The ultimate urban downhill board Answered

I was wondering if its possible to mount some mountain board brakes to some mountainboard trucks with normal wheels. Hell, you could even use some randall trucks. The reason I'm bringing this up is that in urban conditions you may have a rally nice hill.... that leads right into an intersection. I would love to add these to my latest bomber. Also, can you mount normal wheels on 15" mountain board trucks?

Let me know what you guys think.

If you want urban boarding with brakes, I think you need to try a Dirtsurfer.

Two-wheeled board with a rear calf-brake. Originally designed for tarmacadam use only, they've released an off-road version recently.

I've never ridden one myself, but I've heard good things. This site has some videos of them in use (the one that says "kitewing" doesn't include a kitewing, but it does include a traction kite).

What kind of "normal" wheels are you talking about? It's been about 7 years since I last rode a mountainboard.

Any kind of street suitable wheel, the bigger the better. Anything from longboard to scooter wheels and maybe bigger if possible. -butt

Anyone? Has anyone had any experience with mountainboard equipment at all? If so, please comment.
