Bump from the dead.  Well, I took a bit of a hiatus from theeve because I wanted to try out the Indy stage 11 (old habits die hard). They redialed their geometry and I wanted to test it out.  It was a bit weird I must admit - Going from the lightest truck (theeve tih 5.5) to damn near the heaviest truck (indy 149). I don't really have much to say about the stage 11 indys, they are the same indy goodness you'd expect.  I rode them for the past year but recently started riding the TiH again the past couple weeks. 

Here's my final 2 cents/conclusion:

Grinding: The TiH kinda sucks at grinding metal.  When they were new, there was no issue.  But once they started getting wear and grooves I started having problems. Sometimes its smooth as silk but most of the time it grinds to a halt.  Its such a bummer. Its not just beat up metal coping - Even on perfect mini ramp metal coping, a 50-50 quickly turns into an axle stall.  However, the TiH is absolutely the king of concrete grinding.  Nothing even comes close (you can quote me on that!).  Slappy grinds in particular, the TiH absolutely crushes curbs, with sparks to boot.

Turning: Like I said earlier, Indys turn great but the Theeve has a quicker, nicer turn in response and is much more stable during high speed hill bombs.

Weight: After riding Indy, TIAX and TiH, weight is kind of a moot point to me now.  I love the heavy, solid feeling of Indy but I also love the lighting quick reaction of the TiH.

To end this convoluted post, both trucks are awesome and have I have multiple setups now.

>> I dont really feel like embarrassing myself.

Just don't care about what other people may or may not think.
Just skate for the joy of it. Skate hard, try hard, fail hard Smiley

I do not know how it is where you are skating, but in my case the good skaters are supportive and give advices. Even if I could be their father...
So I am making more progress if some people are here. I just avoid when the scooter kids are showing up in mass...

It will push you if skate with others.

I am 37 and started again skateboarding one month ago, after a 20+ years break.

Go for it, you won't be disappointed !
Even without doing any trick, I was immediately so happy to just ride and cruise in the park/bowl.

One advice for the setup : personally I was not sure about my motivation so I bought a cheap complete at ~ $100, but after few weeks I felt limited by the poor bearings, and wheels that are way to soft and small for the big bowl I am skating. So I am buying better parts now.

If you were a decent skater, probably it is good to take right away a good setup. Maybe you should go to a skateshop and explain what kind of skateboarding you would like to do, they will have good advices regarding deck width, truck width+height, rising pads (or not), wheels compound and diameter, bearings ....

So, when exactly will I expect the King of the Road webisodes to be published for watching? Is there a specific date or do they get posted whenever the editor(s) get around to it?
