Quad 11 Chemical Imbalance with Tracker 184's amid BDS Black Death Mini-dub cons. With Bones Super -Swiss.Angled risers. Killer set-up. I was a 12" man for a while , but I really dig the quad 11. I think that the quad concave is incredably functional. Super shape.

The 11 is a nice shape. However... trim a 12 down to 11 and go for a ride. Wider tail, more real estate for your front foot... yee-hah, "Goin' for a gnarly ride!"

Here's my Q11 setup, put together w/wisdom from my BDS bros:

Chemical Imbalance
Mellow Yellow DubCons
Indy 169's w/Khiro aluminum insert bushings - med-hard yellow in front, hard black in back (how DC/AC!)
9/16" risers
Rockin' Rons steel

Webb Mike Smith with Khiro insert bushings (red front, yellow back), Ultrathane Dragons, steel Rockets, 1/2" soft risers and BDS grip.  This is the best board I have ever ridden, but I wonder if a wider tail would suit my big-footed self better.

Thanks Nepps!  I have some Black Death Dragons on the way, which should help improve this setup even more.  Hopefully, I can handle the Black Death formula and won't be sliding out.  The smooth crete park that I skate gets pretty dusty and harder wheels do have the tendency to break loose.  Only one way to find out, I guess. 

 

How do you have yours set up now?  I know you need bearings, but how is the other stuff?  The Webbs are hard enough to come by, and with the shipping expense to S.A., might be too hard for you to score.  But, the Webbs do turn a lot like Indys, so if you can get your hands on some Indy 169s with some of the aftermarket Indy bushings (red-soft, orange-medium, black-hard), you should be good to go.  The white Ultrathane wheels are nice and grippy and maybe soft enough for the rough crete you ride over there?  Otherwise, you could try the black 90A mini dubs (still available in the BDS store - but you would probably want Indy 215s with those) or the 85A lime green Dragons.  I think the 80A Sonic Red Dragons (also came in blue) are also a great choice for rough crete.  I have been using them a bit on smooth crete and they have good speed for a soft wheel.  And they are so smooth and quite, it totally freaks out the groms.

Man that is gonna kill with some Black Deaths!!!

 

Right now my deck is set up with Indy 215's and Gravity 80a Street G's. Great wheels, and the duro is about right for my crete, but I just need sharper bearings in there. I bought some cheap mini logos in the meantime I am gonna throw in there for now, and see how she runs.

 

I spoke to TonyB and he suggested some Sixtracks or Tracker 184's for this deck.( I'm a tracker fan!) I also have a GHII that nneeds setting up so I'll prob get Sixtracks for that, and some 184's for the Q11.

I have some 2nd hand MY Dubs I just picked up off Silverfish today on their way so they should ride good on either the sixtracks or 184's. Also got some other goodies on the way from some uber helpful BDS bro's ( Skatefink and HDO, you guys rock!! ) so I'll see how they run when they arrive. I need to figure out the best formaula for my Rough bowl, and then buy from there. Some serious testing gonna be done in the next coupla weeks!!! 

 

I'll have a look at those other suggestions for wheels and see if I can find some 2nd hand somewhere. The dollar exchange is a kiler right now so I'm picking up what I can where I can 2nd hand.

Really looking forward to setting up a board thats BDS through and through!!!

 

Thanks mate.

 

Nepps
