Making BC wheel plates

im gonna make a BC wheel and I would like help on sizes for the foot plates.

ie. How long, how high, if im using a 14mm axel how big a hole do i want, what metal.

Yeah I know most of those things above can vary but just put a good size.

Also Once the plates are made how do you attach them to the wheel??

Thanks

15mm hole should be about right. the rest is kind of preference and you should probably just measure your shoe. long plates shouldn’t be too long that your whole foot is on it, but the majority of your foot should fit with more toe hanging off than heel. no idea for short plates.

as for the height you want to have it just bigger than where you the top of you foot would rest (for jumping)
also you could do what Spenser does and put a layer of foam and duct tape around the bolt so you can jump better and not kill you feet on the bolt
the height is really preference and shoe size

for short ones they are about 2.5 in wide and 3.5 in jutting out
the longs ones are about double that at 5 or 6 in

I DO NOT HAVE A BC, THIS IS ALL JUST APPROX.

PS. PM Spenser, he’s online fairly often (and I might be spelling his name wrong)
