Just so we get it perfect for you, please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

That's one of the articles covering what went down at what trusnow replaced.
The-House isn't much better. I've seen them sell 4 year old stuff as 2 year old stuff for a one year old markdown.

Everything I linked has a local location somewhere, so even though you're buying online you're still supporting a local shop.

Wiredsport is a great online shop but I'll let him tell you what they have that will fit your requirements.
Fuck the house. Selling shit without the year on it to trick fools into buying old shit.

at an 11 and 130lbs you will be fine on pretty much any 153ish as long as you're not riding narrow and straight angles.

twinsrule thanks for the replies. I'll check out some of those boards when i get the chance. I wear size 11 boots, should i be worried about getting a wide? I've heard that's getting close to the transition zone.
About the trusnow, i actually wasn't getting my prices from there, i meant to type the-house.com. I just checked out some reviews at trusnow. Just out of curiosity, what's bad about their site?
