Gregory, awesome awesome on the roller skis. I got a pair last year, because of never ending calf strains while running, its a great non-impact aerobic activity. If you go to rollerskishop.com
the guy there is great, i got mine from him, he has a brake that although it looks goofy, it really does a good job. which wheel do you have up front, the 2 or the 3. the rollerski dude, insisted on putting the slow up front, had an explanation, but i cannot understand why it is, so i switched, i have 2 up front, 3 in back. i've wiped out 4 times, 3 from rocks, 1 a small piece of a branch. there are brand new bike paths by my house, what are you rolling on? if you were to come to cle, make sure you bring yours, i'll let you borrow a pair of my poles, but they'd probably be over your head , haha ! I'd be interested in the reaction of people when they see you, in cle its the usual look of shock and confusion as to what the hell this guy is doing!
