"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…"
"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…"

"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…"
"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."
"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…"
"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…"
"It would appear that, based on the result list we had
Total: 1341 skaters involved.
Unfortunately, it is another significant drop in attendance... I believe the registered skaters in 2013 were…"
