*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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

Default K2 Celena 2009 vs. Radical 90 (2009)

I just ordered a pair of K2 Celena's but wanted to know people's opinion on the Celena vs. the Radical before I can no longer exchange. I did not originally get the Radical because it did say it was for advanced skaters, and that I am not. I would consider myself more of a intermediate/beginner who mainly skates in the street. I have been skating since 1996 but on a 72mm wheel. I wanted to step it up a little & plan to start skating about longer stretches.

I have the radical 100s. It took a bit to get used to in the beginning. But I can say they are very comfortable. I do think that the shorter frame of skates with 80-84mm wheels make for a more manueverable skate, esp for the beg/int skater. I can say the rad is quite popular in the rec/fitness division if your plan is to skate longer distances like half/full marathons.
A lot depends on where you skate (I prefer road to trails- the ones near me are too hilly and I am not comfortable with controlling my speed on trails with pedestrian/leash hazards). I like the boot itself on the rad b/c it has more flex and I get get lower and don't feel as locked into place like other skate boots that feel more like a ski boot.
