Mike's TS setup?


I've been getting into slalom here in the deep south (GA) the last 6 months. Currently have a hybrid and GS setups (not SB's). I think my next purchase in going to be MM TS Pro Model. Wondering how Mike has his set up... trucks, wedging...

Re: Mike's TS setup?


Good question...enquiring minds want to know??

Here's the skinny...I ride mine at 17.5 wheelbase with a Radikal front truck wedged to 15 degrees (thanks Khiro Bob) and a Tracker Mid custom offset in the rear. I don't know the exact width of my trucks as they're not factory, but I can say this...my wheels basically are no wider than my deck. For wheels, I ride Seismic Hot Spots in the 86 duro up front with the 82 duro in the rear (thanks Dan) and maybe the most important link in the chain, the bearings. I only ride Rockin' Ron's Ceramic Rockets. I think that about covers it. Bushings are pretty much stiff in the rear with the rear truck so tight is barely moves under the "wheel-to-palm hand-on-the-rail" pinch test. My front truck is set up very loose giving the board an overall loose feel.

I guess that's it...

You forgot to mention that you put N'Sync stickers all over your board?

TS deck just arrived here in UK. I've set it up ready to ride but will no doubt have to tweak it.

Mike what sort of wedge do you use on the back?

I use a custom made wedge in the rear. I don't know the degree measurement although I think it is pretty close to 7 degrees and goes from blade thin to about 1/2 an inch...make sense?

Ok Mike. I've been riding the Maysey TS deck for a while now and need to tweak it a little more. It's such a great deck for pumping. I was using it only for slalom but just discovered the joys of pumping it through town as well.

My question is this. How much flat riser do you put between the wedge riser and the deck? 1/8, 1/4? I'm riding 70mm so have to put something there as the deck has no wheel wells and it would bite.

I'm gonna answer this one for Mr. Maysey...

With the way we ride em'...our slalom decks don't need wheelwells!

Basically, the optimum setup is Low Rider style!!!

Maysey rides his decks with tight offset back truck...with a flat 1/8" plastic riser...or a 1/4" for taller wheels...

And for the front...Maysey rides em' real high up there...but, not too high and too wedged-or the trucks get overly tippy feeling...me and Mike put 1/2" hard plastic under a standart SB/Khiro 80a wedge...

NO WHEEL BITE EVER!

Having the front higher also allows you to dive into the cones at a sharper degree angle...

Hope this stuff helps.

posticon Re: Mike's TS setup?


Thanks Davo.

I did have a half inch riser and standard wedge at the front coz I found for myself that made it turn well. But then looked on here and Mike says he rides 15 degree at front so thought I'll try it but think I liked it better before. He also mentioned dewedging the back?

I'm gonna go back to half inch with less wedge and see what happens and also ride the back flat. I'll file a report lol

I love the Maysey deck. It's a lot of fun.
