*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Well, the wheels are new, very new but the build ... eh kinda unsure of where this build took place. The front mounts are rivets and the rear is like a t-nut (I tried to remove the insole and it broke so I quit there). The right skate is mounted way off center. Still stoked either way

Put a set of Fomac Premier wheels on and you got your self a great rhythm setup.

Fronts mounted with rivets are VERY common. A bit more so with closed toe boots, but I've seen it on PLENTY of boots that laced down to the toe. It was easier for the person mounting it, they'd simply rivet the things on the front end, and not need to jerk around with a tool to hold the front screws in. I hate rivet mounts with a passion, as they're difficult to remove. With skates like these, who cares? Pop some Supers on 'em, maybe some new bell stoppers and sell 'em to a session skater.
