mbs bolt pattern?

Post by jackinator » Fri Jan 16, 2015 4:44 pm

last time I asked questions about specifications I got crickets so here a simple questioon. do mbs trucks ats and pro-matrix use the new school skateboard bolt pattern? if anyone is concerned I've read mbs wheels have a 22mm outer diameter just like skate wheels, so with thembs bearings I could use any skate or scooter wheels I like, even the 12inch scooter wheels, http://http://www.ebay.com/itm/TWO-FRONT-12-300mm-GREEN-MAG-WHEELS-FOR-SCOOTERS-TROLLEYS-GO-KARTS-ETC-/181641432171? side note any one know if 6900 bearing profile fits mbs wheels. with 10mm inner diameter and 7mm thickness

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 internal is 12mm. But if your using big skate trucks i think its smaller, probably 10mm. Hope this helps.

Yeah you can use 6900's they are the same dimensions as the 6800's but designed for heavier loads. I think standard bearings are 8mm thick but I doubt 7mm would make much difference, however it may slightly weaken the hub.

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.
