Re: Helmet replacement

Just merged a couple of threads on helmet safety and replacement. Everyone should have a read above and check if your helmet is due a replacement. Keep your derby brains safe!

Wanted: Old wheels & bearings for Dropin

Hi All! This is a request from Hap Hazard who maintains our Dropin hire kit :) Tis the season to get new derby things, so if you have any indoor wheels or bearings that you no longer need Dropin could definitely use them to top up our kit and fix old skates. I am sure we could also do with any other...

Re: Why don't my wheels screech?

I wonder if your set up is effecting the pressure you can exert. Am I noisy becasue I have my trucks loose and cushions soft so can make good wheel to floor contact regardless of the angle of my foot/ankle?

Why don't my wheels screech?

Help :? I just want to be one of the gang and have screechy wheels like all the cool kids, but my wheels rarely make noise. I have tried all sorts of wheel hardnesses and different floors while doing plows and powerslides but no joy. Could it be my skating style or my plate setup? Could it be I just...
