Looking at getting a

Real between 8 and 8.25
Venture Lo 149s
54mm Bones STF  wheels
Bones Super Red Bearings
Shorty's Silverado's
Mob Grip

I may get Bones medium bushings depending on how I feel about the Venture bushings. I've had 3 years worth of Ventures and they've been good to me, but I want to try out the Bones bushings everyone raves about. Also, probably getting some riser pads, not sure what kind though. Suggestions?

What do you guys think of my truck to board ratio? I just want to see what others think and compare it to my own ideas before I make these purchases. I haven't gotten a complete all at once in a long time 

Honestly I have never put this much thought into specifications. In the 10 years I've been skateboarding I've never really thought of truck/board ratio.... Since my first complete, my set up has just sort of evolved. I would just buy things based on trial and error. It sucked because I'd be stuck with mob shit for awhile, but in retrospect I'm kind of glad I just skated whatever I had.

Lemme know what you think. If you think I should get something else, tell me why. I'm all eyes.

sorry, but if you've been skating for 10 years and still need board advise, i say quit.

or you could go with what Chuck rides.  he fucking shreds on this set up,

36" Slingz
6.5 Selfish Wenning
Shake Junt grip
7" Variflex pro team 2 trucks
I only use two truck bolts in each truck to save weight.
Hubba Chris Cole 65mm by 55A yeah the same ones he uses in competition
I took the bearings out of a Target board that had the Hulk on it. I popped the shields and they were so fast I gave my bones swiss to some older kids at the park.
I wear size 21 New Balance Leo Romero SOTY shoes. They are green.
I wear Quicksilver Chris Cole skate jeans sized 24x43 they are white.
Apple I Pod 2
Skullcandy Ear Blaster Bass headphones
I like to drink a few cans of Fresca for my energy drink.
Three raw eggs mixed with 3TB of nutmeg is what I eat before I skate, it works so well. You don't want the extra weight of solid food in your system. I noticed that less food in me, two truck bolts and the popped shields on my bearings makes my overall set up so much lighter that I ollie higher and I have less wind resistance so I can skate faster too.

Nah I don't really need advice, just value the thoughts of fellow shredders. I want the riser pads just for shock absorbency, not to raise em. Cut the smug...

I really don't understand why youre asking for setup advice if you've been skating for 10 years. If your trying to get what everyone is riding on here just to fit in, youre a mark. ride what you like if thats the case.





and risers on lows dont make the board last longer

Yes...I am just trying to see what everyone else is riding, so I can be cool  :Smiley . Just wanted to see what people thought...I'll probably end up riding whatever I feel like....

This thread was pointless from the get go and you just confirming this fact means you're blowin' it. This will be the last time I read anything you write. And because of you I'm gonna tear down my ramp and start making bombs

just go to zoom-zooms and buy a longboard and some flip-flops, then push mongo all the way to the nearest 7-11 and buy yourself a tall can of some lame ass energy drink and tell the uninterested clerk about how you shred and snap "mad dekz". then shoot yourself in the face  Grin

Don't forget shoe selection! I only skate in moccasins, cuz they aren't so hard on your board. Also, if you put lots of shoe goo on your wheels, or cut up a bike tire and wrap that around them, it really helps shock absorbency! I actually quit skating a long time ago though, because I didn't want to break my board and have to ask everyone what I should get next.

I never really buy new set ups, I piece them together with whatever works for what I want to do, I go through boards every month or so so it really doesn't matter. I do recommend Air Jordans for skate shoes though, nobody ever believes me that I have skated these thing almost every day for the past 3 years, no goo, no holes, still holding strong and can still pass off as nice tennis shoes. I've decided that people that make skate shoes intentionally make them so that they wear out in 3-6 months max I tried everything (I'm not going to go into specifics and be a dick about it). I don't know what kind they are other then black suede with gater skin patterns, and thick rubber on the part that you flip and ollie with.
