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 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

Default New rig help

I got all new rig from Simmons. New Rush boots.

Basic question: frame mounts with axle hex to inside. Am I correct, as is only easy way to adjust with skates on.
Thanks

You have to make sure the bolts fasten when rotating in the direction of the forward rolling wheels. Otherwise you could loose an axle during skating.

If the frames are made so they are different from each other, that would be yes. But I haven't seen any frames made that way in years. It tends to unscrew the axle on one side.

All the frames I see lately, only the left is easy to tighten with them on.

I know LSR and Powerslide frames (at least the Trinity frames) have axles from different sides on both frames.

I run LSR Vanquish frames and have never had an issue with axles loosening up. I also do not over-tighten as I have seen people do.

I mount my wife's Bont 3 point frames (S-Frame) with one foreward and the other 'backward' so that the wheels can easily be swapped while she's on the skates. I've been doing this for years and never had any axle loosening issues.
