5.6 lows will never happen, just like the return of Radial Slims, but I appreciate y'all keepin the fight alive. 🙏

Man, what a combo that would be.

WTF DLX

5.6 / 5.8 LO + Radial Slims would be a beautiful combo, that would end that side of my madness for sure!

SW has the 'loose edition' with the current sale

FWIW I ran Ace bottoms with the LOW hard top and it was perfect on ventures.

Are that many people riding the loose kit? Other than Slap I have never seen any in the wild but then again SD people are always amazed I'm on Ventures in the first place.

i mean this is just a bushing switch, for wider lows they would have to get new molds and shit

Rhino lives here so it's basically:

Indy: 80%
Ace: 10%
Thunder: 5%

And then everything else here or there.

He's definitely showed up to parks and offered people not riding Indy's a free set and hooks up a lot of younger kids that show potential, older dudes that aren't pro but rip, and friends of the above.

They were through the same distro, but not sure now.

Any which way, I feel like the percentage of skaters on that brand are less than .1% so even though at peak there was a fair bit more interest than there is now (I might be being generous there) but it seemed like there were still not that many people riding them apart from those who got them from team packages and connections and the like.

Not hating, but just making observations.

Either way, the big four are the big four for a reason - they do the job and do it well.


As for seeing people riding those green bushings, not many at all from what I have seen, but the kids do benefit from them the most - not having to modify them, can just put them in and away they go.


I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Just got some venture 6.1s with the cast baseplate to try, haven't ridden ventures in about a decade and have been floating between Indy and Ace and most recently was enjoying the tensor ATG. I wanted something with an 8.75 axel to slap on my new quasi 8.625, and holy shit the wheel bite on these is insane. I'm pretty having at around 105kg and I've tried a few different bushing combos but man these wheel bite fast, anyone else experience this? Always read that venture were good for wheel bite.

I hover at around 90kg and have always found the blue Indy aftermarketís great in my 6.1s. Maybe try the black Indy ones or potentially where you are some deluxe tack and supply black ones.

I've tried the black Indy bushings and purple tack and supply, ones both didn't work. I'm running 53mm bones v5 shape and it just feels like theres almost no room between start of turn and then wheelbite. The only way I can get them half decent is with an ace hard bushing board side and a bones hard road side, but I've never enjoyed the way bones bushings feel. I probably just need to lose some weight.

Sounds like you need:

Yellow Indys @96a if the 94a blks don't work....
Or go white 98a/blk 100s doh dohs....
....or 100a Mini Logos (underrated bushings cuz ML).

Dropping a few pounds does help. I'm cutting and already down 5lbs at around 193 but bumped to indy blacks from indy blue (nut flush/149s).

I found that after riding Ventures, I wanted all my trucks to be tight and turn less :P Royals (with ACE hards) might as well be ACEs for me now...Even Indys with blks I had to crank down from nut flush to get where I wanted them.

Switch back to (149) Ventures and doing fine.

I got u bro. Iím a chonker myself. Iím down to 106, started the year at 125.

Iíve been fucking with bushings like you wonít believe.

Was given some shitty trucks by our janitor, and they had this slightly cuppier cupped washer. That goes snugly up the side of the bottom bushing.
This really stiffens up a bushing. It compresses more progressively as you get near the end of the turning action as bushing has fewer places to expand.

Iíve ditched my 169s (left) but I put in stock bushings and washers beforehand. Now Iím on 159 forged hollow and 56mm. I run them tight af. Maybe Iíll add a skinny riser. The black washer, with the mini logo 100a, and a bones hard on top really works. The mini logos are plenty good, and the bones gives it that snap back to center.

I believe thereís a longboard brand called Caliber that makes washers that looks similar. Beware that they come in different sizes.

Im too dumb to figure out how to make this drawing my profile pic.

I had some old super cupped washers laying around and I've chucked them in and your right, it's a massive improvement. Cheers for the tip.

Cuppier cupped washers do wonders for wheelbite.

The nice thing about Ventures is even when you get wheelbite you can often ride it out. I dunno how the geo works for it but I feel it slow me a bit and then rebound out rather than just get stopped dead in my tracks.

Yeah, my wheelbite marks are only one specific spot with Ventures. Indys and especially Ace give you those long dragging wheelbite grooves.

If ya toss a lil wax on that one wheelbite spot with Ventures, it doesn't seem to stop you so harshly.

gonna switch back to barrel bottoms asap
bones hards were good for a few sessions but got mushy
and with radial fulls, the wheelbite gets annoying

anyone try 98a white doh dohs or 100a mini logo bushings?
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

Hey I found some extra bushings. I noticed that there's a big colour differentiation between the sf and the mexico pours.

The dark one is from right when COVID hit. The light are the current. As seen on my 6.1s. also either the kingpin is longer in 6.1s and 5.8s or the bushings are softer now.

I prefer the current clear style for sure

I just started a new set of 6.1s on an 8.75 (my first 8.75) and put the black aftermarket Indy bushings in. Very nice and already feel broken in. Iím a heavier dude thoÖ234lbs.

I've skated 5.2 Highs on forged plates mostly, but have spent a good amount of time on 5.2 Low cast. Switched back and forth twice I think.

Same truck and geo, just the height difference. That translates to higher effort, higher yield with the highs, and snappier, 'easier' pop on the lows FOR ME.

I like em both. If I did a lot of smith grinds and always wanted the 'best' pop, I'd choose the highs.

So far I've settled on the 5.2 forged highs on mellower boards and the 5.2 low cast on steeper boards.

Went back and forth on both.
Same as you, great pop on High and kingpin clearance on forged and they skated really good.

smoother pinch on crooks and balance 5.2 lows on cast plates but also skated really good. Lows look better though, you don't get the big ass gap between your wheels and deck when you ride smaller wheels lol

I can do everything on both though. I mostly skate ledges and flat though. Occasionally a gap.

This guy knows,
Iím on my first set of 5.2 highs (forged plates), rode the lows last year, y most recently on thunder 147. Iím skating the highs on a mini logo, so really mellow. The pop angle is 33 degrees.
I love this setup so far. Try it out.
The post above is pretty much my experience as well.

Hey I found some extra bushings. I noticed that there's a big colour differentiation between the sf and the mexico pours.

The dark one is from right when COVID hit. The light are the current. As seen on my 6.1s. also either the kingpin is longer in 6.1s and 5.8s or the bushings are softer now.

I prefer the current clear style for sure

how you liking the 6.1s?


They're killer. The only downside is they're the same size as my double sided curb. With 58mm wheels you can't unlock. You just kinda go from 50 to NG and stop.

If I throw a wilder wheel on problem solved I assume. Was the same with the 5.8 when riding the 58mm Dragons.

I switched back to ogs and I was able to be on top again.

I got a new curb tho so it's fine.

Also I might order wheels tomorrow. I been looking. I can't wait till spring

Venture Lo are super fun for slappies. I had an 8" deck with them earlier this year and some 51 classics and was surprised at how fucking easy most slappy tricks were.

I enjoyed the snap at first but like other posters said the overall pop can be a bit lower than the highs. If you can adjust to the timing of the highs they will reward you but it can be frustrating if you're not used to the heft.

I agree low trucks are sick for slappies. Maybe that's why a lot of ogs swear by tracker.
