    I end up buying a nice pair of skates each summer for some long distance speed skating but I end up wearing out the frames so I bought a super nice very high quality skates. these are actually REAL speed skate. 5 over sized wheels per skate and they have a pump sysytem just like the old rebocks.

    I just took them out for the first time and they were great! I did bout 20 miles ish. I cant wait to go again!

    Just had to share my excitment.

    I remember back in the day drooling over Bauer FX1 and FX3's. The paths and roads suck too much around here to have much fun though, plus I was never very good.

    I've been wanting to get some speed skates but the roads aren't very good where I live. I've got some aggressive skates though and I love riding around in those, haven't done any "aggressive" skating in a while though.

    I used to skate quite a bit until I picked up golf. I need to get back into it.

    I've tried rollerblading, it is fun. I like skateboarding too only because I used to skate alot when I was younger. I actually prefer skateboarding over rollerblading, still though, rollerblading is fun and is a good workout. :yesway:
