Nice setup!

PS To make your image larger in a post, find the Embed Codes for your image and select either Full Image BBCode or BBCode Full (they're the same thing just with different names btw).

It should be listed somewhere under your image on the ImgBB site.

Just copy and paste that into your post and preview it first, it should show up at least as large as my post images.

Hope that helps!

Thank you. I love the Knicks and absolutely adore Walt Frazier. He and Mike Breen are the best announcing tandem.  Walt's voice is an antidepressant in and of itself.

I bet you'll be stylin' and profilin' on that setup. And wheelin' and dealin'. And movin' and groovin'.

After quite a while on the Quasi 8.375 twin, I picked up an 8.38 shop blank twin from First Skateshop. This is an entirely different beast than the Quasi even if the measurements are somehow similar: Length and width are identical, wheelbase on the shop blank a hair wider. However, and as you can see, the kicks on the shop blank are much wider/squarer than the Quasi. As a matter of fact this shop blank reminds me of the Ishod 8.5 twin a lot. It could actually be labelled twin nose. If that's your jam you might like it. Further, the concave (not the kicks) seems quite steep. I only had one sesh and will have to explore further.

Here's the specs:

8.38 twin blank from First Skateshop
Miles
Indy Forged Hollows 144 stock
Spitfire classics used to be 52mm but now a bit smaller
Swiss Super Six (or whatever they call them)
First Aid 1 inch Allen bolts
why come?

Life is too short to be angry at the Shrimp Blunt intro

Hkd 5s are surprisingly  good for a cheap bearing. I had a set setting in a box for years until i Finally threw them in a cruiser and they were excellent

gnar for the effort in detail, looks very cool!

And spending that time/ caring about a board is always cool in my book
