If Newton's can't get you some in Sickboards in the Netherlands do the Seismic ones at a whopping 71 euro but also Bear (Landyachtz) ones for a more reasonable 21 Euro: http://www.sickboards.nl/en/bearings/3488-seismic-tekton-ceramic-bearings-10mm.html# http://www.sickboards.nl/en/bearings/751-bear-...

Longboard wheels on my ATB?

6900 are apparently what you need. http://www.silverfishlongboarding.com/forum/longboard-skateboarding-wheels-bearings/152839-10mm-skate-bearing-id.html Would appear to be widely used but more expensive than 608's. m Let me know if it works. Surf Rodz trucks are 10mm and they sell bearings as well. ...

You might have to look outside the skate scene. If I remember correctly a "typical" 608 skate bearing is 8mm inside and 22mm outside. I can't remember what the outer measurement is on a ATB bearing. seismic used to do 10mm tekton skate bearings for downhill. You used to be able to get 10mm skate tru...

You might have to redrill and or wedge/dewedge to get the angle you want but Trampa do 10mm trucks and bearings.

Should be relatively straight forward.

GI Flight

Not mine and I don't know the seller but I'm guessing GI stuff must be running out soon.

Dirt Luge? Could be an idea. Have you seen the steering system on a kite buggy? Essentially two bars off the front wheel with a strap over the top. Stock that on the front wheel and that would sort the front end out. Not sure if the deck would be big enough to lie down on. You'd need a wider axle on...

I was interested in the luge aspect. I know someone over here who is a board builder but also makes luges. Some are on traditional trucks some on axels but all are steered using leverage and braked in the traditional manner al la foot. I was wondering if the kart style offered any advantages? I gues...

I have seen a similar video with street skaters. The concept of a water park (especially a closed one) is not well known over here but I'd imagine that as long as you could fit a board in the flumes and slides it would have massive potential. This is the one I meant: m But then I also found this one...

What's the idea of the gravity cart? Do you lie on it street luge style or do you sit up in it?

Without wanting to spoil the surprise ahead of you we do specialise in a certain level of dick headed ness when we are abroad.

Boarders are a different bread of dickhead.

If you think we are all dickheads you'll be pleasantly surprised at how charming and quintessentially English the stag parties you come across are.

Ski tracks and map my ride so I don't expect it to be too accurate and that was on a road with highly inflated tyres. Perhaps I should have said that was a maximum? No idea what it is on grass because I won't carry the phone with me because I fall over all the time. I guess mountain board is probabl...

20-30 mph is about the what I ride on a longboard and 20 in the mountain board. I would go faster but there isn't enough gradient around here.

In reality that's probably about the most people ride as a general figure. Sure people double it but how often do they do that?

Come on over to Essex any time and I'll show you the basics. If you want to learn properly Essex Kite Park will teach you with their gear.

If the forecast is looking reasonable for the Bradbury Clumps DH remind me and I will chuck a few kites in the car.
