Geez! This explains everything! I wear 10.5 Nikes but weigh only 150.
I've always wondered why those wheels kept falling off every now and then.
I figured it was those fancy F*ch's wheels being temperamental...but it was
just my own personal lack of mass...I feel so inadequate!
BTW: If anyone wants to pay me $1200 for my wheels, let me know!
