Re: Spacers and Speedrings

Both me and Bam have had real issues with spacers in our rollerbone turbos - I lost a wheel during a scrimmage, and Bam only avoided this because she realised the nuts were loosening really quickly. I also found that the wheels performed much better once the spacers are out. I have since read (altho...

Re: Skate Geeks Assemble!!

I'm also avoiding anything with the Avenger plate as it hasn't been around long so no one's sure about their longevity They are based on the invader plate that has been around since the 70's though. With your healthy budget have you looked at Snyder plates? I did quite a lot of research before I go...

Re: Skate Geeks Assemble!!

I can get the boot and plate separately, but I've never mounted boots before and don't fancy starting on something this expensive. Paying for someone to mount them then adds to the overall cost. If you order the skate and plate through everglides they will mount it for free (or at least they did fo...

Ahh, the messages I have been trying to send had attendance percentages for rostering purposes in them, so think you have hit the nail on the head there!

Forum issue - can't send private messages

Hello,

I can't send private messages on the forum. When I click on send I just get taken to the board index page. I can send messages to myself, and my inbox/sent box both have space in them.

Any ideas?

Re: Bearings

I do! I was on super reds until I accidentally ruined them by cleaning them with water and not drying them quickly enough. I replaced them with ordinary reds. I noticed absolutely no difference in performance!

Re: Protech mouthguards

I have the new, slightly thicker version. I much prefer it to the original - it fits much more comfortably (I re-moulded my old one loads so am confident that this is becasue of the new design, not becasue my old one was badly moulded). You are welcome to look at it, or touch it even if you catch me...

Re: I wheely need some advice on wheels please...

I've upgraded to Sure grip Rebel AVENGER's now Good choice - you are joining a small (elite ;) ) group of us that are skating with an avenger plate. Small warning - I found this plate so reactive that to begin with I had to tighten the trucks right up and put on harder cushions to allow me to skate...

Re: Anybody thinking of purchasing a protech mouthguard?

Hey Ez, I don't think the 2.4mm ones come in 2 packs (at least not that I can find), and they are also more expensive than the original ones (£21.99 is the cheapest I've seen). I can order you an individual one at the same time I order mine if nobody wants to go halves on a 2-pack. I will probably o...
