Finally opening my first build thread after lots and lots of time researching, ordering parts, and lurking this forum. I’m still waiting on a lot of major components, but I have started to receive some of my parts so I figured I would start this build thread.
Since I’m still waiting on a lot of parts, I took the time to (somewhat badly) paint my Hoyt Puck, as well as swap on a more fitting color of paracord onto it. I’m most likely going to swap on a puck puck bruce case onto it down the line, but I’m actually pretty happy with the stock case for now.
As you’ve probably noticed, all of these parts are color matched in pink/blue/purple. The reason for this is of course Nyan Cat, the theme for this build. I’m planning on painting the edge of the FluxMotion deck, as well as the enclosure to match the theme.
Hmm, I was under the impression that they work similarly to a channel truck in that they have a 0° angle. Since the flux has angled tips like a mountain board, wouldn’t it work? I might be missing something here also, as this is my first build. I also just updated with the kv! I forgot to add that when I made the first post.
That’s another option I was looking at! I heard that channel trucks have a kind of “slop” in their movement, which is why I opted for the pkp’s. I think it’s totally possible that it doesn’t have a huge affect on ridefeel though, so I may very well switch to channel trucks down the line.
Pkp trucks are mountainboard trucks, in the literal sense. They shine offroad and aren’t really great on streets. They don’t turn well without bindings either, even on softer setups. You need the extra leverage to really turn.
