Looking for replacement axles

Hi everyone, I've been looking for replacement axles for my old Ultimate Attitude frame, but seems like I couldn't find this brand from most of skate shops anymore. What happened to Ultimate... Did they go out of business or something? Does anyone know where I can get those axles? They don't have to be Ultimate brand, as long as they fit on my frame. Please advise. Thanks.

My Bont Jet Adventure (Inline Skating Speedskating Boots, Skate Brakes, Stopping, Frame Placement)

I have had my Bont Jet skates for a couple of months now. It’s time to say a few words about them...

First off, a little bit about my skating background and my goals for my new skates. I have been a recreational inline skater for ~15 years and my trusty skates for the last 12 years have been Rollerblade Spiritblades. I decided to get new skates in order to go much longer distances (thus getting more exercise!), hopefully well into 20-30 mile range several times a week.

Another newbie here - need advice on skating on quads, especially outdoors

Hi!  I'm brand new here.  I found this site by doing a search on Yahoo for skating advice.

I'm 35 years old, and getting back into skating after 25 years.  For the most part, I use quads (indoors and outdoors), although I've tried inlines as well.  There's a couple of issues I'm concerned with, and hopefully someone can give me some insight and advice:

Skate '08: How are you Going to Spend your 600 Repetitions?

Andrewinnc brought up an interesting approach to skate (or anything) training, in his article "Winter and Skating Technique". He had read about a theory that it takes 600 repetitions of a movement for the muscles to learn it. Assuming that also means 'for the brain to learn it', I wanted to apply this technique and take it a step further....

Double Push Video

I just watched a video of a skater on a skatemill. What a lot of expensive fun! He can even see himself on the tv and check his technique.

This fella probably wasn't even trying and he makes it look easy. Great side-view and back-view for the purpose of pausing the clip where you need it, for many an ahah-moment.

Noob to Skating: Any Advice for New (Beginner) or Intermediate Inline Skaters?

Hello all, I'm new to skating and am looking for advice on how to become better at it--right now I only skate in rinks because I need walls to stop.  :P  Any advice or suggestions would be helpful, including where I should be posting questions like this.  Thanks!
