I have the Tour Blue Max's with the Hum'er frame using all 80's. I couldn't stand having those huge 80's under the front of my feet so I switched to all 76's and all is well. If you get the Labeda frame that supports all 80's you may not be able to put it on any old boot.

The Tour boot I have has a recessed area upfront that allows the wheels to actually go into the boot, supposedly keeping the center of gravity low. That didn't fly with me at all, it felt WAY to high - plus I felt like I couldn't turn for crap with those big speed wheels. No matter how low you get - the bigger the wheel the less mobility you'll get. You will be fast as hell though. Just my 2 cents, but I wouldn't run all 80's, just go get awesome bearings if you wanna be faster.

I was also wanting to get a pair of Flite or Graf boots and mount a Labeda frame to it. Be interested to see if anyones done that. I do have a pair of CCM 455 Tacks with a Sure-Grip frame and have been using those for years - fit like a glove.
