New board

Well, my Mode Pool board has reached the end of it’s useful life and so it has been retired. I have one remaining, but I’m saving it. To my knowledge it is now one of a kind.

I pulled the trucks and wheels from it and put them on this Super-8 deck that I’ve had for a while. It was part of my equipment hoarding during the early days of the pandemic. 8.5 wide”, 14.5″ wheelbase. The Indy 159s fit it perfectly. 54mm Bones STF 99a. The setup feels really good. 1/4″ may not seem that much larger than my 8.25″ Mode pops to a non-skater, but a quarter of an inch is a significant width difference.
