Sweet new duckbills.

Gonna be one expensive winter, I think 8) Alpina 1675 and Fischer BCX875... Looks like we lost the Rossi BC X11 (the unix geek in me always wanted a pair, just for the name) and the Fischer BCX675- that didn't even make it a year.

Western NY Ski/Bike Shops

A family member over in Buffalo recently got into weight loss and fitness. I'd like to help her out on her birthday with a gift certificate to a local ski and/or bike shop.

Any good recommendations on a shop in the Buffalo, NY area?

See, there's your problem.

By the time I figure out if a pair of skis is the right size, flex, grind, brand, not too beat up, and not some weird color, the owner has usually returned. :D
