Default Ah, I remember it well

The day my right front truck sailed out in front of me and I fell in a heap. Ended up pulling something attached to my little finger(tendon or something) and had a fracture in the finger also. I was doing a lot of hockey stops at that time and I'm sure the stress of that caused the failure.

I had a spare kingpin, but the owner of the rink I skated at ordered a set of four titanium kingpins. Never another problem(over 25 years anyway). More than likely, if anyone has access to titanium kingpins - it will be DocSk8.

I love the Snyder plates, but the kingpins - no so much!
