You liked San Antonio. I think they have room for a few more.

Skated a litttle on the frames with yellow Matters. I could feel all the road vibration. This felt terrible after 3 months on MPCs. You feel no road vibration with MPCs.

I liked visiting San Antionio when I was a kid (1976 - 1982). I got a set of the MPC golds. I can't wait till I can get them outside...

I'd never consider really using the Matter Yellows. I find the Reds hard enough.

The Matter 110s only come in green and yellow now. I skated on red 100s and wanted red 110s. The MPCs even top the reds. NO VIBRATION and they grip in the rain as if you are on dry pavement.

Very interested to see how the MPCs stack up against the Pc-Vanes you've used, Mark (in your opinion).

I skated the matter Greens and thought they were just about perfect. I don't think i'd want to go much harder than that, if at all. But i prefer the PC-Vanes to the matters.

i tried it out and have this to report. It doesn;t matter as far as the underpush goes, and it reallyu doesn;t seem to take any more power inside outside up or down, the onkly thing that matters is that your upper body has to compensate if you skate along an incline. It compensates quite simply by staying plumb (perfectally straight up and down) as opposed to perpendicular to the skating surface. of course, we do this quite intuitiviely.

It just doesn't seem to be an issue underpushing into the side of an incline in reality. Maybe others have a harder time with this?

SOrry for spelling- frozen fingers.

Mark, if you mean skating outdoors today takes devotion, actually skating two years indoors when i hated it most all the time was devotion. Not that there's anything wrong with it - i just don't like it. But going outdoors for me even today and all winter is really fun for me.

Or trying to type with frozen fingers is devotion? Either way, thanks.

More along the lines of coming in directly from the cold and typing up your report...I really like the serenity of the outdoors mid winter when no one is out there.
