    Rflak, do me a favor.
    Just take a quick trip over to the UK, pick up the Legend, ship it to Chicago for me?

    There are always remedies to avoid wheelbite.

    Thanks for the knowledge. I don't have a whole lot of experience tweaking my set ups as such, so this is good to know. I'm partial to my Indy's and I'll be running em with 72mm cult dominators. Think sanding those double wheel wells might work, and getting some wedge risers. Thanks again. (:

    Can I have that weigh up pleasseee?

    Also forgot to ask earlier, but how wide is the back foot platform on the Shocker? That narrow part right around the logo.

    Sorry for posting a bunch of different questions, I'm shopping for a new board and want to make an informed decision.

    what is the maximum sized wheels for the symbian? and does it weigh reasonably within the range of weight for doing tricks like tiger claws and others that require throwing the board around?

    Agreed.
    But I'm saving up for the legend, and I'm glad that there's finally an option for US buyers!

    The max wheels depend on a lot of factors...truck geometry, truck tightness, bushing selection, risers.
    Theoretically, there's no maximum size.
    Just stick in a 65-75mm range like most longboard wheels on the planet and you'll be fine.

    In regards to the weight....it's a bit silly to ask if it's within a reasonable range for tricks.
    What defines a board a reasonable or unreasonable? Who sets the standards for what's heavy and what's not.
    I love using my bhangra for tricks, but obviously it might be heavy for a 13 year old kid who weighs 100 lbs less than me ya know?
    If you wanna use it for tricks then do so...you'll be fine using it for them.

    So I'm hoping to see the new lineup in stores in a couple weeks. I was ready to put in my preorder, but realized there's a two week wait time and $8 shipping. ha!

    So I placed a preorder on a board and I'd like to know when they'll actually be shipping?

    PS. Your contact form is broken, keeps telling me to enter a "valid email address".

    Yep, had the same problem with the mail. I already posted that on their fb and wrote that in the mail. I'd suggest you contact them over info@lushlongboards.com . Just write them a mail and they answer you quick.

    Also the boards should ship out in 2 weeks if not less.

    And another two weeks for shipping to the US means I'll get it in a month. Gaaaaaaay

    I'd stick with 70mm wheels with a contact patch around 50mm. Classig Zig Zags or something.


    And just to let everyone know, the Lush boards have been shipped to US and Europe dealers.

    Go to the Lush Longboards website, choose the symbian and click on buy. You'll see what it comes with.

    Out of my head I think it comes with Sabres and Cult Classics.
