I got the purple one and it's very vibrant. It rides incredibly smoothly. I used this board loads last summer and I will again this summer.
Most Penny copies are bad quality and have very bad trucks, but this has great trucks and carves very nicely.
My only complaint is that when I got it out of the garage to ride it a couple of days ago I saw that the pivot cup on the front had nearly disintegrated and the back one was split in some parts (those who don't know what they are - they're a small rubber cup that goes in a hole in the truck base and a spike from the hanger goes in it and it springs back to its straight position). They are usually made of rubber but the Indy's are made of plastic, so I will have to go to my local skate shop and replace them, but that's a fairly cheap job. Other than that I love it. It has abec7 bearings, the same as a Penny, and it goes very fast. The spare wheels are a real bonus too.

The "mini longboard" does what it does. Its small board make it lightweight to carry and agile in city enviroments. Rolls great on smooth surfaces and can be ridden on bumpy tarmac in parkways and so on if you have the balance for it!
But the skateboard, because of its price, is just okay. The wheels barely spins if you spin it by your hand. I had too loosen the wheels on all 4, as a first timer, learning to ride for the really first time ever even i knew that i had to loosen the wheels. After this the board rolls much better but it is really not recommended cause the board starts to wobble even more than it does because of its tiny surface.
But i learned to skate with this and i have yet to fall off it! I have ridden this for about 3 months, now and then. I have not done any changes other than loosening the wheels and its holding up great, for a first timer, the price and lightweight makes this a great buy!
I instantly noticed the vibration common with small hard wheels which i didn't enjoy. And that the wheels didn't spin as freely as my longboard wheels making me have to push more often.
I would say that they could have fitted the board with softer wheels for a better cruising experience. The trucks where pre-tightened nicely and had me carving down the pavement without loosing control.
The bearings are OK. Even though they say abec7 they do not spin as freely as I hoped for. The board is light and well made. The wheels are strong but too hard for a small cruiser.
Delivery: Very good, long before I expected it, packaged well.
Conclusion: I would say for a first skateboard its perfect, or if your looking for something to play around on its great, but for me the experience could have been better. Although Iv been skating for over 15 years so the indy board is up against strong competition I will be buying softer wheels and better bearings.
