  1. As of this moment, when I use informal language, I'm intentionally referring to all ISO 9523 boots as "Grip Walk" I am deliberately not using "WTR" until the WTR/WTR+ nomenclature and cross compatibility/adjustment/AFD height mess is a little further behind us. Sweet Almighty, that's a sticky one, for example WTR bindings that are not compatible with Grip Walk are still being sold (and are quite likely to be run into by someone shopping for deals). EDIT: Good idea investing in boots first, sorry to be the ointment fly of compatibility caution here.
  2. Don't forget that the default for older bindings will be ISO 5355 soles. We don't know what boots he's getting and, depending on the choices he makes in the boot shop, he could wind up with Gripwalk. Yes, I know conceptually he ought to be able to change sole blocks back to 5355, but it's somewhat of a PITA and he may not be sold on doing that if Gripwalk is bigged up during boot sale/fitting. Ski choice? Older Kendos should fit; newer RTMs (not the old ones with the zero camber middle), Dynastar PowerTracks or Chams, Fischer Ranger....
  3. They're not short - they're just in (one of the available) sexy girlfriend size(s).

    2018 new car thread

    If you buy that truck, you will be one of *the* top candidates for hybrid tires I know of. A) They work better than P-metric all seasons in snow B) No seasonal changeover C) Use them on gravel roads all year - including C&O towpath approach roads, including the Timberline condo approach road, including River Rd near White's Ferry, including Laurel Mountain/Highlands access roads, including Vermont gravel roads, and very much including Chesapeake Bay/Eastern shore kayak launch access.

    Stupid World Record

    You can clearly see her pedaling back up to the car and then backing off in the previous record video

    Stupid World Record

    Actually, she is pedaling hard, every time she pulls away from the vehicle she has to go all out so as to not drop out of the pocket. It's only if she succeeds in surfing the back wave that she can relax as she pulls forward to the vehicle. IMO, just as difficult as surfing a monster wave with a jetski tow-in, except with gears and more salt. On a related note, one of my long-term pet project ideas has been to build a real-life Breaking Away bike. You know that scene where he pulls around the truck at 60mph? That. Basically I want an hour record track bike with a giant chainwheel and street-capable brakes. Sure each ride will be less than 3-4 miles but who cares.

    You're not doing desk right. You're probably missing the whisky bottle and the toy cannon.
  10. Nice, that looks like it's going to be a very interesting ski.
  11. Any progress pics of the 107s? I really kinda liked that shape. I have to say I was incredibly tired by the time we pulled the MR95s out of the cassette, possibly too tired to fully appreciate how well everything came out. When I say 'everything', I mean all the ten or more little details you have to arrange just so before moving forward one step. And there are a LOT of steps.

    Oooh, that's a can of worms, that is. Especially given civil forfeiture.

    The car thread

    Am I the only one who looks at all this infotainment dev work and gets a flashback to airline seats? 50lbs of electronic gear per airline seat was supposed to be the customer driven idea - and it meant deferring safety measures like self-extinguishing tanks - and now it is 50lbs of completely surpassed, obsolete money waste per seat per airplane.

    The car thread

    I disagree with this interpretation. Combinations of two or three corporate factors can produce the scattering effect way before one considers individual drivers. First factor: Defunct brands. Two of the GM brands have no new vehicles (Saturn and Pontiac) so we're sampling only well-maintained units that have survived to be counted. Second factor: Luxury groupings. GM brands group luxury vehicles - and we see that GM's luxury brands GMC and Cadillac have remarkably similar long term operational costs. The short term ownership difference between the two is Third factor: Car / truck product mix. We absolutely should not be comparing average operational costs of Chevrolets with averages of GMC when pretty much all of GM's CAFE leaders are grouped under Chevrolet. And that's just the top 3 skewing factors I can think of.

    Lettuce talk about grass

    Hey now, 'weed' is totally belittling the Herculean efforts of all those hoity-toity English lawn-and-manor painters for the bored rich when they trained us to value the image of green open flatness next to houses, the unceasing drive of the Polish/German/Baltic state denizens traipsing their forests looking for weedless green clumps to clone, the education credentials of the actual cloners over at Scott/ Monsanto, and the screaming backaches of the fertilizer/weed killer processors and loaders. Hmm. Come to think of it, I'm OK with that. That said, all of you having post-winter issues with lawns - have any of you played with seeding winter rye in the fall?
