Title: Trucks. 129 or 139?
Post by: Pablo on August 01, 2011, 12:44:29 PM
Hey, I'm about to buy some brand new trucks BUT i have this fuckin hesitation.

I'm ridin' a BAKER 7.75, and my actual trucks (that I have broken yesterday) were SPEEDDEMONS 129'' with 53'' wheels.

I want to get some indys, but I dont know if to buy 129 or 139 ones. That's my hesitation. I want some low ones, I'm sure about that.

I'm ridin this 7.75 deck at the moment, but maybe in the future I'll get an 8 one.

Can you suggest me what to do? Some specific independent model maybe?

THANK YOU.

Z-Rollers or Trackers Work the best.

I hear Element really stepped up their truck game. Check them out.

Actually for the size of board you're riding you're going to want to get some Indy 212's. The other trucks mentioned are way too small.

Shite answer. Of course i fuckin googled it but i didnt find anything.

Anyway i'm thinking between these two: indys 139 low (I think they're stage 10) OR Thunders 145 lights strike light, low.

Sorry, they're Indy 215's.My mistake.  I didn't want to lead anyone astray on their quest to find proper trucks.
So just get the Indy 215's and you'll be all set.

I think that truck would be extremely wide.

I'm between the indys 139 low (I think they're stage 10) OR Thunders 145 lights strike light, low. What do you think?

i think that if it's this tough of a decision, then buy one of each and rock 'em both.  a review would be fantastic.

I'd really go with those 215's.  You want to be able to grind things right? Yes, of course you do. Go with the 215's and thank me later. Plus it's what all the pros ride. The companies market smaller/ beginner trucks so you'll have to upgrade and they make more money so their team riders can drink Mt. Dew on tour.

Do you realize that i'm looking trucks for a skate deck (7.75) and the 215's are at least 186mm wide?

WTF?

Anyway, thanks for the suggestions.
