Aluminum Spacers for in-line skates (8-pk) Kryptonics GO FASTER!
Aluminum Spacers for in-line skates (8-pk) Kryptonics GO FASTER!
If you want to get a little better performance with your in-line skates you might want to consider upgrading your spacers to Aluminum Spacers. I am selling an 8 pack of industrial airplane-grade aluminum spacers. 8 is what you need to upgrade your 4-wheel skates. Most older skates come with plastic. They were fine back in the day, but there is something better. If you like to go fast, don't be held back by obsolete hardware. These fit in virtually all brands of skates. The reason aluminum spacers work better is this: When you are in your skates your weight is pushing the skates into the ground and the wheels are pushing back up--this puts pressure on the spacers. An old-fashioned plastic spacer bends under your weight. As it bends it puts pressure on the inside of the bearings. The bearings are trying their best to spin, but they receive all this pressure that it impedes it from spinning as freely. Aluminum spacers are so strong--I don't care how heavy you are--they don't bend at all. If you try to squeeze these with pliers or a vise you can't do it--that's how strong they are. And they weigh virtually nothing!!!! Well, that minimizes or eliminates any drag on the bearings. Nowadays most high-end skates come with aluminim spacers. It is not the most exciting product in the world, but it makes a big difference in your skate's performance. If you have an older pair of skates--this will give you a little turbo boost. If you like to do tricks and stunts--these are pretty much unbreakable-- If you play hockey and want a little more speed-- this is a small thing you can do to improve your game. These measure about 15/16" across or 23mm (They should be identical to the ones you already have--just a different material). The interior diameter of the hole where the axle goes through is 1/4" or 7mm. There are a few exceptions--if your axles are wider than this they will not fit, but there are not a whole lot of skates out there that have axles like that.

My 2008 Felt Z35
My 2008 Felt Z35
Now in its second year, Felt's Z series is aimed squarely at all-day performance and that means it's been designed with a focus on comfort - so if you're thinking of riding sportives next year, read on... Frame The Z35 is a stealthy stunner with a frame made from what the manufacturer calls 'Ultra-High Modulus Modular Carbon Fiber'. In plain English, it's strong and light. The compact chassis has a relaxed geometry with a high front end - a 180mm head-tube on our 56cm model. That's a stonking 40mm longer than you'll find on an equivalent model from Felt's standard-geometry range but still 10mm shorter than Specialized uses on its Roubaix bikes. The front triangle is oversized throughout, the massive down-tube especially so, extending across the entire width of the bottom bracket shell to hold it firmly in place. Out back the wishbone seatstay junction with the seat-tube is well below the height of the top-tube joint so the rear triangle is unusually small and taut. At the other end, the front fork has carbon blades and steerer. Equipment The Felt's spec isn't particularly flashy but it's all sound, reliable stuff based largely around Shimano's mid-range 105 groupset. The shifters work flawlessly with a next-tier-up Ultegra rear mech providing crisp changes across the block. The dual pivot brakes offer well modulated power. FSA's compact Gossamer crankset features 50/34 tooth chainrings matched up with an 11-25 tooth cassette to give a gear spread that's wide enough for most terrain, whatever your level of fitness. Felt's own handlebar is stiff enough with several good handholds, but don't be fooled by the seatpost; it might look carbon but it's actually alloy with a carbon wrap around the outside. More impressive is the stem with its asymmetric internal shim that allows you to adjust the rise from 16° to 8° - Specialized has used a similar system successfully on its Roubaix range for the past year and we've always got on fine with the design. Clever stuff. You can also flip it so you get four positions to choose from; new riders might well graduate into a more low down set-up. Wheels The Z35 rolls along happily on Mavic CXP22 rims laced up to Felt's own aluminium hubs and, although the wheels are only a middling weight, our Olympic-standard wheel wrecker couldn't knock them out of true during extensive testing. The cup and cone bearings are easy enough to regrease yourself while the rims come with a wear indicator groove to tell you when they've had their day, at which point we'd upgrade. The Z35 is very responsive to start with but when we fitted a lighter set of wheels it felt instantly more alive, especially on the hills - as you'd expect. And if you're thinking about using it for sportives, well, you know how those event organisers just love to sling in a few back-breakers. Handling Compared to a standard road bike, the Felt's riding position is incredibly upright thanks to that long head-tube, topped by a further 4.5cm of headset and spacers. Although this makes for a lot more wind resistance on your body, you won't necessarily get to the end of your ride slower. What I mean is, if you're more comfortable in a less aggressive riding position you'll be able to keep putting the power down for longer. Plus, there's the small matter of enjoying it more... The Felt isn't excessively light, but it's surprisingly agile in the hills thanks to the stiff frame, particularly the tight rear triangle that converts your effort efficiently into forward motion. The small (34-tooth) front chainring allows you to sit and winch the bike patiently up long drags while the low-slung top-tube lets you wrestle it to the top when you get out of the saddle. It's perfectly well mannered going down the other side, too; you can scrub speed off without trouble if you overdo it going into a tight bend, and you get enough vertical compliance for a ton of comfort. The Felt Z35 is a bike you can just sit and spin on all day long. Like the excellent Specialized Roubaix range (such as the ?1999 2008 Specialized Roubaix Expert we were recently impressed by), the Z35 delivers exceptional comfort while retaining a sporty feel. The geometries are pretty much identical - almost to the degree; even the Felt's slightly shorter head-tube makes little difference because there's plenty of adjustability on both bikes and you can almost certainly tune the positioning on either to your exact requirements. As you would expect, the rides are similar too - both are very upright with a load of vertical compliance to keep you comfortable during long days in the saddle, though the Z35 doesn't go uphill quite as well as the Specialized - but then again the Roubaix Expert does cost ?700 more. Straight out of the box the Z35 is a really lively machine with no parts crying out to be changed. But when the components do gradually wear out, or when you've got a few quid spare and fancy treating yourself, the high quality frame and forks will eas
Kreidler Flory Transmission
Kreidler Flory Transmission
This is what lives behind the first drive gear and the clutch bell. On the left is the second gear drive gear On the right is the first gear clutch wheel. Attatched to the back side of it is the starter clutch, and on a separate wheel, nestled behind it, is the second gear clutch wheel. The pads on the first gear wheel are completely absent. I found bits of them floating around in the drained fluid. Yikes. These clutch wheels are very firmly set on their axle, and must be pulled apart with a special tool and a lot of force. We built one a disc with holes for three screws to brace into the three holes in the front clutch wheel, and one large blunt screw in the middle to act as a puller. Gripping the outside of the disc and turning the middle screw will pull the front clutch wheel out and off the axle. When pulling, the only thing the screw threads into is the pulling tool. The force from the puller screw moving forward is what pushes the front clutch wheel away from the back clutch wheel, and off of the axle. This inner axle is also threaded, however -- be sure to put a spacer/washer inside the axle, between the puller screw and the axle threading, or the screw will simply thread in and strip the axle, making it impossible to push back on. The second gear wheel is replaced by using a screw that matches the axle's inner threading. Place a large flat washer/spacer between the screw and the wheel, and crank the screw in until the wheels meet together onto the axle. Check the photo notes for a little more info on this. When removing and replacing these wheels, it's important to make sure they properly seat back into the outer case before closing it up. It's very easy to reposition them too close or too far from each other, causing the entire transmission to fail. It will rattle like trash, and the starter clutch will not engage.
