    Getting ready to put this baby together!

    Trying to figure out a cool grip pattern. I have a set of 180mm Surf Rodz TKP trucks and a set of 70mm Sector 9 centerset wheels. The trucks probably aren't ideal but hopefully they will give it a nice, surfy feel. If the wheels are too big I have a set of Phat Deanz 55mm Baby dollz I can give a try.

    Tinkering with this stuff is half the fun of skating in some ways! It has a lot of the same appeal as wood working does for me. Planning things out, assembling your tools and supplies; it's a lot of fun plus you can always take it apart and try different combinations. And testing your setups, analyzing how things are affected is intellectually rewarding as well. Man I love sk8boarding!

    Revenge trucks, 85mm Speed Vents...
    I love the tinkering too; most mornings are tuning runs around here.

    Buy a narrower set of axles for the Surf Rodz. Then wedge/dewedge with soft risers.
    ¿?

    No can do on the Rodz. They are the hexagonal extrusion hangers with fixed widths. Was already planning on the soft wedges, I'm sure it needs all the help turning it can get!

    That deck with the Speed Vents is really beautiful! Glass grip I assume?

    Yep, that's glass grip. Got this deck about 3 sales ago. Rus actually recommended the Revenge trucks (with normal-sized wheels though). I have mixed feelings about them- they work pretty well, but I had to spend quite a bit of time straightening the axles right out of the box. Had some DT Trippins on there but couldn't get'em to feel right; plus they needed ridiculous amounts of riser to run the Avilas I wanted to use. The Speed Vents are there mostly 'cause they're pretty narrow and that gets the overall width I wanted, plus the clearance allows... this thing is basically a Mercedes 600 Pullman limousine- literally big fun.

    o.O

    The hangers are replaceable.
    I have a few of their tkps and a set of 177mm and 159mm hangers for each.
    They are held on by a couple of screws.

    Have fun! (I'm partial to the rodz )

    Yeah I won't be buying any parts from Surf rodz anymore. Check out their website and see what it costs to ship to you. They have free shipping if you spend $125.00; but if you don't get to the minimum, shipping a small part was about $30 last time I wanted something. I'm not into getting extorted to buy more than I want to in the first place. Their customer service is dreadful based on my past experiences, and I'd say this is another example of it.

    I have five or six sets of their trucks which I like, it's the customer service that blows...

    My friends building a board for me. He used rock salt and he rides Barefoot on his I'm wondering if this other stuff might be a little bit more rugged since I'll be using shoes.
