Re: I just ordered an Unlimited PS... got a question

Hello, I ordered a Roe Unlimited PS last week. I've got a question. On the site it states the wheel base is 20"+21" which I'm guessing is due to two sets of mounting holes in the back? Yes? From the picture is just shows on set. I saw no option to choose which one so I can only assume it's adjustab...

I have an S9 pintail as well. You're not going to get very far in slalom with that unless you have room to practice SGS or GS.

For seismics I would get 130mm. For Trackers I would get 129mm but you could use 139mm. I think 150mm would be too wide for a board that skinny usless you are talking about Randals which are measured by axle length instead of hangar width.

You wont be able to use the grippins with the seismics. The smaller seismics don't accept centerset wheels. Sideset wheels like Flashbacks or offset like cambrias or avalons will work though.
