Thanks again to Pat and Kelowna Cycle for offering us these Roller Skis at a big discount. $210 verses the $320 retail price. This has saved the members of the team well over a Thousand Dollars.
It turns out that mounting 12 pairs of Roller Skis is a lot of work! Most needed to be completely disassembled so that the binding jig could fit on the ski correctly. So make sure you thank Coach Adam for his efforts;o)
Almost all of the skis are at the Pandosy Kelowna Cycle location ready for pickup. I will drop off the last two on the way to the Thursday Apple Bowl Critical Speed Test; 1 Haaheim and 1 Hay. All of the boxes are clearly labelled with your name and the cost of the bindings on the box.
On the Box it will also say “Do you need Carbide Roller Tips?” In general the answer is YES. Here is why:
Great quality long lasting carbide tips saving you money. Replace your snowbaskets with these so you don’t have to replace your snow baskets which are more expensive. All Snow Baskets are not as durable as proper Roller Ski Tips but if your snow baskets tips are not Carbide they will wear out almost immediately and slip.
Kelowna Cycle has two different colours of Baskets. The Red ones fit most of the poles on the market including Swix and Yoko. The Bright Green baskets are a little smaller and fit the Oneway Poles.
KC can mount you Tips there if you like or you can follow these simple instructions.
To remove snow baskets, boil water and dip them in (heat gun also works well) to loosen the heat sensitive glue. Slide off baskets and then using some hot glue, slide on the Tips and make sure they are pointed forward so they’ll stick into pavement when poling. If you don’t have a hot glue gun, just buy a hot glue stick and melt with a lighter and dap onto the pole end before sliding on the ferrule. Always use heat sensitive glue so they can later be removed.
If you missed out on the March Roller Ski order but would still like to get some skis Kelowna Cycle has additional skis in stock at the Pandosy Location.
This Weekends Roller Ski got moved to Sunday so that we could do more tree planting Saturday. Please come out and Contribute to this fundraiser the funds raised will be significant.
