Re: Road rage against rollerskiers

They would harass skiers after church? Not very 'christian' that.

Re: Road rage against rollerskiers

Now Jessica Diggins has had a bad moment with an aggressive driver in her home town Afton, Minnesota.

Winter season 18/19

First snow flurry yesterday, but likely at least a month before there's hope of going out here in Oslo, Norway. Thinking to get rid of my skate skis this year as last season was almost all classic because of skin skis and better track selection. You? Any new equipment or plans for when the snow comes?

Re: Decathlon launches rollerski line

Yeah that's a very good price point, especially with bindings and fenders. Maybe artificially low to get a foot in the market, but good for those who get the deal. The skate ski also has the U profile forks like Swenor, IDT and others which I believe helps keep good tracking, although they might hav...

Re: List of rollerski producers

There was a list on the Wikipedia page before I even joined, then I added what I could. For sure I added a couple from yours I didn't have on my list, but then maybe you did also from mine when we compared lists earlier on here, but I guess you must have forgotten about this? Or are we at the stage ...

Re: List of rollerski producers

It's not your research. I made the list before I saw yours.

But I'll remove your link from the external links section now.

Astonishing the hoops and hassle one has to go through just for a list of rollerski producers, but this is the world I guess.

Re: List of rollerski producers

Immediately removed with reason: Wordpress not OK source. Also considered trivial information. (?) I will now try a separate Wiki page listing the producers of rollerskis , like exists with snowskis in the English version of Wikipedia. EDIT: Put up Magnus' list under a separate 'external links' sect...

Re: List of rollerski producers

Yes it's bizarre. The first reason given was that it was advertising, even though there are plenty other lists of manufacturers on Wikipedia like you say, even for snow skis. Then it was said to be a random and un-referenced link, but when I sorted and linked them, they were also immediately removed...

Jack the Ripper finally identified?

This is really waaay off topic, but since seeing a documentary about the notorious Jack the Ripper when I was young, have been following developments and see suspects come and go as launched by writers and ripperologists, but now I really do believe they have found who it really was. In a way strang...

Re: Plough braking on rollerskis

Still not convinced it's possible to do on skate skis.. I wouldn't even dare to try.

List of rollerski producers

Magnus is keeping a list here, and I'm updating one on the Norwegian rollerski Wikipedia entry here.

Should probably do one on the English Wikipedia page too.

FF Rollerskis

https://www.ffskis.com/
New producer of rollerskis with some innovative ideas like the 'floating fork (fork 'vulcanized' to the frame (I guess glued on with some sort of rubber-like compound)) for damping, and the 'V-track' classic wheels for better stability. From Norway.

Re: Online movie : Kampen om Tungtvannet

Like you say a truly unique documentary in that it's the real people and not actors (except the leader Joachim Ronneberg who didn't want to take part). How come you know about this old classic? This story is of course known to all here, but for me, the part that has stuck in the mind since I was you...

Norway outlaws fluoride products from junior competition (<16 yr olds)

For reasons of health and environment but also to eliminate the class difference between the haves and have-nots since these products are typically very pricey. It's done even though it's virtually impossible to check if fluoride is used. A good step IMO. XC is already too costly as it is, and effec...
