Default $5.50

haven't really been skating much lately (getting back into this has been harder and less enjoyable than i thought), but it's still hard to pass a cheap deal.



got these at a flea market for $2 sunday. the boots are supposed to be a size 10, but i can't begin to get my feet in them. got some stretchers in them now but i think it's a lost cause. they're some kind of riedel.

somebody here told me what the plates are from another cheap pair i have that had them, but i forgot. the rear trucks are bent anyway. i don't know how you do that.

70mm krypto reds. well worth it if i can't use the rest. probaly gonna put them on another cheap boot/plate find for street skates.



got these in a thrift store for $3.50 yesterday. looking through old threads here i guess it was a common package at one time.

labeda pro377 boot. size 10 again, but i can actually get into them though tight. they'll get a shoe stretch try next. if i can use them they'll be for a second rink pair or my main street skate boot replacement. gotta dye them black though.

pacer hard candy plate. the stopper is broke off one. i like stoppers on my skates so i guess i look out for some kind of parts deal on a single plate. for some reason a cusion is missing off each truck. don't know how you skate them that way. they lock up as soon as you try to move.

weasel wheels. never heard of them, but i guess they'll be part of the extras collection, or use them for idlers.

i ought to get a street pair going out of this at least. maybe getting a little street time in will make the trips back to the rink (when i can get there) more enjoyable.

omega. i had to look through old threads, 'cause i have another pair i got cheap with the same plate and i asked then what they were. the back truck on both plates is bent though.

the krypto's are keepers. been a fan since my skateboard days. i already have 57 and 65mm sets of reds. i'm figuring these 70's will be good for if i try the skating for exercise, circling the park deal.

been doing some mixing and matching. the wheels are so big i need to pick up some sex bolts/t-nuts to give them pivot room. i put them on another thrift store find i got some years back (the other skates with omega plates, but with size 11 boots). it's looking like i should end up with a decent outdoor set up for about $13-15.

that's the only name i knew them by. when i went to the hardware store i think they had them labeled as binder screws or something like that.

i got them a size too short though, so another day or two before i can test out the setup.

tried the labeda boots on again with the laces off. there's room for my toes but they're just real narrow,so i'm hoping a bit of stretching and a looser tie will make them useable too. i'm not gonna take those skates apart yet. if i can find/replacethe broken and missing parts i'll leave them set up as is except a wheel change maybe. i may still get two pairs of useable skates out of this.

Not sure how you plan to make use of "binder screws" but if they get any stress in them - they will FAIL. Not rated to handle any more than SLIGHT axial load!! Outdoor skating will KILL them, and maybe you.

i think it'll be ok. the plate's actually mounted to the boot with two big bolts under each truck. i don't like it 'cause you can grab the stopper and the boot and see the play bettween the plate and boot longitudly (i think that's the right word), which seems like it would affect turning responce



so i'm putting the bolts in the two wing looking spots like it probaly should have been anyway (though both skates with these plates are mounted the same way. the bolt was too long on both pairs to me too. it was touching the truck from the bottom so i cut them down).

i can't see them failing. i got the steel ones (there are aluminum and brass ones also), but even if they do, the original bolts are still in place.

Default Main bolt in center has you covered

I did not know these were supplemental to the Omega center mount bolt.
Should not be a problem in this scenario.
Nice way to keep weight down too using aluminum
