NNN-BC versus Pins: Just the facts

I am not going to argue about which one is the best, I promised I wouldn't do that anymore (remember my 2018 resolutions?) We all know that pins were really great in the 1970's. But dudes, that was more than 50 years ago! Just a few actual facts from the current main boot manufacturers: ALFA: They c...

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I am really somewhere between 42 and 43... All my Dr Martens and Rangers boots were always 10.5 or 11. My Birkenstocks were always 43 narrow. My Vibram FiveFingers were always 43. My plastic ski boots were always 27.5-28. My 42 Alaskas are very tight, even with a thin sock. My 43 Alaskas are a bit l...

Re: Rottefella's latest evolution of adjustable NNN mounting- the "MOVE SYSTEM"

I never thought it would come to this one day: IMG_9167.JPG I guess it really makes me a real cross-country skier now...? Seriously, I move all the time... And if it wasn't for the few added grams (190), I would have already moved to the move system... I almost made the switch in October for my main...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Bob, really? Wow... that is pretty cool! I have to say that I would probably have dropped alpine skiing if I saw that ceremony back in 1994... That telemark segment of the Norwegian in action in the opening ceremony is probably the most beautiful tele scene ever captured on video... It matters not, ...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Yep, there hasn't been much "progress" in the XCD world in the last decades. The major breakthrough is without a doubt weight reduction. The Objective really was a major breakthrough, and that was only 3 years ago. Hence the reason I was SO excited about it when it came out... The other mo...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

IIRC Neptune carries the FT62 but not much bigger from Asnes, definitely never seen their poles there! I moved about 30 minutes from my previous almost-accross-the-street spot so I don't stop in as often. The new owners really went all out though, the place has a coffee bar, climbing wall and three...
