Wheel Combinations
« on: February 10, 2015, 12:28:09 PM »
Ever wonder why skaters have different wheel setups?  Here is a website that shows a few of them.

http://www.rollersandrevellers.com/rollers/lowdown-wheels/pushers  This one is my favorite because it adds a little explanation.


It's all about finding what works for you as a skater.  the set up can change based on your weight, the floor, even the weather.
Just as before if you find any sites that have wheel setups please share on this thread. :)

I found the second link to be most helpful, providing a detailed explanation for each wheel setup; I will definitely use some of these setups in the future. The first link was satisfactory, but misses the layouts of which were focused in the second link. The third link did not work for me and returned a '404' error.

I got the same thing.  Will look at it later and try to update it for you.

The third link has been down for a few months.  It is the website not a forum link issue.
