16 miles and my skate is totally broken now

Good News
I skated 16.33 miles in 1 hour and 22 minutes. It was a tiring skate with a little too much wind. But I am actually really happy with my time. Here is the route:

Bad News
The ankle cuff collar I reported last week now has complety released from the skate - I could feel my ankle go really lose at about 12 miles, I guess that's when it must have happened. I am going to try and fix it myself. I need to find someone with a heavy duty rivet machine.

pat, there's a shoe/ leather repair shop by northwestern books in woodbury (valleycreek plaza) that may have what you need. otherwise, if you're talking real heavy duty rivets, any boat repair/ marina would have a machine that did that.

Thanks Zach. I forgot about that store in Woodbury. Some one also gave me the tip about the marine shop yesterday. Thanks again.
