    Default Metro Express Wheels

    I was looking around muirskate and saw these


    So they appear to just be a big metro motion but are they? They are 77mm and only come in 78a.
    I was wondering if anybody had ridden them. I also haven't seen anything about them in any threads...

    You gotta give things time to permeate the market and get tried out before you can expect to read threads and reviews on em.

    That being said, I dunno why they made these in 77mm instead of 75mm
    Hope this doesn't give people wheelbite problems, but it is nicer to have some extra thane to wear through before coring

    Probably because the Micro's are 63mm and they want to keep things familiar.
    Much like how Abec 11 Reflex thane goes up by 3a each color.

    Sorry I didn't realize how new they were. I probably would have preferred a 75mm. I was really asking if they are just a big metro motion or are they slightly different?
