eos4life Posted February 22, 2010 Report Share Posted February 22, 2010 I am trying to understand why I am having major front leg burn:flamethro. I was riding a Coiler free carve 178 until I switch to a Coiler VSR 173. I felt a real difference in my riding with the VSR (improved hold in the carve, ease of riding) but I am having front leg burn that will require skin graft....:( So here are the 2 different set-up. Maybe you will be able to help me understand and possibly fix my problem. Coiler freecarve 178 19.5 stance centered in the inserts. TD2 standard in the front with 3 degree toe lift TD2 step-in in the back with 6 degree heel lift with about a 1 degree outward cant. 57 degree front angle and 52 degree angle. No burning what so ever, well maybe later in the day. Coiler VSR 173 19.5 stance centered in the inserts. TD3 step-in in the front with 3 degree toe lift TD3 step-in in the back with 6 degree heel lift with 1 degree outward cant. 57 degree front angle and 52 degree angle. Noodles legs, wimp... I was under the impression that I had duplicated the same set-up and I was ready for a great day. No such thing...:( I had to stop about 2 to 3 times per run because my front leg was burning so much I could hardly stand up... I almost forgot, I also changed my liners. But I don't think this could be the reason but I thought I should mention it so you know everything that has been changed from the Freecarve to the VSR. I tried one change in my set-up before ending my day early. I moved my front binding assembly one insert back and it did help a little but I did not came close to my usual riding feeling. The only thing I can think of was that I am unbalanced with my weight too far forward. Maybe the TD3 step-in in the front is raising my heel compared to the TD2 standard? I was thinking about putting a 6 degree toe lift to change my weight distribution. What do you think? I was also thinking of putting my old liners back in my boots as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The kids are starting their school break and we had plan to go to the hills for a few days. This looks like a challenge for me at this point. I would like to avoid my kids from picking me up at the bar totally smashed. At this point, I feel I am not worthy of my VSR Terminator.:mad: Please help! Thanks.
