*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default MPC Black Magics in the rain?

The weather watch for A2A has begun and while it is much to early to call, right now the forecast looks sketchy.

On an 87 mile course, mounting rain wheels when it is mostly dry is almost as bad as mounting dry wheels when it is rainy.

Does anyone know how Black Magic's perform in the rain? I'm trying to determine how quick I should be to mount the Storm Surge's.

Last year I needed rain wheels but did not have them. I had just moved to 110's and the only rain wheels I had were 100's. Naturally, the WRW Truth 87A's I was using turned out to be absolutely abysmal in the rain.

I am somewhat optimistic about the Black Magic's. In certain contexts they are billed as track wheels. My 100mm rain wheels are actually re-purposed track wheels.
