Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default Here's a pic/ad for your collection.



I've always wondered what IFO stood for.

Invader Force One!

Kinda strange that they went with "Invader" and the picture is showing an XK-4. Not to mention that more than 90% of these I've found seem to have Super Xs. Usually Kryptos outdoor wheels of one sort or another.

The whiskey colored wheels and stops are sweet. I think I've only seen one pair with those... Or I've seen this ad before? I dunno. There's also a really cheesecake Vanguard ad at the source. I don't imagine that "hugging" was exactly what the picture in the ad brought to the minds of male skaters back then... Awful Oberhamer disco skates ad, and some fairly useless Dominion info.

wanted to give you a heads-up to the wrong-way stripes so you wouldn't faint. We don't need a fainted Doc......
