Re: What to think of Alpina crew?

I must say, that's a shockingly lame response from Alpina. Is there no way to talk to a "customer service" person? (My apologies if that's already been addressed in previous Alpina posts)

Re: Sbounds...leathers

GT, Jay's still got coverage on a couple few trails, if you want it. Probably can see it from out your way, maybe?

I can understand the warning, because there are some situations where compatibility is an issue, but I agree with Montana that your choices should be fine for the mount.

Re: 2024 Quiver

"They were popular in the Daks back in the 80's. I remember people skiing them with heavy leather boots. They were good turners." (Regarding lowangleal's epoke 900's) I lived in the Daks from around 1980-2001. I had some 900's, and then a pair of the 1000's, which were even better turners. I worked ...

Re: Telemark Equipment for sale.

I don't think the OP has been back on here since shortly after that post. Notice there are no replies or updates from him. But regarding the Scarpa's, I'm a 9.5 and have always worn 27's, without a tight fit. 27.5/28 would be a 10, I believe.

Haven't heard a word from or about Biff since Telemark East went away. He'd been a fixture for a long long while.

Re: Toe bang, really want to make boots work.

I've got Excursions with the stock (non moldable) liners. What does your foot actually measure (like on a Bannock device) for a street shoe? Meanwhile sounds like the preesure might be form the place where the tongue is sewn to the body of the liner, and there's that extra piece of elastin sewn over...
