"there is like an inch of open space between the outside of the inner boot toe and the inside of shell toe. That's asking for a dangerously squirmy ride. It looks like they are using the same size shell for multiple sizes of skates, e.g. Size…"

"I live in the Atlanta area. I did ask a local skate shop and they had never heard of it either, but the guy behind the counter seemed like maybe he was kind of new.  "

"I've never heard of wheels softening. Many people skate in high temperatures without problem. If you can get a harder wheel, perhaps that's a solution. Ask the vendor for the maximum temperature (and go elsewhere if they're not…"

Wheels melt on hot asphalt / pavement?

I recently had an issue with my wheels melting (softened to the point where they became somewhat squashed and unable to roll - ruining the wheels and causing me to walk back home). I assume it was due to skating on hot asphalt. I have not read anywhere about this, and so cannot find at what temperature I should not skate outdoors, or how much durometer plays a role in this. I want to purchase new wheels, but don't want this to happen again. Any suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else? Was…See More

"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..."
