Re: lacing up the Alaskas

I love simplicity, and the different eyelets on the Alaska are a bit bewildering. That said, I'm not sure what others issues are here. I simply tie mine up and go skiing. I don't give it any thought.

Re: lacing up the Alaskas

But I am not sure I understand the purpose of this configuration; blocking eyelet, fabric eyelet and then a series of blocking eyelets. I see that the fabric eyelet has the potentiel to make it more tight in the heel area (the pattern is larger). But the first set of eyelets is hard to block, since ...

Re: lacing up the Alaskas

Re: 3 Pin or NNN BC Magnum?

Re: Karhu xcd gt full metal edge xc skis 62 54 59

I don't recognize the graphics either, probably early 90s. The guys at Karhu were really prompt to ditch graphics and even names... Have you heard of the Karhu Serens? That's a XCD GT with new graphics and name... That' not the only one bearing the same characteristics (can't remember the names; th...
