*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Default Packaged outdoor skates

Hello Folks,

I'm new to the forums but have been kicking around the archives for about a week. I made my first post in the intro section, http://www.skatelogforum.com/forums/...p?t=81&page=51. Hopefully the link works.

I spent a lot of time digging in the archives and there are some great posts in the new outdoor quad section. I have a question about purchasing outdoor quads. The outdoor quad setups seem to be indoor quad boots and plates that have outdoor wheels on them. I understand the concept of moving the plate forward or mounting a larger plate on the boot so that more weight is behind the front wheel.

My question, what manufacturers (and model numbers, please) make outdoor skates with the 'proper' plate placement?

Here is more info about me and my potential skating areas.

I cracked over 200 lbs recently. This gets carried by size 8's. The neighborhood is flat and has concrete sidewalks and concrete streets that are in very good shape and don't have heavy traffic. I have access to asphalt trails and school parking lots. I like the low cut boots. Having my ankles locked in the inline boots was something I always disliked. I'd like to keep the purchase under $200, if possible.

Any help is appreciated.
