That black/gold LP and the wheels are long gone. Think Pat might have let the SP go too, but I'm not sure. I can't remember $h!t !!!

Hello Everyone!  I am setting up my LP1 and wanted to get some feedback from the experts.  Basically I want it to be “a board for all seasons”, so to speak, an all around skater.  I am mainly going to use it for street and sidewalk cruising, bombing hills, and perhaps a trip to the outdoor concrete skate parks once or twice a year.  Ok, here is my plan for the set-up.

 

  • Tracker Darts 184 or 219 – not certain if the 219’s will be to large with wide wheels, but I am looking for the best stability at higher speeds without sacrificing turning ability at slow speeds
  • Bennett Gator Wheels - 71mm, 2in width; either the Green 78duro or Blue 80 duro
  • ½ in flat riser pads

Well, it’s taken me months of obsessing over the right parts, but here’s my LP1… Finally!

 

Paris 180’s Raw on Black - this was a special order since the Adam Colton’s were unavailable

Paris 1/8” riser pads

Bennett Alligator 71 mm 80a – Blue to pick up the water swirl

Ugly Nose Bone

Powel Tail Bone

 

This is my all around street cruiser.  I sprayed the underside with two coats of clear gloss to protect the graphics.  The top is a metal flake green and red with hand cut grip tape.

 

Lots of thanks to shout out here – First, Wes for designing such a cool ass deck, Thanks Wes!  Buddy Carr for selling me the deck.  Daddies, Muir, and Black Diamond Shops for getting me all the hardware…And last but not least, a big thanks to all of you for tolerating all of my questions, and giving me fantastic advice!

Here's mine.  Holey front truck, Indy 215 on the rear.  ABEC 11 70mm ZigZags.  Great rider!

Nice!

Where did you get the Holey trucks?

Green Tail Bone would look good.

Got the truck from G&S/Sk8Supply a few years ago.

If you've got a green Tailbone, feel free to send it to me!

Green would look good, but the Red/Orange picks up the accent color of the deck nicely. Black would look good too

I see the red in the banner now.  I didn't see that before.  I was thinking the green Tail Bone color is pretty close to the green color in the leaves.  And I think Foley is probably about ready to blow a gasket with our lame comments about his choice of Tail Bone color.  Soooo, getting back to the germane, it's a great setup without regard to the Tail Bone and probably skates really well with that Holey truck in the front.

Thinkng about chaning up my SP1, maybe going with Indy 215, my 71 mm Bennett Gators, 1/2 in wedgy & 1/4 shock up front, and 1/2 flat & 1/8 shock in back. Or maybe really get crazy and do an Indy in the back and leave the Paris 180 up front. Still mainly a street cruiser & small hill bomber. Any thoughts?

Let me add that there is nothing wrong with the current set-up of Paris on front & rear. I just find that with a 21" wheelbase it's still fairly whippy on the ass end, even if I flip the hanger and put on double barrel or harder bushings. Actually, before I change it up I should take advantage and put some smaller slippery wheels on and go sideways a few times. Anyways, I will ultimately put an Inday on the rear, now I just need to flip a coin on keeping the Paris up front or wedge an Indy
