Any roller skaters here? (No Inlines-Quads only)
I used to be a big time rink rat when I was a kid. Speed skater-5 times a week. Had a blast.
I was thinking of getting back into it just to keep in a bit better shape seeing how my hockey days are behind me.

Anybody here still goof around with quads? (Cant stand inlines )
What are the newer speed skates like?
Any suggestions?

4 time speed skate champion, 3 time dance, held the speed skating record for 2 years. Ran a rink, was a dj at the rink. Skated 7 days a week for at least 4 hours a day. Why yes, I have done a little. Riddell boots, Chicago pro plates with jump bars. Went through more wheels than NASCAR. 30 years ago. Now, can still move, just crackle when I do

Oh, all on wood floors, now that was skating!!

I went to a Halloween party once with my roller skates on and no clothes on. I was supposed to be a pull toy.

We actually have one less than a mile down the road. A total of I think 3 in the metro area. None with wooden floors though. I think it could make a good come back if done right.

How'd you guys set the speed skating records? Was it fastest time for 10 laps or something?

This movie anything like it was? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0403455/

To think this was all before I was born!

I grew up on quads. Also played roller hockey in the late 70's had the Chicago trucks with the i think they were Hyde boots and a pair of douglas Snider boots on my hockey skates. I haven't put on a pair of skates in over 20 yrs.and i could put them on today and it would be like yesterday it's like riding a bike once you learn you never forget.You Da-Man

Learned on quads, now in lines. 70 yrs old and still can outskate nearly all the young ones. Lots of paved bike trails around here so I go nearly every day. Long Live Inlines.I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
