A while ago I posted with pictures of my Rye skates, I would like to say this DO NOT BUY RYE PLATES, WHEELS, OR ANYTHING!

The Rye wheels I had literally snapped in half after less than 4 months and my plate that I bought, snapped as well. Considering the plates cost me over $500 I am not impressed...

I will not be buying this product again and recommend that others avoid this brand.

Posted this in my hello thread. Just saw this one:

These are my only skates. Chicago 805 boots.

I've put on Kwik ABEC-9 bearings, and yellow SureGrip Aerobics (85A), for all the casual beachside skating I do. I want a set of yellow toe/scuff-guards, but haven't seen anything bright enough yet.

I still need to pick up a set of rink wheels to replace the stock ProStar wheels these came with. Not too high on my priority list, though, as I don't get to the rink as often as I'd like.

You have a bent rear axle on the skate on the right hand side
of that photo, resulting in the coning of the wheel. Replace
the axle and lathe cut the wheels on that axle and you should be good to go!

Thanks SwisherTONE! LOVE my custom Altamuras, they sure stand out...! You can't see in this pic, but they're also lined with super soft Aussie glove leather and sheepskin lined tongues. Cushions are Sure-Grip blues. Today I pushed those plates forward between 1/2~3/4" and they're looking (and rolling) even better!!

Damn greazer! Freakin awesome patch o' skates!
My skates are just the opposite. All boots, little wheels:



These next ones are my current setup for my daily bowl work:


My current rink setup with powerblades and 80mm wheels:



And the nasty old trail skates with the 90mm wheels:


No room for groceries in the back of my CRV:

Nice skate collection F2B!

I see K2 Moto 90's in there, I wouldn't say 90mm wheels are small, I've got a pair of those and they rock for nightskates and stuff like that!

Cheers,
Andy.

greazer, that is one seriously fast looking group of skates you posted.

I never realized the purpose of the one smaller wheel until I saw your PIC clearing showing how it allows the forefoot to stay lower, closer to the axles & the ground.

On our flea market in the city's tent on Saturday 3 August I bought these inline skates with knee,
elbow and wrist guards.
They were used and very cheap.


After a few days, I replaced the wheels, because the old ones was soft and
one was damaged a little.
I reused the old bearings, but the skates ran much easier and faster with new wheels.


I fell 2 times until I learned how easy the new wheels run.

Default Cheap but learn alot with them.

Cheap ones and should be affordable to most people. If it is expensive people will hesitate to try this activity. Two of the wheels had been replaced because of damaged. Once it's disintegrated totally I will get better pair if it is possible. So far it's still reliable.
