Production Version Pictures

Post by Michael Stride » Mon Feb 09, 2009 6:08 pm

Happy to say picture of the production version are ready, these are of the 'RAW' version, where the machining lines have been used as a 'feature'. You'll be able to order them with the sandblast matt finish too, at extra cost. Anodizing will be available in a few weeks.

Things to note are that the axles are threaded left or right, so that the tendency will be to tighten, rather than loosen. The main advantage of this axle system is the way the bearings are held on pure axle, and because the speedrings are integrated everything fits 'just right'.

Next up are the front trucks....not long to wait...

Nice job - to have more great product options like this in a small sport is worth way more than what any of us will ever pay for the actual product - thanks Michael!
