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.

Default Roll-line variant M pivot pin adjustment

I've read every thread I could find regarding this adjustment, and I think I have it right, but there is a slight issue I am having adjusting my pivot pins.

I can't rock the truck in enough to tell if it's in right, and try as I might, I can't really ascertain when it goes in properly. The closest I can tell is when there is no lateral play at the end of the pivot.

These are brand new skates with an edea boot on them, and I am going out with them on Friday night to get used to them, so I'll be tweaking the action well before I jump on them or anything. I've read there is generally a specific noise to listen out for when tapping the skates, and I'm pretty sure I heard that yesterday when I tried them out for the first time, the pins were a long way out, but now I can't tell the difference between the wheels hitting the floor, or that noise of the pins being wrong.

Am I likely to cause damage listening for this noise, and adjusting to suit, before I do any serious movement on the skates, jumping etc?
