I had to go digging around the garage.  Most of these haven't been skated in quite a while.  1992 is the most recent and I'm loving it. Welcome Enenra is the next newest and it's a good all around setup.  Lib Tech is an amazing pool board.


Top Row:

Welcome Nimbus 3000 8.5
Mini Logo 8.38
54mm NFG 95a

Mini Logo 8.0 deck and trucks
51mm STF V2

8" shop deck by South Central
Royal 8" garbage that need to be tossed
52mm F4 99a Classic

8.3" Ishod Twin Tail
Indy Stage 7 146 with inverted kingpins
55mm Mini Logo 101a

8.38" Santa Cruz
Indy Stage 10 149s that don't fucking turn
53mm STF V5

2nd row
Welcome Enenra 8.5"
Indy Ti 149s
52mm STF 99a v5

8.5" shop deck
Indy 146 stage 6
60mm Bones ATF 80a

8.5" Mini Logo
Thunder 149 Ti
54mm F4 99a Conical

9.25" Polar 1992
Indy 159 hollow forged
54mm F4 101a conical

9.25" Lib Tech Jaime Lynn Rat Tail
Ace 66
58mm OJ Danforth 99a for winter (but usually 56mm SPF)

Very nice.

Lol on the royals

4 months since my last post in this thread. Quiver has increased by 5 since then. Now I'm up to 19 setups. Too much? Or not enough?

A more in depth look. Most of my boards are bareback. All of the wheels are Spitfire F4 99a. Reds bearings in most of them.

The Indy setups
L - R
My daily driver. 80% of my skating is on this board. 8.3 shop board, bareback wood, 149s, 52 OG
My old daily driver. I just set up a Christmas complete 6 weeks ago. So I've got my old daily driver as a backup or rain board (for the 5 days a year it rains in San Diego). 8.3 Darkroom, 149s, 53 Classic
Rail board. 8.3 Krooked, 149s, 55 Lockin
Filmer/cruiser/rough terrain: 8.3 Killing Floor, 149s, 54 OJ Keyframe
Double Ltd 9.125 90s shape, 159s, 56 CF This thing is so fun.
8.75 shop popsicle, 159s, 53 Lockin
10" Heroin Craig Questions, 169s, 60 Classic
9.5 $lave War Pig, 169s 60 Classic

The Thunder setups
9" shop popsicle, 161s, 52 OG
Dane1 shop board, 151s, 56 Classic full
Foundation 8.3, 149s, 53 Lockin

The Ace setups
Krooked Gonz, 66s, 58 CF
Creature 8.9 Stump, 55s, 54 CF
Grimple Gerwer egg, 44s, 52 Radial

Ventures
New Deal Siamese, 6.1, 54 CF
8.3 shop popsicle, 5.8, 53 Classic

And the others.
My buddy gave me that Zip Zinger complete like that. The truck were from this Devils Toy by Lurkville complete. Some soft wheels.
G & S Fibreflex from the 70s. Some Indys from the late 90s. I'm no good with Stages. Softies.
A polarizer. roller skate trucks. Bones rough riders


Looks like a car full of dudes all ready to rip. But no, it's just me.  ;D

Yeah, theyre stock. But honestly, I enjoy them. I run em jiggly loose, that being said Id never buy a set because Im super loyal to ace.

Quiver dudes. I wanna set up a second board. But since Ive only ever skated one setup at a time how do I play to the strengths like what makes a park set up vs a street set up? It all comes down to I got classic ace 44s I love. Skating the classic 44s on an 8.5.  Got a 8.3  deck on ice. Gonna go grab the ace af1 55 today. Does it matter which is park or street? Like what is the difference you guys use for park or street.

When I think park, I mostly think transition. So a park set up, might have wider deck, trucks and bigger wheels. Maybe even longer wheelbase if I'm skating bigger transition.

But if you're skating more street elements, plaza style parks I wouldn't really change much... Maybe harder wheels to take advantage of smoother ground?

It all comes down to I got classic ace 44s I love. Skating the classic 44s on an 8.5.  Got a 8.3  deck on ice. Gonna go grab the ace af1 55 today. Does it matter which is park or street?

Depends.. :P

Street: hucking? ledges? flippity?

Park: Street (all of the above) park or bowl park? Both?

I've always had, on average, a few setups:

If it's a bowl centric park: Wider board/longer wheelbase + ACE/Indy/Theeve + 101a/83b BONEs SPF/STFs (bigger)
If it's a street centric park: Smaller board/Wheelbase + Thunders+ 101a Bones STFs (smaller)

Combo park? 8.3"/144 Indy Ti/53mm 101s (I still feel this is the best middle ground for everything)

8.3/8.5 deck, 54/53mm 101a wheels for park (if I'm hitting bowls and street, no bowls the below with harder wheels) ACE or Indy

8.25/8.3 deck, 52/51 99a wheels for 'street skating' Thunders or Tensors

Slappy builds change weekly...but have been going wider, lower and with smaller wheels..

As I'm downsizing my quiver I'm realizing all the 8.25s I was trying to get to feel right were just me wanting to be back on 8.3/8.5 for the fuller nose and tails.

SML coffee cruisers 52mm 78a
venture v-light 5.2 high w/indy super soft bushings
bones reds
diamond hardware 7/8 allen

*zero bloody skull 7.75x31.1 13.88WB
spifire f4 classics 50mm 101a

This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

Far left: Heroin DitchWitch 9.3x31.8 14.1wb
             Ace 55s
             Spitfire F4 Conical 54mm 101a
             Lucky hardware
             Bones Big Balls
             And Lil Jawns Rails
     
     Left: Coda 8.5x31.5 14.25wb
             Indy Hollow 149s
             Bones Super Reds
             Spitfire F4 radial slims 52mm

   Right: Theories Special Delivery Shape 9x31.25 14.25wb
             Indy Stage 11 149s
             Ricta Clouds 92a 56mm
             Bone's Big Balls bearings
             Dial Tone Hardware

                Venture V-light 5.2
                Dialtone 52mm round cut
                Bone's Big Balls

The Heroin board is my slappy setup, the Coda is my all around, Theories in the middle is my cruiser, Theories on the end was an impulse buy and barely gets touched, but will work on flatground with it.  Tis a modest quiver, but a quiver none the less.

I gotta buy more heroin boards. A lot of the graphics kinda turn me off in the catalogs, but then I see them set up and I start questioning every judgement I've ever made.

Yeah I generally lean 'less is more' in terms of graphics which is not Heroin at all, but it grew on me.  I know the fact that a lot of their boards are dipped turns some people off, but this one feels great and has great pop so I'm good with it.  Got my eye on the symmetrical egg that just came out next.

From left-right:
1. 8" Peace of Wood (now defunct local brand), ventures, 53mm spitfire classics. My girlfriend is learning to skate so this is her primary setup now
2. 8.55" Antihero (yinzer shape), indy 149 hollows, 53mm f4s. This is my street board, probably going to size back down to 8.25s after this one.
3. 9.25 Welcome, Ace AF1 66s, spitfire 55mm tablets. My local diy has loads of curbs and transition, so I put this together just for those.
4. 8.25-ish shaped pennswood deck, thunder 148s, 64mm oj 3s. Set this up as a cruiser but it hasn't seen much use, still fun to have around though.
