Back in the day they were rated as 78A but over time they get harder.

In the UK, the jam skaters and Original Bauer crew go mad for original sims street snakes especially the 2/3 tone versions. The new sims urethane just isn't up to par.

These yellow/orange ones are a pretty rare colourway.

Default family rollin'

New member here and my first post! My wife (also new member: mrs slowpoke) and I are glad to be apart of the forum. Now, the collection.....

Group shot!
[IMG][/IMG]

The kids:
[IMG][/IMG]
They are all on Riedell Darts. I highly recommend for anyone that has little ones starting out. Good quality. None of the kids complain about comfort. The ones with the dice are our 10 year old daughter's. She also has a light on them and wears the long, loud knee socks when she skates. Rockin' it!

The wife's:
[IMG][/IMG]
She loves her Bont's. She is a new derby player, loves session skating, and wants to learn everything she can on skates. She is the reason I am back skating after 20 years. She took the kids several months ago and fell in love with it, and thus bringing me back into it. We love having a family hobby.

My ride:
[IMG][/IMG]
Sometimes they have Turbos under them if my wife isn't skating!

Redlines I put together:
[IMG][/IMG]
Unfortunately, they are a bit too snug for my liking, and about 1/4 inch too short wheelbase, but man are they fun to shuffle in!

What I'm trying to learn:
[IMG][/IMG]
Gave $20 for them off craigslist. Never been on inlines before in my life, never even wanted too, but now I've decided I want to be able to do both. I've taken them to the rink twice, skated them the last 20 or 30 minutes of the session. It's different, but I seem to have the hang of it. My legs were not too happy with the change! There's another picture of our son's inlines in the group shot. $30 on ebay. The first day at the rink with them, both racket strap things broke! He hasn't skated in them since even when we fixed it with a tie strap or a lace.....which is fine with me. Rather him on quads but don't tell him!

Possibly my wife's future derby or session skate:
[IMG][/IMG]
She's leaning toward the Pumas. She doesn't care for the heel on the 265s, and after skating Bonts, she definitely prefers them to a Riedell. What she will probably do is put the Avenger on the Pumas for a session skate, and put a Falcon Plus on her Bonts for a derby. Just not sure yet.

Our closet:
[IMG][/IMG]
No, we don't wear those helmets when we skate. One is my racecar helmet, one is my motorcycle helmet; I use to own both. Neither were family friendly! So glad skating is!

So that's our stuff! We love it and have met some great people (Reserector skates at our local rink,) and look forward to meeting/talking/skating with others!

Default Urban Warrior - Metro Skate

My newest build: the Urban Warrior metro skate -designed for comfortable rolling at high speeds in a harsh surface urban skating environment with a targeted balance of safety, speed, sharp turning response, comfort and durability. Five years R&D for optimizing outdoor quad skate features all packed into one single build:





Nike Zoom Air 96 Retro release BB shoe with sole-embedded DragonPlate carbon fiber laminate stiffener sheet added; 2-piece black oxide brass lace eyelets; 100% glue mounted (reversed for heel stop) and deck height optimized SG-Nova "franken plates" with reversed kingpin upgrade and using Chicago Panther trucks [Update] now with fully threaded titanium axles & 100% nylon nuts; Nova deep blue soft DA cushions with lower barrel OD turned down to .90" for freedom of action; Zombie Hawg high rebound longboard wheels @76mm OD & 84A narrowed down to 35mm width & 32mm contact patch; Acer Racing 608 Si3N4 ceramic black ball bearings with 7mm x 8mm axle sleeves threaded internally for their full length to engage the fully threaded titanium axles; custom fabric paint job;

NOTE: deck height optimization allows for wheels as large as 84mm and beyond.

Acer Racing 608 SIN ceramic ball bearings

39.95$ each 479.84$ for 16, and sleeves are needed, really, how are they?

This is an introductory price, it's going up

Pure Silicon Nitride outer and inner races, hmmm

To bad it's an 8mm bearing, what a waste

Hi everybody, I'm an happy new forum member !

I post pictures of some of my pairs of skates :

1) A pair of Vlado shoes, a Lazer frame and Krypto Classic K 76mm wheels


2) Patrick Ewing 33Hi + Lazer frame (with quick release system) + Krypto CR59mm


3) Warrior Burn 5.0 Mid + Sure Grip Avenger Mag for roller derby


4) Rollerblade Fusion 10K + Lazer frame for slalom


5) Roces LAX + Fiberlite Backslide frame + Kryptos 58mm, for bowl / downhill (just change the wheels)


I've got at least ten other pairs of skates, with soccer shoes, hard boots or sneakers.

Walid.

Walid,
Nice sampling of very unique kinds of outdoor builds you posted.

Seems like you have been doing them for quite a while.

Are those white 76mm Krypto wheels still being sold in Europe? Havent seen any like them over here.

Yes we did a lot of tests. Some are successful, some aren't
Putting this kind of shoes on quads is part of our culture in France.

yes, I've started 27 years ago, and I built pair of skates for my friends and derby league every week.

Default Quad god in the house!

Hi Walid, nice builds you have there.

Just wanted to say what an inspiration you are. Have a few of your video edits from the rollerfr.net site (sadly seems to have stopped working).

My favourites are the one from Les Invalides, 2003 - a quad slalom/jumping section, followed by a crazy downhill run on the rear wheels of one skate! It's hard to tell, but were they Roces boots?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4C8x...e_gdata_player

Next is 'Wawa's Island' with some nice grinds as well as the Mario craziness!

It's a pity the videos can't be accessed as I'd reckon every SLF member would be blown away by how awesome your skating is.

How long have you been active in Derby, & who do you skate for? The Toulouse Quad Guards have been over here in the UK a few times, I think - they were here for the MERDC.

Anyway, massive respect and keep rolling!

Stu

PS Are those Seba High liners in the Roces LAX?

thanks a lot for your comment.
Yes RollerFR stopped working because it's not compatible with new versions of PHP...

This one is one of my favorite also. A lot of people are still asking me questions about the downhill wheeling. Yes you're right, I was skating with a 1996 Roces CDG boot. I've been skating CDG boot for quite a long time, in fact until I switched to soccer shoes !

wawa's island was a joke. We went to Grenoble with a friend, and had no idea what we could do. As we spend a part of the weekend playing on the Nintendo, it became the subject of the video !

I've started to play Roller Derby one year and a half ago. I was back to France and was surprise by the number of girls doing the Friday Night Skates, with all pads. I started to meet them, and I joined Montpellier's Merby Team (the Kamiquadz).
Derby is fun, and I feel like I have to explain our quad culture to theses new comers: that's why I became RollerQuad.net webmaster.
In one year I did 26 customs skates, and my Derby setup (Warrior shoe and Sure Grip Avenger frame) is being made by other skaters.

Yes absolutly. I friend of mine did it for it's own pair of Roces CDG, and I've copied him.

Default Cheers Walid

Thanks for the reply, I'll have a look at the videos at some point.

How do you find the soccer boot for your tricks? Can you still do slides / wheeling / rolling on one wheel or one edge - or do you need hard shell boots for some tricks?

Stu

I like soccer boots a lot. The ankle is free and it's perfect for sliding !
I also jump with this pair of skates, and I feel comfortable with it.

It's not good for slalom, as you miss the hard boot and the cuff, but I don't slalom so much these days !

I can only do forwards & backwards criss-cross, slow 1-footed, and a very bad crazy. Not good at slalom! And definitely not at the crazy speeds in your Trocadero videos .

I haven't yet learnt to power slide, or any other kind of slide, on quads. I have Roll-line heliums for outdoors -I've tried to slide, but not succeeded. Much harder than on inlines.

I can jump about 12 inches - enough for derby minimum skills, lol!

I plan to learn power slides & hockey stops for derby, so am going to get some harder indoor wheels. My 92a Fugitives don't want to slide either. Going to try some Roll line rapidos, or Reno verticals...but have seriously thought about Belair Hockeys as well - so much cheaper, but maybe not grippy enough. What indoor wheels do you use?
