I moved down from 52's to a 50mm. I got the F1 Street Burners. I don't know if it was because my last pair of blanks were just a piece of shit or not but these wheels are amazing. They're fast, they're light, they're really really smooth.

About whether or not the extra 1 of 2 mm matters or not that is rather true you probably won't be able to tell too much but after getting these wheels I finally got kick flips down.

How are the thunders?^

I love Thunder trucks. Always been my favorite.
But has anyone had a problem with them bending? I usually ride the lows, the 145s I think (whichever fits an 8 ). I was working on flatground one day in the Summer, breaking in the new trucks, and check this out:

Notice anything awkward about the one on the left? Never hit a ledge or went down a gap with them. Just straight up bent on flatground after about 2 hours. Anyone else have something like this happen to them?
Dec 16, 2010 @ 17:30
^Woah what the fuck man? Thats probably a manufacturing defect you might be able to get warranty on that. From flat ground only? Unless you weigh over 100kg that doesn't make sense haha. Try and see if you can get warranty for them. That puts me off getting them now smh . Might just get the indy lows.

Guys at the shop said the same thing. They said the Thunder lows usually bend when you hit huge gaps, but not from flatground. I still like them the most out of all trucks though (when I did have non-defected trucks). I've been trying out Indys for the last couple of months. Just the raw standards. I hate that they weight like 20lbs. Feels solid and secure though. And do they make Indy lows now?
Dec 18, 2010 @ 07:16
Yeah they do make lows now. Haven't heard much from them. People generally say you can't tell the difference at all anyway. Indy's are heavy as fuck. I know a couple of people who ride Tony Hawk's new truck company Theeves. I'll probably get them in the next two weeks and give them a go. They're getting a lot of reviews saying they're better than indys in all aspects. But all titanium :S? Sounds like another gimmick.

happened to mine once but the rest were all fine minus the kingpin breaking after a couple months, i have tensor magnesiums right now good but i still prefer thunder lows
Dec 20, 2010 @ 13:35
holy shit @ those bent thunders lmao

i pretty much ride thunder, indy, krux...anything except ventures because of the shitty design they have when you put them on/take them off.

i had tensors and idk, i just prefer something more solid feeling.
Dec 21, 2010 @ 06:35
Think I'm going to give these a go. Long shot. But hey whatever I've never bought trucks before I just use my friends old ones.

Skated some 129's the other day on my friends board. Shit is solid. It turns well and it's really stable. Buuuuut. I skated some Theeves and ended up getting a pair instead. Give them a go. I've got a couple of friends that skated Indy's for years but then moved to Theeve and claimed they're better.

Used to skate and miss it, but don't have the time anymore
Jan 11, 2011 @ 10:05

I used to skate back in fresh/soph year of HS, but I quit since. Cause for some fucked up reason, I would always be inclined to sprain my ankle. After I healed from one, it would happen again just a month later lol. Does this happen to anyone else? I bought those ankle braces from Pro Tec, but it was hard to flick

Yeah that's why I had to add extra. Fallen is sellout status to begin with!
Jan 19, 2011 @ 09:44
my best deck yet has been: Krooked, Ricta, Thunder, Bones Reds
For shoes: Vans Chukka Low, Adidas Campus Vulc or a Blazer SB

Fave skaters: P Rod, Koston & Mike MO

what do you guys think of skating Blazer SB's? Hard to get used to I found.

I will only skate Indy's (but I do switch the bushings for Krux). Here is my back truck after learning stand up grinds >smh.
