XC skiers handling travel: big barrier?

I think there are several big milestones for an athlete to surpass.

I took the plunge this fall and bought a pair of CX tires for my old
sport touring bike. I stripped down the bike, installed tires and, wah-

More reports on Start Grip Tape?

Well, I only have one pair of daily skis, but I went and put on the

Any classic boots have heels that are too tight?

Does anyone out there have trouble with classic boots that are too
snug in the heel?

I have a slight hunch that LOOSE heels are the bane of modern classic

do you wear reg socks or thin socks or 2 pair of socks or?

Modify/stiffen your own skis?

You guys are funny. I think I'll keep it simple. I'll add a thin layer
