*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Depends on the weight. I'm a male with nearly 80 kg.

Ditto! I am on Either grey or clear green (depending on which pair of skates) and would go to a softer cushion if there were one. I'm @ 220-225lbs, but been skating these cushions since I was 275ish.

On a Ring?

Maybe it is because I use the Ring only outdoors.

I'm ~77Kg and use my Roll Lines outdoors lots, with Lazer Blaze wheels too, but my Giottos have a higher deck height

I missed that detail.. sorry!
I'm on Variants and Drivers here, so geometry is a tad different. I do indoors and outdoors on them.

must have the suspension set way hard to run 70mm on a ring. designed for a 62mm (or smaller)figure wheel with no issues used for doing figures...64mm will fit BUT if you start backing off the suspension they will bite into the boot.

there are other posts on SL with the same conclusion
