So update on the few that have put in an order with me for a set: they arrived at the Taipei shop since yesterday, I’m picking them up today. For the people who are still messaging me for a set, unfortunately I’m at max allotment and max capacity for my free suitcase check-ins so it ain’t gonna work out… Sorry :sweat: I recommend waiting and seeing at this point anyways.

I’ll post more pictures when I get the hardware in a few hours.

Hey @jasonbhuynh you got a set and I got an Ollin recurve… Let’s build a monster :smiling_imp:

I’m down :rofl: maybe even a 4wd eventually if these hold up


#345

Ok, products procured. Will update with more pics when I get home. Two lucky people will be getting drives and trucks with a set of black wheels. Lmk if you wanna be one of them.

It’s been a fun ride! I’ll ship them shortly, then it’ll be time to wait for the results to start rolling in…


#359

oh wait, they come with wheels?

niice…this is just getting better by the minute.

not sure if it’s been asked but do you know what the duro is for those wheels?


edit, i’m stupid. it says 78a on the wheel, 97mm.


#360

Ha, yep. Next person who messages me about their order with me can choose either black wheels or the gray wheels. Otherwise you’ll just get gray ones :stuck_out_tongue:


#361

I’m curious how the axle is in that hanger. It’s said to be cast in there the complete length but how does it have those squares at the end? Are they the axle or another part? How do they end up squared w the hanger and are they fixed/cast into the hanger? Never seen that on an axle that’s cast all the way. They look like what is typically screwed into the hanger


#362

Look like the square is cast bigger and then machines to size, you can see the tool marks on the surface
