I had a chance to try the Falcon plates this weekend. I just got a set of Magnesium Avengers so playing with these was to answer my question of how the 16 degrees are different from the 45s. My wife really likes the falcons compared to her 45s. She feels more stable and is still in the process of finding the sweet spot with the truck adjustment, but overall is very happy with the wider wheelbase and tighter angle. I did not like the 16s and found myself fighting to move the plate as I am so used to how responsive my 45s are. I like things loose with just enough bounce in the trucks to push off, so the 16s were just too tight for me. The Falcons are super light and maybe with softer bushings and really tuned out trucks I might begin to like it, but it was weird after being on 45 for so long. I did not like the longer wheelbase either so I would probably get shorter plates than recommended. I really wanted to love the Falcon plates but I'm still really happy I got the Avengers.

The adjustable pivot pin allows you to maintain correct truck geometry. You do need to check them regularly. If you need more action without adjusting the pivot pin, which you should do if you loosen the kingpin nut much, then just go to softer cushions. If that pin is to long the skates will be super sensitive, maybe uncontrollable and there will be odd stress on the kingpin. If the pin is loose in the cup, then your stroke may be sluggish and you will have pulling issues with single foot glides, you will like have issue going straight at speed too. There will also be some undue stresses on the kingpin. There are several resources on the Internet that show how to adjust it properly and how to know if you have.

Last night someone broke in to cars belonging to our teammates, one of our refs, and some of our fans. They even stole the birthday cards we all signed for our December team birthdays, along with their presents. :( Please donate what you can to our broke and broken fund and help us make it all better.
The Rainier Roller Girls are some of the hardest working women on the planet, but sometimes shit happens and we all need a little help. This fund will help replace broken/worn out equipment, give sch...

I'm curious about how leagues decide rosters. It's a very political decision. Who do you put in the hot seat?

Ask what they're looking for. Do all your skills aggressively. Don't be a hazard. Be excited to try everything. Be a team player. Communicate. Make sure you have all min skills down.. especially plow stops, tomahawk stops both sides, and transitions both directions, both sides.

Lovely piece by Kris Carr on finding your purpose. Hint: your purpose has nothing to do with what you do. Very Buddhist :)

Thanks for the find +Sarah Buday!
