R6.E1. New front wheels

Posted by PicasaAt last my two new front wheels. These are standard in-line skate wheels, 72mm at 78A softness. These wheels are slightly larger than the old 62mm ones and softer, but due to there shape and design are absolutley brilliant. They turn very, very fast and are completely silent. Being larger they also move over rough surfaces very easily, man hole covers are now no problem (video to follow). The caster mounts are still a bit rattly but plenty of grease should sort that out. I will keep a look out for better caster holders with higher grade bearing that do not rattle as much. On the whole though they are great.
