Finally did it!
Awsome Irene, luv your work, they should slide a treat.

cheers joe

: Thanks to all the inspiration gotten from all you rollerskaters out there (you know who you are), I have finally put my new ride together. After much contemplation (procrastination) and several changes, they're done. Pleased with how it turned out, I'm not sure when I will have the chance to test ride them. Our city parks are closed and the indoor ones require me to hitch a ride. I hope to ride them this Sat, oh please....make it happen. It's also rainy and cold outside. I realise why it took me years to do's alot of work with just a jigsaw and a drill in my apt, using a chair as a worktable.
: The final setup: Riedell Retro Sport boot, K2 inline toecap, Tracker plate, Krux baseplate, Indy 109mm hangars, Crap bearings, unknown blank wheels.
: Sliders: Home Depot chrome 5/8" sq. towel bar ($.99 each) and Powell Rib Bone rails.
: Total weight (each skate): 4 pounds
: I will post the weight of each component (for those who care to know)
: Soon I hope to slide around corners with pool coping!
