My little vanity project is nearing completion with the Paris 180 trucks and Hawgs Mini Monster wheels arriving, from SkateDeluxe, for the gorgeous Hackbrett balance deck.
… and another lesson learned- remember to order the bolts to attach the truck to
the board! Arrghhh. My fault, for forgetting; great service as ever from SkateDeluxe to feel sorry for me and just send some. Thanks guys – great service.
Went with the translucent red Hawgs Mini Monsters purely for the looks, which is not really a sound reason, but they will be fine for my easy cruising on this board. This is a show board, for pavement skipping into Richmond and hanging out at the local cafes by the river – let’s be honest here 🙂
Interestingly, I could not find a supplier in the U.K for the Mini Monsters, hence, got them from Germany, but the on-line service, cost and shipping were no different to other good UK suppliers.
Happily use again. My experience so far is that the Dutch and Germans markets, compared to the UK, seem to have a slightly broader range of parts and boards available to them. Lots of great stuff available from UK retailers, just less of the rarer and small-time made stuff, especially German and Austrian made decks.
