Snakebite, the wheels are 80s Slammers (some of that NOS gear).

The board's wide, the trucks are wide, the wheels are wide & the skater's wide! :D

Nice looking set up :D especially the pink wheels :D of course they're not as quick as green ones 8)

How about some rails for added verisimilitude?

My new board :D
Mini Logo 181 8.5 x 33 1/2, 149 Indys, Bones Bowlriders 60mm pf, Bones Labyrinth bearings, rails and shox spacers........
It's the dogs spherical bits................. Unfortunately I am not :D

Really chuffed with it - slightly wider deck than previous and hence slightly wider trucks. Turns better for carving but will have to get used to the wobble before dropping in with any gusto :shock:

It's aaaaaaaaaaaace.

Bu66er - can't post green wheels are faster blurb any more. :twisted:

I did hear a rumour that the distance of the rails to the edge of the board has a huge effect on streamlining and therefore greatly affects your speed :twisted:

Hmmmmmmm.
May have to try putting the rails closer to the edges for that extra bit of streamlining :idea:

Fortunately green decka are more streamlined and grippier :twisted:

The real issue was your choice of biscuit, it really should have been Chocolate Hobnobs.

Though I gotta say, tea and biscuits with board building..... I like it :D

Fig rolls are the choice of champions - bite size package with heaps of energy and fibre, help keep your energy levels up when missing brekkie rushing to that early morning session. :)
Bonus is that the fibre means you make your presence felt by the family in the evenings. :?

Gotta have coffee with the biccies.

I used to take fig rolls on bike rides, better and cheaper than all those silly energy bars!
