose to just swap base plates from the set I would skate next (in the next 7 or so months).
After a bit of time I noticed how heavy and somewhat tiring Standards were on longer sessions. Since then I bought 149 Forged Hollow and some Hollow Standards because I was running Forged Hollow before the Standards. I thought I'd get close to what I had before.

In short, I wanted to shave weight and also have the options to mix and match for certain wheels/board height. I think it works great since it's not super light and it's not super hefty either.

That makes actually a lot of sense. Might try standard hanger on forged plates to see if my flips feel more controlled.
The height should be the same as usual forged hollows/titaniums right?

I notice my flips working pretty well, better than what I had before, so I think there's some validity to my madness haha. It's more manageable since I like to get tech but also skate transition.
If you have forged/titaniums, the height is 53.5mm if I'm not mistaken. If you run standard or standard hollow, it's 55mm. So if you throw a Standard hangar on a Forged/Titanium baseplate, you should get the 53.5mm height.

It should give a bit more weight lower to the ground, so maybe more stability? Not sure tho ^^
Both my hollow hangars showing the axles for a few months now, but I will ride them til they fall apart. Whenever that will be, never had trucks that long before.

Scumco Kyle Nicholson 8.25" x 31.6" 14.25" wb
Venture 5.6 hollow
54mm Portland wheel Co conicals
Bop Shopô grip
Bop Shopô hardware

Been waiting for the new PS Stix Scumco line since last summer and they did not disappoint. Some killer graphics as usual and really nice PS shapes from the 5 I've acquired thus far. Decided to try this one first because I haven't skated a Nicholson deck in ages (and he's so good... Criminally underrated).

This one is your standard PS fare - full shape with very little taper, mild concave, nice wide squareish-round kicks, a mellow tail that should be very snappy and responsive on a mid height truck like venture hollows. Waiting for the sun to dry up some of the puddles outside but just messing around in the basement this deck feels great. So stoked these are available again.

Your board gripping has improved drastically since i've seen the first of your +/- 155 board setups in the last 2 years BFRD. Your best one yet :)

Shape looks good, enjoy.

After some sweet sales I ended up with a whole Christmas complete.

AH 8.5 x 31.8 14.25 wb
Venture 5.6 v hollow with 3 washers on the inside and ace low bushings
F4 52mm tablets
Reds
Jessup


Havenít done a proper session or anything, but so far Iím hating the feel of this setup from just skating around in the street a little bit. Definitely lots of different parts than what Iím used to so itís more of an experiment board, but it might be a failed experiment. I have some of the venture wooden risers that I will probably try out on the deck and I might test out the stock venture bushings because the ace have just been feeling really strange so far. Hopefully Iíll get used to it otherwise Iíll just have mark this off as not my style setup.

DOA square shape 8.25
Theeve csx v3, 5.25
F4, 54mm, 97a classics
Olympia bearings

The Theeves feel a bit small for this set up (Iím moving back up after skating 8í pops for a while) but not unmanageable.

The 97a F4ís are broken in now and they are easily my favorite wheels. A little softer than 99ís (just enough to take some rattle off on medium crust) slide nice enough and Iím liking the classic shape a lot (usually ride conical full)

Are the F4 97a noticeably more grippy on slippery stuff? I'm debating whether to try them or wait to see if NFG does another run of the 95a wheels.

I would skate 101a on everything if they gripped better, a smoother ride is not important to me, but the slippyness puts me on my back more than I'd like.

Yeah, they do grip a little better than 99/101a on stuff thatís usually slippery for me, though I havenít tried them on any indoor surfaces.

Iím curious about those NFGís too, though mostly to see how they feel on crusty streets. I like their normal formula a lot for pushing around but I wish the slide was better.

hopefully its my last week of rehabbing my knee, decided to throw this together after testing my new surf stripe method




scumco (silver spoon?) 8.5/31.75/14.0
venture 5.6 hollow w/riptides +flat washers+indy 78a
f4 classics 55mm 99a
swiss super 6
bronze allen
mob
sb dunk lows/adidas tyshawns

actually liking bigger wheels now that im off thunders. swiss 6 really shine with wheels that can carry speed, they didnt feel much different than reds in 50mm wheels (surprise surprise). 58mm conical fulls are up next when i can find a set, any leads are more than welcome.

This setup is the business.  Iíve got a set of Tensor 5.0ís collecting dust on a shelf in my garage and Iíve been thinking about grabbing one of these 7.8Ē Classic Eagles for them.  Your setup has convinced me to go ahead and do that.  Too sick.

Can we get a top view?

Scumco Kyle Nicholson 8.25" x 31.6" 14.25" wb
Venture 5.6 hollow
54mm Portland wheel Co conicals
Bop Shopô grip
Bop Shopô hardware

Been waiting for the new PS Stix Scumco line since last summer and they did not disappoint. Some killer graphics as usual and really nice PS shapes from the 5 I've acquired thus far. Decided to try this one first because I haven't skated a Nicholson deck in ages (and he's so good... Criminally underrated).

This one is your standard PS fare - full shape with very little taper, mild concave, nice wide squareish-round kicks, a mellow tail that should be very snappy and responsive on a mid height truck like venture hollows. Waiting for the sun to dry up some of the puddles outside but just messing around in the basement this deck feels great. So stoked these are available again.

Those wheels look sick. They look wider than Spitfire conical fulls. Making me want to step it up to 54s on my next setup
