what do you guys mean, I scrolled through the mbs shop several times and didn't see anything listed as "fivestar," the tri spokes are still there too.

I was going to ask about the new matrix 2 trucks. I plan on picking up some of those long board wheels though, they are much cheaper than xt wheels or abec-11 100mm (or close to) my experience skating 100mm scooter wheels tells me I'll have flat wheels in a few months time, however the curve isn't a...

I saw these on amazon, reviews said they worked great for sudden impacts, not so good for skidding across pavement, also some had a problem of slipping, as @tatumvay said.

so i've picked up a 5.2 Neil Pryde sail, 1 matrix pro, 2 ats w/ 4 wheels and a break, yet I'm still not sure about a board. I'm broke now, but if I knew what I was looking for I could start planning. I should probably look for a helmet too, I haven't had enough concussions to think I don't need one....

update, I got a hold of a pro matrix and a pair of ats, they both use the oldschool skateboard bolt pattern, I assume vectors do as well.

I don't have a deck but I know there is all kinds of wobble spinning trispoke wheels on the trucks, pulling the trucks from center. Maybe it disappears magically once trucks are mounted to a deck, I doubt it. May I suggest lead tape to the inside tread covered in duct tape to keep the lead off the i...

usa wanted vector trucks, v5 breaks

I've been curious about vectors, they don't have to look wonderful, and no one who listed them has responded.
If you have one or two laying around and are willing to make a deal send me an email. bobbieturcotte@gmail
I'd also be interested in a cheap v5 break kit.

out of curiosity and relating tto the title " Choosing shocks," does anyone know how the eolo and scruub egg shocks compare to the mbs ones? they seem to be the same shape and slightly cheaper, not that the $3 much matters. Anyone know how the durameters compare between all 3 brands? Do they at leas...

I read in the coments some of you using the 10 inch wheels, I thought that would be these. I found some measurements for them, they are 5" tall x 3" wide, 3.75' wide or 4.25" wide, so how wide are mbs rockstar 2 hubs?

ground industries raptor bindings

So I got some raptor bindings, couldn't find anything on them here so I thought I'd post some photos so it might help anyone else. They came with 4 rubber bumpers that are each different in shape to be used as risers for different parts of the bindings if needed.

Hey, I got some Ground Industries raptor bindings, and I'm not sure what to do with the 4 rubber pieces they came with, seems like there should have been 6, and that they should have been the same shape. Can anyone explain this?

I'm sorry no one else has responded, just measure your truck axle diameter, and check the inner wheel diameter, it should be 22mm http://shop.mbs.com/accessories-234/mountainboard-wheels/bearings.html
