Built a fresh piece just to shake it up:

Antihero Green Giant
Indy 169s
Bones Hard Bushings
Powell G-Slide 59s
Bones Reds
Thunder 1-1/8” hardware
Indy 1/8 risers
Jessup

As a rule I usually only run white wheels but these were a gift from my daughter and now I actually really like how they look so jokes on me.

Just got it together and did a lap around the block just to shake it down. Feels really nice so far.
Id skin my knee and palms so bad on my buddys jump ramp with that thing.

Has anybody re-drilled the wb on a loveseat/couch? My couch is unskateble for me with ace trucks, but drilling the tail 0.5" shorter might just be good?
Short wb, 3-4 fingers of flat and the long mellow tail is kinda insane with ace. zero leverage.

Update, I redrilled both nose and tail 0.375" shorter. From a 13.875 to a 14.625 wheelbase and it's the best decision I've ever made. Sickest board ever, absolutely loving it now. Baby suddenly got pop

The kicks are not too quick from where the bolts are?

That really says something for how long the mold is that they used, so a more normal wheelbase on that sort of board could really be something that worked better than the shorter one.


Someone like @Frank and Fred who has had all those Crail options could see if they were the same mold from Couch to Phawt but I would think they would be using different molds for different lengths, but who knows.


Edit:


I can definitely see a lot of flat from the bolts to the kicks on that pic anyway.

My solution for the Couch being so squirrelly with Aces is.... Thunders...

Couch works real good with 151s.

Why not just get a Huffer at that point though?

It's not that serious -
Go fast, catch a frontside

Because I didn't know these decks come with a hand of flat instead of fingers. It's ridiculous. I'd need some forged ventures for that but damn me if I buy more trucks.

chocolate 9.25 couch shape
ace 55
swiss
perus 53mm

skated a heroin big egg 9.15 before. compared to the egg the couch has no concave at all. its so flat.
wheels also felt really soft today compared to spitfire f4 on my other setup.
I really dig the 55ers even with original bushings.
felt like skating a big cruiser today. fun though.  :o

Crailtap has the 2 for 80 deal going with griptape and free shipping. They have the 9.12 phawt shape and the 9.2t couch shape available to pick...thinking of snagging one of each for the deal. Thought id share if anyone is interested in those 2 shapes!

I just set up this lovely beast here, and that shape is no longer available, so Im already looking for my next.
Ive been eyeing this for sometime now, and never thought that Id purchase an Alien 2.0.
But here I am, semi-bonered over this canuck flagged beauty.
Is it the same wood as the 2000s era Alien?
I was a big fan back then

Black Label punk point still has life, but I wanted a more square tail. Might set up the BL again later down the line.




Dogtown Tschoff Karma 'Puppet' Deck 9.625" x 32.375" with 14.5-15" adjustable wheelbase (set at 14.5")

Independent Standard 159s with IKP baseplate set, 92a top bushing and 90a bottom bushing

Powell Peralta Dragon Formula 56mm 93a V6

Bones Super Reds Ceramics

Independent x Slayer 1" hardware

Rib Bones

Jessup Ultra


For those interested in the Dogtown 90s reissue series, for whatever reason the shorter wheelbase holes were drilled by hand. They still work as usual, but the drill job is ugly and rough.

https://upriseskateshop.com/collections/uprise/products/chi-town-pup-scots-team-deck-9-1?variant=42802656706775

I think this is another Dream Girl shape. The dims are just ever so slightly off but I barely measure over 9" on the Adored Dream Girl I have. I wonder why this is the third one from as many companies this year when it used to be a JK exclusive? The only common thread is BBS, though that's not confirmed for the Uprise deck. Also I totally get that maybe I am the only one who gives a shit but it's my favorite eggish 1991/2 shape. The graphic on this one is pretty dope too.

Ive cut down on my spending on skate gear dramatically the past 12 months. Thought Id ruin that by impulse buying some trucks. Then wheels. Then bearings.

whats the width over the trucks?
wanted to try one for a minute
just dont want to size up past 8.75 axles

from the middle of the rear truck holes, the width is 8.75 almost on the dot.
from the middle of the closer truck holes up front it looks like 9.75, and if you did the longer 14.5 WB, sacrificing some of the nose, it'd be just a little smaller than that. Hope you get one, I'm not a Powell fan particularly as much as I am a Frankie Hill fan but it's been so sick to ride. Here was my first session on it at a nearby pump track
