Default Ipswich plates & wheels (HeBeGb)

Here are some pics of a set of plates that won’t get wheel bite��

Just Built


Before Testing at Albany Creek


One Session down, no blisters, cramping - stayed upright (bonus) - more importantly no wheel-bite

After photobucket started charging 400$ a year, well, nobody can post an image because they were the third party image hostes, I’m guessing you uploaded an image to this site as the reason it doesn’t show, this site doesn’t host images, but Postimg.org is a free image hosting site that works, for example

I uploaded the image to skatelogforum and linked it in to the post? I can see them, maybe you have to be logged in?

This forum doesn’t want to host images, it wants a third party, the fact that you can isn’t relevant, it asks you specifically to use a third party, and as I was explaining, photobucket shut down free image hosting, but postimg.org works great, and I think following forum guidelines is ok


Here's how to embed a photo in a message in the SkateLog Forum:

When you are posting or replying to a message, one of the icons above the message box is a yellow picture of two mountains and a sun (it's the fifth icon from the right). That's the "Insert Image" tool.
Move the cursor to the point in your message at which you want to insert the photo.

Select the Insert Image tool.

In the box that pops up, type in the full Web site address (URL) of your photo. The URL must begin with "http" and end with either .jpg or .gif

Select "OK"
YOUR PHOTO MUST ALREADY BE ON THE WEB:
Note that the photo you want to insert in a message must already be posted on the Web. If you are not sure how to get your photo on the Web, try using one of the Free Image Hosting Web Sites.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE AN IMAGE FILE:
You must insert the image file itself, not the Web page the image is on, therefore the URL must end with either .jpg or .gif. Inserting the URL of the Web page containing the image will not work, therefore the image file you insert cannot not end in .htm or .html (because those are Web pages, not image files).

LINKING TO A MESSAGE INSTEAD OF EMBEDDING IT:
Some of the free Web sites that let you upload and store your photos will not allow you to hot link to those photos. If that is the case, using the "Insert Image" tool will not work. Instead you can use the "Insert Link" tool - that's the one with the globe and the chain link - the eighth tool from the right. When you use the Insert Link tool, you will only be linking to the image, not displaying it in this forum.

NO HOT-LINKING TO IMAGES ON OTHER PEOPLE'S WEB SITES:
We have a policy in this forum that does not allow hot-linking to third party images to display them in this forum. You can hot-link to images on your own Web site, and to your own images on one of the free image hosting sites, but you cannot display other people's photos in this forum without their permission. You may, however, include a regular link to an image on someone else's Web site. For more information about our forum policies see SkateLog Forum Guidelines.

Default Embedded images

Well, it seems the forum software does have a basic photo album capability, as the images are embedded directly. However, unless people are logged in, they can't be seen. Other good places to put your pictures for public access are DropBox or OneCloud.

Apart from that... holy cow, how big are those wheels?

I'm logged in and can't see the images.
Posting.org does not appear to be a good link.
FYI: I use flickr.com.

Default I use Tinypic....

and it works as well as any other hosting site I have used. It's free and easy. It lets you choose the size you want before uploading. 640x480 is the best choice for forum posting. It even gives an exact copy-and-paste url specifically for forums, no adding anything to it.

Default Wheels and then there are wheels!

I didnít notice the extra height and the setup is very light. The one thing I enjoyed was no wheel bite. On Boens I run a harder cushion and a HDPE spacer between the plate and boot and donít lean, especially on just one foot (dodging traffic).

The larger diameter gives a larger contact patch, which, in turn, gives you more grip. And to the OP, those wheels look COOL!

I see the pics now.

As you said, no chance of wheel bite:
Given the steep kingpin the input/output ratio is small. Also the front wheel is pushed forward so it has to turn less.

Oh and those monster truck wheels look cool.

It does, but the server doesn't have the storage capability to store a lot of images. That's why they ask you to host elsewhere.

Lately I've been using ImgBox.

Ahhh. Machining chatter. I know it too well. Looks like the final cut was done with a profile tool.

Yep (one of the first sets of hubs I made)
