combine this with a Giotto which is a rather long plate and room to move is rather limited.
Im running a 170 on a size 9 bont and is by no means a skateboard but
i had to cut Yep [Grinder] 20mm off the front of my new Giotto so it could go where i wanted it. Purists will cringe
I love my setup but have not skated another type of boot other than the bont.

Spencer's Giotto was in the milling machine right before I moved ...but not 20mm worth.....
