Hello Moos,

I see you mounted some labeda frames on an easton ice boot. I wanted to resurrect an old post, in that, I am looking to do a similar conversion myself....Easton Stealth S17 white Ice Boots, with White Magnesioum Vanguard Mission Chassis. My question is this, as I have not tried a pair of easton Ice skates before, what is the feel like of the boot, and, how this conversion fair for you in terms of your performance and structural integrity after the conversion?

wcu i have never actually used an easton boot so I do not really know the feel. As for structural integrity a friend on my team had a pair converted and they fell apart. He complained about lace bite constantly and they didnt last more then 6 months and my friend is a small guy so it was not like weight was and issue. hope that helps.

Will post this in the more appropriate thread....

The good,

The evil, (S17 black, Mission MG Chassis, Labeda Addictions, Bones Reds bearings)

And, the backups. (Nike V12's, Rink Rat Hornet, Red Star Chassis, Mission Swiss bearings.)

Dont know if this is the right place to post, but here it goes.
Has anyone change the bauer rx60 hi-lo frame for a labeda all 80mm frame?
if so, did you make new holes for the labeda frame or use the ones from the hi-lo?

You drill new holes, and you dremel away.section of the boot for wheel clearance.

Chances are, if you get lace bite in a skate, they didn't fit you. I myself had S17s he askef about, not the SE16s you mentioned. They were magnificent skates, lasted over a year with CONSTANT playing, daily. The quarter panel broke down and I didn't have the same heel lock anymore. I also used 76mm wheels, if you dremel an Easton boot, you're dumb. They're paper thin.

Also, a friend of mine has had a converted pair of SE16, and still uses them.. it's all about how you do them.
