It would be nice if Indy would bring back the 159.

I was playing COD:WOW & I told this one guy to stop being a little bitch. Well, I wasn't aware that this douche lived down the street and he busted into my friend's place & pulled a gun on us. The fucker didn't realize that he was outnumbered so we took his gun & threw his ass out.

it would also be nice if they brought back the old SOLID baseplates...

its like the powers that be at indy said, "i've got a great idea guys-we'll remove a bunch of material from the part of the baseplate that experiences the most stress, making it weaker and guaranteeing breakage. and kids are stupid, so we'll say its to shave extra weight off!  lowered materials costs + more easily broken baseplates + increased profits!!!!!!"

shame on you, indy.

i used to buy a set, grind them to the axles, and replace them. now i buy a set, and within a month or so i break a baseplate. and its not from jumping off shit-i'm old, and haven't jumped down anything bigger than a bench in years.

switch. i think the next time i break an indy baseplate (which should be in about a week)  i'm gonna try some aces.

Indy's with bones bushings is my favorite way to roll. I haven't had the problem with breaking base plates though.

I've always rode indy's (tad over 15 yrs.) and never had any trouble with them.  I was once given a pair of ventures from a dude who "don't skate no more" and I in turn gave them to a friend in need, so I don't know if they were decent or not.

Indy's are no longer. What is made now under Indy name break and bend

Just try the Schroeder 159's & 169's and you will be set for life.

yeah, all trucks will break eventually, but i've been riding indys exclusively since i started skating, and their quality has gone downhill in the last 5-6 years.

it bums me out, too- since all other brands of truck feel funny after over a decade of riding indys. they still turn the best, they just don't last like they used to.

you'd think that all the money indy has made selling their shit in every mall in the world would result in them making even tougher trucks, but so far, they've done the opposite.

Really? How long has a set been lasting you lately? In which way do they break; the baseplate or the hanger?

the baseplate usually breaks in half. usually in about a month. then i either have to cobble a new truck together from old parts, or get a new set of trucks altogether, even though the hangers still have plenty of life in them...

 the ironic thing is that when i was younger, i skated harder, but the trucks lasted longer. 

nowadays, i pretty much skate mostly parks and miniramps, so i'm not as hard on my shit as i use to be...

i do like doing those, but im not some linebacker or anything. i'm 6'2" but not fat... i've pretty much been the same size since i was 19 or so, give or take 15 pounds that come and go... i've only started breaking the baseplates since they started making the stage 9's... i know little dudes who have had the same problem too. it has more to do with the baseplates having less and less metal in them than anything else.

When I was younger they had a deal that if you broke your truck, you just sent in the broken part and they'd send you a new one... Kind of doubt they still got that going.
