I would like to get a deck from you, I just rode a board of yours today for the first time. I am hooked, Joe I has the deck and the sweetest set-up. I would like to know if you have any decks that I can get fast, I am flexable. I like the 30-32" and I am 240lbs.
Thanks Rick

Hi Rick, What kind of riding do you want to do? TS, GS , Super G ? Gareth is on Holiday right now but I may be able to help you find a deck appropriate for your weight. Thanks , TK

OK, you are needing a stiff flex Unlimited then. For the trucks contact Peter Verdone at his website peter verdone designs.com. Anyone out there have a stiff flex new style Unlimited for sale???

Hey TK, The Unlimited is a very sweet design. I tried Rob Sydia's the other day and it was just as sweet as yours the day you received it from Gareth.

Rode my Bonita today, It ROCKS.
Many Happy Pumps!

Claude - I am glad you liked the Unlimited, because I am absolutely loving it.

Your set-up recommendations on Sunday has made it even better!!!

I have to thank both Gareth and Gary Fluitt for all their help and advice in choosing this "Ultimate Slalom Machine"

Redrilling?

Post by David Baker » Sun Sep 26, 2004 2:14 am

Can a foam core unlimited be redrilled for a longer wheel base with out damaging the structural strength? I want 20-1/2" inside hole to inside hole.

Redrilling an Unlimited.

Post by Gareth Roe » Mon Sep 27, 2004 3:01 am

David-
You can redrill your RoeRacing deck so that it has a longer (or shorter) wheelbase with no problems. Just make sure that you leave at least 1/4" between the nearest holes and you should be fine. TK once redrilled one of his boards six times - front and back. And while he did fill in some of the holes with epoxy along the way, the board ended up having 48 holes in it! This is not recommended!!

Hope that helps!
