Nice thoughts but if we don't pay for our mistakes, the wisdom is lost. I've got another '08 Legacy-R with Rome Targas. I'm not hurting. It just sucks because I really had the Proto all sorted out....

Cable lock for sure. There's a free board check 10 yards from where it was. Doh! I asked them if they saw anything. I guess I just figured of all the nice setups in the racks, who would want my 2...

Big Sky is one of the best I've been to. No nightlife to speak of but LONG runs and any terrain you could think of. It's so big the only place you might find a crowd is around the lifts(and that...

I love their wax. Tried the fc and spring. Both were great, didn't really notice a difference. I'll get some sauce just b/c it's cheaper and I wax every other day.

This might have been mentioned(didn't read all the posts) but I'm 42 and have dealt on and off with a little lower back pain. I learned that a lot of it is misdiagnosed as weak back muscles. Your...

Keep an eye out on Whiskey Militia. I've gotten my past two pairs of EG2s for about $65. Only have the orange/chrome lenses. Works well for me in any light except a HEAVY snowing day. I'm not sure...

There is an ongoing debate for camber vs rocker on stability so I wouldn't say there is none. I learned on standard many years ago but all I buy is reverse camber or rockered, now. I relate stiffness...

I don't think you can really have both. Playful is at the expense of stability and vice versa. You can have a mix of both but the most stable board isn't as playful, etc. I've been wrong before(I...

The file is for shaping. Getting your base and side bevel, quickly. Then coarse to fine with the diamonds(just like sanding and finish sanding). You can use the diamonds for rust removal, sharpening,...

5 diamonds and a file. 6 total. The file eats steel! It was my first attempt. Bought it on a recommendation along with some Hertel Wax and everything came out great. Very easy to figure out.

It'll work. He said the horse was temp(probably because it slid out while testing). Replace the saw horse with two 2x's from the joint to the base of the platform. That will tighten everything up....

I don't know how they would know. They don't open it and by the time it goes through x-ray/tsa, it's already been checked. If you go on any airline's site, that is basically their policy. In...

I did the same thing. Bought a wide and lived with it for 4 years. Just got a regular width. Any reason why you went shorter? You sound tall and light enough to whip any 150-something around. Too...

Straps are a little different, too. Curious about canting myself. Why don't you splurge the extra $15-20 for the bosses and let us know what you think?
