Felt so good to tune this evening

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I just completed my first in-season tune.  Simple job, 100 and 400 diamonds followed by waxing with Dominator Graphite Zoom.  

 

It was so much nicer than the pre-season tuning I did.  Yes that was nice in October and early November to set the shop up (it's a bike tuning shop in the summer) and wax and tune some skis.

 

But this was different.  I'd skied 3 times on these skis and was preparing them to ski on again probably on Friday.  It meant a lot more and it felt so good.

Given the OP's screen name, this might be a good moment to ask what Bears listen to when working on skis.

For me, part of it is plain tradition. One day years ago I was listening to a live version of Chris Smither's "got no love today" and it's been a tuning staple ever since.

Well, if I was tuning skis today, it would have to be "Alice's Restaurant".

   For me it depends on my mood and what I am doing with the ski. For waxing and brushing or repair it might be Soundgarden, Dream Theater, or Ween. For edge work or sidewall planing I'll usually tone it down quite a bit and maybe go with some Vivaldi, Thievery Corporation, Air, or Slo-nice.  

 

  Here's a nice chill tune from Thievery:

 

   

 

 

  ...and a ripper from Dream Theater:

 

  

 

 

    Happy Turkey Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have very eclectic tastes so yesterday it was a streaming jazz station from San Fran on my iPhone, sometimes it's Jimi Hendrix, sometimes it's  "I Won't Back Down" rock, jazz.

 

When I'm commuting I often listen to Classical music as it keeps me calm and allows me to think.

 

Happy Turkey Genocide Week everyone, you're a great bunch of people!

Sometimes it's David Bowie, Linda Ronstadt (with plenty of accompaniment), currently some techno by Kalya Scintilla.
