Lovely setup Moe. This looks pretty much exactly the kind of a setup I'd like. And I'm most likely gonna buy the Elgins at some point when they're more widely available here in Europe. I heard from the European distributor that we're even getting States in one shop in Finland. Hopefully they'll get the Elgins too.  :)
Awesome, I highly recommend States to anyone who is curious about them. Such solid shoes and dudes behind them.

Damn. Getting them from the local shop would be great. I don't need any new shoes for a while though and breaking my leg ended up costing me close to 3000 euros if not more in total, so I'm a bit strapped for cash for a while at least. But I'll definitely keep this in mind for when I feel like I can and want to spend some money on shoes again.  :) Thanks for the tip.

V-Nice set-up.
How do you like the conical bushings in comparison to stadand top cone/cylinder bottom? Also, how are the independent after market bushings? I ride my trucks on the looser side, not quite wobbly, and I've been interested in going for a softer bushing.

best urethane out there. if you look at em closely you can see there cnc cut versus using a mold like most bushings do.. i was on the bones thing for so long then rode some of the conicals in my thunders and they worked like a charm.
[close]
Beware, you get way more wheelbite on the conicals if you skate Indys. I like it that way, but many a times I've fallen from a heelflip/kickflip due to the wheelbite from the conicals,
It's from the faster turn from the bushing shape. Cylinders turn slower and feel deeper. Conical give a faster response. I've been skating my Thunders and have been trying to get into the looser truck train and I've been getting some gnarly wheel bite. Almost considering on switching back to my 139s or my Ventures
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

They're two completely different type of setups, camera shots, camera angles, and color. It's hard to compare the two when they both look so beautiful in their own unique way.

Thanks Matar! I'm a pretty big fan of football. Going to Liverpool at the end of the month!

Amazing. Not too square, not too pointy. Nose is 7, tail is 6.6. Great shape.

Trust me I tried but I live in the U.K. and I couldn't find any with a hanger wide enough for this deck. I'm meeting a Slap pal in an hour or so to have my first roll back in time.

Skated it tonight and it was super fun. The shape feels like an 8.25 or even slightly smaller because of the taper. The spot was smooth so the smaller wheels weren't a problem but your timing on Ollie's and flip tricks take a little adjustment. It takes a few minutes but there is no lack of pop. Grinding is weird at first because you don't really lock in with wide hangers and tiny wheels but you get used to it and it's damn fun.  I like this shape so much I think I'm going to get another and set it up as my regular set up.

I've heard of guys re drilling boards, couldn't tell you how well it worked. But as long as you line up all your holes it shouldnt be too difficult

i hate dumbass responses like this .. i was just thinking how everyone was talking shit on a prime setup i posted and for good reason because it was an 8.25 x 32 with a 14.75 wheelbase and i absolutely hated it at first but got used to it and had fun with it .. but it had me thinking what if i just moved my trucks down .. i didn't end up doing it but had me thinking maybe someone out there has tinkered around with this kind of issue

yeah if I'm not feeling the wheelbase I re-drill it if I feel like it. It probably seems a lot harder than it actually is. I just line it up with a set of base plates to make sure it's perfect. You'd have to be blind or astonishingly bad with a drill to fuck it up.
