That's what I thought ... and that's why Irene (and I and others) use ACS hangers. Getting hangers that fit the small pivot holes of current rollerskate plates, or grinding the pivots to be smaller in diameter to make them fit is all a hassle. It would be so great if future rollerskate plates would have pivot holes the same size as skateboard truck plates ... then we simply could use any skateboard truck and pivotcup. Kingpins also should be compatible. But since freestyle skateboarding seems to have died, there aren't many small skateboard trucks available; this Indy 101 and the small Tracker truck are the only ones I know of.

I'm really looking forward to seeing things improve :)
