Re: HARDWARE DIY/MODS/REPAIRS THREAD
Measured at rear of pedal, what's the distance from top of foot board, to the bottom of hinge? So, the heel plate (extreme-rear of pedal), measure distance from the top of it, to the 'red' bottom plate, which the hinge sits on. Height of rear of pedal will affect action/feel.
Axis and Trick longboards are 12" front to back. The above measurement in question on the Axis long board is 3/4" with the foot board at a 24 degree angle. The hinge (pivot point) is usually placed at the 'extreme-rear' of a foot board. With the position of your hinge, its doubtful your getting the true feel of a longboard. Gusset's weight would also counter some action.
