BTW everyone who has responded in this thread or expressed concern is now a moderator. Except for Flexiboard only because his amazingly awesome boards creations may make for a conflict of interest when it comes to spam deletion (but we still love him) Did I make the magic moderator cut too? How do ...

Think I found McCarver on FB. Sent him a message through my wife's FB account. If anybody else knows him please get him to contact me. This looks like him and wife. The kids are the right age. https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10600557_10152613986369542_4285886011818323704_n...

I think me may be a FB regular. I don't FB -- I'm a stubborn dinousaur. Love my computer but not much on the popular social media.
If anybody can make contact with him on FB ask him to PM me here at SD.

If somebody can make contact with McC. I'd be willing to consider part-time moderation to purge spam and trolls.
I sent McC a PM a few days but got no response.

Gald to see you're active BDirt I retired last week. I am a bit gun shy about riding street after a "seemingly nothing wipeout" landing on my left forearm guard caused my forearm and left hand to be numb for over 2 months. Could not even close a pair of fingernail clippers with my thumb and forefing...

I doubt there are any active moderators around now.
You'd have to contact McCarver about that. He started this forum.

McC was the driving force of this forum. With a new baby (another on the way?), he has/had other things more important to do. Also many of the older members stopped posting. I rode street and didn't have much to offer to the mainstream of this forum. Also, I haven't ridden in 2 years due to health p...

I have been using the 9.5 mm ATS trucks to make MB-LB street boards with larger ABEC 11 wheels.
Wanted to buy some 9.5 ATS from MBS a few weeks ago -- I like the wider tracking. Now all are gone. Whenever I come up with a use for one of MBS products, they discontinue it...

MBS no longer make ATS trucks with a 9.5 mm axle. They will be 12 mm. I suppose, now one bearing size for all and tougher ATS axles for entry level MBs.
I was going to make another Longskate-MB hybrid with Abec 11 Flys. But the 9.5 mm ATS Trucks were gone.

For surf-style carving, I found stiffer decks to be faster (snappier) and more responsive than decks that flexed. The flex seemed to use up the speed. The greater the distance between the axles, the greater the flex. Regarding deck height above the axles: In channel trucks especially (but skate truc...

Cheng Shin tubes with the correct stem shape/angle for MB hubs are hard to fin without seeing the actual tube. In the past I have used MBS tubes for 9" diameter hubs in Cheng Shin 8-3.00-4 tires without any problems. Your current hubs do not look like they are wide enough to mount carveboard or Chen...

Don't have time for thorough answers at the moment. Maybe this weekend. Where are you located?

Basically, tight surf-style cutbacks control the speed on my hills. I'd say my average carving speeds are between 10-14 mph. At 20 mph, I'd be coming in hot...

Don't buy Carveboard tires. You want these. They are the same only much cheaper. BTW the Cheng Shin 8-3.00-4 smooth tires make all the difference in the world for improving traction when tire pressures are adjusted properly. I have yellow eggs up front and orange in the rear. I found a little stiffe...
