View Full Version : Chassis Installation
08-02-2005, 12:06 PM
I have always worn Tour boots, (except for anything on that dreadful G-Series line) and I just bought a pair of Bluemaxes to replace my extremely worn out 962's. Can anyone recommend a quality shop to take the Hum'er chassis off and install my new Red Star Hi-Lo's? I had a bad experience at a local shop with a pair of Grafs I switched a couple of years ago and I just want a quality professional job done. I also called Tour and left a message with their Sales Rep, he has always called me back. So...I will post anything he tells me as well. The Hum'er chassis just does not work for me.

What happened to the PF8s?

LOL, I sold them to a friend. They were just not right for me. They really pitched me back onto my heels and the wheel set up was not great for me either, I could not stop very well. The larger rear wheel was the only thing digging in when I tried to make quick or fast stops. I broke several wheels trying to break them in, but no success. I felt very unstable on them. So...I went back to old faithful...Tour. The Bluemax skate is considerably more stiff than the Redmax and I bought a pair of the Red Star chassis, their top of the line model. I cannot wait to have them put on and start breaking in the boot.

No problem. I would be happy to ship them to a qualified shop. I just want to avoid a crappy job. I am going to wait on what Brad with Tour has to say though. He may be able to recommend someone who can do it properly. I just do not understand how all the other skate manufacturers could allow Mission to snatch the Hi-Lo patent. Mission skates suck, I mean no quality...they fall apart. Their stupid lacing system is gone for 2006 though. I think they have had a belly full of repairing or replacing skates with broken lacing. I tried on a pair at a local shop and broke one just trying to lace the skate up and I did it exactly the way Mission instructs you to lace those skates.
Anyway, I may for a short time, give that stupid Hum'er chassis a try, but I doubt it will be to my liking. The Redmax pair I bought originally...did not turn or pivot well at all. I need every advantage I can get chasing down all these super fast kids. The Hi-Lo has always been my favorite and probably always will be.

Yeah it was pretty stupid of Mission to do that, I use to have the Sensor Chasis on an Easton Boot, I loved those skates, I just recently bought a pair of Blue MAxx I feel like im on my heels teh whole time but i do feel faster.
