Which is more Dialed In...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
the fit of your ski boots or the fit of your bike(s)?
post #2 of 11
Bike is a lot easier to fit. But I need to ride in sandals whenever weather allows because of damaged feet from ill fitting ski boots.

I would have to agree. Bikes are a lot easier to personalize. Thousands of things you can do to a bike! Bling Bling Bling!

Particularly with a lack of bootfitters in WV. Probably easier to find a bootfitter in South Carolina!

I can make a bike with a "fair" initial fit work for me. Bikes don't pack out either.

I'm not saying I've never injured myself by riding an ill fitting bike, but I knew the seatpost was too short, I just didn't know it mattered that much. The correction was easy to make, although it should have been made sooner.

No Question. The Boots fit better; I don't even know how the bike is supposed to fit.

I'd say my skiing skills are much better than my mtb skills, so boot fit is much more important.........

Boots. So much more.

What about golf clubs?

Boots for sure. I will admit that I have three different bikes with different geometry for different types of riding.

But, my ski boots are one piece of gear that I'm married to. In fact, if I were stopped in airport security and told I had to make a choice of proceeding on my ski vacation with my husband or my boots, Mr TC would be on his own. C'mon, he's a big boy, he can find his way, right?

Its hard to compare boots to a bike.

A bike is a machine. There are thousands of different options for a bike. There are probably hundreds of different choices for tires alone. You can also get a custom made frame. I've heard of companies that make custom sized wheels and tires. Like on those big wheel antique bikes.

I guess it depends on the definition of dialed in.

A better comparison might be bike shoes vs. ski boots.

Boots for sure, generally just get on the bike and ride.
