read a few online reviews about quad-skates and got good reviews. spoke to Lee at quad skates who is a die hard skater and knows his stuff about bauer and general skating and what to look for when building a pair of skates ive been using my new skates for 6 weeks and true to word the skates are better than expected with a bearing upgrade and good quality wheels. the skates took a while to break in and feel fine now. Gotta hand it to quad skates - they are by far the best skate shop I've ever been to and spent my money with them for the past 3 years and best of all, offer up decent, honest advice. no bs just the best advice from a decent knowledgeable guys
I've been a long time skater and bought my skates from different shops over the years and more recently eBay and Amazon. I returned to quad skates (online) to pick up a pair of Bauer xlp's with Sims snakes and after going to collect them from their shop in Gloucester, helped me remember what skating is all about, the community, the information, advice and support from knowledgeable skaters. Oh, the shop banter too. I've missed this from my life for many years and was like taking a timeship back to my teenage years. Good old-fashioned advice and no online BS from people with their opinions, which are usually wrong. Okay, so I've given these guys grief over the years and now realise why they stock their product range. For recreational skating they are the experts. Let's face it, 90% of skaters, skate for leisure so they have the market for skating in the UK. This has to be the best skate shop in the U .and yes it's cliche but you need to see it to believe it. Kid in a sweet shop, a real skate store (not these fashion places with wheels and bearings) .... I'm talking real skate gear and what's more.... They know their stuff. Go visit them if you're looking for a road trip
