*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

BTW your comment "it felt weird to crossover (felt like they were fighting me a little)" is accurate, but not because the sk8s are actively responding to your presence.. They just don't mix well with your old techniques.. Focus on you stance and spend some time doing alternating scissors.. It has several benefits..

1) you will get the feel of the sk8s much quicker.
2) it will strengthen your legs in places you did not know you had places.
3) It will make it easier to sk8 and cross over in the anti derby direction..
DocSk8 you rock, thanks for the info about the plates (and everything else)

Yep, I plan on cleaning first then lubing just need to do some research to see what people are using. I was thinking about getting that bearing stacker thing where I put the liquid in and shake it like a polaroid picture (not the Bont cleaner).

I bought 2 new sets of wheels:
- A mix of Heartless Chaser (92) and Vanish (96)
- Radar Diamonds 94 (the white ones)

I also have some new wheels to try that I borrowed from the blondies but need to get a bearing switcher first.
