12/6/2010 7:36:31 PM I decided recently I'm gonna settle down in Boston... but I'm a born and raised Californian, and so I've never had the need to buy a car that handles well in the snow. But anyways, I'm looking into buying a awd/4wd car so I can hit the slopes more quickly (it's really hard to get anywhere snowy via public transportation). So... do you guys have any suggestions for a car that's... well.. 1. RELIABLE (don't want it to crap out on me after a few years) 2. relatively cheap (<20-30k) 3. has a good 4wd/awd system 4. isn't too big (I wanna use it for things other than snowboarding, and parking in boston is a crap show...) - so preferably no SUV's. I've been thinking of getting a wrx or a used audi a4, but my friends have them, and I feel lame getting the same cars as them. I don't mind getting a 1-2 yr old car either, but I would rather get a new one and not deal with the hassle.
11/25/2010 7:00:54 AM Hey all, So me and pals are taking a trip up to Heavenly this weekend, but the resort we usually stay at (ridge) requires you stay for at least 2 nights. Do you guys know of any cheap places (preferably near Nevada, but doesn't really matter) that let you stay for a night? Thx
11/24/2010 7:17:07 PM So, my friend just picked up the Rome 390 boss's, and there seem to be a few problems. First of all, with the squishy foam cushion below the binding still attached, it's impossible to mount this binding on any of our snowboards... signal rocker, skate banana, park star... the screws don't reach. We got around this by taking off this extra cushion, but then putting in the footbed was super difficult because there was less space. Did anyone else have this problem/have any ways to get around this? Secondly, the binding plate doesn't seem to be fitting perfectly with the teeth on the binding - it works okay, but we're thinking they might've accidentally switched it out with a larger baseplate from a L/XL binding (some of the other components were L/XL, instead of S/M). Or... are all rome baseplates the same size? Thanks!
11/3/2010 9:15:20 PM So I've been waxing my boards for a while now... I mean. Not that long, but I've heard that you know that the wax is absorbed into the base once it gets clear and glassy. And, once you scrape and brush, it should make a squeaky sound. Do you guys know of any other tips to know for certain if your wax is absorbed? Or... is it possible for you to melt the wax, and spread it around, without it ever going into the pores of the board? Thanks!
11/1/2010 7:35:03 PM I recently purchased the '08 Union Force DLX's... and so I mounted them today to practice some ground tricks in my room, but when I twist my foot kind of hard, the binding visibly moves, maybe 3 or 4 degrees. I checked the screws multiple times, and they're basically the tightest they'll get. It's hardly noticeable, but is this a problem with the baseplate? Or should I maybe not use the washers with the screws?
10/28/2010 7:12:07 AM So, as some of you know, I started a forum to use as a database for people who have customized their boards, bindings, jib setups, wall mounts, etc. But getting a good number of samples is difficult, especially with such a low number of members. :P But in any case, I was wondering if people could give me permission to just use their pictures on my site? I'll be messaging people who I've found from the search on sierra, just to post their pictures/guides up, but I'm guessing it's not the entirety of the people who have done their own customizations/wrote guides. :) The link is sbcommon.com, in case you wanted to post it yourself - otherwise just post it here, and I can add it to my own posts? Thanks everyone.
10/26/2010 10:00:09 PM Did anyone go this past weekend? And was it crowded? Haha I'm thinking of taking a trip up there just to get a quick fix...
10/21/2010 8:17:06 AM I guess it's not a bad thing to save money, but I just bought some boots from a local store, and found them online for 50 bucks cheaper. I feel bad returning them, but I think I'm going to anyways - they don't do price matching, and 50 bucks is 50 bucks. Just wondering, what's your take on this kind of thing?
10/19/2010 2:46:11 PM Hey all, I just randomly decided to start a site for snowboard customizations. Don't get me wrong, sierra will always be my fav community, but there aren't any dedicated topics for posting your own snowboard designs, or getting advice on doing such things. And I'm the kind of person who really loves messing around with my stuff when I can't hit the slopes, you know? I.e. people who want to spraypaint their stuff, detune their edges, make custom jibs or jumps, backyard rails, etc. What do you guys think? Any feedback/suggestions? http://sbcommon.com
10/4/2010 4:33:03 PM We're thinking of getting my friend some Rome 390's or some Union Forces, but under the condition that he has to use them for life, and we get to spraypaint them bright pink. Will that void the warranty, out of curiosity, for bindings in general? Like... on the baseplate of the forces, for example? I don't think it voids those (or at least that's what they seemed to say). But what about any limited ones like on the Romes? I mostly don't really know if it varies from company to company... I know I could email every company I'm interested in individually, but that's a pretty tedious task, and I probably won't get answers as quickly.
9/29/2010 11:05:04 AM Hey all, Thanks for all the gear advice lately. I've just been trying to stock up in preparation for the coming season. And the last thing I need is a good video camera... But the thing is, I'm looking for something that can shoot 60fps, so I can smoothly show clips in slow motion. I've used the frame interpolation thing on 30fps camera clips, but it's not as smooth as I'd like it to be. I've been considering the GoPRO, but it's just a little too pricy right now. Do you guys know any other cameras that would be a better deal? Or shoot 60fps for cheaper? I've also been thinking about the Kodak Zi6 - know anything about it? It also apparently shoots in 60 fps. Thanks!
9/28/2010 10:55:32 PM So, I realize there are tons and tons of threads about music and snowboarding, and what you like to listen to while snowboarding, but I've been doing a lot of video editing lately, and I was wondering what your guys' fav songs would be if you were to make a video to them. I think there might be a thread about this from half a year ago or so, but I wanna start fresh, and that one was really spontaneous. I.e. for me, Aceyalone - Lost Your Mind is a pretty sick song to make a video to (and I did it), but I don't really like snowboarding to it as much as other songs.
9/27/2010 8:55:44 AM This is sort of random, but I know Academy does a sort of scholarship thing where they ask you to make a video for submission for a chance to win snowboarding gear, money, etc. Do you guys know of any other low-key snowboarding-related contests? Like... video tape yourself, or make a video or your backyard jib setup. That kinda thing? I'm getting antsy, and wanna work on prepping something to start once the season starts.
9/26/2010 10:51:57 AM I was thinking of getting these off of amazon, but it says M/L fits 5-8.5... What? The union size chart this year says 6-10 for M/L bindings. Did it change? Or is amazon just wrong? Coo.
9/24/2010 10:52:57 AM So, I wear a size 10 boot (might downgrade to a 9.5 boot later this year), which falls in the overlap between M/L bindings, and L/XL bindings, and I'm wondering which size to get, since I have a choice. They're Burton hails if that helps. I'm thinking of getting Union forces or contacts (not sure which one yet). I hear that getting bigger bindings means that the binding extends over more of the board's surface, giving you a bit more control, but I'm also concerned it might not be tight enough. I only ask because I bought Burton Missions years back, and they are not quite tight enough, even though it says they fit 10+. Thanks :)
