Default Consider Bearings and Wheels for the Mature Skater

for Dance Steps "after" session.!
For a long time I stayed on not the best bearings, either due to laziness or who cares anyway, and I still don't have the best wheels.

I knew from many posts that skating on less than great bearings and striving to keep up would strengthen me so I continued the adventure in lower technology.

When I did change my bearing to Bones Swiss, the younger skaters were more like butter.

So please consider changing or cleaning your bearings and maybe getting other wheels as you mature in skating.

Beyond youth which is and was awesome, strong continued application of skills and then some technology shortens the gap.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave
