my skates now...
: : These are my skates now except I also added toe guards to them since I'm killing my toes doing the handplants. I've sewed in snug ties to them too lol. You can sort of see by the small stoppers on them that the tip is just below my trucks. When I had the bell ones on, when I hit a truck grind, it would hit the stopper too and that would throw me into the bowl. Thats why I asked! But I could take my sandblaster and sand it down? I donno what those are called lol.
: I understand. You've got really small stoppers. Which reminds me that there used to be some roller skaters who sawed off a piece of their stoppers. There are also some roller skaters who don't use stoppers at all.

hi guys, i use cutdown wheels as stoppers. there handy for clambering up the wateralls in our bowls when im puffed out.
cheers h.

: : My coworker is talking me into some motorcross classes. Sounds like fun, but the money, plus I'm not sure if anything compares to skating.
: For me, my motorbike is strictly for transport purposes. I mainly use it to get to ramps where it si very inconvenient to get to by public transport.
