*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

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 DocSk8 Tribute

I am guessing this is technically not allowed but... I have skated many setups - my last one that fit me -1988 (have been skating since '79) to when I restarted in 2007. From speed setups, to "jam" setups, to JB setups. I have bought from others, tried to mount my own, but for all around fun I keep going back to my simple setup Doc built for me in '08. When i just want to SKATE and not think about what's on on my feet, i go back to this one pair of skates. So to Doc I tip my hat and say thanks.....and return to the shadows.

Exclamation Technically not allowed??

Thanks for that. I'm glad you read the rules.. However, I enforce them @ my discretion..

Your post is certainly a poke in the eye to the "stuck in the past" naysayers that think because I do not follow their "rules" for sk8 building, I do not know what I am doing.

I'm pleased you took the time to give me some feedback after all this time and even more pleased you are still happy after all this time, especially after going through other pairs of sk8s.

Keep on having fun. It is why we should be sk8ing after all.
