It's not too bad once you get the excel formulas for mm conversion and the wheel widths, but it is pretty geeked out. I must be a closet statistician. I decided to do it when peeps were talking about a narrower truck turning better. I'll add the Dubs later tonight.

I just added the Dubs.

 

Queue some of the differences are in the hanger width. I don't know why they call them 129's when their website says they are 127mm hangers?

 

No biggie, give or take a few speed washers!

Sooo, what have I learned from this exercise? I'm running Krux the man and mini dubs on my Griffin. I'm going to swith to Webb Mike Smiths with Dragons, and I'll have just about the same overall width, but with a narrower truck.

 

We'll see how it turns...

Now that is something I have needed in the past and I'm sure in the future.
2ndMomma needs to put that as a pull down menu addition to the BDS store.

Just bumping Fletch's question above...

It's something I've been thinking about too. My guess would be that the narrower truck with the wide wheel will be a better turner...

BTW, I've started taking some measurements on decks to do exactly what was raised earlier in this thread: get decks widths both at the front and rear trucks so that a chart of them could be used in conjunction with the truck/wheel width chart, especially in terms of mixing trucks (like a 169/215 combo etc). I'll post my starter chart up when I get it going, and then maybe others could contribute data.
