Re: Two piece axles won't come out

Have you had any joy removing the axles? Thought about your problem some more,and had a play about with a spare frame I have in the shed.. I used a quick release type clamp, and found that by clamping a nut (smaller than the bit I wanted to hold) on the non allen bolt side,I could get enough pressur...

Re: Two piece axles won't come out

1. Contact Rollerblade and see what they have to say about it..... If you don't have any joy. 2.You could apply some Cyanoacrylate (super glue) to the slot on the flat side and see if that holds well enough, if it does, you could use acetone (or nail polish remover)to soften the glue for clean-up......

Re: rocking my rocker

Why will the rain stop you from skating?

Slidey slide time.....find a quiet spot, wear gloves,pads,a wooly hat with a bobble on the top (optional) and enjoy! :)

Re: rocking my rocker

Hey For what it's worth, one 'relative' noob to another, I had a similar situation in relation to rockering a few months ago. I found that switching to a banana rocker made general skating 'awkward', so I switched back to flat and just tried to work on getting comfortable. I also found that it didn'...

I used to skate quads '...back in the day....', (when 'Hatchet Thatcher' was destroying the Country !) and only re-discovered skating when ...
