Default Good point....

Then when we have these threads to pick your FIVE BEST PLATES, BOOTS, WHEELS ..., we would not have to break down the choices as "Indoor Wheels" versus Outdoor wheels" etc...

The regular Quad threads also often get messed up when things flip back an forth from an Indoor perspective to an Outdoor perspective on some issues.

If my patent effort succeeds, within a year there will be cool skateboard shoes that can instantly attach and remove to/from quad plates. They will have long forward mount setups, and still turn just about as easily as short mounts do. With plates removed they will be exactly like a normal shoe. This is going to revive the QUAD outdoor skating scene for sure.
