  1. The shop is open by apointment only if you want to go there and buy something. They are doing a lot of business online and will ship to you. Don't be afraid to get a hold of them to buy stuff as they have lots of items and will ship to you.
  2. i could ride it at 30 and 15 like I do with the dupraz.
  3. wow! Thank you for the info. I still wonder if this board would be too wide for me with my size 25 UPZ boots? Good price though for a new metal board.
  4. I went to a shop today to see if they were going to carry this board? They said no as it is too expensive and is a very specific board. They will special order it. I was told it might be available in Steamboat? i was also told that I can demo it at Loveland and keystone at the demos this year? I will call around to other shops in Denver to see if it will be available? I would like to look at it at a shop if it is available? I might not want to demo as I have small feet and it might be too wide? I talked to the Ride rep who happended to be at this shop I went to today. The shop is a dealer for ride snowboards. i think it will be funny to find out that no one in denver will be stocking this board? I will be laughing about it. I did find out that this year will be year 2 for this board and they did have some issues with delaming but have fixed that? I will call tommorow some other shops to see what I can find out?
  5. If no one answers on this forum you could contact Donek snowboards and they would be able to explain the diffrences in the 2 boards. They are making the glass free carve again with newer dimensions.
  6. thank you for the info about this gear! I am having fun riding this board the way it is with 20lbs of tire pressure. I might just buy another carveboard already set up with the urethane wheels so that I don't have to take a chance on this not working that well? I think it would be fun to have the shorter 34" board with the urethane wheels as this would allow riding on more types of terrain than the rubber tire board.
  7. I don't think i will be able to convert my board to the new wheel set up as I would have to mount the trucks in farther than 2" each to clear the sharp bend on the nose and tail of the board? I took 1 truck off and made a pencil line 2" in from the center of the mounting holes and the truck will not mount flat on the board from that spot. Also the board is wider with the truck further in and the wheels might hit the deck? I am glad I did not order parts yet. I must have the old version?
  8. I will be sticking with the carveboard line either what I have or I might just buy the newest carveboard with the 104mm wheels and sell my current carveboard if I like the newer one better? The carveboard seems to work good enough for what I want to do .
  9. Thank you for the info on those parts. I can buy a complete carvestik used for the same money as it would cost to buy parts from carveboard to convert my other board. I wonder if the new 104mm wheels would be better than the 80mm wheels on the carvestik? I don't like the idea of drilling the carveboard because if I ever wanted to sell it might not help?
  10. Has anyone converted a rubber tire carve board to urethane and if you did did you like it better? I contacted the company and they said it can be done if you are willing to mount both trucks 2" closer in. You would have to drill the deck. Reasons why I would like to do this- lighter weight, quicker turning, no more tires to inflate or decide which pressure to use based on type of hill, less rolling resistance with urethane which would allow you to ride on more types of terrain. I would be buying the new 104mm wheels and axles to do this.
  11. Thank you for this post. i started on a snurfer back in 1978. The snurfer has been reissued and is being produced again with permission from Sherman Poppen.
  12. If you are still interested in a Virus board you might call Bola at all board sports as he has a metal 162 sl board at a very low price but it is in real good shape as I saw it today when I was up there paying for a board that I bought. 303-415-1600 Cheers Matt
  13. Does anyone know if you can recycle old snowboards in Denver,CO? Afew years ago you could take them to Colorado ski and golf but not now.
  14. Is this still available and is 435.00 the price drop price? I am interested. I live in Denver and could come to Boulder to get it? If you see this reply I am in Boulder right now and could come buy to look at it and possibly buy? You can cal me at 720-485-2283 Matt Curtis I will be coming back up tommorow to ride at Eldora as well I am at all Board sports right now.
  15. So here is what I did and it worked. I stood in my current setup on the carpet and noticed that my front leg was going backwards behind the boot shell if I wanted to push on the shell for heelside so I adjusted the front boot for way more foward lean. i also noticed that my knee was off center to the right so I put in outward cant in my front boot which lined it up better. i also am running outward cant in rear boot as I am very bow legged. I also added more foward lean to the rear boot and used the gray toungue to make it stiffer. All of this made me get foward more and took the stress off the back of the front leg. it felt real good today on the hill and I was carving better. I don't think I need inward cant since i am very bow legged? the gray toungues keep my feet more comfortable as they don't collaspe when I tighten the buckles down. Since I am running way more foward lean I don't need to try to flex the boots foward as much because I am already in the right place. I can crank the buckles down more which really works well on the front foot which helps to keep my leg in the right place and provides more power when needed. I had a great day today and will continue to give this new setup a try. i think i improved my turns a lot by doing this. I am riding the Virus upz boots which suposedly have a stiffer race cuff than the other upz although they do make a boot that is stiffer than mine as well.
