I just took my inaugural run on my new inline skates on the Stowe rec path. I think it's good to get a better feeling for what thte first time skier feels. I managed not to lose any skin, but it was close. I had a few Wile E. Coyote running on air moments. They seem to respond to rotary, and you can slow down with a very minor wedge. Any sort of a hill would be a major problem for me right now. A small bridge over the river was quite an obstacle, probably like the "headwall" on our bunny slope. I seem to have quite an A-frame with these things on, but I guess alignment doesn't matter all that much on them. I still think I will try some old footbeds in them though.
