|Hey Irene I think that slider setup could be quite unstable just by the sheer height of it and the amount of sideways presure on them while sliding.I still think for weight,price and ease of build the setup I posted of my skates would be prety hard to beat.Dont want to sound like a selfritius wanker,but they worked out a treat in every way,and you can set up the rails at any height and profile you care to cut them at.Just my opinion,I'm prety exited about them still.
: This is what I had in mind for my new setup. Not sure how it will work, but it's the lightest design so far. Easy on materials, just need long bolts, extra nuts, flat metal plate (for support) goes under the skateboard rails cut to fit, recessed nuts to attach rails. I will try stacking bearing spacers over the long bolts for added support. Thoughts, comments, snide remarks?
