Hey Janneman,

This new setup you recommended just doesn’t seem to be working. Having trouble with splinters and heat molding smokes up the oven. Time to get out the chisel. Dennis

dmoore, quit complaining and focus on your technique where the real issues lie. Some people are always blaming the equipment. Others think that if i just get this or that new wheel or frame or whatever, i;ll suddenly skate like Joey.

That said, start with adjusting the frames, and with any luck, yours have screws that can be backed out and adjusted, as opposed to nails.

Good luck.

Perhaps my attempt at humor was a bit too subtle? Saw the pic and couldn't resist. I'll consult with John Kerry for my next joke.

Kev,

Three Questions:

1)Are which Giotto's are you skating on?
2) What type of floor are you skating on?
3) Which of the stopper are you using (mini,regular?) Hard for me to tell in the photo......

Thanks and Skate on!
Liz

Hi Liz i am not sure about his wheels or floor the toe stops are rolline, regular sized,,,,probably metric thread because of the rolline plate. the rolline toe stops are a bit smaller then snyders.
