Re: Trix misfit

I'm in size 43 Trix and should have gone down one size according to the sizing chart based on the precision of mm measures. According to an email comment from Stacy at SkateCrazy, the Trix run a little large. I consider that comment annoyingly vague...lol. If you follow the sizing chart provided by...

Re: 165mm Mounting Vrs 195mm mounting

Oh i see. Thanks guys :).Ur trix looks great btw. Thanks, I love this setup. People ask me all the time where they can get skates like that, and I have to explain that it's a Frankenstein of Seba boots, Adam's Inline frame, and Bont wheels. And, that it's a roughly $850 setup. "Oh" I do 1...

Re: 165mm Mounting Vrs 195mm mounting

165mm versus 195mm is the distance between the mounting bolts holding the boot to the frame. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b113/tomwood2/skatestuff/sebasmall.jpg Most rec and Seba skates use 165mm. The newer speed skates use 195mm. Both the frame and the boot have to use the same mounting distan...

Re: Two piece axles won't come out

Maybe jam the flat headed side with something sharp like an icepick at the edge of the head? Either that, or use a piece of very rough sandpaper under your thumb to hold it still while turning the other side.

Re: Music to skate to

I got tired of listening to 'classic rock' so I went searching through the radio stations and came upon a top 40 station. It's more like top 10, since that seems to be the extent of the playlist. So I went to Billboard and listened to a few selections. The top 50 or so break down into ballads, count...

Re: Hello from Austin, Texas

I don't really remember. I think I tried some shoes in the different sizes and 43 felt right. I don't think Inline Warehouse had the mm charts.

Re: Hello from Austin, Texas

I don't mind the little bit of room in front of my toes, I meant that as a feature, not a bug. I just had custom molded speed skates done, and they came out too short. I have long toes that when they bend back the knuckles will rise and get rubbed against the roof of the boot. Ouch. They're having t...

Re: Hello from Austin, Texas

BTW, I asked Stacy at SkateCrazy if I could skate the size 42 skates on a hardwood floor (we have a handball court) to make sure the size 42 would work since my foot size is right at the maximum. She agreed to let me ship the boots (only) back to her for a replacement upsize if needed as long as the...

Re: Hello from Austin, Texas

My longest foot is 270mm the max recommended for size 42. There is still some wiggle room in front of my toes in the Highs.

Re: Hello from Austin, Texas

Hi Bebai! I've had the Trix for several months, and just got the Highs. The Trix are size 43 and ended up feeling too loose for slalom work because my feet can slide a little inside. I have different frames and was going to swap them out on the Trix depending on the type of skating I was doing, but ...

Hello from Austin, Texas

Hello, I've been skating the Austin veloway for about 19 months, and I'm about to take on slalom skating. I bought a pair of Seba Trix with different frames thinking I'd swap them out for the different uses, but that became tedious so I just bought some Seba Highs for slalom. I put some 4x100mm spee...
