Thank you so much for the advice. I am sure a few more questions will pop up..but for starters, regarding "The smaller the wheel, the slower the skate but the easier to control. "..I was thinking of going with a bigger wheel (90) perhaps too speedy but providing a smoother ride.. or perhaps I should look at something like the Wing 50 W..
90mm wheels will be a bit hard to learn on. You can always buy the skates if they fit your foot well, and replace the wheels with an inexpensive set of smaller wheels (76mm - 80mm), then as your skill level increases put the originals on.
Also, will be interesting with a back breaking system. Usually, I just did a tight turn to stop and rarely used my front break..rather a T-stop..hopefully this will be the same with inline skates..not sure if I even want a rear brake..curious of the pros and cons..thoughts on this??
Spin stops and T stops work the same on inline skates as you are used to. That said however, the heel brake is the best way to stop, and using the heel brake is how you control yourself on hills. It's not hard to learn but it does take some practice to use it well.
