And so it begins


#1

OK, so I know these are, at the moment, just the components to make a regular longboard, but these just arrived today from Germany and all of the mechanics/electrics were dispatched from DIYes earlier today :slight_smile:


#2

whats the round orange thing above the wheels?

@Ragnar - look forward to it!

Why flex 3?


#3

Not sure which is better - looking at the excitement and potential of a new project or seeing the final result! Have fun!


#4

which one is the stiffest?


#5

flex 1 afaik


#6

?whats that?


#7

Flex 3 probably because that’s what Boosted uses.


#8

bearings I presume


#9

“as far as i know”…


#10

think the bearings are in the tube… think the round thing may be grip tape cleaner, which i’m trying to track down!


#11

could be bearing cleaner


#12

The orange thing is just the tube that the truck bolts come in. A nice touch from SkateDeluxe is that they give you 8 black bolts and 2 extra gold bolts if you want to add a highlight somewhere - not sure if I’ll use them though.

Flex 3 as you can’t get Flex 1 or 2 in 38" (at least, not here - supplies are limited over here in the UK), as @Pantologist says, it’s what Boosted uses and finally, according to Loaded it’s the right flex for my weight (with or without the electrification components).


#13

cool! thx!


#14

Nop those are bushings


#15

Nope, it’s a pack of truck bolts :wink:


#16

Assembled… Probably everyone’s seen this configuration before.

Waiting for delivery of the good stuff now…


#17

It looks so nice.


#18

Looks great!!! Looking forward to seeing your build.


#19
