What are your thoughts on Atoms new Venom wheels? They’re the right size to go with the Jukes – would you think about pairing them up?

From the Get Rolling facebook page.

(the picture links to the only UK shop I’ve been able to find a pre-order link on!)

All this makes me think is that I wish the poisons I ordered would HURRY UP AND GER HERE. Stupid customs, delaying my wheel aquisitions…

So my friend Elly and I are starting a derby business! It’s called “Get Rolling” and we’re renting out wheels because it sucks that the only ways you can try out wheels at them moment are to borrow them off someone you know, or buy them and not to be able to return them if they aren’t right for you.

Right now we’re finalising the last few details so the website isn’t available yet, but you should check out our facebook page to find out when we go live! 🙂

Brilliant Idea! Good Luck!

Yes, I am reblogging myself because I am EXCITED 😀

Wheel question!

Sunday 8th May 2011 @ 11:30 pm : Tumblr : 0 Comments :

If I pass my minimum skills (or at least pass a decent amount of it) I’ll be rewarding myself with some new wheels, but there are so many options! I thought I’d throw it out to the all-knowing derby girls of the internet…

My current wheels are 94a. I’ve played around with pairing 4 of them with 4 wheels at 96a, and it worked quite well (I weigh 16 stone, and I’ll probably end up as a power blocker, so even my pushers need to be fairly slick but I also don’t need to have jammer-level speed).

Should I go down, and get some pushers that are under 94a, or should I keep my 94a’s as my pushers and get something slicker?
