*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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 Need Wheels!

Hello! Short story of my problem is that I used to skate heavily when I was 7-14 then stopped. I'm now 25 and picking skating up again, but my old skates don't fit me anymore and everything on them is shot anyways.

I bought some R3's last week because I'm a starving college student without a lot of money. The wheels on them (Radar Caymens) suck sooo hard. I've been out of the skating loop for well over 10 years now, so I don't know what wheels are -the- wheels anymore.

I only skate indoors on a wooden rink. I occasionally speed skate on my quads, but I want a nice rec. set of wheels where, if I chose to, could start to learn to jam again. ... Wheels that aren't $100 though.

P.S. - I got fat so I need wheels that are good/grippy enough for 195lbs woman.

Sorry for the slow response. Get some Answer Fusions. I'm 230 and they ROCK.....
