A sad day indeed.

It's ABOUT TIME. Thought I'd have to wait for the patents to expire.

Merrie- not sure if you quite get it. This company has parked its ass on the patents for years. I'm not usually in favor of companies being gobbled up by corporate interests, but Evergreen looks like it actually wants to make money doing things here.

Hope you're right slice... that would be nice. Guess we'll have to wait and see. Smile

Not sure you understand, Chris. The patent was about the only thing of value in the sale. In other words, whoever's buying the company's remains intends to make money from it, and the only way to make money from a patent is to *use* it.

They may or may not be called Heelys anymore, but in the end, who cares?

That could be good new for a new Mega wheel style! Pickings have been pretty slim!

My megas get air bubbles, my BDs wear down or start to creak where the wheels connect to the coupler.

My 4+ year old fats? Still rollin, always my backup pair.

Kick switch, footie, high speed, 180, 360, doesn't matter on fats. No problem.

Fatz will always be better: Easier to walk in. Never have to remove the wheel.
Not on stairs, not on ice, never.
