*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
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
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

I've read these several times:

Bearing Oil Alternative - got a bit scientific.

Wheel Reviews - comparisons by the experiment loving members.

Need a wheel recommendation - contains minute details about the feeling and function at each phase of the stroke and race.

Carbon fiber differences among boots - Mom, dad, please don't fight.

There was one of these where you gave a lot of specifics about buying multiple sizes, only standing on carpet, etc. Can you dig it up?
