|Welcome Back, Dave!
The skates look great. Funny, I still have a pair of those Tracker aluminum baseplates, you did a good job, they look just like them. What did you use for grind bars? Have you taken them out for a test run, yet? I'm getting ready to set up another pair for myself as well. I'm cutting the toes off of old plastic inline boots to put over the toes of my Riedell boots, to prevent wearing through and to protect my toes when knee sliding. I almost broke my big toe once.
Did you add any additional heel to your boots? I know they come pretty flat-footed. Roll on, roll strong!
Bring it on back!
