FS: Asolo Ski Boots Snowpines

I have a pair of size 44 Asolo snowpines in excellent condition. No smilies, pin holes are in good shape. I hate to see them go to waste... I have shitty foot syndrome and they bother me, but otherwise are an excellent kick and glide boot. Asking $75 + shipping. I can send pictures or whatever you w...

Re: Alpina Alaska 75 boots

I love these boots, but I'm not sure they are going to last... I don't have the issue with the duckbill that I know of. I always ski mine on the second detent position. The thickness doesn't look much different than yours, by eye, so maybe there is a difference between the voile bindings? My binding...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

Also CIMA, Just another little comment from the peanut gallery... and I know I'm not alone on this. I saw your quiver, and I must say from an engineering standpoint, that those skis were never meant to be skied as downhill skis. To the average skier who buys those in the US, they are used for skiing...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

I looked up the free body diagram, and I think that would be a nice tool to weigh the both mechanisms fairly. I hope that analysis won't shun many followers of this topic. :) To my regret, the discussions here seem to be turning to something like theological arguments. :) Even if I presented here a...

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

Do you guys know what a free body diagram is?

Draw one for each mechanism. Then we'll get down to some engineering.

FWIW they are 215's. Zoom in on the other picture and you can read it.

Re: The NNN/BC Truth Thread

I've been reading along with this thread for a little while now and I think it's time to throw in my $0.02... You can argue the engineering merits of the two, or perhaps multiple systems (I don't consider a simple 3 pin the same as a plate and wire, or SNS the same as NNN) on paper, but it will neve...
