Let's say you live in a country that have lots of ice in the winters with frozen lakes and seawater. That's the case fore me, I live in Sweden, to be more precise in Stockholm.

A nice activity is to ice skate when there's an opportunity. But the equipment is rather expensive according to me. I figured out that if you buy a couple of Inlines an mount them on a traditional ice skate profile you will save a lot of money.

Fore this project you will need:
. Ice skates profile
. A pair of Inlines
. Some screws and bolts
. Angle iron (see pictures)
. Small piceses of wood

The mentioned  items, you can bye on ebay or at any similar sites. Maybe you have it at home..

The total cost fore me for the components was less than 200 swedish crowns (30 US. dolars) including a pair of inline skates.

Step 1: Disassembly

The first thing that you have to do is to disassemble the binding from the aluminum ice skate profile. You will also disconnect the wheels from the Inlines.
<p>could you use those for regular ice skates</p>
Try not to kick someone LOL they look like riding ln knoves dude haha. I dont know all the different kids of blades and maybe the knife lookin part is on purpose but pretty neat
haha! thanks!
That looks like a nice pair of skates! I suppose this is a good use for them, but make sure to use those wheels for something or other, they look pretty good too.
Thanks! <br>Do not be worried, the wheels will be used to another project!
Maybe... is yours cheaper then 350SEK? =)
This is what the project has cost me: <br>. 145 SEK Ice-skate-profile (from tradera.se) <br>. 40 SEK Inlines (second-hand market) <br>. 12 SEK Angle-iron and screws (hardware store) <br>TOTAL COST 197 SEK <br> <br>So, yes, a lot cheaper than 350 SEK. And if you compare to &quot;roll'nskate&quot;, the inlines is not included in that price.
Nice! I've been thinking about doing something similar to my inline skates, but instead of turning them into ice skates, I'd be adding pneumatic wheels so that I can use them on the &quot;exellent&quot; roads we have here in the north ;) <br>How stable are they to skate on? How well does the angle iron hold up? <br>The version I had in mind included 2 parallell pieces of 5mm flat stock steel bent in front and in the back to accommodate the larger wheels but not raise the feet unneccesarily off the ground.. if that makes sense... But, if your system works well, I might not need to use such heavy material.. <br> <br>Good job! <br>Ha det bra! <br>/D
Hi David! <br>Thanks for your comment. Your pneumatic-skate-project sounds very interesting and challenging but I like it a lot. Are you going to have a couple of tubes on your back loaded with compressed air, like a diver or firefighter? <br> <br>To your question, if you weigh more than 70 kg, I think an extra pair of angle-iron would be good to have mounted in the middle of the profile. For me and my weight (65kg) the skates are surprisingly stable. <br> <br>I'm not sure if I understand how you are going to build your profile, if you showed me some kind a sketch maybe I can give you better advice. <br> <br>Once again thanks David <br>Ha det bra du med! <br>/Jens
No, by pneumatic tires, I mean air filled, as opposed to the solid wheels most inlines are equipped with. :)<br> User TimAnderson made a set using a pair of slalom boots to use for &quot;kite skating&quot; or some other, but I can't seem to find them now.<br> <a href="http://www.allterraskates.com/images/kizer%20allterraskates%20mbllc%20nordic%20suspension.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://www.allterraskates.com</a>&nbsp;This is a version made by Powerslide, wich seems very nice, but a bit pricy too.<br> So, my idea: make a bracket that kan hold larger air filled wheels, and be able to change back to original configuration.<br> <br> Make more sense? :)<br> /D
Okay now I understand better, but I still think the idea of ​​pneumatic motors would be a cooler and crazier projects. Hoping that someone here will build them. <br> <br>It looks like you've already got lot of tips below, for your idea <br> <br>One thing you should consider is that it is much more demanding for the leg muscles with inflated tires

Have you seen Land Rollers? The standing on the axle part lets you have really big wheels without anything getting stuck between what holds the wheel and the wheel. (Roller blades do not handle walnut shell fragments well)
Maybe u can get som ideas from this =) <br> <br>Detta &auml;r en kille som jobbar p&aring; SSAB i Borl&auml;nge som gjort denna upps&auml;ttning. <br>Han ville g&ouml;ra n&aring;got med v&aring;rt H&ouml;gh&aring;llfasta material <br> <br>http://www.rollnskate.com/default.asp?selectedId=2
Wow that was another variant, but I think my solution will be cheaper
Haha, han hann f&ouml;rst! <br>Lovely idea... off to make my own in V:&aring;s!
Wow! I've never seen such beautiful ice! I'd heard about long ice skating trails in Sweden, but just assumed it would be dark. Thanks for posting this! The skates would now be one less expense if I make the trip.
The nature here in Sweden is really fantastic in both summer and winter. Hope you get the opportunity to try both seasons.
That's a weapon. o.o looks cool+++++
