FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default truck upgrade - ultimate dominators?

Hi doc,
do you know what trucks could be used to upgrade some ultimate dominators? are there any roll lines that would fit? ie navigators...

I have never tried Roll Line parts. I have used the Snyder Super Deluxe trucks.

Yes that started life as an Ultimate Dominator. If you can scrounge up the Chicago pivots you can use the stock pivot cups.

thanks heaps Doc!
another quick one, would you happen to know the rough weight on a set of size 5's with the snyder mods? I gather they will be pretty light.

Can't help with numbers for the weight but I can speculate on the impact of the parts change. . I suspect it will be heavier. The Snyder trucks are forged thus denser and heavier than the stock parts. Steel pivot pins add weight. If you use the UII size cushion like I did that is heavier as well..

I like the way this sk8s better than the stock Dominator and that means the weight was not an issue.
