Wink onewheelskate goes from 80mm to........125mm

125mm on the onewheelskate. I purchased a RAZOR scooter with the new 125's
The RAZOR now has my old 80mm and my boys get a new RAZOR. My onewheelskates now have 125's.
The snow and ice around here will keep me from road testing them but soon I'll be rolling large

The above image is a mock up.

Default sideways clapskate or lateral freedom

this is a sideways clapskate or lateral freedom. Your heel is free to rotate off of
the wheel frame through the lateral plane not the vertical plane.
Why do this? The end of your push is now behind you.
p.s. these are very dangerous!

Why not just smash my ankles with a sledgehammer, that would be quicker!

Good for you - as long as I can keep all my wheels, I'm all smiles

Do you skate long skates on these or just around the block skates?

Default explanation v2.0

OK. So why do this? (for inline and ice, I'll do ice blades when I get a set)
I wanted the onewheelskate dynamic* but wanted to go faster than 4-10 mph steady state speed of the onewheelskates.
So the apple falls from the tree. I think what would happen if I could use a rack of wheels (for more speed) and pivot over the ball of the foot like the onewheelskates? ......inline skates, casters, springs and duct tape.... voila:
They work well above expectations.
caution caution they are ankle breakers.

p.s. this is now posted as GNU freeware I haven't done a patent on this. Oh well. freely i received freely i give.

the specs are at: http://dcrinlineskates.com


* p.p.s OK. So why do this?
I wanted the onewheelskate dynamic*
The onewheelskate dynamic is thus: Because I am on two unicycles things are going on that I do not have the Newtonian physics to explain. But when you push off one foot that foot rotates in the direction of the anticipated foot. Which means that at the end of the push both feet are on the same line and pointing the same direction.

any comments will point me in the right direction.

G_d willing in the next several days.
this link is to a 21 sec vid of the onewheelskate which shows the body position of either the onewheelskate or the dcrinlineskates dynamic.

the onewheelskate would be good for cross training, a change of pace. If one would maintain the inline skate technique (pushing out to the side) one would be on point instead of being on a 13 inch platform.

the dcrinllineskate is only good for training for the onewheelskate.

Default why I'm in the speed skating forum....

I raced in the 2007 Napa Vly inline 42k/21k
, I raced the first 1/4 mile then survived the next 13 miles.

My first inline skate event was THE 2006 CALIFORNIA ROADSKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Canada Road, San Mateo, Ca.
October 29, 2006

one wheel fell off of one of my onewheelskates at the 5k mark for the next 5k I had to keep constant pressure on that skate to keep the wheel from leaving me. 90 min for 10k. I think I'm good for a pr in my next 10k.

G_d willing I hope to do some of the cora.org inline skating events this spring like the april race and then Napa Inline 42k in july.

I'm a back...way back of the pack participant of inline skate events.

The inline skating community is the friendliest group I have had the pleasure of being in the midst (end) of. In the last 30 yrs I have been a runner ( 5k 15:00 , 10k 31:00, 42k 20:29) A triathalete (worlds toughest 3 times ) Duathalite for Quintana Roo, when Dan owned it. Ride and tie (podium at world championships) xc ski racer ( elite farwest, the norskys were the tops then from UNR and Audun he was, well he was from valhalla and Odin sent him to teach us how to rethink xc ski racing.

so you guys are great, friendliest group
