Re: Who's filed a tail notch into their skis?

ha sawzall! no problem getting the groove made. I guess what I meant was in the skimo tipclip department...a few years ago when I last looked at it you had to give Dynafit something like $60 just for the set of skimo tipclips which are just a rubber piece shaped like a short rope with a knot in the ...

Re: Satchel’s Neophyte Nordic Backcountry Adventure Thread

Yeah this season has been sketchy and spotty here in Michigan as well. Do you have a nearby Alpine ski area that makes snow? When the fields and woods are barren it is an alternative.

Re: Who's filed a tail notch into their skis?

Re: Racing setup advice....

This is such a cool idea. I just realized that our youngest has one remaining race season before he goes off to college and my wife and I could mount Tele on some GS race race boards and hit the beer league with an all Tele team. That would be sweet!

But ya gotta have tip clips. I'd be interested in filing a skimo style tip slot in a related project.

Re: Homemade BC

Yes try it! And make sure to demo those things before you turn them over to the Mrs, to make sure they aren't an instrument of destruction haha so, dremel out some of the base to make a cavity for the skins to insert? Are you familiar with the newer generation of skin tec skis used for classic racin...
