: Nice Jay. Did you get those from Rollergirl? What are you going to do with the plate? Any jump bars or grind plates?

Hey Robert,
No, unfortunately RollerGirl no longer offers ramp skates on her site. :(. She seems to be entirely focused on Derby these days. We couldn't even get her to hit a park with us @ 08 RC SK8 Park Tour.
I got them through Check out my post from yesterday "Lee's Visit Pics & Vids" or words to that effect. I put link in to page with my skates on it through
The picture they have has a Jump-Bar & they have toe plugs. What came did NOT have Jump-Bar & had Toe-Stops. I was actually glad though cuz I know I wou;d've had to taken off Jump-Bar & I HATE Toe-Plugs, so it worked out. I did up-grade to bigger wheels & ABEC-9 bearings, but other than that they're Stock. I was getting plate slides my 1st session on 'em, so I'm pretty Happy with them.
Hope you have an AWESOME Birthday, Bro.
: : nice hairdo lol. ;-D

: : cool sk8s! i bet ur stoked. I loooooooved the wide trucks when i got mine. I started out with the narrow ramp trucks. it was so much more stable. i clipped my heels a few times but not too hard to adjust. i put the softest bushings in there and they were great!!!! what was REALLY great was the sk8board wheels. they were heaven. have fun!!!!!!

: : : HAPPY NEW YEAR, Everybody!!!
: : : Hope everyone had a Fun AND Safe New Year's Eve. Lee & I were VERY fortunate to have my Amazing wife, Dawnie, be our Designated Driver last night so we could indulge. Pretty cool of her as she's pregnant & it was pretty cold last night.
: : : Anyway I thought you guys (& girls) might want to see my new SK8s. It's a TOTALLY new Set-Up for me as I've always skated stock rollerskates that I just slightly modified.
: : : These new SK8s are also STOCK, but intended for Vertical Skating.....And THEY WORK!! Check it out:
