I don't think anyone has. My Liberty Race 4x110 has about a mm clearance between everything and it is a 13.2". I would hate to think what a 165mm mount 4x110 would be length wise to have a relatively low deck height.

No it's not possible. You just need extra length in the frame to squish them big boys in, and you can't do it in 165mms.

You do know that you can get some good bucks for your used equipemtn to offset the cost of new. Figure that in,
And you do know that the difference between sport and hobby that you draw is pure poppy-cock. We are all hopeless prisoners to our pursuits. Period. Face it and just figure a way to hide the balance sheets from the significant other.. (i have ideas along those lines, too).
My recommendation: Look to Santa and consider some of the package deals with Pinnacle/Liberty Sports or a McDaniels boot or other.
I know that's not a position i would want to be in, and perhaps the best i can help you with now is info. And here it is: the 110mm frames are very much fun, and they are worth the effort getting onto them. I would spend some time on 100mm first though or else the height might be too quick an adjustment.

What is interesting is that the height from axle to top of frame is the same from my Powerslide Vision 4x100 and the Liberty Race 4x110. So it is really the 5 extra mm of the 110mm wheels in my transition, but it is still a noticeable difference.

It's possible, but you would be sooo high up that it would defeat the purpose!
The Liberty Sports 3-110/1-100 frame is only 12.75" with 195mm spacing. Only millimeter gaps between the wheels.

Terrablader, that's fascinating stuff. And methinks the neatly laid out protective gear resembles an alien taking a nap. Spooky!

Those Simmons skates look dazzling.

Do skates come with a max size before we call them something else?

And who said speed skates are so ugly - hope you were kidding.

Speedy,
Ah - good to see Santa is making early deliveries this year. It's hard to tell which are the new pair - they both look so good. Do you plan to use one for indoor and the other outdoor? The wheels probably answer that question.

Yeah, but I'd never recover even close to the $1200 I paid for the boots alone. No one would want to buy a boot that was made for my weird feet anyway.

Rick-aside from the buckle color and the laces they are the same boot. The new one is a standard boot/the original is a custom. The newer one has the blue matter wheels for indoors.

they look good. interested to know if stock boot works just as well for you as customs. dave Simmons really is jazzed on his new S-1 last, and feels that stock boots will meet the needs of all but a few very unusual pairs of feet.
