[017_zpscd981405] I setup it up 215's , griptaping it was a breeze with good quality perforated Mob. The art work is insane color and images pop just like and other BDS deck. The deck is great it's my dimensions and shape I like big boards ( that's why I'm here). Guy's and Gal's who run big BDS wheels might want a little riser (the 215's I used had freeride bushings in them so their soft) you can make them bite if you try. Setup with 57mm Rainskate's does not seem to have a bite problem with no riser.

which Rainskates wheels are those, they look really nice and the ones I have that I've ridden are sweet but just a little too tall at 65 mm for most of my set ups

Beautiful deck by the way!

Indy 169s, BD Dubcons, perforated grip.  Going with just 1/4" riser for now, which looks like it will be enough.

Nice grip job. So how hard is it to grip the beamer? I am guessing you start laying the channel 1st?

Yes- did the middle strip first. Found a BDS logo, photocopied and magnified, cut out as stencil, outlined the paper side of tape, then cut with exacto knife.
A few small dots on the deck to line up, and apply.
Done it to my last few boards, takes some time but worth it to me-

The channel of the beam just looks painful to grip without bubbles or wrinkles.

Yeah, and it's kind of gnarly too.  I was just looking for perforated grip that is wide enough for the deck and found this.  It's Cloud Ride EZ-Grip.  It's definitely coarse and is also epoxy coated, so it should last.  I think it will probably wear out my shoes really fast, though. 

I tried to stick down the channel area first, but really didn't have any trouble getting this grip to lay down on the first try, once I got it aligned properly.  (It's only 11" wide, so not much margin for error with this 10.5" deck).  Bottom line, I think the perforated grip does what it's designed to do.

The Beamer is such an incredible rider. Took JeffD's for a few laps at the Old Man Jam at Pier 62 Skatepark today. So rad, thanks Wes!

Can't wait to get this set up.Ordered all the missing components from Frank and some prism tape so it will be a few days. Based off of others, going to run 215's and some green/yellow JuJu's, and my normal reversed wedges.
