Borrow long frames for Matsger course this weekend?

Postby Naomi » Tue Jun 01, 2004 9:17 am

any chance anyone has any that I can borrow for the weekend?

I tried 5 wheelers at Big Skate Europe and found that some drills are harder in longer frames, so would like to get the most out of this weekend.

if anyone can lend any, could you let me know?

cheers.

Yeah, many of the drills are massively harder in speedskates, especially the really long 5x84mm frames (340mm) and doing crossover crazy eights. That's what tires my ankles out much more than the low cut boots.

Still, your weight and edge control is so good you shouldn't suffer nearly as much as the rest of us. Then again, if you have low cuff boots you'll take a fair bit of strain because of skating in FSKs so much. FSKs have so much ankle support because of the jumping they're designed for.

Didn't Alan buy Rick's 5x80mm frames? Maybe you could borrow them. You can also borrow my RB lightning 05s if you prefer those, the frame is 4 wheel but is 285mm, I guess you may as well use FSKs as they aren't that much longer.

Yup, nearly all long frames won't be UFS and will need some kind of adapter - same with the lightning frames as they also conform to speed frame mounting standards. I know it's possible since Khalil put lightning frames on his deemax, but I'm not sure what he did to fit them.

Oh, what suffering I have to look forward to, I'm the complete opposite to the above :)

Nomes, I have the 320DH Chassis for FSKs that you can borrow if that's any use.
