Re: Tua ski ID

there is no better reference for vintage tele skis than Pinnah's library which is still available on waybackmachine...sure enough the Transalp is on there:

Re: Ski Length Dilemma

>>Just curious if you have compared the MR48 to the MT51 and what you think? I have not...I have very wide feet and I feel like a wider waist gives me more stability underfoot. It looks like the main difference of the MT51 is you get a little more width and flotation at the expense of slightly more ...

Re: Asnes Combat NATO / Nansen 2-Part Pole Review

I love the adjustable wrist strap system, that's an area that needed innovation because none of them work well

Is there any way to buy these poles in the USA other than direct-ordering from Europe??

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

>>If one wants a Nordic BC touring ski that is going to spend a lot of time in a groomed track- E-89 Mountain Race Madshus still making a "Voss"? Isn't the Moutain Tour 51 the same dimensions as E89? You can't go wrong with MT51 IMO...wider for good performance in loose snow, but fit in the track w/...

Re: Ski Length Dilemma

I've got similar build, only slightly heavier than you. FWIW, I've always liked longer skis for all pursuits. For anything resembling XC skiing I need 210's or it feels like the skis are unbearably slow. I have MT51's in 205 and 210 and I like the 210's better. However I am happy with 200's in skis ...

Re: Old Asnes Nansens

I've got a few big bars of Toko glide wax I picked up on sale, it's great stuff. Good for ironing into fishscale skis in the spring, it lasts much longer and works better than rub-on waxes like F4. I was thinking that stat on the MR48's could be correct, I think Sport Albert has them drop-shipped fr...

Re: Looking for Wax Selection Advice

no nonstick in my kitchen...US-made stainless steel all the way baby...unfortunately the restaurant industry is still using it. So you've already got more experience with wax than most of us. Remember also, these regular Swix and Rex waxes are not your father's wax - they have been upgrading over th...

Re: Old Asnes Nansens

>>>A grand total of three Mountain Race skis were shipped to the U.S. last year (a 180, 190 and 200 cm) It’s a tough sell in a category that doesn’t generally generate much enthusiasm in the first place. pretty funny - did he check with Sport Albert?
