Small, hard 'wheels' that you replace your middle wheels with to skate anti-rocker. They are meant to make grinding easier if you choose to skate anti-rocker.

Are Senate still making wheels!!??

Senate wheels are trash don't waste your money.

Grind Rocks are just another name for plastic anti-Rockers. 47mm or smaller plastic wheels that dont require bearings.

indeed they did!

i had one of them for a few months until some idiot at school decided to rip it open with a compass.
my local skateshop (i say local, i really mean 300 miles away and in another country) still sells them, 25 a pop.

Heh aggressiveskate.com or whatever sent me that exact pack for free when I bought my skates, they even had to ship it in a separate box and overnighted it so it would arrive with my skates..it looked like someone made a booboo packing :P

I used to have this big camo pack they made that was like a sea bag, I loved it but I spilled a yogurt in the bottom of it and didn't know untill I was sitting in class and centipedes started crawling out of it, yeah went straight to the dumpster after that. Then I got a sweet one that had the perfect skate holders and perfect size for school books. Don't remember what came of that.

Yeah Senate always came through with a good line of packs.

What you should have done is:
1 . Caught the centipedes (they can be handy if you have enemies)
2. Kept the backpack (they're washable)

I've never had centipedes crawl out of anything. You sure they weren't silverfish?

You don't like bugs do ya Patrick!?

Back on topic though, I'm gonna take my hi-lo GC-DI frames and put some senate 101a 47mm wheels I found in the rocker location and see how the grinds work. Been gettin some wheel bite with my current flat setup.

Try the GC plastics or Night UHMW antis. The plastic ones slide waaaaay better than the urethane ones.
