This is my first skate on skateboard wheels (ACS430 truck). Didn't notice any bite, but then I didn't get that much air...

It was a still a little damp so I found myself losing grip as I tried to build any momentum up. Think I'll take the abec 7's from my kryptos and put them in the bullets. The ABEC 3's I tried today were poor at best, but then that was their first outing, so they might be better once ran in.

I will go for tracker trucks eventually, but for now I can still skate them...

Default quad vert trucks

Hi guys

Yes, stronger axles and jump bars with a good soft wheel are highly recommended 4 quad vert.
However, I fail to see a need for wider trucks.....just what advantage does anyone see here?

Was thinking of wider trucks for grinding, opens up a bit more of the park...

Eventually I want to try some side stance as well. I used to skate with acs 651s when I was younger, and liked the added stability. I did get tangled up a few times when I first got them though... not sure if I want that as I'm dropping in. Guess it all adds to the fun...

There is a thread on the Adinfintum forum posted HERE. I have details and photos of my last skate build. (Click on the thread tree at the bottom of that linked page for the whole discussion)

All prices are in USD.

I bought Ace '00' trucks new - $110. Wider trucks allow grinds and stability.

I found slightly used cross country ski boots at a resale shop for $30.

Snow skis that I cut for plates, which only cost me $2 from another resale shop (so far I have cut 2 sets of plates out of 1 pair of skis).

Got a great deal on 8 B.D.S. skateboard wheels (from Claudine - another vert skater)- $50.

New $20 bearings from Academy Sporting goods store.

Special UHMW & HDPE plastics I bought for sliders / grind blocks - $25.

Various hardware / bolts & nuts - $30

If you want more sources for ideas and/or products for vert, let me know.

Many thanks for the info, I'm hoping to build a set very similar...

At the moment though, work is on and off so cash isn't something I have loads of. When I do get a decent run (of work), I'll start slowly picking parts and tools up to do a pair. http://www.strickywear.net say on their facebook page that they have plates and sliders for sale soon, they look really smart as well.
