Default DA XK-4 again





OK here we are with Khiro KBAC 2 cushions.... It looks like a real good option with rubber available from soft (72A) to concrete (I can't count that high...)

The conicals have molded in aluminum retainers... Nice feature...

Fresh Eddie will be doing derby on these soon...

Arrow Feel free to

Contact Sure Grip and ask... All I have is a guess and they are not 100% ready to kick this off...

I know I can build a few....but have no idea when the trucks will run out...

Any input to Sure Grip would help...

The reverse kingpin is an addition a lot of derby skaters will thank you for!

Default Sho Nuff...

I pretty much do any plate I can correctly countersink that way......for me... Usually requires pulling king pins etc to get the tool in the right spot...

Man that plate has to skate awsome! I only skated a DA 45 once, It was a sure grip something, can't remember which one, i think they only make one DA 45 but anyway, It was really turny but in a good way. It looks nice Doc !

Default How long??

2 3/8" and they should work fine on a Sure Grip SA application. They look good on the Super White I just checked...

No, These are threaded on both ends. Not something you find in any parts list... It's a special Sure Grip part and I can get 'em...

Special also because it has that absurd only-Sure-Grip-uses-this-ever thread size?

And forgive me for not having as good an eye as everyone else, but is all you did to these move/switch out the jump bar, make the kingpins reversed, and replace the cushions?

I know they have different trucks with adjustable pivot pins with a nylon pivot pin bushing and I think the truck angle is different.
