*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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

Default 1 skate for all

It appears everything is specialized these days as far as boots, plates and wheels. So, does a person need three or more pair of skates to be competitive? Can one pair of boots and one plate suffice with different wheels/bearings for the different events? If so, what would you recommend? I realize that this is a compromise in one or more areas, but it looks like a person could have one very nice set up for what the cost of three would be. Appreciate any thoughts.

I am new to skating, starting after retirement and currently have a Riedell 120 boot, Crazy Venus plate and Bones team logo 98A wheels. Hope to use these to get to Bronze level and want to try to work up the levels if time and ability allow. Again, thoughts on a one pair set up are appreciated.
