Re: World's most eager skier?

It's simple actually. What role does government play in controlling solar activity or ocean current cycles? I don't know, but it is rather scary to see a clear blue sky transform into a milky haze by air plane exhaustions. This has happened many times here. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Clima...

Re: World's most eager skier?

Its great to see this guy at it again this season! The climate fraudsters are telling us that snow is a thing of the past. The Nordic ski industry has a massive campaign called "Save our Winters." However, the ski season is still open at a few New England resorts - we're talking about ski...

No, it is the actual wheels or tires themselves that are slow.

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

Can any pair of roller skis, either skate or classic, be fitted with very slow bearings which would hopefully cut out some portion of the speed? Myself I'm just looking to get the hard workout in and slow speeds with hard effort is fine. So my question is can most roller skis be retrofitted with sl...

Re: Start skate skiing?

I'm assuming you already have classic boots, so you might as well get a pair of skate boots instead of combi boots. Yes, certainly, but if Steven wants also roller ski boots and wants to save some money I still recommend combi summer boots so he can train both classic and skating with different rol...

Re: Start skate skiing?

A combi whatever will never be as good as the dedicated one. Period. I don't need to justify it further. Again, nobody here has said that a skate ski boot is not better for skating than a combi boot. My recommendation was for saving money without giving up too much on quality, and it is based on pe...

Re: Start skate skiing?

Nobody here has claimed that combi boots are as good for skating as skating boots, and that is not the point in my recommendation, but I and many others think they are good enough for both classic and skating which skating boots are not. And my recommendation is obviously that they are not. I don't...

What combi boots have you tried since you recommend against them? I don't need to try them when it's common sense that combis won't be as good as dedicated ones, (...)

Re: Start skate skiing?

I'm leaning towards skate rollerskis. Any opinions here? Yes, at least 70 cm long and not too vibration conducting unless you have only very smooth asphalt to roller ski on. Now how about rollerski boots? Do I need different boots? Is the insulation the only difference? I recommend so-called summer...

Re: Start skate skiing?

But I would recommend against combi boots. In fact here is one area not to save as it should be as stiff as possible to avoid 'Bambi on ice' splayed feet which can take its toll on the ankles and give wrong technique, and then it must be carbon fiber and that's expensive. What combi boots have you ...
