    There were Don't Trip trucks all over at the Maryhill Spring Free4All this weekend! I was running tall Shrooms, tall Mollys, and a Euphoria/Molly combo, all on Riptide bushings. The Shrooms are definitely the grippiest, and most confidence inspiring for railing corners. I ended up running the tall Mollys (58/30) when things got really fast. SO much lean and so stable. I loved the split rake Euph/Molly combo, but I was running regular bushings roadside, which just don't feel as good as talls to me. But the 6º rake of the Euphoria up front made the setup super nimble and darty, while staying stable. I also saw some skaters killing it on Cybins and Poppies. Dan, you've definitely got a stoke factory going!!! Thanks for everything.

    I don't think a simple explanation would be so much to ask. His current trucks up to this point obviously all kill it, that much we all know. Those trucks are also made in the same shop which dan owns, but cost more. I was just curious what the changes were that made it possible to drop the price 50-100$. I wasn't discounting the trucks, or the sentiment behind making high quality trucks more accesible to skaters that aren't necessarily rich, I was just curious about the specific differences. Obviously the lack of an adjustable base reduces cost. So does less machine time by not having cutouts like mollys and euphorias for example. So does the lack of spherical(s). I just earnestly wondered if there was anything else different, such as a different material.

    I agree it's cool, just like everything else that's come out of DT has been cool. But if all you planned to do was dismissively brush off an honest question just for the sake of being contrary, why even bother posting?

    My bad, I thought you could handle it. Just my opinion, but before anyone starts waving the "You're being a dick in the lovely skate community" finger; lets make sure one is not being a tiny bit hyper-sensi, unnecessarily....Just my opinion, and is why I post.

    Also, my Shroom tailside, is sweet when cornering.....Name:  18301192_10213271595613115_3094835464007460633_n.jpg

    Weren't you posting in the other thread that was pondering why the Fish isn't booming?

    And wasn't one of the concensus answers that people are being total dicks in response to perfectly reasonable questions?
    Like, to a question not even necessarily directed at you? And then being an even bigger dick when the guy clarifies his perfectly reasonable question?

    I'm late to the show here...but, how do any of these hold up to wedging for LDP? Right now, I'm rocking a Bennett 6.0 on a Sk8kings Max and what I'm running into is that the kingpin is SUPER low, so I'm looking for as much ground clearance as possible between the kingpin or hanger and the ground.

    DT Bhangers have same Geometry as Bennetts so same KP issue. DT Poppys are Reverse KP Trucks and you will not have the KP issues

    @bucksaw87/DTS- What about using an inverted kp, any out there long enough? It's possible...

    @mesc- I can admit I did probably come across more sensi than I actually was, and went on a bit of an impulsive rant.
    No real butt-hurt to report here, but my point remaings the same, I asked an honest and basic question, and the response of sarcasm with no real valid info just struck me as a bit jerkoff-y and useless. All good though, I can handle it haha, at least I wasn't told to kill myself or insert something sharp and unlubricated into my rectum...

    It's doable...I've inverted kingpins before. Problem is, nobody around here sells 2.75" bolts in the appropriate diameter and thread count. I'm also fairly open to the idea of new trucks

    I can't believe that you played the "can't get 'em around here" card.... on the internet. Geez, you are getting old.

    You really should get some Don't Trips. Their great to ride and they're straight up shiny machined pr0n.... to be fully appreciated over a beer after the ride.

    If you can deal with their outrageous small order shipping costs you should check out one of the grind king pins from Surf Rodz. Here is a link to it: https://www.surf-rodz.com/products/t.../king-pins-275 That's for a 2.75" grind kp. The top is flat with an allen wrench hole recessed in for adjustment. They work quite well.

    I think you're confused. If you're referring to me, no I didn't get into that "booming" thread. Everything is perspective, to me it's a silly or a useless question, so I answered accordingly. I suppose some might think "Which wheels are best for sliding", is also perfectly reasonable and some may not. Although, this is a public forum, and PM's are great for asking someone specifically.

    I thought Liamt and I were in a safe space in our relationship to express such thoughts....maybe next year. When anyone gets sensi and claims dick, I usually wonder if its really about a pussy.....

    All that said, this thread should be about trucks. Dont Trip trucks, specifically, which rule.

    Dan keeps the stoke flowing and has been a huge supporter of various scenes, from slalom to pool to LDP to DH. I think the real answer is that he is just continuing to get better at making trucks! And that means a better and more affordable product for all. Or if you want to go full custom Euphorias with sphericals and adjustable bases, he can make that happen too.

    Some specialty manufacturers closing up shop continues to leave us with fewer choices in the "affordable" precision trucks realm. Forged trucks are also making a big play. Dan, thanks for helping to fill a need while pumping more stoke into the scene and expanding your business horizons.
