My ownboard got a deck swap to a moose 36" drop down maple from amazon a month back. Philly has some pretty rough streets in general but in this case, I attempted to ride across two sets of trolley tracks (the ones cut flush into the street). I was going pretty slow, just above walking speed and have riden across before in other places. This time…
Snap and down I went. So ironically I just ordered a 35" shoots 5ply bamboo deck from sector nine the other day and I picked up some of the X supports that Ive seen mounted to support the screws
Any other tips for reinforcing this area? Especially when top mounting a truck on a drop through cut deck.
Anyone else have this experience? Im not sure whether to chalk the whole thing up to just a bad location and stress on the board, or was the board weaker than it should’ve been, maybe the trucks were overtightened etc. Would love to hear thoughts
