Anyone else still skating these? Giving mine another shot because I'm dialing back spending and wanted to try something different.

After a flatground session the feeling of them vs Thunders was wild but having no wheelbite at all was solid.

Someone's selling a couple sets on the classifieds board. I'm sort of tempted to take a chance on them, and then I come back to this thread or the gifted hater video and decide against it.

I'd say the regular kingpin or grublock ones are a safe bet (with loctite). They're neat trucks but I think caution is totally reasonable. Now that it's not winter and I can get some good skating in I hope i'll like them more.

If you like standard indy's and get the regular kingpins, you will probably enjoy these.... when they are functioning properly.
.....Nah

I'd consider trying them again with the regular kingpins, but the baseplate just didn't seem that durable compared to other trucks. Was getting really worn in, pivot cup ovalling out way too quickly from nose/tailslides.

Yea I kinda noticed that too tbh. I wasnt sure if it was due to the material grinding away easier, or if the baseplate placement was just further out, causing it to get worn more easily.
.....Nah

skated my Lurpivs yday actually and I still really like them
The unique turning and long grinds make them ideal for a slappy sesh.

Lurpivs look cool all beat up, most trucks do, but lurpivs especially so.
