any wheel with a softer durometer is going to Thane a lot easier. Big wheela can be really hard to break in sometimes. you might just have to wear them down a bunch before they thane. They will also be more controllable. @RichardSchafer I've never rode reforms, but certain colors of wheels dont like to Thane so that might be the problem. just for fun, i would say throw on your Liam Morgan's and do a couple slides just to see if you can get them thane-ing. That will be a fun experiment, and might boost your confidence. 82a is too icy for me. are you doing glove slides or stand-ups @RichardSchafer?
