Put the MBS trucks on the ~random board today. Rolls like shit :P Guess it really should get new bearings.

Scored this barely used from someone local.

Also found specs of the original board, they -arent- 8" wheels, nor are the trucks ATS12 , it seems!


Truck Type: ATS
Truck Material:Die-Cast Alum. Hanger and Base; Cromoly axle
Truck Color: Matte Aluminum - MBS Print
King Pin: 3/8" x 50mm (Cromoly)
Suspension: Bushing
Axle Width: 36.6 (c) / 14.4 (in)
Axle Diameter: 9.5mm
Hub Type: 5-Spoke
Accepts Bearing Size (OD): 22mm
Tire Type: Knobby (7") (~178mm)

The ATS12 trucks are a bit wider, not super alot, and with this narrow deck, i dont think it matters much. ( The deck is ~26cm on widest point, about 2cm shorter than my foot ;) )

Found these guys for sale cheap, this will be the beginning of my mountainboard build. Will take a while till i have them in hand.

There are ( i think) 'MBS ATS.12 Trucks' . Benefit of these MBS trucks is that they have a brake mounting next to each wheel which can be abused for motor mounts (or so the internet seems to agree).

The wheels are 200x50mm and look to be 'MBS Vine Tire' . Inner tubes are replaceable and are 8" in size. They take up to about 5.5 bar inflation.

No idea if i'm gonna use the included footbindings, but we'll see..
