Ok, I really really really need a kicktail on my board.
I can’t believe how restrictive the flat rear is on this longboard.
I have to get off the board, lift it up and turn around tight corners.
It make me feel like such a dork. So:
Does a kickball longboard exist where its possible to use 100mm MBS wheels?
Preferably one that doesnt look like a duckbilled platypus.
Or will it inevitably mean wider trucks?
plenty more out there too
look for freeride/DH decks
I have a few kicktails and I use 107mm wheels on everything (except a CarbonGT which has 100mm Constrictor wheels)
that darkside36 is callin man…
I just have doubts that 100mm MBS wheels are gonna fit without wheel bite.
What boards do you have that fit those wheels?
Any board will fit them. One of them is a Powell-Peralta Lance Mountain reissue which is 25cm (10") wide with no wheel cutouts and 107mm wheels. Just use a 25mm riser and everything is fine
@telnoi seems to have added a kick tail to his build:(
Oh wait…that might be something else…
Ouch! Cant even imaging how that happened.
woah hope that was not at a fast speed.
This one is great! That’s how a skateboard should look like. Man this one makes me drift in nostalgia and reminds me of the times skaters where a bunch of people on public places practicing disorganized pleasure.
Coming over from the escape thread, i feel relieved.
Sorry for being off topic, but can you share a picture from under the board.
It’s a commercial board actually, I just put it on a better deck. (2017 Metroboard Shortboard)
Best commuter board I’ve found. A huge tail can certainly work with 107mm wheels…
that is sick dude, I really want to ride that!
Get a spud 29, TB 218 trucks and S2 bindings…cheap and functional and a metric shit ton of fun
That’s my edgie dad build! My sons little buddies at the skate park go bat shit for it!
how is your build doing i remember hearing after it was completed its quite a rocket!
Which one . If you mean the spud 29, I wasn’t happy with it so tore it down for parts. I’m in the process of building a new one with 10s4p pack, 200kv motors on dual FocBoxes using MBS Matrix 2 trucks on @okp risers. Should be fun .
i really like my double kick skateshred drop through
