Slightly off topic: Any roller skiers out there?(9 posts)

Slightly off topic: Any roller skiers out there?zero85ZEN

Just curious. I've skated on snow for years but just got a pair of V2 Aero 125's. Great roller skies. Fun to ski without having to wait for snow. Great change of pace from riding the trainer as well.
I like to beat those guys with a stickLC

Had some guy just plow right into me. They need to invent some brakes that actually work for those stupid things.

Roller "skies"? I thought you were talking about skis. (nm)Kerry Irons

Good one. You caught my typo. Are you an editor for a major publishing house? Maybe you could be.

No he is not an editor. The jackass typed Roller "skies"?...

He put the question mark outside of the quotes... So he is probably just a first year English student, zero...

OK. This is definitely not the place to get into a roller skiing discussion. It seems to me that the vast majority on this board don't live in an environment where X-C skiing is even a blip on the radar. However, I do (i.e. Minnesota) and I agree it is a great change of pace. Kicks butt on riding a trainer too.

In the process of making them right now. Picked up some classics at a ski swap and I am building a skating pair with the design that was posted on xcskiworld.com. Can't wait to try them, especially since there's snow in the hills and ski seasons fast approaching.
