    Sorry can't compare the Brooks shoes. Looks like your foot shape will be difficult to find a shoe I feel like most of them are about the same last width. Im guessing you're getting D width, have you...

    Which running shoes?

    One more you might want to consider. Brooks PureCadence I think I was looking at as a direct competitor to the Kinvara. Ended up going Kinvara mainly because of price, I thought they were a coin flip...

    Which running shoes?

    I wouldn't worry too much about stack height of the Kinvara and cushion levels. I alternate running in them, Five Finger Treksports, and Peregrines and I'm not bothered. My old Asics Nimbus were ok...

    how much should a decent set of rims cost?

    The pitting at the bead doesn't make sense to me unless there have been multiple tire dismounts and remounts without cleaning. If the wheel is clean and tire was mounted with a lubricant, I don't...

    how much should a decent set of rims cost?

    Wheels should last much much longer. Not sure how an oxidation issue on the rims would cause a slow air leak. Sounds like a broken valve stem or a leaking tire. Did the shop show you where the...

    Noob questions about midlayers + shells

    Only speaking from a mid layer perspective.
    Nano air is way more breathable. I sweat a lot. I used to keep my phone in the nano air exterior pocket, but on days when it warms up more than I expect...

    Only time I've managed to fog up my Smith I/O is when I forgot to take them out of my buddy's car after a trip and they sat in the car overnight stuffed in my helmet. Next day they were completely...
  9. Chalk judders - wrong tune, wrong ski, or bad technique?

    I get this on skis when I push a turn radius tighter than the sidecut or the tip can't hold its edge and slips/catches/slips. Basically tip chatter. Had this on a Blizzard Peacemaker. Especially with...

    Rice or turkey bag should be fine. You're doing a localized remold. I would just use enough rice/water to fill the toe box area, that way you will keep the good fit sections of the liner cold and...

    For $25 that's definitely worth it for the expertise and controlled environment. I currently don't own a car so everything is a pain. I'm also the type that would roll the dice and do it on my own...

    Losing my shit here re: intuitions

    The liners will remold as many times as you want, but you can't regain liner volume. They might puff out initially from the heat but once the foam compresses I've never been able to expand it again....

    Losing my shit here re: intuitions

    My FT Tom Wallisch boots were similar, really hard to buckle any of the straps. I couldn't tell if it was me not used to their buckles or the density of the liner. I put mine in the oven at 200F for...

    Good forward spring pressure I'd leave them as-is.

    It's a safer bet to be somewhere in the middle in case you get new boots and the bsl is slightly different. STH2 heel track is 28mm long. Since...

    Good you didn't give up on it. Do you have a tight shell fit? Did you have to max out the buckles or were you still somewhere in the middle? Your first liner looks like a lot less volume, wondering...

    I don't think over-compressing the liner to avoid packing out is a good idea. You can always mold again if the liner packs out. I buckle the boots before molding and figure out what setting the...

    I've started to tune my AR7 fully cambered skis this way, but I've never tried anything larger than 1.5 degrees base bevel at the tip and tail area only. Has anyone tried to go larger than that?
