Hey Teleman!

Johnny volunteered himself to go on down to VT to show you how to put pictures on a forum!

How many years you been at this? We figure it's about time an old dog learned a new trick :mrgreen:

You know who the Lovely Bear is Teleman?

I think one of his IP addresses was in Quebec, so maybe he is close to you.

Congrats on the babies! Don't agree with you on the NNN... well lite BC and xc... yeah I agree, that's exactly what I use them for ;) Still got the pins on my carvers ;)

All those Norwegians are using them on skinnies and they are ripping it up in the BC. They like their skinny skis though. I don't see them using them on anything over 65mm or so in the waist.

I can see the future - "don't let grandpa catch you in those NNN boots boy!" :lol:

the Norwegians use 3-pins too - I think Varg is still making them there, also Alico and Andrew both ship their leather 75mm boots to dealers up there. I did have a problem once with NNNBC, but it wasn't the bar or binding breaking down, the entire sole of my boot ripped off the upper. You're going to see welted boots breaking down slowly, a glued boot sole will look fine right up until the whole thing breaks off. Same thing with glued 75mm boots too.
