Default Time

to get some new Shamans. I got a year and a half out of the last set. I regrooved and now it is time to do it again but they will come out to about 56 or 57 mm so I'll have to get some new ones! Awesome wheels.

This reminds me, I was going to build a wheel to test bearings and wheels, not going to happen. Way too busy now to get into it. Getting ready for this years production from my tiny little wood shop. Having to expand into the basement now, not enough room for all the saws. This is not a socialist workshop... LOL

I skated Scotts years ago. The only difference I saw from Scotts and shamans is tread life. The cost of what I want from Scott is way out of my price range, Shamans get it done for a good price, and with no pigment. Ordering without pigment is expensive, so the wheels are out of my spec.
I gave a used up set of Shamans away the other day. I could hook them them up well to the floor, they were just a bit short after being regooved a couple of times. Mounted them on my son's skates, he couldn't get them to hook up on the same floor at all. He is running bont plates/reidell boots. Suspension tuning can make a huge difference in traction. He had to go back to a much softer wheel to hook up again, green Shamans.
I tested two sets of Scotts, one 96a or so and some that were a bit harder. The harder wheels would only hook up on new floor coat. The 96s hooked up fine.
So it's always a combination of setup and wheels. My setup works well with most floors and wheels.

Yes, one set was Fan Jets Enforcers, the other set was Super Enforcers. I kept them for a couple of months. Could not hurt them. The Enforcers were great, traction and feel exactly like the Fan Jets but longer life. I get about a year and a half out of my Shamans. Fan Jets were slick in 7 to 8 sessions(app 35 to 40 hours).
At some point, because of the clearance and deck height, if I buy anything exotic, it will be larger wheels and probably a one time thing. Most likely HeBeGebe wheels.

This got me to thinking about wheels. I think I might get another set of Purple Power Plus wheels. I don't go fast and need ultimate grip in the corners. My last set of these did fine for me before, and as my strength and condition continue to go down, I will be less likely to push their limits much. I love the slotted mag hub of the Power Plus.

I ran some of those too. So what works for you floor wise? On session skates the softest I run is 92/93, any softer and I bog down.

My old anabolix tire on Peanut Hub still work fine. No problems with them. Just thought I'd get the Power Plus just for fun. I most skate on concrete these days. The rinks with better floors have stupid rules. Plus the concrete is not bad.

Im finally working on my outdoor skates again. 73mm wheels and still getting a little boot bite. Skated them at the rink last Sunday. Going to change the spacers and try again. They are working pretty well other than that but need to take them outside now.

Mort, you would DIE. The nicest floor in San Antonio, Rollercade, won't let you skate. Can't go fast, can't go backward. So you hang in the middle and work on some stuff. They will likely tell you to stop. You can't f ing skate. It's a rink that likes beginner kids, and for that matter, beginner adults. It's like they HATE actual skaters. On the ONE night a week they toss those rules, Wednesday, it's so crowded, you can't move. Not cool. So I skate in Leon Valley. Cement floor, just got a coat of urethane. Normal folks, normal rules. Actually my closest rink too. Not that that matters. Nothing is too far in San Antonio, and by the time I skate, traffic is down.

That really sucks :/

We get kicked out at most rinks pretty easily when even the newer kids in the group skate at their comfot zone through crowds people. ^.^

Or the hockey stop noises turn people into fainting goats.

Very few rinks really care about a good skater who modulates speed based on environment of the floor or gives appropriate room when passing.

I kinda like a crowded floor though. Wednesday sounds fun

Early on, actually I think the first time I went there, I got away with going backward. I just told the floorguard I'm used to it, and used to keeping an eye on kids. He said OK. But the next time I went, the manager from hell was there, (whoever that is) and he told, no, not today. This manager will bounce you out. I'm sure there must be some story about this. I'll have to dig a little.

Like going backwards makes it impossible for a skater to see where they are going...

We went to this one rink that complained at us for the noise our hockey stops made, they thought we had special wheels to do that. So I put on their rentals and did the same things... even worse yet, that rink had hockey trophies in it, go figure...

There are some crazy ones out there.

I hate it when they try to corral our group to no backwards, or only in the center inside a small box... we got more maneuverability backwards than most skaters do forwards.

I think a lot of times when they ban backward skating it is because they don't want all the inexperienced skaters trying to copy the better backward skaters. And I guess I can somewhat understand that since it would lead to a lot of accidents if everyone tried to do what the better skaters do and lacked the knowhow.

But, of course, they can sometimes go way overboard about what they ban.
