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.

Default Quadline axles and king pins info

A bit of a long shot. But does anyone have a set of Quadline slim skates?
I know they never really took off, but I like the concept.
I was looking for some measurements for the pivot post and the length of the kingpin bolts. Also do they run different cushions? Canít find any info here in the UK and thought someone awesome from across the pond could help me out
Cheers folks

Umm... what does the "slim" mean in your question? I roll a set of
quadlines outdoors. Originally, I bought a set of high boots on eBay
with the trucks attached to some Sure-grip Super X plates (heavy).
Later, I transferred the trucks to a set of Riedell Carreras with the
same Super X plates. When I blew out my Carrera boots last year,
I bought a set of Sure-grip Rebel skates and simply replaced the
trucks with the quad line ones. These plates are actually nylon and
consequently lighter. Only mishap I had was one night I had to jump
a curb to avoid being hit my an unconscious right turning driver. My
skip up in this construction zone was not very graceful and I ended
up falling down. When I got up, I couldn't skate one boot. I pulled
it up to look and found that I'd actually jumped the rear truck right
out of the pivot cup and my truck and wheels were facing nearly 90
degrees cocked to the right. Simple fix once I obtained a wrench from
a nearby restaurant and was able to loosen the kingpin nut and
correct. Let me know if you need measurements or something. The
skates are out in my pickup truck as I take them everywhere I go.
The wheels I run in them are 100mm scooter wheels, I think their
width is 22mm and the duro is 82a.

Recently, I've had thoughts about how to cheaply convert other
skates to quadline. I notice skateboards can be found at Goodwill
around here for $4.99...

Thanks for the reply. I’ve converted a pair of regular plates using skateboard trucks, but have suffered some serious wheel bite.
I noticed that Richard Humphrey originally offered a wide set up and a slim with the wheels under the boot on a standard width skate truck.
I assumed that the slim set up had some sort of longer kingpin and truck pivot post with thicker cushions to drop the wheels lower under the plate
