Not sure that's all I've ever used ... You could just feed zip ties through the trucks holes to build a little barrier those might last longer to

Got my board today. I took it to a friends house and he said my wheels were incredibly too small. He gave me some extra wheels he had laying around. I think they are sector 9 76mm 73A.

I mean they are alright.. Pretty cheap for the most part... Not sure if it's double shielded meaning you can't actually see the ball bearings... If it is it makes it a lot harder to clean later

I would get some later as long as they are not siezed up your good .......for meow

Gotcha... Only bad with that is they don't get as clean as you want them... But it's all good to.. New bearings and wheels bring to life the board

Nice I'm super jelly cause I've heard the hills out there are fast and so nice.. Where I went to college in the states they had one hill that was like butter... Got up to 50mph with a car following it was crazy fast... Sad news was it isn't super long but def worth it

Until the cops showed up... Still trying to figure out how were different from bikes goin down the road

Bikes got brakes, Boards got feet to stop ;) or hands if your a slider.

I used to board on the south coast of England (Eastbourne) and that was out of this world amazing..

With as little as I have had the board I am thinking of selling it. It just flexes way too damn much. The company says that it won't break, but that it is flexible. I might sell the board as a deck or as a whole unit. A good friend of mine who is into loaded decks rode it and said that it is like a loaded level 3 in terms of flex. For reference I weigh 192lb and I have a good 7 lb of messenger bag on me.

It almost got me killed.

But during the short time I rode it before it killed me I decided it's a good board.
32" long
Drop through
Reds bearings and nice wheels

I paid like $200 for it

Yup that's why I don't like flexible boards anymore... It's all personal preference kind thing...once I had a dervish... Then went to switchblade and never went back

Sell, part out, or keep are really your only options trading is harder with longboards then it is with cars but it's possible

Well I am thinking one of two things. Sell outright, or keep the deck and put it on my wall and just buy a new deck.

I could use the money, but it is so beautiful and I know I probably won't get my money back. I figured I could get a deck on craigslist that does not flex as much and over a while piece together some more parts to make it a beach board walk board.

Yah. There certainly is an element of that that I am feeling. I see it as I could probably sell it and pick up a bamboo sector nine off of craigslist and be half way toward some runabout m2 mirrors.
