Rode Indy's from ~ 1999 - 2009.  Good trucks but I've been riding Theeve since Jan 09 and don't foresee myself switching back.  Theeves grind just as good, are significantly lighter and turn better. I also drive a Japanese car! :gasp:

oh, no. i've been called gay on teh intarwebz by a super hardcore skater dickriding marketing brainwash victim.

indy used to be the best trucks out, but their quality has been going downhill since stage 7. i remained loyal as long as i could, but too many slipped axles, broken baseplates, and their steadfast refusal to put decent bushings in their trucks has made me go to ace.... which, btw, was started by independent's old team manager after he got sick of pushing a substandard product.

I am a pretty big fan of Ford Trucks but I'll spare you that little tirade as it's just my preference and I have owned non-'Merican vehicles before.  I am also a pinko commie who sells secrets to the Chinese government.

Back to the topic, I have a set of of Indy Stage 10 139 and 149s that have been pretty good to me other than the crap bushings that were swapped out for Bones Mediums shortly after installing the 139s and prior to even riding the 149s.  I threw the 149s on a cruiser and the 139s are my everyday trucks which are about to be worn down to the axle. 

I am probably going for the full titanium Theeve TiHs as a replacement given the strength, rigidity, weight of titanium and I can't see a reason why they wouldn't kick ass.  Compared to aluminum, titanium also dampens vibration more so i assume that would help smooth out the ride.  Lastly, if you can tell the difference between grinding aluminum coping versus steel coping then it may be the same with trucks.  Apparently I am the dick head who thinks he is a metallurgist all of the sudden.

Is that a joke?  The Republic of China is governed by the Communist Party of China who, amazingly, adhere to communist/socialist ideologies.

Thunders are made in San Francisco.. Ventures are made in San Francisco..

Someone needs to do some fucking research before spouting off a hate speech on Trucks.

I DRIVE A FUCKING CHEVY GODDAMNIT!

I rode Indys or Thunders for over a decade, tried some Gullwings, Trackers, Ventures and some Tensors along the way...stuck with thunder.

Recently, after a long hiatus of not skating I went on a truck binge, skating Indy Stage 10s, Thunder IIs, Theeve TiKings and ACE 33s...all with bones bushings.  ACE kick the crap out of all of the above when it comes to turning, casting and hell, look.  Theeves are close but I cannot get them to turn like the ACEs.

I drive a Japanese car.
Half the crap we all own is made in china...clothes made in india, decks from mexico of china, throwing out you buy american trucks means shit. I'm sure you know that Indy forged baseplates are made in china, right?

I've been riding Ventures for a while, never had a problem with them other than grinding down the kingpin to the point it's impossible to adjust the tightness. And I drive a Daewoo, they don't even make them anymore.
