Alt.skate then became rec.skate, and the creation of the FAQ was inspired by the two most frequently asked questions of that day: stopping and how to maintain wheels and bearings. The Stopping and Wheel and Bearings files, along with the list of trails I was compiling made up the original FAQ. This quickly grew to include a general Q&A file, a huge list of trails and places to skate, rollerhockey info, skate reviews and the FAQ was on a roll.
Today the FAQ is one of the most popular and comprehensive inline skating resources both on and off the Web. It has everything from skating tutorials, lists of shops and manufacturers, information from dozens of skating clubs, the Inline Skate Shopping Guide, and much more.
In any case, I hope this FAQ is useful in some way to any and all skaters out there. As the sport of inline skating continues to grow and mature, parts of this FAQ will likely fall out of date. So if there's something wrong or missing in the FAQ, please send in your comments and corrections.
Skate smart and skate safe.
