Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

Gareth, I was out yesterday and came up with a trick that made touring with T4s better. I buckled the lower buckle over the plastic tongue like normal, but I put the upper buckle under the tongue. It allowed for better ROM for K&G and may help with your HWs. Give it a try. Going to try this tod...

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

Martin, I wish I had an overstock of poles, I've been using one Lekki and BD pole for the last few years. I always use the BD one in my right hand because of that pole plant problem you mentioned. 125cm is the length I also prefer for most touring, but i'll go down to 115cm the steep and deep or var...

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

If you are referring to the old excel arctic poles with the big baskets, I used mine today. Tough poles. Handles now are mostly friction tape, and one basket has about had it. Replaced the other basket years ago with one I found at amh. On the lookout for another basket. My favorite poles, though I...

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

Hey Bjorn, my T4s are from last year and I love them. First off they are a half size bigger than my T2s, which I needed for touring. Second I found the lower cuff makes skiing, both up and down, feel more natural. Which makes sense because they feel more like a regular hiking boot to walk in. I'm gl...

Re: Mikaela Shiffrin

I like Bodes commentary. I hate direct TV. They're lying thieves whos bill didn't match what they quoted and they charge your credit card without permission. We canceled after two months and had to get Visa to get us a credit. The customer service rep from Visa said she deals with about 6 of these i...

Re: Touring speed comparison of skinny dbl camber vs. fat fishscaled ski

I don't think I came up with hard conclusions, more a generalization that wide and especially scaled skis aren't necessarily sluggish boat anchors. I was also happy that the T4s could hang with my leather boots as far as touring speed. My kick that day was acceptable but not great, I think I've had ...

[quote="greatgt.Guess the only thing I'm using all the time is the 20 year old ski poles....TM[/quote] Are they the double wrapped fiberglass Excells that came with big yellow baskets? I used mine for ten years too long because I couldn't give up on a pole that never let me down for all those y...

Re: Mikaela Shiffrin

I think the pressure came from being the big favorite, winning the last Olympics and then the next three world titles(i think). I thought she would have to be pretty lucky to win the big race 5 times in a row considering everything has to go just right. I don't think winning the GS the night before ...

Re: Olympic Snowboarding

Where in the heck are all the ski fans? The mens dh is the marquee Olympic event and I think we had more ski fans at the kids Alpine regionals Monday in Michigan. They were probably at women figure skating. Where else can you get to see a double flying camel toe :D ? Or the men's, checking out the ...
