Default Bont Giotto

Im using a bont quad racer with a giotto plate, Just a few things i didnt consider first.
In whatever size the bont is a very short boot compared to other boots.
combine this with a Giotto which is a rather long plate and room to move is rather limited.
Im running a 170 on a size 9 bont and is by no means a skateboard but
i had to cut Yep [Grinder] 20mm off the front of my new Giotto so it could go where i wanted it. Purists will cringe
I love my setup but have not skated another type of boot other than the bont.

Regards
steve

the bont quad racer is really intended to be an light weight speed boot...i really dont think it would hold up to well for jam skating..IMHO

You would tear up the Bont quickly. Also MHO.

Spencer's Giotto was in the milling machine right before I moved ...but not 20mm worth.....

bont size 9 is not the same as your Riedell size 9 Though im sure that you knew that? 10.5 Riedell sound better
For the size of my foot the axle spacing is perfect

I wear a size 11 US shoe and my toes are at the end of my boot.
The back of the rear wheels sit 35mm inside the boot, the front of the front wheels are 30mm inside Limmo's i think not.
will post pics to follow
