Re: Nordic ICE Skaters... Les Quebecois? Je vous appelle

^^^^ Yep, I know... But stiff flexors to prevent lift is relevant with 200cm skating skis... Not that much relevant with 30cm blades... Well, depending on boot/binding combination of course... Soft NNN boots would make good use of a stiff flexor... I personally like the sound of the blade dragging o...

Re: Nordic ICE Skaters... Les Quebecois? Je vous appelle

What are wood skates? Skates made of wood... ;) I paid mine like 40$ or something: http://www.telemarktalk.com/download/file.php?id=1688 It can be done with high end plastic skates too... It's just that they are usually a lot more expensive... (The blade and skate construction is much better than c...

Re: Nordic ICE Skaters... Les Quebecois? Je vous appelle

We need some real Quebecois to answer my silly questions! Hey, I'm very, very good at silly stuff...!! :lol: The T20's would be too floppy... It's nice to have some lateral support... We're not talking about fluffy powder here... But AiiiiCE! Pressure is almost always on the whole skate so don't bo...

Re: Leather boots and liners

I have weird feet... Both my Alaska 75 and BC are super comfy, but heel lift is a bit problematic... So two years ago, I bought a pair of low top thermo moldable liners in my size, euro 43. And since then, I have been shopping (without any luck) for Alaskas size 47 to put the liners inside and have ...

Re: SWAP?

Oh- didn't mean to be so unclear- I wasn't' suggesting that the MGV Glitt was "poor"- at least compared to other double-cambered scaled skis. I simply meant that I prefer the waxable Glitt to the waxless. Oh, that makes more sense... ;) Of course wax will always be better... But the MGV w...

Sorry about the confusion... There is no plate on the Freedom...
I just typed the wrong suffix after "Free"... My neurons don't always follow my thoughts... 8-)

Re: SWAP?

It's amazing to see how some things work for others... How we can have totally different opinions about the same things...! :lol: I find the MGV pattern the one with the best grip... For me the Glits are my best climbing waxless skis... I'd love to see the MGV pattern on wider skis... They would be ...

Re: 22designs Lynx TTS/NTN

To Jonny... Actually in the new Telemark Skier edition that mentions the new 22 Designs Lynxs it also reviews a 22 Designs mount plate that supposedly works with a large number of bindings, NTN, 75 mil etc. Yep, Telebuddies have been around for a while... The thing is that you have to remount the w...

Re: 22designs Lynx TTS/NTN

I wish my bindings on Chargers could move back when snow is deep... not a good position for hard snow though. BBergey, what you need is a pair of Freedoms... or TWO pairs of Chargers... ;) Yep, 12 holes in each ski for the Meidjo... No place for mistakes or placement experimentation... But it's pro...

Re: Do I need a rebar?

As I said, there is absolutely no loose on the bar or the assembly... So its got to be the wear or a slight bend on the bar itself... And as Waitin' mentioned, it doesn't seem to be just a bar, but a complex metal part that goes around the whole front block for more durability... Gee Bri, I can't be...
