Retired London Rollergirl in Bristol- selling gear!

Hi!

I am a former London Rollergirl who just moved to Bristol. Even though I retired from skating last year, after 4 years of skating for LRG, I've finally stopped denying and accepted my retirement, so am selling on my gear. I have (as seen in the photo if it works):

To sell:

- Size 5.5 Riedell 195 skates- I wore them for about 2 years, scuffed toes (more on the right) but otherwise good condition for skating. They have aluminium plates. If you haven't seen them before, they have a low cut ankle and also are flat on the bottom instead of having the little heel. I wear a size 5-5.5 UK in normal shoes. £90
- Size small 187 elbow pads £10
- Set of 8 Atom Lowboy wheels (narrow)- blue, they're on the skates right now with decent but probably dirty bearings (Powell Bones Swiss 6 ball) in them. I got these after we moved to Earls Court so still in good condition. £20
- Set of 4 Atom G-rods wheels (NOT narrow)- pink £5
- Set of 4 Fugitives orange pushers wheels- orange £5
- Set of 8 Fugitives wheels- black £10
- 2 blue Riedell toe guards (never used!) £5
- 2 toe caps (also never used- you can see why the toes on the skates are scuffed!) £10

To give away- if anyone needs these things or if you have a league kit to lend things out:

2 skate tools
7 blue Sugar wheels (I can't find the 8th!)
7 red radar tuners wheels (Ballistic Whistle stole the 8th of this set)
Size small Anarchy wrist guards

I can come to a practice and bring things if anyone is interested, especially if you want to give the skates a go. Or, i live in Bedminster and work at UWE if that's convenient.

Also, completely unrelated but as I'm new to Bristol, if anyone has any good recommendation for a good hairdresser who's not too pricey, let me know! x

As for Hairdressers, the BRD hairdresser of choice is Esme of Harry Blades (0117 316 9455) aka our very own EZ Roller :)

Yep! I can't see how to edit the post but they're yours!

Also- I found the 8th Sugar wheel- it had rolled under the laundry! They're quite knackered from skating outside plus from when we practiced at Ally Pally so still happy to give them away- good for outdoor or rough surfaces though.

Yep!

I think I got mine when Nuke Leah did a group order from the US, then I lost them for ages! By the time I found them, I'd stopped skating!

Hello!
I'd be interested in the skates (and the lowboys if Agyness doesn't want them), and possibly the elbow pads. Would it be possible to try the skates sometime? I have Thursdays off so could come and collect them (or at a weekend), or maybe we could meet at a training session that suits?

Agyness has the lowboys so right now the skates are wheel-less but happy to have you try them out with your wheels! I'll send a PM about meeting up!

Ooh! Can I nab all the other wheels except the Lowboys and Tuners.

* 4 Atom G Rods, 4 Fugitives orange pushers & 8 Fugitives, please!

- I want to try out as many wheels as poss and being so cheap I might as well bag them! I live in Cotham, but can collect from Bedmo, or will happily pick them up from practise just let me know (£20 bargain!!) x

Cheers Dub xx
