Single Setup Slappers
« on: April 22, 2021, 05:24:19 AM »
lots of us on the shoes & gear board end up with a whole bunch of setups. i'd like to hear from pals that run only one at a time.

so, who amongst us is using one setup? and if so, what parts did you choose?

especially interested if you're using it as an ATV, from slappies to bowl riding. having a beer cruiser on the side won't count against you.

My one and only:
Blood wizard rennie 8.5x31.7x14.25
Ace 44 classic
Olympia ceramics
Spitfire f4 52 tablets




I debate on setting up a second setup with extra parts one park one street but I feel Iíll always be re adjusting to each board.

I've essentially ridden one setup for 15 years: 8" board, long wheelbase, Venture 5.2 Highs, 54-55mm wheels.

The other day a friend gave me his 8.5 so I might be out of the one setup club.

Iíve always only had 1 board. I dont really skate transition or branch out too much of what I usually skate, which is street and park, so I like to keep it consistent tbh.
This is about to change cause I just got a cruiser on the way for my birthday (but you said it doesnít count).

So Iíve been fucking with this setup for a while:
8.25 deck (currently a Girl slick, 14Ē wheelbase)
indy 144 forged hollow (stock)
53mm wheels (on some Bones V1 Easy streets)
Bones Swiss (shieldless)
Mob grip (cause I donít change boards that often and
I donít care about my shoes, grip gotta last tho). 
Allen bolts (been rocking bronze lately, 1Ē I think)

I also usually skate 1 pair of shoes at the time,
I donít like to have a rotation of shoes when skating altho I have loads of pairs...
Currently skating some adidas Stan Smiths in full grain leather.

I think thatís it...

I am also a one set up one pair of shoes guy and always dread to change well worn in items out of fear I will not be able to skate as well with the new ones as with the previous ones or it will take a long time to adapt. The nightmare scenario is to change deck and shoes simultaneously.

Does switching out wheels still count?

I just set up a second set-up last night, but weíll see if it gets used. I had a bunch of gear and multiple set-ups this time last year but it all ended up in a box at the park around Christmas.

Last night I had too much caffeine and disassembled my other 3 set ups and just left them as parts in my closet. Gonna just run my current polar with thunders and replace parts as needed with the spare. Just looking at the other set ups I barely skate makes me anxious for some reason.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Same.

I keep one main setup going. I do get bouts of madness and swap stuff out just to try it, but I always come back to:

F4 99s. Prefer a square profile (tablets/conical/etc), but will skate classics. I used to like small wheels but over the past year I moved up to like 54-56mm so they'll last longer. I started running a 1/8" riser too.
Ace trucks. Tired to go back to Venture a few times out of nostalgia but I always end up with Aces.
Boards are a little more varied, 8.5"+ pop or 9"+ shaped. I'm not good enough for WB to matter that much but if push comes to shove I like 14.5"+. Overall length is more important, I like 32"+. Right now I only have shaped boards on deck, but I'd be open to a bigger pop down the line.

Currently running an Antihero Cardiel 9.18 football with Ace AF1 77s, 1/8 risers, and 54mm 99 F4 tablets.

I skate mostly curbs, with some flatground thrown in the mix. I need a setup that is good for slappies, power slides, and all the other non-tricks that I like to do. I think any time I've varied from the stuff above, it has been because I was trying to skate a way that isn't really me.

I have a cruiser, but it is basically the same shit but with keyframes instead of spits.


I know we aren't madness shaming in the gear section, come on were better than this.

1 board, but loads of parts for spares if I wanted to. My tiny apartment doesn't afford me that luxury. That said I've become good and finding spots to stuff gear into every available space around the house.

Plus I feel bad enough not riding a deck down till the tail is completely razor'ed and I will Shoe Goo my shoes until I wear a hole in the sole.

I only have one set up and have only ever had one (aside from a cruiser). I run:

8.5 board 14.25wb, usually clutch square or quasi. Just ordered some FA/Hockey havenít skated one since they switched from PS

Venture 5.8hi standards, stock. I put an inverted kingpin on my current set up, donít think Iíll do it again.

Spitfire formula 4. Been on 53mm 99a lock ins for the last year, but I also like classics and tablets.

Bones Swiss, shields on.

7/8Ē Allen hardware, ideally with 1 different color indicator bolt.

Plain black Jessup  grip

I also only run one pair of shoes, didnít realize people ran rotations, thatís wild to me. Aside from decks, I hate new gear and try to stick with the same stuff as long as possible. Iím pretty simple, Iíve skated the same size for over 10 years (although I change shape every few years). I have 10 pairs of the same shoe and buy 5 boards at a time. I know what I like and donít deviate much, if thereís an issue with my skating I try to look inward, and not blame the board. Although I been spending too much time on slap and have contemplated gear changes here and there, but always end up just staying with what I got.

55mm F4 99a Tablets.
Bones Swiss 6ball.

Only one setup, but i have two of it. One at my place and one at my girlfriends place.

Real Ishod 8.25 twin tail
Thunder 148 (titaniums on one, hollow lights on the other. No difference really)
Spitfire tablets 53mm 99a

8.5 Baker (or anything mellow)
Venture 5.8
Then I switch out wheels. For fucking around, I like spitfires, and due to covid I just take what I can get. Currently thatís some 53 mm 101a tablets.
For cruising, I got some OJ mini juice 55 mm wheels, I think theyíre 78a. Iíve also tried some acid chemical co 87a skaterade wheels that are really fun for skating crust, but not as good at covering long distances as the OJs.
Iíve got two sets of Swiss that I clean as needed, and I switch wheels out as needed. Iíve mostly gotten around by skating since covid and this setup has worked pretty well. It requires a bag, a tool, and it helps to bring some paper towels. I also have to replace axle nuts more frequently than I used to.
If you can't handle me at my Marc Johnson, you don't deserve me at my Bobby Puleo.

Normally I only ever have one cuz I like being able to skate flat or manual pads just while rolling around.

Lately it's been a Generator 8.25x31.8x14.25 (Passport, Carpet, Sci-Fi Fantasy all use it), Thunder 148 Team Hollow Plates and ti lite hangers w/stock bushings, 52mm F4 classic 99a, Quantum Atoms.  Really nothing too fancy. If I were still commuting a lot I might rock 53s instead or 52 conicals. If I have one setup my main goal is for it to feel familiar and not index too strongly to any specific use. When I had wider boards I didn't like flip tricks as much, bigger wheels I'd get wheelbite too much skating ledges, Ace's I didn't like the pinch, etc.

I tried to have multiple setups bit at the end is no sense for me. My skill level is on the sucky part so adjusting my skating to different setups is a pain in the ass so at the end I stick with just one:
Real Full SE 8.5 x 32.25 wb 13.38 Schaaf R1
Indy hollows 149 GT, thinking about setting Ti149
Shake junt 7/8 allen hardware
Jessup ultra
F4 CF 99 53mm
Swiss 6

Yep, I hate multiple set ups.

9.125" TU Supertanker shape currently, but it could be also be any 9" popsicle. I like the Polar shape a lot with the 14.5WB
Ace AF1 66s
1/8th risers
Mob
The only variables: 53mm F4 classics for mini ramp/street w/ Bronson Raws or 56mm F4 Classics w/ Bronson Ceramics for park


ok thanks

Any 8.25 deck, wb not to exceed 14.25Ē and length not to exceed 32Ē

Thunder 148 hollow lights or standards depending on the deck (got a parts bin of Thunder stuff I make whole trucks from as needed)

99a 53 or 54mm F4s

Bronson G3ís

Mob

Iíll happily skate this setup anywhere from large transition to flat and ledges

throwing on different wheels is a bit much for me. messy, easy to lose washers, and wearing out axle nuts makes it kinda a deal breaker. but i could see how it makes having one setup a little easier.

I recently decided to commit to one setup after hurting myself a couple times sizing down.

8.5 DLX (8.5x31.8x14.25 I think)
Indy 144 (raw hangers, forged baseplate, 3 washers)
52mm SF F4 classics
Bronson G3

I might switch out the trucks to something else once I axel these Indyís (in an effort to go through the Thunder 151 and Ace 44 I have around), but otherwise Iíll be on the same setup.

I've rode lots of shapes in the past but I've been on this set up for 2 years. I mostly skate street and curbs, but I'm comfortable on transition with this.

8.25 14.12-14.25 WB
Ace 44 AF1 (currently) or Venture 5.6 (my favorite since they came out)
50-53mm wheels
Bones Swiss
MOB is preferred but I'll use Jessup.

I never dreamed about having more than 1 board until I got hooked by the shoes and gear thread. I rode the same set of Indys forever, now I've got 4 pairs of trucks, 3 sets of wheels, numerous sets of bushings, bearings, hardware, and sheets of grip, and half a dozen decks I tried and was like "meeeeh, back to BBS mold." Been trying all this new shit (footballs/eggs, longer/shorter wb) and all I really like is what I've liked for the past 15+years,

8.5+ BBS/Generator 14.25-14.5wb (always been DLX but know that I know woodshop info, there's some room)
standard Indys
54-56mm spitfire (PFC right now are pretty nice)
bones Swiss
generic hardware

I kinda feel like dick having all this extra shit in my skate tool box, especially considering how low key I skate right now.

* 139 Indy Hollows, maybe 144 soon
* F4 99a classics, radial slims and wanna try lock-ins
* Modus, Blurs, Indy bearings
* Indy Bolts

8" to 8.25" deck, whichever has the 14" wheelbase.
144 indy mids with low top bushing.
53 or 52 spitfire conical full.
shit gets down on vert too, but i'm 5'8" with size 8 feet so that probably helps

I'd say a good do it all setup would be somewhere from 8.25-8.5 with equal width Indys (good middle of the road truck), and like 54mm wheels.

I'm currently riding an 8.3 coda with 144 Indys, 56mm 99a f4 radials (classic shape is good too), and 1/8 risers. Works on everything for me, I'm tall so I feel like I need a taller board to work with my long ass legs. I don't really skate any transition over 6', but I'm not gonna blame that on my board haha.
.....Nah
