Re: What is camber?

Simple, it's the arched curve near the middle of the ski, and sometimes there are two camber areas straddling the center of the ski. If the arch is high, it's called double. If it's flat, it's called zero. Everything in between is single. Doesn't need to be complicated. Oh, and if it's bowed like a ...

Re: Black Diamond 01 binding

Here also I may need a memory check-- I recall the O2 being the first BD released in the series with the O1 and O3 coming later(?). The 02 and 03 definitely came out before the 01 because that the touring mode was still in development. I can't recall if the 02 came before or at the same time as the...

Re: Black Diamond 01 binding

Agree, I'd go with 22Designs' Axl binding. You can adjust activity level and dial it in to a similar feel (and a more solid binding).

Re: Tech for xcd simple heel hold down

Innovative for sure. But he says the point is "to lock the heel down during those long flat skates, or the slightly more treacherous downhill section of the skin track." For telemark skiing, why on earth would anyone disable the most fun part of telemark skiing, the telemark turn? If it's ...

Re: Quiver Killers or 2nd Ski Kit?

The main problem with QK's (or Binding Freedom inserts, my personal preference) paired with Bishops is the amount of time to move both bindings between skis. If it were me and if I were planning to swap back and forth regularly, I'd buy the switch kit for $70. QKs alone will run $25 (assuming you in...

Re: 22 Designs Vice/AXLE limitations.

Meidjo can definitely be set to be as close to neutral as Voile Switchbacks (or nearly there). And can't the Rotte ones be set fairly low tension too? Outlaw on setting 1 is a bit stiff, but you can remove the inner spring to get it a little softer. Regardless, Axl on 3 is burly. In the end, whateve...

Re: 22 Designs Vice/AXLE limitations.

That sounds more like a too little preload problem in the heel lever than a pivot position problem. Did you try to add more preload?

Re: NTN Binding

NTN opinions vary.

If you're buying it,get Outlaw X next fall.

Scott bought Garmont and has 1 or 2 versions out there for NTN. If you can't try them on in a store or demo them, go with Scott.

Nice job re 19th. That's impressive.

And if you went with a tech toe set up, my guess is you'd save time and notice a more than small difference between the uphill efficiency of a tech toe and a 3-pin binding.
