I just found out that quite a bit of the Chief Ladiga Trail has been repaved with several buildings along the way having been renovated as well. My buddies and I plan to take a trip out there sometime in the near future and see how it is.

I remember when 195mm became the "new standard" for the larger-diameter wheels. I also remember when Bont introduced their three-point system to drop the overall boot height.

If I were to upgrade from what I have now, I really think I'll go with a 4x110 setup to get my feet wet. Once I've gotten back into the swing of things, I may try the 3x125 setup.

We're also in the process of figuring out how we can bring about a skating movement throughout the Birmingham area. We have some ideas, but the hard part is turning those ideas into reality.
Yeah... it's really my tag!
