When I saw these skates I thought about the song Stacey Adams by Snoop Dogg. LOL Check the link.

This is what some people skate on out west in Callifornia. Dress shoes and shaved down wheels. Looking real smooth as they float sideways across the skate surface. Toooo cool! If you have any more Cali skate pics send em my way!

These wheels are super hard to find. They are made from Vanathane which is a material used for All American skate wheels. These wheels are extra hard and they slide like crazy! I found these on eBay for 15 Bucks, some people dont know what they have!
Can’t afford a new pair of roller skates? Then the person above shows how not to make your own, unless you want to break a few bones that is. More pictures after the jump.
I know allot of people that skate that don’t really know much about their skates. I make it my business to know my skates inside and out but here are some tips about ball bearings for those who dont!
Your new Bones Bearings are the most accurately manufactured part of your skate, with clearances and tolerances considerably smaller than 1/1000th of an inch. That means that a single hair is thicker than the clearance between the balls and the races inside the bearing, and a hair will clog it up and slow you down. Because you skate outside through dust, sand, water, mud, etc; your bearings will eventually get dirty and/or wet. When they are dirty, you will notice they don’t spin freely when you flick the wheel and you may also notice they are getting noisy. At this point you have two options: clean your bearings or replace them.
