This board turned out to be a great surprise for me. I wasnt going to buy the board but it was given to me. I had some indy 159 laying around so I decided to set it up. Here is the set-up.

Indy 159 with khiro bushings of course. I used the yellow(med. hard) insert type bushings in the front and black(hard) in the rear. I also used a wedged riser on the front. Another thing I did was to add an additional cup to the baseplate. C.O. says that it will slightly increase the angle for improved turning. In the rear I am using three 1/8" risers.

As far as wheels go, it currently has a set of the lime-green soft Shogo wheels. After I get another set of bearings I will try it with the ultra-thane Shogo's.

I have said it before, this is THE CADILLAC of skateboards. It is an awsome ride. Everything feels quite linear with this set up. Nothing feels forced. It is very nimble, yet comfortably stable.

Oh yeah... The art is killer too.

Do yourself a favor, buy this board. Even if you have to eat bologna sandwiches for a month. You need this board. Make sure to use wedged risers on the front, get good bushings (Khiro) and use a good all purpose wheel and this board can do anything!

haha i stopped eating lunch several monthe ago for this very reason.  i found if i thinkk of everything in terms of decks i can be pretty frugal.

Me at lunch: "this sub is 5 bucks! thats 1/20th of a BDS deck! Fuck subway, in 20 days ill have myself a new deck!"

Hey, my first post. I've been following this board and it's nice to know I'm not alone. there are others with the same restoke to skating. I just recieved my long pig last week and set it up with Indy 215s with bone hard bushings, 1/2 inch risers, and bulldog mini dubs black 90s with bone swiss. It looks to be the ultimate all around old school long skate. Looking forward to taking it out this week to some parks up in So Or on a Business trip. Time to carve up the bowls.

Thanks you guys! I rode it today, and it kicks ASS! The Gullwings are fantastic.... VERY turny. (They do require old school re-drilling though) The whole setup is very confidence inspiring. I really like the almost-flat feel of this and the Z-13. Do we really need concave?? Hmmmmm....

hey Frank,
I agree, I really like flat and almost flat decks!!
My Bigfoot 2 is just awesome!!!
BUT...
Some decks are just freaking awesome with
massive concave;
Skaterbuilt Pig & Jay Smith
Shitbird Ditch Bitch
to name a few.
I can't imagine them w/o concave.

True, Chris. And concave does add wheel clearance benefits as well.

Wow, very nice! I like the way Seismic springs look with Wes's art in the background. Hmmmm, may have to try Seismics next! Let us know how that thing rides when you get your first chance.

Olden? Chris Olden??? What's the verdict on Siesmics???

hey Frank,
For long wheebase decks(I use them on 19"+ wheelbases)
they are outstanding!!
They are different feeling than "regular" trucks...very, very
responsive, and not "responsive" as in twitchy. Responsive
as in when you turn, they have already turned.
If you have a BDS Longboard, Seismics are an excellent choice
for the that beast!
If you get a set, make sure that you ride them for a few sessions
before passing judgement, 'cause they do need a little bit of
getting used to.
HIGHLY recommended.
Chris Olden
