Re: Fischer RC5 vs RC7 Skate Boots & CRS vs SCS Skate Skis

FWIW I have the RC7 and find it very good and a joy to put on and use every time. When I bought them a few years ago, I did try all competing models, but the padding and still tight fit just felt that much better. I had to choose 46 where I normally would use 45, but maybe that's what you're experie...

Re: broke my arm ... rats!

Since blindness is somewhat worse (at least to me) than broken arm/herniated disk, I am happy I can still see well, even while $45,000 poorer. If I were you, as soon as I'd get better and ready to go outside, I'd blow at least 1K euros on a new set of skis/rollerskis/bicycle/yoga classes etc. to ce...

Re: 1000 cheating Russians

In biathlon, despite much coming of the accusations except 2 suspended, Russia has now lost its right to host the World Championship in 2021, and on the very day of the World Championship start in Austria now, another one is suspended without the case even having reached the Anti-Doping Hearing Pane...

Re: broke my arm ... rats!

Absolutely. The weird thing is that I've never trained more strength (gym 2-3 times a week) than I've done last years and still the disc slipped, but true that I've been neglecting stretching completely. Maybe that's really the key so will be sure to do that from now on. But apparently the disc unde...

Re: broke my arm ... rats!

Ouch, sorry to hear that. I too will also miss the snow season this year (now it's just started..) as I just had a herniated disc so must take it easy for 60 days following surgery.. :-(

Re: NNN bindings: fragile! break easy!

Not sure as I managed to chip a brand new Rottefella Xcelerator during mounting. Didn't use too much force either. Maybe pushing a bit too much down on the end while pushing up and that was it. Not big chip but left me thinking these things ought to have better plastic, but then it's all about keepi...

Re: Tell ya what's fun... Backyard biathlon!

Sounds like fun to me, but also a tad wary with firearms and alcholic games.. :bom:

But the biathlon idea is very good. I wish I had the opportunity to arrange something like that. Must surely give a good insight into what's required for the sport.

Re: What would you do?

Magnus/Nuero : I considered those options, but given my lack of talent/fitness/general ability, I need skis that glide most of the time. I got a pair of racing skin skis and the glide is really very good, much better than expected. And I didn't even treat them yet. You can even win races on skin sk...

Re: Those in-between months..

Least amount of snow for 60 years in Norway, and a measuring station in the woods outside Oslo here show only 5 winters in the last 141 years have had no snow there. Not too unhappy as I've done my back in and wouldn't be able to ski much anyway, but miss the snow of course. Ah well, what can you do...

Re: Marwe REPAIR needed

How about saucing it in with silicon or glue to prevent moisture penetration and then just screwing it in place?

Re: how to make XC racing visually interesting?

@jt10000 Some places and events are covered better than others, but some can be really poor. For example the biathlon event in Pokljuka in Slovenia can be almost a parody with long waiting shots due to lack of cameras, no shots of leaders coming in etc, although it improved slightly this year. And a...

Re: Camber on skate skis

Can't find much on the internet, but serendipity as I just heard biathlete Johannes Boe just say he chose too much camber for the 20k race in Anterselva and that cost him a lot of time, so it does matter. (he then went on to win the mass start with less cambered skis)
