    That does look mental and I can't quite get my head round it. Also, make sure you have the right size! Those old peugeot's can sometimes have different sized steerers too sheldonbrown.com/velos.html

    I'm in the middle of a large with no hat, and towards the higher end avec, and can squeeze a medium on my head on the loosest setting. Only problem is the medium sits a bit higher due to it's puny size.

    Lazer Blade. I just bought one to replace an old Spec Echelon. Slightly narrower fit than a Mojito, which is good for me, excellent ventilation and pretty light for the money.

    I can't believe how many people seemed to walk away from that relatively unharmed. I think 2 guys got stretchered out and a few limping, but other than that just a few snapped forks and wheels. The race after was pretty impressive, I've no idea how Colin Strickland managed to stay out on his own for so long. Also the women's race was amazing, Keira McVitty did some pretty incredible turns on the front.

    3.0's are nice, incredible flex pattern and I quite like the lightweight core in them. Makes a really good freestyle-ish floaty ski. If you want a dedicated pow ski though I'd go for something wider. The 4.0s or something like a shredittor, the extra surface area just makes skiing trees and deep stuff so effortless.

    The Supernatural 92 isn't so different to the Ova, maybe a bit stiffer underfoot from memory, although I haven't skied this year's Ova. I would really recommend testing out a few skis before you buy a pair. Test a few in different waist widths, have a look at things like rocker and tail profile and try and work out which combo might suit your skiing best.

    Why those two may I ask? They are very different skis. The Ova is a fairly narrow, soft-tipped resort ski and the Supernatural is a relatively stiff charger.

    Sick days come in a few widths, like the supernatural and are all fairly different skis. Which ones were you looking at? The wider ones are good for deep tree-run days, as they are fairly soft and have a tapered tail so make for easy short turns in pow.

    And you have to factor in the cost and effort of at least one wax per year, and probably a service, which would cost about 30EUR.
