    Pauleleven's friend

    I am a Chinese friend of Pauleleven's.I want to buy zipfit liner.Can you help me?

     

    I used upz RC12 5.5/6/6.5,EUR 39.5.

     

    Empty shoe two finger

     

  2. Is this the what are you listening to today thread?
  3. After Sean and Fin approached Apex to change the name of their insert pattern, and after having their proposal rejected, they still had the nerve to cut and paste their UPM designation on the Apex drawing. Absolutely despicable. What a regretful piece of history to mar our otherwise amazing community.
  4. Funny thing, years ago when I sold snowboard gear, the online shop I opened on eBay was called "The Upper Limit". Just assuming people would attribute that to altitude and not continuity haha.
  5. I'd do this: (I'd be the guy with the camera, not the skateboard)
  6. If they fit RC10 I'd love to try them, but I would want to pay you more than just the shipping cost. They seem to look like they'll fit.
  7. Dang, nice one! I knew it was familiar!
  8. @SunSurfer to avoid confusion, that last part was a joke mate
  9. Me neither. I have merely reiterated facts, which have been stated on this forum I think there is one (or is this two?) thing we can all agree on and that is that Apex products are of the highest quality and the designs are well researched and thought out. And for a 10% discount use my coupon in the Apex checkout. DAVEO10.
  10. Collusion between Donek and Bomber to, as you say, not weaken their position or essentially not strengthen the opposition's (Apex) position- I think this is undermining Apex. The word undermine is open to interpretation, but I think ya get me. I wonder if it was Donek who had been in Apex's position, if the same logic and would have applied from Bomber in an attempt to undermine (or whatever) Donek. Or vice-versa. I can only speculate on the answer. Maybe that's just how business is done in your end of the world, but this sort of thing is generally frowned upon here. And if that's just the norm over your way, then sure thang. But ... plagiarism? Surely engineers, regardless of geographical position, hold themselves to a higher standard than that. Given the nature of Henry & Apex, do you really think this is even a remote possibility? I don't. If you mean about the naming scheme, then to be honest the naming scheme for 4x4 inserts is before my time. Were these initially called something else by a manufacturer and then adopted industry wide by means of collusion as 4x4 in an attempt to not use the manufacturer's initial designation as to not weaken the other players in the market's position? But if you're asking how I feel about using them, then I think they work quite well. Would be nice if there was a standard hole depth (surely that has a name?) and bolt length based on the thickness of binding baseplates as sometimes I feel these can differ between between manufacturers and can lead to some issues.
  11. If company B had put years of research to develop it and had already named it, and I were company A, then yes, definitely. Without a doubt. It is a shame that it was done intentionally to undermine Apex. It really sucks that a community this small doesn't offer each other support. In the end, it seems like all "UPM" plates were inferior to the Apex design anyway. From what I understand, they all implemented design aspects which were already invalidated by the research Apex had done.
  12. I am glad you mentioned this. I would think someone with integrity would have published papers with ASIP in the description, not UPM. Now that ASIP has pretty much been deprecated, it hardly matters, but it would have given Apex much more exposure, when they were the benchmark plate, if the name of the insert pattern wasn't randomly changed somewhere along the way. It's a shame stuff like this happens in such a small industry/'community'.
  13. Never ridden a Hangl but I love plates and prefer to ride a plate vs no plate except for all mountain style riding.
  14. Only 1 person... Nothing like the US.
