Thought I would start a new post since my old one was killed off...

Anyway, just to prove how Heelys will go the way of the dinosaur and never be accepted by the general public (I for one don't like to risk my health by trying to travel on a single tiny wheel)…I will be making and posting video at youtube to prove to the naysayers that these are, in fact, the “bomb” and the true next step in personal transportation (and plain fun for that matter).

Video content should include: crossing parking lots of questionable smoothness and terrain in a single confident leap, going blazingly fast down skate park slopes, and generally using them where Heelys can’t, again unless you like risking your life and limb.

Then why everybody using heelys? Actually. it has got a much better look then Togo Skates. Heelys are like real shoes. No one knows what happens

But whatever I dont know Togos I like Heelys

I'm kicking this one to Picture & Video because you've made a claim that a vid is forthcoming. I don't believe in simply outright banning people for making an argument, but if you're going to make a claim like that on this forum, either back it up or kiss off.

Okay. I have never seen Togo skates. Ever. I'd like to see your video at the skatepark, and you're probably going to get beat up while you're there. Lets also see some stalls. Oh, and while you're at it, attatch those to some Soaps and grind with those on. That will be the day. xD

Sure .. when you do put out a video .. could you please post someone jumping into a 12 ft half pipe ? Or maybe even some grinding on a 6ft mini-ramp?

If Togo skates really IS that much more stable and easier to ride, then take it vert.

So .. er .. LMK when that video comes out, ok?

12 feet is 3.6 meter we got one halfpipe like that in Hungary, but It will be a long time I try it with heelys. beause it bends back.

Same thing with Riverside .. its slighty "over-vert". I have one at Vertigo so I can practice dropping into over-verts .. its a weird feeling.

Oh look there goes my 4 year old cousin on his heelys going across the parking lot with fun bumps that he thinks are just little drops.

So where's the great video?? I hope its just some crappy dropping in on a mini with no grinding and no way to get back up on the other side.

S-T-I-L-L W-A-A-I-T-I-N-G


I don't even know why we're having this discussion. This product pushing is getting tiresome. This concept was tried and rejected as inferior. It not like we didn't try it. We've tried it and we know it sucks.

The MACKs had two wheels at the Heel. And the FrankenHeelys was the exact same concept. Its just too clunky and cumbersome. You can't walk in them and you can't skate in them.

Let's face it, you saw Heelys taking off and you wanted a piece of the action. You didn't even have the creativity to come up with something new. So you copied the concept in the only way that wouldn't violate the patent. Just face it .. NO ONE ELSE IS FALLING FOR IT. The whole thing is like an insult to our intelligence.

I've seen some of the "Pro-Togo-ers" videos .. I was like .. what the heck is THIS?? Kids going down a slide??? on their butts??? IS THAT the extent of the togo potential?

I usually don't much care about what is "better or worse". I live well with inliners, skateboards, Heelers. But if you're going to assert that product as better, then put-up or shut-up.

We'll let the masses decide.
MDHZ

PS - If you love togo skates so much .. why don't you start a togotalk.com and have a great forum .. all by yourself.

Don't tell us you got killed or hospitalized trying to make this video, jcardin!

He won't be by himself, he'll make a hundred sockpuppet accounts and try valiantly to imitate a community. Laughing

I just want to see him go across a flat parking lot. That's all. I just want to see the speed he so claims- none of the things we know very well that are impossible on those things. He's made a single real claim: Togos are faster. Let's see the speed, buddy boy, and don't even think about artificially speeding the film up because I'll know immediately. For extra fun, tell us where that exact parking lot is.

This dosen't show anything that can't be done on Heelys, but I just wanted to get a video out there for the heck of it. Took this about an hour ago and uploaded to youtube. I won't get any major video outside until this weekend when I should be able to do some of things I previously stated I would do.

What you may find amusing is the fact I wear a pair of Heelys with the togo skates attached to them, only because they are obviously shoes built for heeling, duh.

This seems to be the way for Heelies clad heelers to beat the bigger cracks...
