Re: can I used NNN boots/bindings with real skis on a Nordictrack?

A friend of mine mounted three pins on the boards that came with the machine. I don't see any benefit in it other than breaking in your boots. It may also make it more unsafe if you lose your balance. I want to add that last year I blew out my back on a Nordic Track. Make sure the pad is on your hip...

It was pretty good. Snow was a little wet on the verge of clumpy but no problem. Good for no wax skis.

It should be good tomorrow.

Re: Argh Can't decide which 75 mm binding for Vectors

What I found with the X2s was that with my T2s I had to loosen the cuff to get the range of motion I needed for K&G where I didn't have to do it with SBs. It wasn't as noticeable with my T4s but it must have an effect. Also like conny said it's probably overkill for that ski but if you like the feel...

Re: Eastern pennsylvania xcd spots?

It's back on. No tree skiing, but the grassy logging roads should ski fine with about 5" of coverage.

Re: Ski base cleaner formula

I don't know if this was mentioned. After scraping and applying base cleaner and scraping again I use an abrasive scouring pad like Scotch Brite to clean thing up further. In a pinch I've used gas and paint thinner.

Re: Excursion 88 length

I'm not as xc oriented as you and jyw so I'm happy with my T4s and Vector BCs. They give me the best chance to have a fun day when conditions are bad. Unfortunately they don't help with the flat light. June is a great month to ski, but for me it has to follow a winter with exceptionally deep snow be...

If you want to try back country skiing just step off the groomer at HP and you have bc snow. I've done laps all day and never left the perimeter of the groomed area. Safe and fun. The above photo was one of those days. Great low angle snow when high up was windblown.

Re: New leathers--crease control

I feel your pain, I had the same problem with my first pair of tele boots. I put a piece of foam on top of my foot, it helped, but I think your idea of extra foot beds is probably better. I never did get the problem solved before destroying them from too many newbe tele crashes. I always thought I h...

Re: Binding Inserts

Baaahb, mounting quiver killers voids the warranty on ultra vectors, if that's the plan.
