Oh really..whoa..hold the press..new intelligence just came in   lol..just fu*kin with you man. We all good

Paying extra for looks/performance modefications doesnt make em better bang for buck than TDLB "indys" with WCs over chemistry trucks tho, which kinda was the initial question at hand here and just my personal opinion. Others might not agree and thats fine..

I gave you a link to the one you want at the beginning of this thread

here it is again but some one bought it.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TECH-DECK-Fingerboard-Longboard-Black-Label-Pinstripe-/251827767998?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3aa21acabe

notice the optional grip tape in the package... that's how I know I got the right one.

Why not get chemistys? They aren't bad and they have a lot of choices

IM not sure if they do them in 32mm but all the pics I seen are 29mm and that is one reason I would say go with stock TDLB Indys.

If they are 32mm trucks with the Indy base plate... then I would go with Chems over TDLB indy. imo..

If the Chems don't have the indy baseplate.... then the TDLB indys are the way for sure cause the base plate is really what makes it.

maybe a 32mm Chem hanger on indy baseplate. cheers

Couch982 is on point! TDLB hangers are also good to go straight out the box, and with a nice set of Witchcraft bushings anything else is total waste of cash in my opinion. I guess I just dont have the taste for random modefied and rebranded china wides. But sure, if it floats your boat and you are willing to spend the 20 euros for the modefied china wides go right ahead..

I got a set of Chemistry's a while back and they are 32mm, nicely shaped but with plain, not Indy, baseplates. I really like them, the shaping is lovely (and far superior to red wolfs c4s, which is another source of shaped tdlb's). I decided to get them because I was sick of getting the wrong tdlb trucks online and none of the local stores stocked them. It is a pain in the arse getting the right tdlbs as tech deck have a deceptively wide range if products and a lot of ebay/amazon sellers send out at random :/

Bakko, could you pm me those links too please? I could do with a new set of trucks happy

I've always loved chemistry trucks, the shaping on them is really good, way better than anything I ever used to make, but the critical flaw with the ones I've had/used is that the hangers fall out really fucking fast..

just my .02 though, when you shape TD hangers that much, you're bound to de-stabilize the hanger. I've gone back and forth between pulling the hangers out and JB welding them back in, or just polishing the trucks with a nail file and low grit sandpaper, maybe shaping down the mold marks and the edges slightly but not changing the core design. That seems to be the common denominator in axels falling out across different brands/models of trucks I've seen reshaped. (Including my own lol)
