*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Default Skateboard trucks for skate park use

Hey all, I've got a girl on quads that is wanting to do more outdoor skate park stuff. Does anyone have a good source for skateboard trucks that isn't insanely expensive? I've looked at the Penny Trucks for her and they are just too expensive for her budget. They will be going on a 10 degree plate, so something that isn't too deep would help as well.

Appreciate any suggestions that you all may have. Thanks!

I like ACE00 trucks. They are not as big as some skateboard trucks...commonly referred to as mid-trucks.

Default wide trucks

I've never subscribed to wider trucks for quad vert. We have the equivalent of two boards supporting us so horizontal stability isn't an issue unless you skate crab-legged...which looks stupid anyway. Just running hardened axles to take the impact and softer durometer wheels has worked just fine for me. - my 2 cents.

Default wheel clipping

The issue with wide trucks is getting your wheels hit or interlocked. I also dont think the added footprint is worth anything at all.

Straight axles(wheel straightness is a big factor) no slop suspensions, edge control (a skater factor). Those are the main obstacles.

It helps to carve a slight edge all the time to have more stability too. Id try a 36 to 38 mm wheel as well. I love them so much more than the 44mm wheels.

Assuming I can find them, I have some wider axle trucks I could let you try out to see if they help.
If they do you keep them and pay me, if not you return them.
Let me know what plate it is. These trucks worked on a Nova plate which is near 10 on the KP angle
