So confused about wheels
Hi Dave,

I know that you experiment a lot with different types of skates. I know that you use the wide trucks and even inlines skates. Is it hard to adapt to switching off? Do you recommend I stick with one for a while or just mix em all up. I would like to be able to skate on all different types of skates, but definitely want to learn to skate with wide trucks so I can grind. Also, what is the difference between the adjustable toe stops and the ones that have the stem that screws in?

: : I just put in new bearings and I will let you know how it goes. I had a pretty good session today. I am going to get some of Rollergirls vert skates with the wide sure grip trucks. I wonder how long it will take to get used to the wider trucks. I am guessing they are a lot less responsive?

: Turning is harder at first but you get used to it.
