Note this is is not so much about Doop skates as a whole, I know that shoes make a big difference, but about mounting the 3x110 frames on a Fila F100 boot. Fila F100 boots are stiff, low speed skating boots. Unfortunately, they are not thermoplastic. They are not ideal, but work well enough with the other frames I have (4x90, 4x100, 4x110).

I used the wheels that came with the Doop skates. Not great wheels, but they roll well enough.

Just like bjvircks, fewer wheels equals rougher ride and a bigger chance for the wheels to take wicked detours on the edges of bricks or cracks in the road.
One experiment I can try is to put 3 wheels per frame in my 4x110 frames and then compare that to the same wheels in the 3x110.

That should rule out the number of wheels or any wheel differences.
