MBNEF 43: Mostly But Not Entirely Flat deck

That’s actually not a coincidence. I deliberately shaped the tip to resemble a snake head. I’m glad that somebody recognized it. I initially wanted to name it Python (after my favourite programming language) or maybe Pyboard or Pydeck (which most people who don’t program in Python probably wouldn’t get). I rethought the name idea later but the tip shape remained.

we all love dave

can we continue with the name theme though
john is a reliable and trustworthy name. if a deck was called john i would know it wouldnt break on me. john is just something you can rely on

Of course it should be named “the Black Mamba”

I tested 7" Evolve wheels. Those are a good fit.

Wheel bite is not a problem at all with these cheap TKP trucks. I believe 8" would still be OK.

RKP may need a riser, or wider hanger, or smaller wheels.

I’m looking forward to putting the deck on something nicer. SR TKP in raw would be nice or the new makerx trucks if I can get a set. I think I’ll go with a black and raw color scheme.
