Default EO 125/110 Frames

Does anyone have any experience (first or second hand) with the EO 2x125+1x110 frames? We have a skater over here who is interested in them. She's worried about both the length and height of her frames, but doesn't want to use smaller wheels.

I've got a personal bias against mixing wheel sizes, but I'd like to give her some feedback based on actual experience instead of my bias if that is at all possible.

(Right now she has a 3x110+1x90, and she's reaching too far forward on the crossovers due to the length, so length is a concern. She doesn't have ankle problems with her current frames, but my understanding is that it might have come up in the past with a higher mount.)

I don't have experience with them, but if you look at the numbers on that EO frame, the overall length (tip to tip of the wheels) will be longer than a 13.2" 4x110 setup with a similar deck height. If her current setup is already too long, there is a good chance that the EO setup will also be too long.

I agree with your bias against mixed wheels sizes. The smaller wheels don't flex as much as the bigger wheels in the corners so you always seem to get the teeter tauter thing going.

Agreed to the third on the mix&match of wheels. Even aside from flex differences, the profiles of the wheels can also be hard to match up. Mixing 110 and 100's can be pretty safe for smaller skaters that don't seem to put as much pressure down to flex the wheels, especially since many wheels are available in both sizes with similar or identical profiles (which kind of makes the WRWs nice since you can get different hubs in what is otherwise the same wheel.)

Buuuut... That lower deck height with the 2 bigger wheels sure does look attractive to me.

If she is having problems with length now, don't get this frame. Kufman is correct. 12.6 frame length is the same as 3x125 which is as long as a 4x110 wheel tip to tip. The frame she is on now is like having a 4x105 frame. A Powerslide Vi 11.8" 3x125 would work for her. We have 2 women on our team that were using 4x105 frames who are 11.8 frames and love them. They complained that the 12.6 version was too long.

We have a skater who is using that frames, she moved from 4x110 to 2x125x100.

I asked her about the height and she says that the frames is very similar to 4x110. This year she did 42km at 1:31:00 and last year his time was 1:40:00. She is going better in the practice indoor and outdoor.

Also she said good things about the weight, she said that the skates are so light right now.

You can see some pictures of her skates.

Good to hear. Any mention of the effects from differences in wheels? Especially indoor, since that issue can somewhat correct itself over time outdoor.

Default WoW!

WoW! The pics to those skates are very interesting! The one things that strikes me the most is that it's a 13.2 frame... which typically would be for a tall person (and I would venture to add, that skates mostly road)... the fact that she skates indoors well with them means that large frames can be cross over tamed ... NICE!

Next thing that comes into my mind is... I wonder how the skates would perform if she got rid of the middle wheel? The 2 wheel skate could be the future of inline skating, why not?

Out of curiosity... how tall is she and what is her weight? Ball park, just to juxtapose with the skates.

Thanks for sharing these pics.... I think they're quite enlightening!

Hi Pancho, sorry, I am still busy and I just read your message.

Her name is Adriana Cubo, she has 47 and she loves these frames.

Now she moved back to 4x100 because she is getting some lessons and her coach asked her to move back to to 4x100 for a while. She was using 3x110x100 before try the 2x125x110.

She was in the World Championship in China this year, I am sending some pictures to show you how she is!
