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.

Default 2nd pair of skate ideas?

I got a pair of dominion 65's on sure-grip x7 plates and pacesetter wheels.

I also got a very similar pair of riedell boots on sure-grip x7 plates with similar wheels. Bought this as a spare pair.

I mainly skate on well maintained wood rinks.

This pair could be better suited for a poorly maintained wood rink I go to often, or possibly informal practice on tennis courts or in my 2 car cement floored garage.

I don't have any place to skate outdoors nearby, so a well suited outdoor pair of skates might not be the best.

Also, I ice skate at a indoor hockey rink. I could even just buy some good bottoms to those riedells for ice use. The X7's would make good spare plates incase I break a truck.

Any ideas would be great.

Seems like you have this covered pretty well. I don't think I can add much more other than consider upgrading the suspension to reverse king pins and Super Cushions.

Since they are so similar, I would sk8 them both for a while and determine which pair work the best for you.


As far as ice?? I have no idea. Other than I hate driving on it..... I have not sk8ed on ice since 1969
