While it would be fun, it's just not really in keeping with the Nomad spirit. 

Hard to use bikes on a space ship.

Because the roller skates would cause their feet to slip off the bikes, obviously.

First on that is probably tall enough not to bother shifting.

Goddamn, imagining hearing that thing as you drive gives me the willies. Imagine the whine it would make going 80 mph in first (because no one is going to be silly/dumb enough to ride a rocket like that, with rollerblades, and not speed)

Clearly the answer is jet powered roller skates!

Well the girls are meant to be Hyper and Dynamic - no bikes required.

Jet powered roller skates would be awesome. But I would find more fun a jetpack while wearing roller skates and a Rocketeer helmet.

Rocketeer was a "hero" (from early 1980  comic strips and later a movie. and it is supposed to happen during 1940's)who used a jetpack to fly and his helmet to steer. Hilarious nowadays, creative some time ago. And the helmet was quite "fun" old grrls models remind me to an "updated" version of the helmet due to the "sunglasses" and "attached wings". And I always found funny using the head to control de jetpack direction.

I would put an image but I'm not sure if it is allowed by the forum rules. If you Google it, it will come up for sure.

Slices of small plastic rod, with a thin strip of plasticard down each side? 

It'll be fiddly, that's for sure, but it should look alright simply glued to the bottom of the boots, after you've removed the tactical debris.

Roller -skates-: Awesome. Very rollerderby, and a good number of the actual Riot Grrl types I know have done derby.

Roller _blades-: They are the opposite of punk. And very common here in France.

Oldschool skates are rad, no fruitboots!

rollerblades are very much "Rollerball" so, in the perfect 80's sci-fi style.
