Short thread this one, I expect, but all the same
I was going to add this to SKT's post about whether he needs or is just tempted by a new bike - and by Mr CF's reply about N+2 skis!
And it made me think 2 thinks at the same time, which is challenging for a bloke.
Think 1 - how many people ride equably their N+n? I don't. I don't get rid of the old faithfuls, but it's more sentimentality than anything else
Think 2 - How many skiers ski equably on their older skis? Is there, like bikes, a 'ski for purpose' rationale - or is it just hard to sell or fling a previous source of joy?
I still like, but hardly ever use, my 1990 steel fast tourer, and I can't imagine using my 1990 K2 'Grand Slaloms', taller than me by 4 inches, 3 inches wide at the tips and parallel as a railway line!
But I couldn't fling 'em!
OK, over now!
