Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

here are some pics! the stretchers with plugs in the right holes. I need to push out the toe protector so I add a plug up front. this is how my boots spend the summers! I use "Bear Guard" beeswax/oil product, the cans actually make good blocks for behind the stretcher. Any grease or oil-ba...

Re: New Alpina Alaska NNN BC HEATED BOOTS!

wow, that's for the truly hardcore, if it's that cold I'm probably staying inside! But it could make sense in some situations, like if you're a guide or have other reasons to be sitting around waiting for someone.

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Which Alico's are they? I don't think you'll get much stretch on the Alico Double, but my Ski Marches have stretched quite a bit. I like to apply some grease to the boot in advance, let it soak in for a while. Use the stretcher with the black plugs attached to the sides, they will add way more volum...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Al - same here! My bunions and width are so bad that plastic boots are also very difficult. No, the Lundhags are not available in the US, they have to be ordered from Germany. as I've posted before my solution for nordic ski touring was welted leathers on 75mm soles and a massive stretching with the...

Re: Alpina 1550 vs Alpina Alaska: Are the sizes consitant between the two?

$170 is a great deal on Alaska, I would pounce on it. You don't find the Euro-made leather boots going on sale often. Very easy to shim boots or wear thick socks to make up a bit of extra room. In fact I think someone else in this forum is thinking of buying those same boots, better get moving :?

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Who's making nnn boots in EEEE? I never found any that were even close to fitting. I need to get an East coast quiver going and I see a lot of good skis out there so whats the widest boot? the widest NNNBC boots I ever tried were the Lundhags, but they still weren't wide enough for EEEE. http://www...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

The XCD commune sounds good to me! My hopes for a backcountry commune in the abandoned Burke base lodge were dashed when they were bought out. Maybe we can move into LJ's basement and start the commune there with all the skis? :lol: :lol: Great idea though, we could also start with a couple of festi...

Re: Extreme cold weather ski Waxing, which wax?

we've had a cool summer after two miserably hot ones....I am hopeful for this winter! I can report than the Gulf of Maine is now cooler than it normally is this time of year.

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

excellent talk on the difference between nordic, tele, etc. LC! It's difficult when you don't live in a mountain town and you can't just see what your friends are doing & borrow stuff. I'll never forget the time I showed up at the Mt. Washington cog railway with 210cm fishscale double-camber XC ...

Re: Extreme cold weather ski Waxing, which wax?

I ended up ordering some Toko Universal Cold which is Hot wax for down to -22 , some Swix Polar kick wax for just in case, this is what I use - I got some of the Toko Univeral glide wax on sale, couple packs of below freezing, couple packs of above freezing. That's actually high-end wax for me, I u...
