0-60 in no time at all, scary how fast this thing gets ripping over day old fresh in the trees. Really want to put in some fat alpine bowl carves now. Long boards truck, short boards suck!
Yep... once you uncork the speed genie there is no putting her back in the bottle :D We have a support group on FB if you find your swallowtail dependency getting to be all consuming :wink:

Here are the mods if you want to make the crampons work

This would make a good stand-alone post (perhaps already done?) for people scratching their heads over trying to get their mr chomps to play nice with dual height heel risers. I may slice mine now. :)

Thanks for the ideas Firstlight, though I'll probably hold off on cutting up my Mr. Chomps for the time being.

Joined Snurfer though I hope there isn't a cure for the Swallowtail affliction.

All cures for "Swallowtail fever" are fruitless.
Don't look at it as an affliction.
The less people know the feeling the better!
