Man tries to screw XCD skis to fence for hanging hot tub towels

BREAKING: An Albuquerque man on Facebook Marketplace yesterday claimed to see no future for a pair of Karhu XCD-GT's in 210cm. In a recent post, the man said he "pulled" the NNN-BC bindings from the skis before putting them up for local pick up. "Sadly, I don't think anyone wants them anymore," the ...

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

I read Stve Barnett's book Cross Country downhill and also watched very beginner tele videos on you tube. And after three winters I can turn okay. Maybe your best bet is to buddy up to a very experienced resort tele skier and take a lesson. my friend is ski patrol and tele turns in his sleep on any ...

Re: Fischer Excursion 88 vs Outtabounds - Newb

with all the himming and hawing on the web about how Fischers' recessed kick pattern is bad, (I like it because I like to kick wax anyway) I'm not surprised the newer Excusion 88 has a longer pattern and more to it to add kick. So long story short, I think if you bought the 88's you'd be getting the...

Re: Leather Ski Boots & Light Telemark Boots

I printed out the entire webpage of Dave Mann's pure genius on XCD about five years ago. I made three coppies. A copy is about 50 pages. If anyone would like a copy, unless it's on the web again, let me know. we can arrange something

Re: help with mounting bindings on fischer sbound.

I'm an XCD tourer who turns infrequently. I've mounted my dozen pairs of skis (including Sbound snowbounds, ottabounds, and boundless) pins at balance point. My longest Atomic Mountain BC's which are skinny and 200cm I decided to try pins 1/2" ahead of chord center because I read about it in Steve B...

Re: Seeking Guidance On A New Setup

If you want a smile on your face at the end of the day, I would lean toward the Traverse 78's since you said you're heavily into touring, not turns. The 78 will give you a nice sturdy BC feel but still kick and glide nice. Unless you need more float in Montana snow (I dont live in the West) Lean tow...
