Re: Seba, what bugs me!!

wow, and there's me thinking all this political bullish was out the window years ago. Fact is, both PS and Seba get shipments to their respective HQ's and dispatch to either distributors or shops directly. If you have a problem with your product, you need to go to the shop first, like any other purc...

Re: Need advice on freeskate wheels and bearings

The crazyglue was my idea, using the same compound as the racing crazy glue and using the hub and mould of the fsk wheels. I designed the graphics for them first and then applied the same theme across the whole Matter fsk wheels. So shape wise they are identical to the juices. I sadly never got to t...

Re: Powerslide S4

Nice input JB, I'll remember this for future skates and maybe do a harder top sheet on the tongue which will spread the pressure more evenly and be more resistant to wear.

Re: new hardcore evos 2011

bla bla bla...
but yes you're right about frames, frame size, wheels
Still, though, the hardcore is more an allround skate that the KSJ, and to be as light and cheaper is quite an achievement.

The true verdict is in the ride quality, and this, to be fair, has much to do this personal preference.

Re: Ideal frames for slalom?

Some people say that for slalom, the frame is the most important part of the skate. That is definitely a myth. Unquestionable the boot is the most important part of any skate. yes, I kind of agree, but you can still slalom in any boot with good slalom frames whereas, you can't really slalom with go...

Re: Ideal frames for slalom?

Smaller wheels=less moment of inertia=more reactive (quicker wipers for example) Bigger wheels=shallower angle of attack against asperities, more moment of inertia=smoother skating Pre-rockered also means the axle is slightly closer to the mounting points of the frames and is slightly stiffer (doubt...

Re: Ideal frames for slalom?

you're right 239mm compared with 243mm is not so much of a gain and means you're stuck with a banana setup. Also you have to buy 2 different size wheels and can only rotate them so much. Hence the pre-rockered frame idea. You're still stuck with a permanant banana (unless you're willing to drop a wh...

Not too well read up on this but anything with aluminium sounds a little soft, you want the hardest of materials to make good bearings (steel, ceramic). Could be wrong though.

Re: Attaching inlines to a backpack not designed for inlines

I attach mine to the bottom of the shoulder straps by the cuff buckles and they hang on my hips like revolvers.
It's plenty good enough.

Re: Skates to buy? £100-150

guys, stop bickering! Seba is trying to place an entry level freeskate on the market that isn't going to break within the first week, hats off to that! Powerslide is trying to do the same with a bit more quality that would appeal to good skaters as well. That's equally respectable. The price is righ...

I hang them, with their 45┬░C buckle, on the top band.

Right so hanging them down the shoulder straps work just as well and is more comfortable.

Re: Skates to buy? £100-150

I don't agree with the preference for softer shells, what is important for comfort is the shape of the shell, liner thickness / density and a good shock absorber.
