I'm pretty sure that the mbs matrix trucks use the normal skate truck bolt pattern to fix it to the board, but I'm not entirely certain. I'm not sure what you mean about the wheels, but the hold in the wheel for bearings is 28mm, ie the outer diameter of mountainboard wheel bearing is 28mm, and the ...

Trampa Flexitrucks.

I was looking on the trampa website and found they sell these Flex Bridges . They're basically an oblong piece of trampa material in 11-13ply to stiffen the centre of a deck. I was wondering if they would work as a Trampa flexi-nosno truck thing, like the ones Brennig has on his nompa. I just Don't ...

I'm quite tempted to get the trampa ones because you can just strap it on, and you don't need to take off your boots and trousers to put them on. It may not have a plate at the coccyx, but it does have a tonne of padding there.

Well it took me a while to find some axles, and then i had to straighten them at work on the fly press but that only took about half an hour. The bushing holders took my the longest to make though. I made them at college the first time and when it came to drilling the 35mm hole for the bushings my t...

That sounds interesting. I can see how it would help the stability of the ride, maybe even decrease speed wobble. if i were to send you my wheels, then how long would you reckon you'd have then for?

Also how thick should i make it, or is that something that can be changed to adjust resistance? and finally where would b...

it looks like i can send it to you for about £13, and i could sell you the eggs and 2 of the top/bottom hats for £7, so £20 overall. But it might be cheaper to get them where you are.
