How much lower are the low's to the standards?  Is there much difference?  I bought some standards when I thought they were lows, but i'm enjoying riding them.  Just wondering how much diff in height there is.  Anyone?

I've heard from many that grenade lows are much better than Indy lows.

It's not much of difference.  I'd say about 1/8 inch, maybe 3/16.

There is some logic to buying low trucks.  You can always buy risers and make 'em higher.  Ya can't lower standard trucks.

I don't know if lows turn as well as standards though.  I've always been on standards.

I went back to indys after having horrid gullwings for years, and I can't beleive I was away so long.  The standards are so nice to ride & turn on, but a lil more lowness would be nice I guess.  I guess i'm only just getting back on the board after a bunch of years, so higher trucks will be more forgiving till I start trying to do flips again.  If the Lows don't turn as nicely, then I think i'll definitely stick with the Standards.

Lower centre of gravity?  Easier to flip something lower to the ground?  Closer to rails when grinding?  All probably details I wouldn't notice at the moment, anyway.

always ridden standards, low trucks seem to offer me nothing more than less play between the board and my wheels.

It's the lack of pivot for ollies that'd hit me I think.

I dig the lows.  I also dig throwing low bushings on regulars...no cutting down bushings necessary.

Not a bad idea, why didn't I think of that. Do they sell "low" bushings seperately by chance?
