The problem with these is the fact that they don't have symeteical threading which means that there is the possibilty that the left side axle can unscrew while your riding.I'm sure it could be fixed with a bit of loctite on the thread.

Part of the bolt is machined to a smaller diameter, which, combined with the set screw (hole is visible in the cutaway picture), prevents the axle from unscrewing. In testing without the set screw system, we never encountered any issues; the set screw was added as a fail-safe to ease concerns some people still had. We have not yet tested with Loc-Tite on the threading. If you do see fit to use it, I recommend a low-strength version so as to make sure you can still remove your axles.

Price does not include shipping.
so what would average shipping be to Australia?
I knocked up the same design proto in about 3 hrs using manual milling machines.........3yrs ago.
No point whinging about who stole what idea and all that bullshit. It wasn't long after I came up with the idea I found out Carveboards have the same shoulder screw axles design, so I wasn't the first anyway even though I came up with the idea myself.
I had a product ready to go then faced production cost problems making them locally then wham, Stridie hits the market with yet another, very similar version. Doh!
dude do u have any of those left? i wanna race on one of them for the 2010 CHC
I raced them in the 2009 series all year !!! as a rear truck and they were AWSOME !! Fitz rules !!!!!!!! oh yeh
how tall are these trucks exactly sean?
Steve, (and anyone else) I don't have that information on hand, but I'll be sure to get it. For now you're welcome to email Wayne ( for this type of thing, though I'll be sure to post here when I find out as this will probably be a common question from an Australian forum, haha.

I don't have the trucks in front of me to measure, but my drawings show 58.5mm, bottom of baseplate to center of axle.

One test rider likened the ride height to that of a Kahalani.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, they're fully drop-through compatible. Should fit all templates, and unless you're running a really unusual setup, you won't get hanger bite.

So far as we've tested, they fit every bushing on the market. Reflex bushings are a tight fit and Venom Eliminators are extremely restricting, but they'll fit.
As listed on the Purchase page on the truck website, shipping should be around $12-17 USD.
