Default Roll-Line Giotto

I have got the need recently to have a second skate-setup. Because I need clean skates for indoor...
So I have a Roll-line Giotto and a pair Bont Quadracer Leather. Forward mount is a must, and when I placed the Giotto like my Boen plate there was a ugly piece of the platefront coming out under the shoe. So I decided to turn it around, back to front. But the big metal piece was now in heelside, so I cut it off and drilled holes in the same distance (35mm) like the other holes.
That is how they looking now:



Weight before was 473g


After modification 450g






What do you think?

Johannes

Beautiful. That's the nicest nose job I've seen on a Giotto yet.

Most of the Rolline plates are just gorgous, the matrix makes me drool!! I've only skated a Mistral (I think that's what it was called) and it turned almost too well for me! Reminded me of a Snyder. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on it given your other skates different geometry.
Beautiful build regardless.

Nice work, Johannes.

If you don't know that it was modified by you it could be original. ;-)

What kind of wheels will you use on this indoor setup?


Cheers

Thank you all for your appreciacion.
I never skated a Roll-Line plate before, so it will be a new expierience when the skates are finished.
But from the feel and technical they seem to be well constructed and rearly stable.
In fact it will be no Only-Indoors setup, but as long they are new and clean and the indoortraining is happening, I will use them only there.

I will put my 97a indoor wheels on it, for outdoor-cruising my Flywheels or Orangatangs.

Default Bigfoot Giottos

My Giotto-Outdoorskates are nearly finished. The wheels have 76mm and 84a. They will be lathed down 10 - 12 mm from the outer side. Until now they are quite heavy.

But they are looking a bit like a Dragster... :-)

What wheels are those, Johannes? How do they feel on the road?
Faster than the ABEC11 76mm 81a?

Cheers

Those are Landyachtz Zombies. Until now I have the impression that they are not that uncomfortable as the Speedvent with 83a.
But they are heavy at the moment. And they handle little stones like Rollsplitt not as well as the Flywheels. But, I have only one time tried, new wheels with the new shoe, the new plate. So there are more variables which could influence my impression.

When I cut those down on Sunday and put them on the old skates then I can say something.

One reason I bought the wheels is the colour. I love the fat black rubber...

Be careful how low you go with the wheels.... with my 57mm baby kryptos the kingpins pretty much hit every crack in the road on my Giotto's

The website states that the black Zombies are 88A

88a will be a way to hard for skating outside, than I understand that you run into trouble with rollsplit and little stones...

But the Turquoise 84a 76mm Zombie Hawgs could be from the data the excellent right thing for me after a little lathe work to make them more narrow.

I was really not impressed from the ABEC11 76mm 81a wheels after trying them now for 2 times this week, the Helium and expecially the Velocity Race are faster and better to handle outside.

Do you have sources in Germany where to order these Turquoise 84a 76mm Zombie Hawgs, Johannes?

Cheers

Gero

Where I bought the wheel they where subscribed as 84a , that was also printed on the wheel.
Suprisingly Landyachtz changed the Formula in the last time or they had a false print on mine. When I bought those, there where only the white 80a and the black 84a avaliable.
But, the thumbnail-test shows, that they are most probably to the side of 84a.
