Help Needed

Post by Cumbriaaan » Sat Mar 21, 2015 10:01 am

For my 15th birthday I was taken on a mountainboarding course by my parents. I quickly got into it and for the next year I went to the local place where I'd done the course a few times a month, renting their boards, which had skate trucks and which I never had a problem with. This was until it was shut down at the end of that year, at which point I had also been bought my own mountain board. I tried to use it, and discovering that I couldn't turn properly and that I had nobody to ask about how to make it work, I ended up giving it up and starting to skate. This year I decided to give it another go, and knowing what I did from skating, I decided that I would just need some new bushings. I bought myself some Medium mbs bushings, but when I went to put them in today I realised that they're completely the wrong size for my trucks, and when I went to look up bushings for them, I quickly realised that there was literally no example of trucks like mine on the internet that I could find.

So what I'd like to know is what the hell kind of trucks are these? Where do I get softer bushes for them or otherwise how do I turn? :(

All help muchly appreciated

Thats an old Trampa G4s. I think you need nosno bushings, They're 35mm in diameter with a 12mm hole in the centre. Have you tried taking the bushings out to see if the hinge in the truck is stiff?

1- make sure your feet are centered on the board
2- loosen the bolt holding the bushing...not too much though...still need to hold them together...just not squeeze then too hard.
3- measure them let us know...maybe someone can confirm thay that are the same size as nosno bushings like mario said.

You could try getting in touch with trampa. Doubt they still make those but they might be able to help regarding size and durometer.
