I have the Ace af1 low 22 since they came out last year
Have not skated 129's since then and I think I have three sets sitting at home

The AF1's 7.75's lows are good and yes they measure 7.75

When ace 33s first came out, I was super hyped on them. Had the white ones, loved em. Since then, Iíve fucking hated almost every ace setup. Rare instances Iíve had a great time on 33s, 44s, and even 55s. Actually I did really like the 55s, but I donít like boards that big. I swear those have a different geo (they donít, Iím just an idiot).
Not stoked on the af1s.
Buuuuuuut, the one constant with the setups that worked for me was short wb, and often bigger wheels.
Glad they work for you, I just got tired of trying to get all of the parts lined up for it to work, for me.

Damn ! You make me want to get back on a skinny board !

I've been skating 8.00 for 5 years now, I've skated 8.125, 8.25 before, but that was when I was doing a lot of gap ! Now, I skate a lot a lot of flat , Sometimes park, banks, hip transfer, and very rarely ledge.. I think a 7.875 board, even a few centimeters less than an 8, can help me with this style of skating and for certain tricks.. ! ::) ;D

I'm 5'8", and 8 shoes size.

Many say you can't have control with a small deck, but when I see PJ ladd or Luan riding 7.8.. ahah

Y'alright

Feel like this might have been said on this thread a couple hundred times but I'm thinking of biting the bullet and getting a 7.75. Had a session on my mate's deck which is a very similar set up to mine and it felt very good to skate. Had better control and overall that shit fit like a glove and felt less clumbsy.

Gonna be moving down from an 8", but what's the consensus when it comes to trucks and wheels? My current set up has Film 5.25s (which are equivalent to a 139, except it's 135mm) with 52mm Spitfire OG Classics (non-formula four wide cunts with the green spiral on them)
[close]

I think 129s are usually matched with 7.75, so any truck thatís 7.625.  Does anybody make trucks that are exactly 7.75?
[close]

Difficult question. With 7.75s I usually go 5.0s/129s. Mostly because thatís how it used to be, in my youth. 139s/5.2s/147s (8Ē) trucks work fine too.
The green eagle, the 7.81 shape, is tricky because I really donít know which truck to runÖgreat board tho.
Iíve never gotten into the small aces or tensors, but I guess they have the 7.75 axle, never measured them myself.

I used to always try to make sure my trucks was slightly wider than the deck so the wheels can be as flush. Never liked any of the magic carpet look. I used to ride 5.2 with 7.5 and I think on 7.75 looks perfect.
These days I just strictly ride 5.0s and got used to how they look on 775.
Wide trucks donít mean better lock. Smaller trucks feels better for locking into grinds imo

5.0s are the best.

I don't usually ride boards this small, but I thought it would be fun to kick around. I skate a lot of flatground and ledges, so why not?
