    [QUOTE=caulfield;5833808]Maybe it’s like biopace and was almost right, but so wrong—need those binding offset to the outside

    Ummm...., Biopace came back and now oval chainrings are super popular again.....

    Better yet, get people to mount their skis offset. Hate them. Then pick them up cheap on the used market.
    This was my original idea, but backwards... 4 prior mounts on a free pair of skis, offsetting a cm to the inside would have put me just about on the line.. Free skis, so why not try it?
    if it is awful, they become a bench..

    Actually you need to have the special offset boots that match the bindings.

    Otherwise you are just gonna go in circles.

    On hardback the outside edge feels weird

    Biopace did not come back. Modern non-round chainrings, e.g., Absolute Black, Rotor Q, are completely different, different orientation and shape.

    Apologies for thread drift.

    they ski great. you don’t notice the offset in deep snow at all. you also have an edge to set when ever you hit hardpack or ice.

    they are a lot of fun in the sloppy afternoon spring bumps.....



    after some 23 years or so, still haven’t ripped a binding off the skii...

    I cant believe you let this slip out on TGR. Anything under 18 DIN mounted to a non indy ski and not yet ripped out is not something to brag about.

    I had biopace...for a while (came on my first mtb: Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo - HAD to replace the rings). The showstopper with these (at least for me) was insane chainsuck. If the chain got in the wrong place (and no, this was not due to wrong front derailleur travel setting), the chain would not just suck in between bottom bracket and small chainring, but would wedge in there like fuck, as the wide part of the chainring worked its leverage magic.

    I'm assuming others had this nightmare, and this is why Biopace went away...and assuming oval is back again mostly due to: 1x setups, clutched derailleurs (and chain tensioners maybe - not that I run one of those) - no more chainsuck issues. I still go with round though, having been traumatized in the past.

    Ok, to un-thread-drift: I had a buddy in the '90's, with K2 Big Kahunas, mounted way offset (more than in the pic above). A shocking 88mm in the waist, lol (ok, they did look super freaking wide at the time). He loved 'em. Bunk-ass idea though - you are cashing in your inside edge, and...if you want to rail bulletproof groomers, just don't choose your 130+ width skis that day.

    Maybe an opportunity for a racer to offset bindings to the outside to reduce boot out? Though wouldn't work with modern two footed race technique.

    that, or you're a snowmobiling pencil dick

    maybe try some laterally offset fucking so you can at least fake contact with one wall?

    Nah, there is lots of girth, just not much depth.

    Kinda like a can of tuna fish.

    Sort of like that but a wider board with the feet more perpendicular, not 90 degrees but more like you'd stand on a surfboard like 45 degree angle with regular alpine boots and bindings.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
