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 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 Possible New Stage?

Well I have been skating for almost a year now (I skated on weekends when I was under 13, now I'm 35) and I'm positive I have every stage of SEDS. In a year I have collected 9 pairs of boots (size 11-11 1/2), about 200 sets of bearings (all brands and ratings), 21 sets of plates (plus the ones on the boots), and 83 sets of wheels plus a box of singles. I have also built my niece an indoor and an outdoor set of skates as well as the same set up for my nephew. I put together a set for my older brother. I buy for other people without their knowledge or consent. But now I might have gone off the deep end. I built my wife a set of skates. Riedell 172 boots with the shearling tongue dyed to match the Annabolix Purple Reign wheels with polished hubs. I added Bones Swiss Ceramic bearings to those. I put Powerdyne Arius plates on them that I had the red anodizing removed and re-anodized to match the Purple Reign wheels. They looked amazing. And guess what? My wife does not even skate and has no desire to. So I think I have entered the 4th stage.... Buying for people who don't even skate. The only solution I can think of, I bought my way into this mess I must be able to buy my way out. If you have stuff to sell let me know. Mostly interested in wheels. Thanks.

I have been skating for about 8 months now and have been alternating between stage 1 and stage 2 SEDs. I just got a perfect Riedell 295 Laser with faster wheels setup but I am not yet satisfied. There will never be a cure to SEDs . MORE SKATES FOR ME!!!
