Re: Yes, it's time to turn the lights out

Sorry, I've been meaning to write this for a while...

Many thanks Steve and everyone behind, and in front of the scenes! I am sad to see this place go, but I completely understand why.

Re: where to get spacers for micro bearings?

I just managed to buy wheels & micro bearings on ebay, without thinking of getting spacers for them, too... doh! who sells these in London? Or is there anyone with a spare set of 10 for a drink? I have a heap of spacers - not sure if they're the right size though. Are you coming Tatem on Sunday...

I think there are actually 2 bolts that hold it in place, but agreed...I'm not sure about it either!

Re: Roller Marathon at the BLITZ Festival, 26th August 2013

Great! I have registered :-)

Since you're going to the trouble of measuring (that's dedication), you might want to drop Rick a PM to check whereabouts you should be trundling along. Something like 1m from the inside line is where you roll along, but he can clarify.

Excited!!!

Hey Phil! This sounds really good. Out of interest, how long is the circuit? I remember reading somewhere that this would be under marathon distance.

Re: Skate bag for cycling.

Perhaps have a chat with David at CBR? There are lots of nice Dakine bags that are quite functional. I've got something similar to this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=dakine+cyclone&_sacat=0 Perhaps a bit much for carrying just skates, but a nice bag nonethel...

Re: The Great Scottish Skate

You can speak to me :-) We keep some stock in, and will probably have something that will fit you.

PM me your email address and I'll send you some details.

It's usually a lot harder than this to convince someone into a skinsuit!
