    Pretty much that, just minimal feature like somewhere to put your lift pass, generally a slightly looser fit, helmet compatible hood, higher collar to keep out that chilly wind...

    Probably because the ski market grew whilst the snowboard market shrunk. Line, Armada, Faction were all indie, but have grown, whereas in snowboarding, there's less money to support larger brands so they've all stayed small.

    Those skis look sweet, weirdly similar graphics to the 4frnt KYE series! Is the rocker as extreme as the graphic on their website? Looks a similar shape to a camox.

    Another thing to consider, don't wear them with any gloves that you like or were expensive. I know gloves get chewed up pretty quick snowboarding anyway, but my mate who used them went through a brand new pair of gloves in 4 days.

    I have a set of shimano 6 bolts on a stock Giant wheelset and a set of centrelock rotors on Dt dwiss 250s. Both Ice-tech and they don't need more than a couple of clicks on the pad adjustment on my Spyres when I swap between wheels. I've never had any problem with the adjustment screws loosening, mine definitely have a 'click'.

    Are you sure they take the same bearing? Presumably they're both integrated rather having an actual race?

    Edit: just looked at the pics. Ignore my questions...

    For comparison, heres mine where the spacing hook to hook is about 30cm, and the total width from bar end to bar end is 103cm. If I could move the central hook up, i could probably lose that extra 10cm, but the bikes would be really difficult to get in/out.

    Considering bars are ~42cm wide, you could just squeeze 3 in, with a 2up-1down configuration, but that would be very very tight, and things like the pdals would have to in the right orientation and you'd have to make sure the saddle of the down bike didn't sit between the bars of the 'up' bikes.

    I bought some jockey wheels and they definitely have ceramic bearings. They're Aluminium oxide rather than silicon nitride, so a bit less impact resistant. not that important in a jockey wheel though.

    Orient express? I seem to remember someone "on here" has bought these before.

    Got a bottle of this coming back from the states with the GF next week. She arrives back in the evening after a Uni exam I have. Win!
