Re: Shanghai2008 - slalom world championships recognised by FIRS

wait so you're saying that Shanghai won't be the IFSA championship? Will it still be co-run by IFSA? Also, not to rekindle that old argument, but I've noticed that some IFSA supporters like to go around and try to censor or throw mud at public conversations that don't fit their gospel. I don't know ...

are there any korean frames that are smaller than 231mm (closer to 219) but that have a rocker built in so you can put all 72mm wheels in and not have to find 68 wheels?

if so i want those.

219ish frame with rocker built in

Anyone know of a frame smaller than 231 that has a rocker built in?

The seba 219 requires 68/72 wheels to do a rocker, and 68s are a pain to find. If there was a frame with the rocker built in, i could do all 72 wheels.

iPhone Slalom Training Assistant

Alright, i'm a total geek, in case you didn't know. Most of you probably only know i'm into skating, but my other passion is making rich media applications. Well, i just got an iPhone, and spent all night writing a tool to pick random tricks for me to practice. I figured i'd make it useful to other ...

Hey guys, its getting close!!! hope to see many of you.

Just a note. I was skating at the venue for battleus yesterday, and its quite smooth. Indoor wheels might be a good investment.
