Re: Ski Marches or Mountaineers need adjustment

Interesting how they don't need to be that tight. Also interesting that being real tight might be bad for the boot. The newer Voile Traverses just seem so right, 1 is loose, 2 is real good. It seems like it would really help with keeping the ball of my foot down, not being like nnn. But I haven't tr...

Ski Marches or Mountaineers need adjustment

With the Ski Marches, the red Voile Mountaineers will go down to two clicks on one boot, and three on the other if I try real hard. They're pretty loose at two clicks. What should I alter? Can I file the "notches" on the latch? These are super-epoxied to my favorite skis, so I need to be careful. Fo...

Re: Canada Freedom Convoy

The U.S. Freedom Convoy is different than the Candadian one. There is no vaccine mandate on those truckers right now. I don't think they will risk their jobs or getting felonies. If you think everything going on in your country is great, and you like your new "dictator" than carry on.

Re: Crust vs. crown, klister, skins

So the conversation is between my dad's 40 year old waxes and new stuff, even $30 tubes of wax. Don't get me wrong, I will pay for performance if it matters. However, I've had fine results with this stash, particularly the blue extra and blue for climbing some slopes. They seem to work as good or be...

Re: Crust vs. crown, klister, skins

No glide wax. I just have the impression of crustiness scraping anything off the bottom of skis. Maybe it has to do with the klister being 40 years old? Maybe my grip waxes are old, too? If you swear by it or I get more opinions than I will buy the $25 base+ $25 blue. I enjoyed the blue a lot so I w...

Crust vs. crown, klister, skins

There is a skatable crust in the fields right now. In the woods, its more of a cementous snow that my narrower skis sink about 1/2" into. There isn't a crust to speak of in the woods. I just sink a little further with my boots. So long as its very cold, I thought this could provide some fun explorat...

Re: Fischer BCX Europa 109 Tour

If it's plastic under there then I probably did them too tight... I could probably pull them out in the next 30 mins.

Re: Fischer BCX Europa 109 Tour

I've started doing an increasing amount of moronic shit while still having the same amount of perfectionism. I'm pretty sure the holes were all metal inside (or plastic?) so I cranked down pretty hard on the screw driver. I might have started to strip one or more of them. All of them felt oookay but...

Re: Fischer BCX Europa 109 Tour

I have been blown away by how good these are both at XC and telemark. I have them dry fitted with Voile Mountaineers, so I'm just doing some gentle testing, but I also skiied on them briefly with the Rivas. I'm more interested in them as a gentle cruising ski because of their narrow width, but its a...
