*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

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. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default Reactor Pro Help

Hello, Doc!
I have skated on multiple setups over the years and am just now making the switch from Arius plates to Reactor Pros (I wanted a bit more stability for park skating).
I just got the skates in the mail today, and the trucks were tightened way down for shipping, as I expected. But I've never owned a pair of skates with adjustable pivots before, and I have no idea what needs to be done with them. Is it possible Riedell sent them tightened all the way, as well? It's hard to tell visually. Before I pull the trucks off, I'm wondering if you have any advice or best practices? I found a general YouTube video that was helpful, but I know you will have more wisdom to impart than some rando on YouTube! ha ha

(by the way, follow up to this question, I did track down the instruction manual for the adjustable pivots as my skates didn't come with them? so I do have the instructions on hand for reference!)
