*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default Is this a good way to start?

I just found these and thought that they'd be a
good way to find out if I want to persue a better setup.
I'm concerned that going with a 4 wheel setup will not be
true to an artistic set and also in the performance of the boot.
What say ye?
I'm quad skating now, fairly well, and have had inlines in the past.
I should add that I can pass these on to my wife, who will hopefully continue
to learn to skate.
If I do upgrade to a better artistic setup, this will be a decent
recreational setup for me or for her?

Hi Ballistic Biliards,
A good person to ask would be FireFly. She does inline artistic skating. She frequents the Artistic Forum, just above this Inline Forum. Best of luck.

You're very welcome.

I think you will really enjoy entering inline artistic skating, if that is your intention. If it isn't your intention then I am sure you will still be happy. Please note that an artistic setup is far different than a regular inline and not near as fast, but it does give much greater control.

From my point of view, this is what I like and dislike from that setup. It looks like you have a rocker or pivot point on the second wheel from the front, which I think is good for manuevers. I am not fond of the the hard boot. But that is from a person who only did a little on inlines and my experience on inlines is very very limited. So take that for what it is worth.

Default the wheels

I'm not real fond of how far out the back wheel is.
The boot is easy enough to replace.
I'm looking at this setup basically to do some art and slalom stuff.
It may be completely wrong for slalom, I have no idea.
Thanks for the input Ancient.

Default Youtube video clip

Hi,

My name is Arthur Lee and I'm the designer of this skate !

There is a video clip on youtube that might give you some hint. Check it out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cd22VUnhmU

This skate is not designed for slalom skating at all. It's for beginners (entry level as of the skate's name) mainly for artistc inline skating, and recreational inline skating occasionally.

Cheers!
