Grimple Peter Hewitt 8.75 x 31.75 x 14.25
Venture Hollow Forged 6.1
Spitfire F4 Conical 54mm/99d
Bronson G3 bearings
Spa Gear Hardware
Deli Pepper grip
NB# Tiago 1010

Nearly a Christmas complete except the used wheels and bearings I had in a drawer. Riding Ventures unlocked some interesting wheelbase options for me, too hard to pass this one up at the local (remote) shop.

this would've been perfect without ventures

Ventures are great
black wheels with a brown stain should NBD

LOL. I have these same wheels in natural/white but thought the black ones looked better. I almost mixed them but seemed like a for sure should NBD. Dunno, there's a lot of black with brown going on in AH vids, ha.

I love Ventures, and that set up looks great to me. Black wheels look good on any kind of deck imo.

Venture 5.8 really are the best trucks, I will never not be impressed by the wide variety of deck sizes that they work with. Magic trucks!

Haven't really put it through it's paces yet, Lou.  initial reaction is it's a bit too mellow concave compared to what I usually like but I'll give it time.  Quality and finish is great.  Grabbed a few when he posted them at $20 per deck so at that price how can ya go wrong?


Grip look like a ball sack during winter time.
Very fitting with the temps we've been having the past few weeks.

Yeah it's a shame they changed the design.

Get hungry on it!
