    where do you buy the skateboards to replace the xtracycle snapdecks?

    I'm thinking about throwing a longboard on my xtracycle. I've noticed a few of you have them on already. Where did you buy them? I've found a couple places online, but if anyone has a place they recommend I would appreciate it.

    What's the max size you would put on there? I've seen a few boards listed that are 47.5" long which might be a tad bit too long.

    Any local skate shop will have them. I like Daddies board shop in Portland. They have a huge online store as well. Very nice people there.

    If you're going to replace your snapdeck, you want a minimum of a 35 inch wheelbase( if I remember right) or the wheels on the longboard will prevent you from snapping it down. Mine are all 45-47 inch long boards with one 55 incher

    Make one!

    The best skateboard I've ever owned was made from a piece of 1" x 8" solid oak plank. Get a plank, cut it out, run a router on the rails, stain/varnish/whatever, drill, apply griptape, bolt on trucks, off you go.

    The added benefit of a solid oak skateboard is that you can use it as a moving dolly at your final destination
