Default Ancient Inline Skate Questions

Hello to all,

I'm brand new here and hopeful that I can learn from you all.
I've been skating in the same skates for about 30 years. My original Bravo Blades have held up very well, but are now making all kinds of rattling noises, which I think are due to the worn pivot points on the skate with a brake. For those who have never seen these skates, they have hard plastic boot and a rear brake that descends when you push your right foot forward. This feature is one reason I've never gotten new skates; I like being able to keep all my wheels on the pavement when I'm braking.

Unfortunately, the noise is just getting louder and I'm forced to consider my options. If I could get these repaired I would leap at the chance, but I suspect that parts would be nearly impossible to find. Does anyone have any suggestions about this?

Or I could try another skate with a rear brake. I've tried dragging one foot and even when younger it didn't go well. At this point I'm not enthusiastic about trying to master that skill. Any suggestions about the kinds of skates that would be suitable? Any chance that some company in the world makes skates like the Bravo Blades?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Doc
