As first, hi! I'm new here so sorry if this is not the right place to place this very happy

My set-up is:

Berlin wood classic shape
Bollie trucks (chrome)
Billie wheels (white)

This set up have I for around 1 year now (I stopped fnigerboarding for like 7 months) and I want to change it a bit. I'm thinking about this (click on this) trucks. Because of the low price and free shipping very happy Do you guys think if this are good trucks? Or do you think that I can better hold my Bollie trucks then...

Thanks in advance!

Link isn't working but if they are just China trucks then they are pretty much the same as your bollie trucks, unless you want a different colour because they both are basically the same

If you want to improve your setups I'd look into getting some bearing wheels, will make your fingerboard a lot smoother and fell more professional. A good second hand set will be fine, just watch out for overpriced China bearing wheels

Thanks for answering. Weird that the link isn't working (by me it works). Okay then I will get the pink trucks (I want a different color very happy ).

Thanks for the advice about the wheels. I will get some bearing wheels in the future!

the link is working, and yes, those are the same trucks as your Bollie trucks.
If you're looking for a cheap upgrade, try to find a Tech Deck longboard with regular trucks and use those.

As the previous people pointed out, yes those are China trucks.
I just want to point out that they come with the hard yellow Tech Deck yellow bushings. I'm not sure if you like those or not, but if not, you might want to try some better tuning. If you'd like ones with soft tuning then try here: http://www.brokenknucklefingerboards.com/trucks.html
They're slia little more expensive with shipping, but you save money on not having to cop up $3-10 on soft bushings.

And I agree with Jack that you might want to get some bearing wheels. You may think non-bearing is fine for you... but once you try them you'll never want to go back :p

Thanks for you answer. I didn't make a choice yet, but will order this weekend new trucks (and maybe new wheels). Thanks for your advice!
