I have never liked 3 wheels setups of any kind on rough surfaces including 3x125. I use a 5x80 frame for my 3x125 setup. On a rough surface, I would much rather have the 5x80 instead of the 3x125. Just like bjvircks, fewer wheels equals rougher ride and a bigger chance for the wheels to take wicked detours on the edges of bricks or cracks in the road. Think of it this way, 3 wheels setups are essentially teeter totters that pivot about the middle wheel. If your skates are only touching the ground on the middle wheel while going over a bump, then it doesn't take much force to make your skate spin around by pivoting about that 2nd wheel.
