*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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 cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. 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

Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

I am going to assume you mean flip axles trucks?? Like this??



If so you will need 1 set of 7mm bearings and 1 set of Pro Line flip trucks or 1 set of Boen flip trucks..

Bring lots of money. Those are not cheap.

Stay on the 8mm trucks..

Flip trucks can run 50-100 each.. IF anyone wants to sell them.. Which is not often..

Jamsk8ing on trucks that cost as much as thesk8s did.... Not my idea of a good thing to do..

Default I don't think so..

All the Reactors I have seen have 8mm axles. Riedell does not make anything with 7mm axles that I am aware of.. In fact they do not list any size options on their price list.. for plates or bearings.. (My list is brand new BTW)

Lazer X-Tech trucks? They fit Boens, come stock with flips and are about $2.50 each.

Ok, more than that but they're cheap.

Sorry to butt in again Doc

A Lazer X Tec while it looks like a Boen from a distance its not a Boen clone despite the talk on this forum. The trucks don't fit prolines or Boens even though we all wished and hoped they would.

There is a few x tecs floating around the USA now so it is easy enough for you to try out to see for yourself, it may be possible to make them work with changes to the cups or cushions.
