"Looking at the video... yeah that's bad.  It would appear to me that the bolts are either too long and bottom out before they can tighten the frame, or there's some serious thread issue keeping them from being tightened.  Either…"

"Hi Matt Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. The frame doesn't appear to have any cracks, but the bolts have never really felt right. They dont seem to fit securely against the frame, and it's almost like they are not long enough or…"

Matt Egan replied to shane anders's discussion K2 Radical 100 - frame flex
"Is it the frame or the boot?  The frame should be a one-piece metal bracket, basically.  If it's broken it should be pretty obvious that it's broken. If there's movement between the frame and boot, it sounds like…"

K2 Radical 100 - frame flex

Hi,I'm a beginner speed skater, training up for Berlin in September. I have been using K2 radical 100's for about six months, about 4 - 6 hours training per week.The last few weeks had been having horrible technique/stability problems, especially with my left skate.Anyway, I went to change my wheels this week, and noticed that the frame had a fair amount of side to side movement both at the back and front insertion points ( where the frame bolts onto the boot). Even though the bolts were fully…See More

"It's just something I won't pay that much given my income; just like I don't go to restaurants and instead eat hot-dogs in corner stores for cheap. I hope someone else replies. *thumb up*"

"sounds a bit inconvenient for you. I understand.   Inline Marathons are decreasing in availability and frequency. I guess I would rather pay a little more than have another one disappear from the calendar. Thanks for your reply..."

DynV Montrealer replied to Michael's discussion Rollerblade Tempest 100 questions
"I have some 110 (Tempest). It took a few sessions, of 2:30 each, before the last 15-30 mins were not quite unpleasant due to my ankles. I also read the advice that I should only push toward the heel or middle of the foot. I now actively think from…"

theDonnybrook replied to Reinis's discussion About skate boot position and fit
"No ratchets on the binders? That may be part of the problem, prevents you from getting the boots tight. Is there any kind of lever mechanism on the straps? Only other suggestion would be to add velcro to the inner boot part that is moving so it…"

Reinis replied to Reinis's discussion About skate boot position and fit
"I use any kind of socks - casual everyday socks mostly. I tryed to tigthen the boots in various ways but it does not change a thing. Can you give any specific tips how to tighten the skates? I start by tightening the ropes, then lower lock and then…"

theDonnybrook replied to Reinis's discussion About skate boot position and fit
"How deep is your knee bend?  It shouldn't really happen if the boot is tightened correctly.  What kind of socks?  Not really bad, just annoying, can cause blisters."

"Same wheels I'm using right now.  I get between four and six months out of them, rotating regularly, and doing 70 to 80 miles a week.  Summer is tough when it gets light earlier.   I have to slow way down to avoid being…"

"Boots just arrived today (been in the country for less than 24 hours.) Yeah, the wheels aren't the best, but they're good enough for practice at this point.  I'm not so happy with the frame position, too far back, but…"

Reinis replied to Reinis's discussion About skate boot position and fit
" I did try that couple of times but it comes back in this position as soon as I do some deep pushes or duck down. Is that a bad thing anyway? Because as long as opinions go - there is no specific way it should be.. "
