hi everyone, I'm a longboard skater and for the 24hr ultraskate at aintree this summer, I'd like to try running large inline skate wheels.

I'm looking for 4 used outdoor wheels 100+mm
prefered are F1 matter G13, mpc road war turbo or bont black ops or any very good rolling speed skate wheel.

thanks a lot
julien

Hey Buddy, longboard skater eh ?

You know Markus ? He works at Newtons Shred.

I might have a few 100s spare, but they are nowhere near the quality of G13s etc.

No offence dude, but you're asking for G13s? LOL. No one's going to give up wheels of that quality! If you made a suitable offer though....

Best order yourself a set - Blueroom do a LSST discount. We also get discounts if we order from Custom Sport but I'm not sure how you go about getting that.

Have you tried using normal inline skate wheels on a longboard to check whether they increase the longboard's roll?  Inline wheels are, broadly, designed to have the weight directly above them.

Also, I've heard the aintree course is going to be rough - do you know whether inline wheels will be more or less comfortable on this surface?

I remember that some bright spark had the idea of quadlines (inline wheels on quads) a few years ago, it really was the worst of both world

FYI - discounts are to members of the club.

Not me, but I raced a 188miles race in Atlanta last year and was doing it with a guy with inline wheels. He was very happy about them.

Of course, I never said for Free (even if I'd take the offer). Otherwise I'm going to order the in the US, they're around 25$/wheel so about 65 GBP so I'm open to offers!

Unfortunately, I live in London so I won't be able to test the surface. I'll do a few laps before and if I don't like it, I'll use my regular 85mm skate wheels.

Hi Guys.

Thanks for all your comments. I went for matter wheels in 110mm F1. Let's see if it works out...
