Default 3 x 125 frame?

I see on the InSpeed website they mention that there are several manufacturers who make 3x125 frames. Any idea who they are? For adults?

I seen something about that the other day while going thru some sites.
I really can't remember the name atm,
(didn't pay that close of attention to it being a quad man)
but will try and figure out where I seen it, if I can find it I'll let you know.

Well I found what I had seen, someone had it posted in a different forum
but I guess it's just a Prototype, they are talking about an August release
date I guess, not for sure though. Here is the link...

Yeah, I've been keeping an eye on that page.

For some reason there are some negative, trashing comments about InSpeed on other forums. Not sure what's going on with that. Personally, I hope the guy is able to do something with it.

Sounds like a great concept but it seems that the frame was originally listed as coming from Maxxon sports and a week later it changed to inspeed and they made incorrect statements about well known skaters testing their products...I'm leaving this alone until it gets some word of mouth.

I think it's funny, maybe someday everybody will use 1x400mm

The main reason I'd like to try them (other than curiousity) is that I think they would roll over some of the rough pavement around here a little more smoothly. I'm not getting them to replace my 4x100 (more like just to supplement them)... and I'm not that fast, so I'm not getting them with the illusions that they would suddenly make me go faster and turn me into a rock star or anything.

Simply: bigger wheels roll better over junk (assmuing the proper hardness). I *believe" at this point they would be helpful for me on some of the rougher trails. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. Never know until you try right?

You are getting close:-) Unicycle is 1x508 mm, only one wheel though.

I don't think the 3 wheels frames will ever really work for adults. I don't think 3 support points will be enough.


If you are interested in a cushy ride, you might want to look into carbon fiber frames in either 100 or 110 wheels!

I know that forum member CDS Dave has skated for a long time on his 3x110 improvised Bont Inferno frame...so I think the concept has some merit.

I do too--especially for a light skater. At 138 #, I don't think that I would lose much in roll by using three wheels rather than four. Of course, like I said, I'm not that fast (I only average 14 - 16 mph over a 15 mile trail skate) so I'd doubt any slight loss of roll would even matter (you can't kill a dead horse, right? ).

OooH definitely you got a point! If you are light and just skating recreationally I definitely think a 3 wheel skate will be just fine!

I was "talking" more in the realm of racing... sorry!

About skating on rough terrain:
Did anybody heard of the "Hydro-skate": http://www.hydroskate.nl/ (it's in Dutch but you can select English in the right top corner)

It's a system which allows all wheels to touch the ground even if the terrain is not flat.

I have no experience with it, but it seems to work. Or does anybody experience with it??

(sorry for going off topic)

That looks interesting. I love to see these different skating ideas coming along...

Default Remembering this post from 2007

I bumped into this post from 2007. I remember having seen the prototype 3x125 but the pic is no longer available. Anyway... bumping it so you can read this post when the 3x125 concept was a seldom seen unicorn.

The 3x125 is getting a lot of use in speed skating. Yes for adults. You could start by looking at "Powerslide"

We put 3x100 together in 05/06 for my our kids in TX. Our engineer stated, "there's no reason why it shouldn't work for adults too". He was right...

I don't know who it was, but there was a person that started "Team 125" back in 2007 or 2008. He made some frames and we used 125mm scooter wheels from Yak (horrible wheels). My teammate was "sponsored" by them. I have been using my Cado CrossTrainer frame since about that time with 125's but until recently, the wheels have sucked! If you look closely at the middle of this picture, you can see the "Team 125" frames on my old Verducci Corsa boots (Black and green).

George, I definitely remember your 3 wheel prototypes back then! I don't remember you using 125's but certainly 100 and 110's.
