  1. I'm interested, but I've never even worn Intecs (so have to buy heels) and not overly familiar with them. So only the toes are adjustable ? Is their canting? The screw in the baseplate is the only screw I assume? Can it be tightened by hand? Where do you ship from? Thanks,
  2. Hi, These will work with Raichles that are 10+ years old, right?

    Just curious, how is Red Bull associated with this?
  4. Hi All, Has anyone ridden WV, VA, or PA resorts (within a few hours of DC ) in the past 48 hours? I've yet to ride this season and my family wants to do a quick weekend trip. We were looking at Wintergreen (VA), but I looking at the forecast and their cams, I just don't think it's going to be worth it this coming weekend - snow is soft and loose (per the cams). I'd consider Snowshoe but not sure it's that much better. Saw a recent article that said that snowfalls throughout much of the MA are significantly lower this year (again). Thanks,
  5. Pius, I also really like SRT. Minuteman is great, it's definitely less crowded than 'Tail, it's more laid back, and they have an actual alpine team. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to ride this season (getting married = $$$), but it would be nice to have some people to ride with - or at least carpool with. Does this interest you at all? Do you know other hardbooters in the immediate DC area? Years ago (around '07, I think), a guy named Mark Brown had created a listserv "Mid Atlantic Carvers (MAC)" - for a few seasons, it was fairly active. I'm not even sure if it exists anymore, but perhaps it's time to start a new one. There were 2 carving sessions - one was at SRT, and it drew pretty well.
  6. If you do try an alpine setup, I think the hill on the left (snow dancer or snowpark?) will be plenty to get you started. You really need to ride defensively at Whitetail, in particular, on a weekend, and esp. on a blue run. I've had at least 1 collision there. I'm a lightweight so I have shorter boards, but the longer boards with larger SCRs - not sure how some of you guys ride those at a place like 'tail. guess you're a lot more skilled than I am! I'll be headed to SRT for the first time in a few years on Sunday (most likely). It's a carver-friendly resort and certainly has fewer people and a more chill vibe, in my opinion, than Whitetail, which can be akin to driving the Beltway in Maryland (every man for himself type of deal)
  7. Anyone planning on riding this weekend? Obviously it's been pretty darn cold and their sites said they've been making snow, so I think conditions will be decent. I'm tentatively planning on going Sunday, not sure where, though. Roundtop would be ideal, but it's the farthest from me. Wouldn't mind meeting / riding with some other carvers this year.
  8. Can anyone personally speak to any of the all mountain boards? Or perhaps you can recommend something else? https://snowboarding.transworld.net/gear-guide/2018-good-wood/#TK6mqQMzyL7z8yOU.97 I'm particularly curious about the Sims, perhaps just b/c of the retro factor, though it did make the list. I ride primarily mid-atlantic / east coast hardpack, but want something that can also be used in the pow or maybe even on some small park features. 75% (or more) of my riding is simply on-piste trails, however. Curious to hear thoughts.
  9. this is awesome.....well done. cool music at the end
  10. OK, then. I agree with Neil. I'm not that experienced an eBay seller. So, I can still expect a positive feedback from the buyer, then, right?
  11. Good to know. I listed the shipping price, but I didn't know how much the actual package would cost (or I simply forgot to include that in there).
  12. OK, here's the issue. I sold a low cost item and shipped it - at least a week ago. The buyer has it. Before I could send the invoice, they paid me, but the payment doesn't include the shipping supplies, which are also very low cost, but business is business. And since the item was such a small price, I don't want to be stuck with the price of shipping materials. I've reached out to the buyer at least 2x, no response. Losing my patience, but want a positive review. I searched ebay's site for this situation, but didn't see it. Should I just suck it up and leave bad review or email one more time, or contact ebay?
  13. Hi All, I think there are some fairly experienced eBay'ers here? Sellers, in particular. I'm having a minor issue with a buyer and wanted to run this by you guys who are more experienced. Let me know if you're out there and I'll post my question / issue (it's pretty simple). '
  14. Hey Guys, Sorry I went MIA - I thought I had my settings to alert me when there are replies. I will reply now!
