Do Speed Skate Bearing Spacers Serve a Useful Purpose or Can We Roll the Roads Without Them

I've been wondering about speed skate bearing spacers today. Like these:

I was outside looking through the bucket of wheels and zip bags of bolts, washers, spacers and other various hardware I've collected just in case I might need it. My goal was to set up three sets of wheels with bearings and spacers so I could do relatively quick swaps to see how they felt in comparison as best I could.

Inline Skate Frame Position: Friction and Burning Feet!

My skate frames have been in the wrong position all year!!! What an idiot. I finally felt like I had the time yesterday to tweak one of them and go for a spin. I set the right skate frame further inwards - where they had been all last year when I had no boot problems whatsoever - set off skating and got such great leverage off that right leg that I almost pushed myself over in the other direction.

Thoughts on Buying First Inline Speed Skate Boots and Frames

When I was about to be fitted for my first set of speedskates, I wondered if I would be able to skate in low-cut boots too, but I tried someone's (Dan Burger's, in fact; thanks, Dan) and it turned out to be fine. I got Verducci V-Tek boots that were "semi-custom," meaning the ankle area was custom and the front of the boots stock, or so they said. For awhile I used some Mogema R-1s but ultimately decided they were not as good as mia Verducci (for me) and I went back to the V-Teks. The Mogemas ultimately broke down at the mounting slot, which seemed a poor design to me.

Liberty Ion Avenger Inline Speed Skate Frames Review

I have not had much time to log sufficient miles on my new Liberty Ion frames to really give an in depth review. But with the warmer NC weather the past couple of days, I have been able to log about 20 miles on them.
