From Kelvis97: "The K2 Radical Pro has two 110 millimeter wheels in the rear of the skate and two 100 millimeter wheels in front. Has anyone had any experience with these skates?"
From chunchmeow: "Do you guys ever skate to relieve aggression after an argument? I've found that its all I want to do after a heated argument or disagreement with someone."
From hikkergurl: "When I first learned to skate, there were rules at roller skating rinks. If we didn't follow them we were pulled off the skate floor. What I observe at my local rink is kids skating in all directions. The rink does have skate guards but they do nothing to enforce any of the rules.

From Drew24 : "I have a unique problem - my feet cramp up so fast I have to stop every 5 or 10 minutes to take of my skates and actually stretch my feet.

Does anybody know what these artistic roller skating champions from the past are doing now? Are any of them still involved in skating?

From chunchmeow: "It might just be a regional thing, but rinks are closing in my area because they just can't afford the taxes and fees to keep open. The survivors seem to be in poor neighborhoods where security is an issue so they end up getting a bad rap. Also, because of the rise in condos and the slow disappearance of the middle-class blue collar worker, rinks are being sold for storage to the highest conglomerate bidder. The few remaining are in areas I would not frequent..."
