my 2 cents
: After years out of the pool, I am building a new set of skates and getting back in. Anyone with any ideas/suggestions for set-ups let me know. Got wheels and Boots and am looking for Truck/Plate suggestions. I used to run Sure Grip plates with Tracker Freestyle trucks-haven't been able to find those around.
: Thanks

COOL!!! Couple ideas coming at you...

Cut snow skis for plates and attach Ace mid-Track skateboard trucks (approx 109 mm truck width). Additionally, you might want to fashion some sliders to attach to the plate, in-between the trucks, for sliding rails and coping.

Skis are flexible, strong, resilient, and absorb shock that metal plates would not absorb. Skateboard trucks last a long time and grind really well.
