  7. Mountaineering gear garage sale

  8. More deals from the ski closet

    Alright, she's almost empty. As the cobwebs come out, more treasures from winters past appear! Get them out of my house before I have to move them yet again to a new house. Atomic Tourcap Superlight, straight out of the 80s. 180cm, clean bases, camber still good, and a perfectly functioning set of Silvretta 404s. Yup, the stainless ones that never break, ever. And they're pink. Rad. These come with the crampons for these bindings. No skins. $60? Merrill Supercomp Tele Boots Depending on how you like your tele boots to fit, these will fit someone from 9.5 to 10.5. I like them tight; I'm a 10.5. Someone tried them on who is also a 10.5 and said they were way too tight, someone tried them on who was a 9 and said they were way too loose. Try them on and then buy them. Classics, don't give up the feel of tele skiing by clamping on plastic boots. Enjoy the beauty and grace of leather and good deisgn. $60? Garmont GSM AT boots, size 28. Orange. A real gem, these are still the stiffest AT boots Garmont has ever made, if you want to crank downhill these are the boots to do it in. Light enough that I have ice climbed many 5+ pitch climbs in VT, stiff enough they hold up in the cliffs and trees. Thermoform liners, only been formed once. A steal at $200. And gorram it, I forgot to take a picture of the poles. BD Flicklock poles, $30. If you don't know what they are you shouldn't be privy to a deal on them.
  9. AT setup

    Atomic Tourcarv Alpin skis (red/white) 170cm with Diamir II bindings, crampons for the bindings, wide skins (yellow) cut to fit. $200 for skis and gear, I'm in Portland. I also have Garmont GSM (orange) boots in size 28 but I like them so they'll be $250. Cheers

    Skis and gear are sold. Boots still available for $200. Also have a pair of non-bent non-avalanche flicklock poles for $30.

    For sale: A 15" custom hardtail built on an aluminum Trek frame, 4" manitou fork with lockout, full XT group (mega-9 set), avid mag brakes, WTB/Sun wheels (the wheels were almost $500 alone), handfull of goodies. $600, I'm in Portland.

  19. FS: Tele boots, BD Cobra axes, BD screws

    Hola everybody, my ice climbing motivation has been winding down in years past, and it's time to pass the torch (and the gear!) along. I'm selling my tele boots, my good axes and a bushelfull of screws. Here is some info for ya: Boots: Merrill SuperComp, size 10.5 Leather with a plastic ankle cuff Three ratchet buckles, rubber toe buckle and a powerstrap Bright, clean vibram soles Pinholes clean and sharp These boots will let you feel your skis much more than a solid plastic boot. Can't free your mind if your feet are in a plastic prison ;o) $120, will throw in a brand new pair of Riva-Zs with risers and climbing bars for $20. Axes: 2002 BD Cobras (carbon fiber clearance shafts) Both hammers "Laser" picks (modified and tuned) No leashes $350/pair Screws: Turbo express screws (coffee grinder knobs) Well cared for, all are sharp, no rust I retire screws after a fall, none have been fallen on Lots and lots in 10, 15 and 19cm $30/ea If you don't like the prices, making me an offer you do like will be far more constructive than whining. No I won't sell you both tools and 8 screws for $200. I will also not convince you that this gear is right for you. If you don't know what it is, look it up or move on. I will happily ship anywhere you like as long as you pay the $5 it will cost me to send an insured PM package. I don't want to trade for the jacket you bought and don't like anymore. I have my own jacket. No ice climbing or tele lessons unless you are cute (and preferably female). I love paypal. If happy fun ball begins to smoke, seek shelter and cover head. PM for pics if you don't know what ice screws look like. Please be sarcastic when replying. Thanks for looking!
  20. FS: Tele boots, BD Cobra axes, BD screws

    Screws are all gone, thanks to all who were timely in completing their transactions. Still have the tele boots, a pair of Scarpa aid boots, a nice custom chalk pot, a solo-aid (with less than 30 pitches on it), and an oldie but a goodie frame pack. Good deals folks! Don't let them pass you by!
  21. Charlet Moser Pulsar Ice Tools

    ...And if anyone wants a spare pick for these tools, I just happen to have one. Cheers! http://www.kevinmoyles.net/cgi-bin/viewpage.cgi?kbay
  22. FS: Tele boots, BD Cobra axes, BD screws

    They are the OP aftermarket grinder knobs, you have to file them out a little bit to make them fit the BD hanger (thicker than the OP), then drill a small hole and use the correspondingly sized roll pin.
  23. FS: Tele boots, BD Cobra axes, BD screws

    Pics of axes and screws are up on my website (same link). I also added some aid stuff, a solo-aid and an unused premo bag hauling pulley/jammer. A local guy bought 8 screws last night with cash, all that's left of what I'm selling is online. Email moyleskd at yahoo for quicker service. Thanks for looking!

    Salt water, fluffy frozen water, a little bit of everything I have some other things for sale as well, pics are up at: "Kbay". I will be taking pictures of the axes and screws for those that asked about them this evening and posting tomorrow afternoon. Please keep in touch. Thanks!
  25. Anodized biners ?

    Anodizing is a process by which the outermost 0.002"-0.005" of surface metal is artificially oxidized. It's an electrochemical reaction that in the case of carabiners makes the (relatively) soft aluminum into harder aluminum oxide. Since this is uniform and it extends below the outer surface it doesn't look like corrosion. A fringe menefit is that you can ade dye to the electrolyte when you treat the metal, making all sorts of shiny pretty colors. This process doesn't change the strength of the metal either way, or the weight, or stiffness, etc. It gives a tiny extra bit of wear resistance because the surface metal is harder. Most stone is harder than AlO2 anyway so it will still scratch and wear, just slightly less quickly. Good things are thet it's prettier, you can see scratches and gouges more easily and it will make you feel like your gear will last longer Bad things are they it it adds 10-20% to the cost of the part and your gear won't match when you lose one and replace it with a different batch. For those of us who are colorblind and gainfully employed, these two don't really matter much anyway.
