The very 1st order I ever placed with F13 was for a Big Foot replica...It was the ultimate in Pig-boards and I loved what I got. Then last Summer I was able to actually check out a BigfootII at this surfshop and was impressed with the craftsmanship and especially the lightness of it. I understand why you guys dig'em, for sure!!!

HBO sent me a Dogtown Bigfoot II, i set it up with indy 215's and black death mini dubs, 1/2  wedge riser on front and 1/2 riser in back and i cranked the trucks way tighter then normal and i am still getting wheel bite on all four corners i  plan on getting khiro or bones bushings on the trucks and inverting the kingpins with grindkings any other suggestions?

Add another 1/8th under each truck, I get minimal wheelbite with mine and the set up is similar but I use Dub Cons.

@keithdp - I really like the way I set my BFII up, not only does it look good it does carve very well. I also use Khiro bushes they do make a huge difference to how a truck turns, especially Indy's. The stock Indy bushes are junk and they get removed immediately when I fit a new set to any deck.

 

FYI - Wedge riser goes with the thin end towards the outside of the deck if you want more turn.

Looks good so far! But would set up some harder wheels for parks, bowls,... Or is it a cruiser for streets? The cherries are uber-soft and slow!
And what are those lappers useful for? Never had some, 'cause I never saw any practical effect... Hangup-on-coping-prevention or something ?

I just set it up with  the Cherries to go to the banks for an old school sesh at the bumpy assphalt at the local school. It was fun, but I'm gonna put a vintage set of Sims "the Wheel II or some Ultra's Dubs or Dragons when I can get them.

As far as the Bird is concerned you're right... You don't hang up on anything  really!!!

Tony Hawk and many others used the Lappers in the80's and 90's

Peace, 

John

Just bought one. Once I get it I think I'll set it up like TonyB. Indy 166 up front and 215 in the back. I just wonder how it rides. It does look better with not so much overhang in the front.

If you have the willpower to not ride that, you sir are amazing.  I bet that setup shouts at you while you are sleeping.

Its a carving machine. Use a wedge riser on the front and flat 1/2" on the back. Its a fun board to ride.
