Default Bont hubs.

Are you still loving your royal assassins over a comparable hardness RBT?

Im aware your opinion on spacers , but any idea on the bearing seat width of the bonts?

RBT'S have a seat width of right at .285 thousandths. Since the bonts have more narrow bearings, I was wondering if their bearing seats are wider.

I hope to make a trip soon to Neville

I think that is fair to say.

No but I imagine I get the numbers.

As in distance between the bearings??

Great, hope to see ya soon.

Yea distance between 2 installed bearings. Bearing seat-the lip that the outer races sits against. The width of it. Heh, you know me and my spacers, looking for a average spacer width. Getting a feel of what I'm in for when ordering from Mr. Corey.

Since those bonts use micros I wondered if the seat was really wide, like 10mm or greater since the bearings were really skinny.

Finding a wider spacer than .400 might be a PITA

Hows julian(Fish) doing in quads?

Why not get up here and try mine before you spring for the big bucks.

Nothing a lathe and a piece of rod cannot solve.

We are soon to build him an interesting pair. He borrows mine frequently.

Oh yea? Awesome.

Jam skate style or a bont speed like boot? My vanilla is a size 10, we were gonna be up around the 19th this month but a graduation came up.

Dunno what size foot hes got but we have a few different size skate between our usual crew of skaters and some gear if hes interested in trying various setups. I know you also have a ridiculous amount of ready to use skates.

I like my RBT'S... BUT... the grip is very on/off at some rinks.. Almost like the urethane is too thin. Great smooth wheels though, but I dont see them being as great as one would expect. If you come from a thicker urethane wheel. It almost like the thiker thane heels are easier to hook back up if I run a no spacer setup.

What duros do you have in the bonts?

I'll install and fix some bearings in those RBT'S soon. Maybe some of your skaters or yourself would be interested in running them with the nuts loose then torqued down. See how slide grip and hookup varies.


All the best. Ill let everyone know when we are up that way again.

He wears 9s as do I. It is a sneaker build.

graduations do that.

Too many sk8s still are not enough.

You must have found some crap floors. I have several derby sk8rs that switch between 101 and 97s.. A couple of them have 92s for pushers.

It has much more to do with suspension adjustment than any wheel tricks. Most of the afore mentioned sk8rs run
Avengers on finger tight blues.

What duros do you have in the bonts?

All sorts of them. Some you can get readily, some not yet (if ever) commercially available,

What duro?? I'm on 101s mostly. I'll supply the 7mm bearings..

All the best. Ill let everyone know when we are up that way again.
By all means, you and your crew are always welcome.

The Bont Assasins I bought from Doc are, without a doubt, my favorite wheels I have rolled yet.

My RBT'S are 88A.

Anyone wanting to run them will need sleeves if using 7mm axles. I'll probably do an install when I get home. I'm going to try the Qube 8balls in this setup. Even though I dont like the inner raceway.

Yea we dont have recoated floors around here. well on the other hand we gotta have relentless grip so when oblivious skaters dart in front of us stopping or swerving is something we have to be able to do. We tend to skate a lot harder @ our rink than we did during our stop at Neville. Smaller rink, more people, increased "comfort" zone since we are always there. It can get pretty damn crazy

Id love to roll some assassins when we make our next stop but I only use 8mm.
