    Quoting for great justice.

    How much would shipping to the UK be, do you reckon? Also, would I be able to purchase extra hangers to compensate for the fact that Her Majesty's Royal Customs DO like to rip us off over here?

    You Guys are on your own with purchasing Bushings and pivot cups or the Trucks will end up costing $150.- set and still wont be the way everybody prefers.

    Yeah, stock pivot cups as an option (just like the bushings) would be good. Most people probably don't want to go through the trouble of getting them separately...

    Huh... You'd figure 8" trucks would seem smaller than that on a 9-3/8" deck... I normally ride Indy 149 on my 8.25" street board but 8" DT look very promising for their size.

    Its the offset, square lipped wheels. They extend almost to the edge of the deck.

    O the site they mention "clear" as a color option. does that mean raw, but with a clear anodizing-finish?. dumb question maybe.

    Im hoping that trippins are medium height actually- for a drop through D-Tap, I've always thought that my IndeeSZ might be a hair too low for the best leverage. . How high are these to the axle center?

    So far the sodahead concensus is that DTap /IndeeeSz is the "perfect setup", so we have high hopes for DT's on the DT. I expect apples and oranges becuase of the different geometry of the pivot, which could be a revelation for us old Indy fans - IndeeSz ride nothing like Indys. I like how indys turn a lot at first and progressively resist, where IndeeSz spin you around so fast your head spins.

    Height: I think theyre gonna be a hair higher- maybe someday I can flush-mount my tap from the top, yeah that'd be the sweet spot. . . Dan you must be thinking "wtf these longboard dudes are crazy about every little detail, they are such geeks"! Well I know I am anyway. (*:

    Once I get my set I'll post a photo with all 3 (Indy 169 stage 10, IndeeSZ, and Trippins)

    Will be a few weeks though since I'm waiting on the anodized version

    Edit:

    Indeesz are approximately 2.25" tall

    Independent is 2.10"
    •IndeeSZ is ~2.25"
    •Caliber 44* is 2.3"
    •DontTrip Trucks is 2.3125"
    •PNL Trucks is 2.38"
    •Caliber 50*/Gunmetal 50* is 2.45"
    Paris is 2.55"
