Mr. T replied to DynV Montrealer's discussion Skating equipment to go on--bad--roads
"What is chatter from ?  When you go through a very bad, uneven, surface, smaller wheels pick up much more of that. Bigger wheels filter some of those irregularities out.  Sure, I had very high end frames, i.e., superstiff, but I have the…"

"Some things to consider with your blisters:  How were the boots laced and tightened?  Blisters tend to be caused by movement of your foot in the boot, it is possible that the boot isn't fitting right in the area of the blisters, and…"

"It's for the 9 nights I was looking at to stay for the whole thing."

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"Matt, I hope you are quoting prices for a week or so and not per night in your post above. For $1000/night I could stay at the Four Seasons hotel.  I checked not too long ago and at the Rio, the prices were around $160/night in that…"

"At this point hotels in Vegas are looking quite expensive for that week.  But, as it gets closer prices start to fluctuate and deals come out.  Otherwise it's looking to be at least $700 for even a decent place and $1200 to $2000 for…"

"I bought a pair of Rollerblade Tempest 110 a couple weeks ago. I did the run I mentioned in the OP and had a decent blister. Going on the very worn asphalt was much better. I almost fell as the wheel length was non-negligibly longer and when I…"

"On a different note... I think that the race in Las Vegas, early next year, will tell a lot about the state of our sport. In fact, Las Vegas in February is usually not particularly expensive and has enough accommodations to suit most budgets without…"

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"I try to stay at some of the nicest hotels because my family is often with me and they do not skate. So, at least, they get to stay in a nice and central location. Sure, if I accepted to stay at cheaper places, I could probably do one more race, but…"

"We don't stay in Duluth.  This year, we stayed in Superior, a whopping 5 miles from the DECC, literally just over the canal bridge and state line.  Place was called the Superior Inn.  Not great, but for $89/night without the…"

"I'll contact the chamber again, but so far my request have fallen on deaf ears."

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"Well. I have heard that before and seen that myself... Soon, the toy will be broken even for them as well since I do not think that they normally fill their hotels during NSIM weekend. Hence their policy is short-sighted."

Michael Pekarik replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"Unfortunately I was sick this year.  I do like the marathon, but I don't like the cost of housing, that is pretty much a deal killer, but the hotels and chamber of commerce just don't seem to get it as they raise the rates for the…"

Mr. T replied to DynV Montrealer's discussion Skating equipment to go on--bad--roads
"As far as my experience goes.. wheels up to 90mm are not good on bad roads. I will cut some slack to this statement of mine, depending on how much one weighs. If you are over 90kg (200lbs) or even over 105kg (over 235lbs) like me.. not a chance with…"

Mr. T replied to Mr. T's discussion The end of outdoor inline skating in the US as we know it.
"It would appear that, based on the result list we had Marathon: 1054 Half-Marathon: 260 Combined: 27 Total: 1341 skaters involved. Unfortunately, it is another significant drop in attendance...  I believe the registered skaters in 2013 were…"

"Not uncomfortable, just a bit terse today. It needs to be the weekend already. I would expect the wheels on the Vi SUV to wear well as they wouldn't be cheap to replace, and are designed to be used off-road. If you were to go that route,…"
