No I didn't forget. I didn't know. But a big "thanks" to the literary citation police ;)
Poor you: being harassed by the citation police. Funny how many Americans are standing their ground, determined to defend property... When it's about intellectual property, that sounds quite different...

Re: Rossi BC skis- why all the negativity?

This isn't me, but someone enjoying their BC-90s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk1TLISK3tk This is what we called a short-cut...This isn't by any mean a proof that those skis are good. Check more of his youtube vids; he skis bare foot, with rubber boots, with universel binding, with stiff carvin...

Re: Rossi BC skis- why all the negativity?

I get a chuckle when I read ‘opinions’...particularly opinions that are lacking in hands on use. I have the BC-120 ski, it’s mounted with a Switchback binding, and it’s a pretty damn sweet combination. I’ve used it for backcountry and some groomer time, it was capable and responsive in both environ...

Re: Rossi BC skis- why all the negativity?

I wish I was honest; not negative... I wrote a post somewhere in october saying that the newer versions of Rossi nordic skis *seemed* actually better than the older version. I also said that the one that made more sens was the BC 65 (or 59) for excursion with pack... I checked the collection at the ...

Re: Rossi BC skis- why all the negtivity?

Man, the BC 120 is just the Seek 7 with different graphics; it's not been designed as a nordic ski... Just a way for Rossi to optimize a ski that was a bit too flimsy to be in their touring catalog. You should look at them side by side—Voile Obj and Rossi BC 120. Not sure you would still call that a...

Re: Will NNNBC handle this?

BTW- I think that even the Madshus Eon has more resistance underfoot than the current Rossi BC80... That's probably what you think, but I am not sure it is what it is... Have you skied them? The <shitty> Rossi? I did. And I wouldn't recommend them. And before I bought mine, I would have liked that ...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

First tracks in the driveway and my backyard touring setup IMG_0569.jpg IMG_0573.jpg Man pretty homestead, where is it? What's the status, you just using pins up front and going for totally neutral downhill? Same sort of curiosity here... It is as if there's something missing in that binding (mount...
