Rumors about what makes Ciquerider quiver

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Cirquerider used to be one of the solid posters in the gear section on EpicSki, but with the addition of duties behind the scenes(thank you for that) and a new found passion for his motorcycle,Tom and Jamie's Excellent (motorcycle) Adventure , he's been off the radar just a teensy weensy bit.  (I wonder if it makes him nervous when a woman says teensy weensy in the same sentence with his name biggrin.gif )

 

On with my thoughts.....(where was I?)

It has come to my attention that his quiver has not been updated in quite some time, and he may need some help from the Bears to decide if he should update it, and if so, with what?

Heck, even he posted that he was fishing for advice last year, but he didn't find quite what he was looking for...

 

 

Maybe it suits him well and his bike or a spicy tango is all he needs to make his quiver complete th_dunno-1[1].gif

 

C'mon Cirque, lets see it?  We'll be gentle........we promise!wink.gif

Hw needs a pair of Nordica Radicts. Go big (in size, shape and graphics) or go home!

You guys are giving away epic skis, I recall at least a couple pair in the last few years, and still can't get this man a quiver? Seriously?

 

I may have a solution for you if he wants something cheap (free)... I have a pair of Huge troubles that really are not fitting into my quiver any longer.

Would help to know what he's got these days. I seem to recall once upon a time he skied Mantras. I think something for groomers more like this: http://freeskier.com/gear/2012/ellison-shizzy-skis-review. Yeah, and then these for deep days: http://freeskier.com/gear/2012/atomic-bent-chetler-skis-review. And gotta do something about the parka: http://freeskier.com/gear/2012/nike-60-slainte-jacket-review. These pants'll go nicely: http://freeskier.com/gear/2012/salomon-supernatural-ii-pants-review. There ya go; Cirque's makeover complete. Rad...

Since Cirque is not sticking his toe in the water (yet) I did some digging and found the last known picture of his quiver.  There may have been changes, in fact I believe that he said that it's changed a bit, but this is something he'll have to fill in.  Notice the date on this post from the Quiver Picture thread January 2007 eek.gif.....

All the work he does behind the scenes, this man deserves a new toy or two!

My ears are burning and my face is red. redface.gif

 

My quiver is neglected, and much of it resides in the attic.  Most of that is retired, but there are not any replacements yet.

 

Hey, can I enter the Epic Skis contest?  I can give them a good home and take them to all the events.

You need to GO to events to TAKE them to events.

 I need to HAVE them to GO to events with them.  Simple chicken and egg conundrum.

 

Note to Trekchick...my quiver is still longer than yours...its just older

So Cirque, do you ever use your AK Rockets, or are they just the most expensive (in $ per day) great deal you've bought on a whim? wink.gif

 

You ought to snag up those Huge Troubles Tromano is offering, then you can lean them against the wall and take a picture of them with the rest of your props, er, skis. duck.gif

And I thought you were a philosopher.

Is there a story behind the solitary Olin, stripped of bindings? Just wondering how it made the cut.

Yeah, what's the story there....popcorn.gif

The Olin Selkirks never left El Dorado Hills.  They were part of the great dumpster purge.

 

As Volantaddict so eloquently inferred regarding the AK Rockets, a cheap deal, no matter how steep, may not be a good deal.  However the Look bindings on those skis are another matter.  I grossly overpaid for them in a TGR auction to benefit Plakespear, the kid who ultimately succumbed to Melanoma.  Best money I ever threw away.  BTW, bindings were donated by MTT.

 

The Dynastar 4X4s are retired to the attic, and the Six Stars are in an Attic in Pittsburgh PA and I use them on occasional trips at Christmas, so I am effectively down to two pairs of skis with approximately the same dimensions and handling characteristics, a 185 Mantra and 184 Sugar Daddy. and for carvers, the Nordica Hot Rod Nitrous in a 178.  Truth hurts.

Cirque, think I understand your philosophy on the quiver.

 

It really is not about the arrows in the quiver, it is all about the tango dancer, er Indian.  NAA, tango dancer is better here.  spit.gif

The last time I made a lot of gear changes was when I added the Six Stars and Mantras to the quiver, and retired the Dynastars.  I remember well how much the newer designs made skiing easier and opened up new possibilities.  Since I have neglected the quiver for about six years now, I have great expectations for the renaissance.  However, I always felt that it was indeed the Indian and not the arrow, and so I will again post my image of dancing in powder on a 68 mm ski.  LOL  Yes, there was room for improvement.

I cultivate my duel nature, spiritual/smart-ass, I'm going for paradoxical. biggrin.gif

 

Serious though, Huge Troubles sound like a good stick for you, you're a big guy, and ski in the land of the big snows, you need big skis.

+1 on the Huge Trouble/Sixth Sense Huge being a great ski for coastal powder.

Its been a few weeks and the contest is ending soon.  

What say ye Cirque.....you got a ski in mind or shall we just send you one and bill your CC?

Just put me on the Start Haus demo plan.

Someone could enter Cirquerider in the SkiLogik EpicSkis contest...there's nothing in the rules that says you can't write on behalf of someone else. 

post #22 of 22
I am considering an entry for tomorrow. I covet those beautiful skis, and they look versatile. The big question becomes what bindings could be put on them that would fit a lot of different BSL.
