No clue on the wheel sizes. I went to my LHS and let the guys mess around with it until it gave a good rocker. I will try to find the invoice, and let you know.
Yeah, first time back on the ice, especially from a normal roller setup with the wheels all alligned is always a pain. But if you use a rockered set, and do this transition a few times it will get easier. I play roller maybe once a month in the summer, with 2 ice sessions weekly, and have no problem changing, but I do not use the roller stop anymore to keep my head straight.
