boarderaholic Hahaha. Yeah, from what I've heard any hills worth riding is at least a good half hour away no matter how the cookie crumbles. I have a friend who lives in Fort Collins who is into super serious DH.

Kryptonic Classic 76 (Set of 4)

Nivek I dont really know anyone, its stupid, but then again I've only been riding a couple years, one year was primarily transportation too. And the first year I was in Fort Collins, which has either mind blowing hills, or no hills, so I went with the no hills. So I'm not nearly as good as I should be for 2 years.

boarderaholic *gasp* I'm so jealous. So so so very jealous. How familiar are you with the guys who skate in CO?

Nivek I'm in colorado springs, but soon to be breckenridge, so my skating will be put on hold for 5-6 months.

boarderaholic They are delicious wheeels. Except that they too die pretty fast. But yeah, it's Loaded, so I'm not holding my breath for them. I was actually linked up to a place that sold old 'thane Kryps. If you want, I can try to hunt down the link again. I do have to warn you the shop is in Europe, so you'll probably end up paying out the ass for them...oh, Pink Powerballs are absolutely fun freeride wheels too. Considering the duro, they drift so well. I guess you could say, it's like buttah!!

Where about's do you skate?

Nivek Oh if I could get my hand on some old krypto's...actaully I'd give my hand for some old kryptos. Yeah I know O-tang has a freeride wheel in the mix, but, its loaded, they say this winter, I hear 2 years. I have wondered about the krypto shape hawgs though. Maybe I'll just end up picking those.

No worris Dol...happy that I could help....by the way was it you who is into The String Cheese incident? I think they are great.

I work up at Mt Hood meadows and a few years ago the band was playing a gig in Portland....anyhoo we were all informed that they would be on the mountain, so I was able to meet the band. It was very cool.

I think Bataleon boards are going to rock your world and blow your mind!!! enjoy

I am sure T Dakides has a quiver of boards... she rips and has a house in Tahoe.... I saw her years ago at Squaw and ran into her at her condo near the place we were stayin. I would bet though that the board she rides park with is stiffer than the Violenzia given that she is a pro and all.. a 2 on a scale of 6 is pretty soft.. good luck shred the gnar gnar.
Eh, don't worry about it. It's not a do or die situation...! Haha!

Slightly set back directional twins are the bomb for a one board quiver..now if you can afford a few boards?? the equation changes.
