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 XL's

Hello DocSk8, I have recently acquired a pair of XL's after a 3 year search.
Is there going to be a problem with the larger wheels that speed skaters today are using? Would you know what cushions were used on the XL's?

Thanks for your time.

Nothing like that plate that lets us go back to the good old says.

Pretty much.. However, the smaller wheels have made a come back in roller derby. If you want to go fact, using something from the dark ages is not the best way to go.

Would you know what cushions were used on the XL's?

Sure. The standard ~7/8" diameter tall cushions. (like the most common Laser cushions) The XL used Chicago trucks and the same geometry as far as I can tell.


Thanks for your time.
You are welcome. Hope this gets you going in the correct direction.
