Re: Necessity of wax-iron

All in all it was way easier than I expected and seemed to work very well. (Perhaps a bit feral and anachronistic but I'm sure there's absolutely NO ONE on this forum that identifies with THOSE adjectives....) BRILLIANT!!!!!!! I always put a cauldron full of 3/4" rocks on the woodstove to put in a ...

Yep, there is a cure... It's called a garage sale...

We don’t own a car, so I start all my tours by running up to the Butikksenter and building loops out from there.
My very first criteria to define what a "real" skier is... 8-)
Kudos to you!

The standard springs (top) and the Red ones (bottom). It's hard to see on the picture, but the Red ones are slightly thicker... That slight difference in thickness makes a *HUGE* difference in stiffness!

Re: Uh-oh... pinholes ripped on my Alaskas

I bought the very last batch of the original Voile Smiley plates some 10 years ago... 8-) It's incredible how much more power they can give to any thin molded sole... I had the same problem with my Spikes and alaskas... I met Louis in person too, he tried to fix it with shims and different plates......

A new NTN Binding from The M!

We had a lot of fun at the 2020 XCD World Council in January. A lot of talk and discussions about the semi-secret upcoming Rottefella BC binding, and a lot of ideas about a brand new potential system for leather boots, which I might talk to you about later... Lot of great folks, such a lovely, frien...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

You are right. Maybe we should stop populating this forum with sentences and paragraphs. We should only use colorful drawings and poetry. Wouldn't it be nice? A utopian forum for mystic skiers..! Yep, there are some good shows on this program! The 99% thing was dropped at a perfect time for this pa...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

25 years ago, "XCD" was a very hip keyword that could sell pretty much any product. It wouldn't be wise to use it today. But anything labeled "Alpine Touring" can be sold to anyone (with or without ski knowledge) at any price... Rod, the NOSIs and their 18m radius are awesome. But you know, I have b...
