Powerslide Inline Skate Brake Pad Replacement

Friday, 17-Aug-2012 - Veghel - Tomorrow was the Electroworld Skating Tour, and my brake pad was already worn down to the bolt head.  It was just a week after I had installed new wheels and a new brake system.  The rubber on the Powerslide brake was just too soft, and the design left half of the rubber unsed.  My Rollerblade brake pads were much more durable, but they didn't fit on the Powerslide brake.  After looking at it for a while, I came up with a solution. I sawed a notch into the Rollerblade brake pad, and I added a washer, using the same bolt and nut that came with the Powerslide brake.  Now, I was ready to roll again.  pics (8)
