One thing about the SkateLog subforums... if people are not using them, it is likely they will eventually be deleted and all of the posts merged back into one of the other forums. We almost deleted the artistic inline forum recently, because NObody was using it. We decided to hold off on deleting it when the artistic inliners began posting there again because didn't want to lose that subforum.

Here is my future ramp quad boots:


The blades will be going on a frame for my aggro boots.

Oh, these cost me all of $5.50 at a thrift shop.

Nice! I was at the skate park one day and these kids show up that had just been to the thrift store. All of them had on what looked like fairly new skates. They had bought them at the thrift store for about $3 each pair. One set was some Roces aggro skates that looked practically new. That kid, first time on ramps, was stalling the 4 footer after about an hour of skating. I never did see that kid there again, but he seemed to be a natural.

Thumbs up My Vertical Set-Up

Here are a couple of pics of my SK8s.











As you can see they're pretty much basic, stock Carrera Speed Skates with a small metal "plate" under each Speed Plate. I've been riding this Set-Up for about 12 years & LOVE them. I can grind metal-coping, pool-coping, concrete even PVC with them. I can also skate them in my local roller rink without any modifications.

Keep Rollin'.......

Default My Vert Skates...

Here is a pic of my skates:

This is an old school (1980's) setup: Tracker skateplates, trucks and toe stop mounts. It's all mounted to Reidell 125's. I'm using Mini Logo 101a wheels with Bones Reds bearings. You can't tell from that pic, but my boots are covered with black duct tape because they're so old and shot out.

The trucks are new...I used to use the Tracker Ultra-Lite trucks and baseplates but they're so old now (1980's) that Buddy (from Tracker Trucks) warned me that they'll break on me so I went for a new all steel setup.

Ok...now don't flame me for the purple toe stops! At the time they were all I could find, luckily I recently found a guy online that sold me a bunch of black stoppers for cheap!

I'm going to try the Bones SPF (skate park formula) wheels next,
I'll keep you all posted...

Yeah...it took a while to get used to them. I slipped off the coping a lot at first! My old setup (copers, lappers and cut up slide rails) was easier to plant on coping but this setup is working good for me now.

You have to host it somewhere and provide a pic link.

Those are great pictures of your skates, drod5150. Very interesting design on those plates, and I've always loved low profile boots like those.

However, by putting in longer axles with nuts to extend the hanger, don't you have a problem with bent axles from the lack of axle support? I have bent so many axles over the years, that I just cannot see those trucks holding up to extreme punishment.

I put these together a couple years ago. They seem to work fairly well for my limited abilities skating in the bowl. The boots are Oberhamer rink hockey type SZ 11 (they fit a SZ 12 insole perfectly). I scored them on ebay ( NIB ) mounted to the plates in the picture ( Sure Grip Competitor SZ 9). After remounting the plated to adjust the position a little, I changed the trucks with a quad-line conversion kit acquired form SkatesDotCom and after trying the big 100mm wheels for about 5 minutes, I installed a set of 62mm narrow speed wheels. The name on the wheels was " The Clash"... they were 10 bucks for the set with an estimated hardness of 95A. A new set of 8mm bones reds in the plastic hubs and I was all smiles from then on. The grind bars were added a few months ago, but they have not seen any real use yet since I have not quite learned to drop in, much less do any rail/coping tricks.

Not bad! Boots are too high topped for my liking but that is a personal opinion.

Try dropping in from a sitting position to learn drop ins. Push yourself up onto your feet and remember to always try to be perpendicular to the surface you are on.

Good luck!!!

Default My New V8-Skate Quads

The last time I spoke, there were a few people asking when I was going to bring these out into the open. They are a new skate I am trialling from V8-Skate, with my own V8-Skate Quad Skate Boots, and V8-Skate Power-Plates.

So far, they have withstood many surfaces and degrees of punishment, and as they are relatively new, there may be some changes taking place to get the finished product. I hope you like them as much as I do! Cheers

They look like Halloween skates!! LOL!

Actually, they look pretty good. Have they any plans to install sliders? Otherwise, I like the low cut boots, the width of the trucks, and the wheels look good too. Where are you located and where is the V8 skate company located?

I have installed makeshift sliders which are connected to the power-plate only. No stiffeners/jump-plate between the trucks required. I have shortened the stopper also until the button stopper comes through.

I'm in Sydney, Australia. V8 Skate is a relatively new Australian Business looking to manufacture Aggressive Quad Skates for both Vertical and Flat-Land Skaters.

Cheers
