Default A new frame

Another DA 45(30 degree plate). Deeper frame, same length as usual.

I have one more frame to make then no more for a while. They take time.

Did change some stuff on my long frame outdoor skates, cushions and trucks.

Trying out the converted SA trucks and more spacers to get away from the wheels and boot bite. Testing tomorrow, if they work in the rink they will be fine on the road.

About an hour after warming up had these dialed in. During assembly a shim was installed on each kingpin. After about 20 minutes of tuning time, I took them out, it was just a little too much caster. During milling iirc I took the extra clearance out, but from habit put the shims on anyway. Anyway back to normal handling(for me anyway). I love a DA 45 with good manners.

That is looking good!

Do you really need the extra height on the outdoor variant?

With my standard length frame, 8", the wheels that are 75mm or larger will hit the boot. On my long frames, a 1/4" spacer on top of the frame stops all the boot bite. The front wheels being further out and that helps too. The DA45 trucks are the tallest and might not require the spacers on the long frames, but on the shorter frames, definitely. Extra clearance from the inline boots has to be taken into account as well.
I need to put some time outdoors on the long frames/plates to see if I like skating that length frame. If not, I'll go back to my old frame for outdoors and just add the spacers.

It did work ok...but even I have my limits. I shimmed them in to shape and tested them out, my push doesnt match the length, plate needs an owner with a 14 or larger foot and a side to side slotted 195mm inline mount boot. Too long for me. But im quite happy around 8 1/8" axle centerline. The long frame is app 8 5/8" on axle centers.
