You can buy them only in the "real" store in Berlin and they're not on their website, I believe. happy If I misunderstood your question - let me know or sth. You asked "offline". happy

Yeah lol, I thought you were saying they sold them off the site, so anyone can order them.
But that really sucks that I would have togo to Berlin to buy them, not saying I wouldn't want togo there but it would be pricey very happy lol

If I could I'd own all of their ramps!! tongue


EDIT: you can contact big beudl personally threw Facebook, they'll send ramps anywhere

I've never had a "good" set of trucks. What makes YTrucks and BRR Trucks so expensive? I don't mind dishing out some cash for a nice deck...but I am not sure what separates expensive trucks so much further apart from China trucks

The design and the look, mainly. They're a nice addition to a set up if you've got the cash, but from my experience they don't really stand out as better. Sometimes they fit aftermarket bushings better.

If you compare Blackriver trucks for example to china trucks at least I notice a huge difference. The look of them obviously which is much nicer in my opinion. The bushings are better and you have many different options for bushings you can buy that are made for the trucks. The feel, Blackriver trucks are much heavier than china trucks which I think makes them much better because it gives you more control of your board. If you want to do like a high kickflip you can control it more and have it under your fingers and stuff but with china trucks the setup might fly away because it's much lighter. I've never really broke china trucks or Blackriver trucks but I know that some of my friends have broken the axel on their china trucks. The quality and durability is better on more expensive trucks obviously. Although the downside with Blackriver trucks is that the screw holes on the baseplates can sometimes 'strip' and like get bigger so that the screws don't fit.
It's basically the same for Ytrucks but why I prefer Blackriver trucks over Ytrucks is that Ytrucks are lighter than Blackriver trucks and the turning just doesn't feel as comfortable with Ytrucks as it does with Blackriver trucks.
Professional trucks are also made in different sizes as neztek said.
If you feel like you wan't to upgrade your fingerboard setup to the max I definitely advise you to buy a set of either Blackriver trucks or Ytrucks and I hope that this made you understand a bit better!

Thanks for the responses guys. Sounds like it might eventually be worth it to upgrade but I can wait until I have a little spare cash to play with

When you do you won't regret it,whether BRT's or Y's it may seem expensive but it is money well spent. happy

Me personally....I would never go back to china trucks. I feel like pro level trucks are way better. its kinda pricy but you have to look at it like an investment. you get a new deck every so often but for me I have had the same trucks for 3 years now.

China trucks in my past always have an axle pop out or get loose.

I have Ytrucks x4 and love them. love the Yz over TDLB trucks by a long shot and TDLB is IMO the best TD truck. I never had BlackRiver trucks before.. reason is I cant fit centralized bearing wheels on them.

so IMO. If you have fingerboarded for some time and know you will stick with it for a few more years. Its a no brainer..... Yz or Blackz...fow sho... bounce

edit: also I got a set of Ywheels in the past week to replace my oak rv wheels and once again IMO the Ywheels are worth it so far

Thanks. That's kind of what I was thinking...definitely seems like an investment. It will hurt dishing out that much cash for trucks but it will hopefully be worth it in the long run. Chrismas killed me financially. I might need to wait for my next bonus before splurging

^ you might think it will suck dishing out the money, but man once you have pro trucks you never have to look back again, you spend the money once and it pays off for itself, ill never use tdlb trucks again, i got brt 32s and i got x4s comin in soon, so honestly its worth the money instead of head akes.

Yo Guys,

I have nearly spent all of my Christmas money ( on new skate deck, converse, and a few Black River Ramps) and i have around £25 left, what options do i have for a 32mm deck with medium/high concave?

Thanks!
KEEP SHREDDING!

My only concern if I splurge and go from Blackriver trucks or YTrucks is accidentally stripping them. Is there any remedy to fix that?

Y Trucks don't have the same reputation for stripping as BRT's,but Black River sells base plates on their own or in a first aid pack I am pretty sure.They both wont thread if you don't change them too much.I have had my Y Trucks for over a year and they have been on heaps of different decks without them stripping I got my BRT's second hand and one of the holes in the base plate was already stripped but I have changed them to maybe 4 or 5 different decks without any other holes losing thread.

you will only learn about other peoples preferences when you ask brt or y. the only way to decide what feels better for you, is to try them both, if you get the chance to.
both are great trucks, if you prefer a lighter setup, get y's first, otherwise brt's.
