I'm browsing the Habitat website and it looks like they've used a few different molds, at least 2 PS Stix (NASA and Twin Peaks series) but mostly BBS.

BBS

8.0 x 31.625 x 14 (Suciu Topographic Series)

Looks like they gave Suciu and Frankie Spears the same 8.38 Twin Tip model

My interpretation of a Video Days era setup. Skating in the very early 90s was an interesting time, when wheels were just beginning to shrink, boards were still vaguely fishlike and vert was on the verge of not being cool anymore. I took some creative liberties with this one, I didnít make it as accurate as Iíve made my other historical recreation setups. I read a bunch of Product Patrols from around this timeframe to try to figure out the appropriate wheel sizes and hardnesses as well as board widths, I ended up going with a skinnier board than they probably would have been skating around then as I didnít feel like skating a ~10Ē




Tactics shop board 9.125 at its widest
Grind King Disruptors 6.0
NFG squares 54mm 95a that I tried to dye half black along with some 60mms but they turned out half green instead. I let them sit in the dye for a little over a week in my garage while I took a trip to the East Coast. See below

Random 1Ē hardware and 1/8Ē risers I had lying around
Jessup with an Atlas sticker under the line at the back truck. I was trying to copy Mike Carrollís grip job in the following video starting at about 40 seconds. I didnít really pull it off as well as I wanted to.

I absolutely woulda skated this set up in 1991 except for with the stage Vs that I had and loved. Looks like a World based set up to me. It's cool to know that I am not the only person trying to do period correct set ups with current gear. I picked it up after seeing some of Destroyed Wood's videos and then reading through the scans of Product Patrol and old Thrashers in general.

Haha nice. Yeah it's World based, I partially used photos of Jason Lee skating bLind boards for reference. Those Product Patrols are pretty rad, it's cool to hear Jake's commentary on the equipment changing as rapidly as it was at that time.

Those dipped wheels are really sick! What kind of dye did you use?

Thanks, I used Rit All Purpose black dye. I got 2 8 oz bottles from Target, I think they're like 5 bucks a bottle. I got an old takeout tray and poked some holes in them, then slid some chopsticks through the holes and put the wheels through the chopsticks. I then taped the wheels down so that they wouldn't touch each other or sit crooked. Then I poured the dye straight from the bottle into the container and let them sit. What I've heard is that the more correct way to do it is to dilute the dye with hot water and stir on a stove, but I wasn't sure how to do that and also get the half dye that I wanted. I'll probably do that next time, when I plan on dying the whole wheel.

Have yet to try it on wheels, but I've had really good luck getting true color on plastics and synthetic fabrics with the Rit dye that is for synthetics specifically. I've used it to dye a couple pair of pants and it has also colored the plastic buttons really well.

Also, setup looks great. Ran that shape a few months ago and it was really nice. Like a slightly larger Polar surf.

This looks awesome. I have these wheels in 52mm. Can't imagine how fast these 60mm can be. Stay safe out there.

A little something for me:

Passport 8.25
101 Radial Slim 52ís. A little slippery at the park this morning. The OG classics I was skating before didnít like getting up onto pool coping. These might not either based on shape
148 Thunder titaniums
Freshly cleaned and lubed Swiss ceramics


Something for the people at the skatepark that may not be able to afford new gear. Purging the closet. I get enough free stuff on occasion that it all evens out in the end

@rocklobster itís the start of the holiday season here. The shoes and boards were all too small for me. Sometimes itís just easier to give it away in hopes that someone that really needs it will be the one to take it

New new

Hockey 8.5 Andrew Allen
Ace 44 classic with a couple washers inside
1/8 Risers
More SML Mike Arnold wheels
LRAB's or chuck 70s

Only managed to use the ace for 10 minutes before the rain and one ride on grind. The bushings feel so soft and a bit mad compared to thunders but very fun.

Best setup I've had in a while. The 6.1s are quite surfy since I
replaced the crumbled bushings with bones medium.

Those dipped wheels are really sick! What kind of dye did you use?
[close]

Thanks, I used Rit All Purpose black dye. I got 2 8 oz bottles from Target, I think they're like 5 bucks a bottle. I got an old takeout tray and poked some holes in them, then slid some chopsticks through the holes and put the wheels through the chopsticks. I then taped the wheels down so that they wouldn't touch each other or sit crooked. Then I poured the dye straight from the bottle into the container and let them sit. What I've heard is that the more correct way to do it is to dilute the dye with hot water and stir on a stove, but I wasn't sure how to do that and also get the half dye that I wanted. I'll probably do that next time, when I plan on dying the whole wheel.

Use Rit Dyemore, itís for synthetics. 

If you want to dye the whole wheel rit has a tutorial

If you want to do half again, just mix the whole bottle with a pot of boiled water.   Then put it in your container and let it sit for a day to ensure the dye takes


Regular Rit dye does work but it takes weeks.

My second Ishod 8.5 twin tail, after Roman number I, this is IV - curious to see the difference w/ Jessup (a first for me, coming from many sheets of Miles, but I got the Jessup for free with the board so why not set it up);

Indy 149 hollows - recently a nut came loose so I might have to change them shortly, I have some forged hollows on ice but did not want to set up a Christmas complete if I can avoid it, they have such a lovely crooked groove just now;

Spitfire classics 52mm from that crazy Bonkers sale for EUR 18 w/ Bones Swiss 6 Balls;

Diamond 7/8 Allen bolts.
why come?
