I’ve griped about ebay in the past, but I couldn’t stay away. I’m a hopeless bargain hunter when it comes down to it. I’ve been looking for some longer frames for my skates for awhile now without much luck. I’ve been hoping that a longer frame would make me faster. I finally found an auction on ebay. Two sets of speed frames, wheels, bearings with an opening bid of 99 cents and I was the only bidder. One of the frames has Swiss Bones Bearings these are top of the line bearings that would sell for 55.00 dollars.
2 frames, 20 wheels, 40 bearings, all for 99 cents.
I mounted the black “training frames” first. They have lower quality bearings and very soft wheels. I couldn’t believe the difference in the wheels, bumps that used to rattle me could barely be felt it was like floating. Even though soft wheels are supposed to be slow I was faster on the long frames.
Now how about a new feature. Hat of the Day from my massive hat collection that I think may have to find a new home soon. Today’s hat, a Worlds Finest newsboy cap made of 100% Wool and featuring a unique double buttoned brim.
