Default Mounting...

I have only ever seen "in step" or offset mounting on the left boot. It helps those big skateboard speed plates turn left. The right boot has always been mounted pretty neutral or center. The theory I have always been taught is that the long wheel base is best for speed and power, but to get them to turn you have to get creative. The best speed skates Ive ever skated were mounted that way. Check out the pictures in the old skate magazines and you will see examples. I saw a picture of one of the Muse brothers posted here on skatelog with this example just a couple of weeks ago.
