It's the rollerski time of year!
Rollerskis are a great all-body workout and totally buff you...and hone you for XC. Aero V2's made a huge breakthru a few years ago with rollerskis that roll very smoothly...on chipseal and dirt! Now, all rollerskis, at a typical $250 a set, are pretty cheap amortize-wise coz they last for decades (wheels last a few years, aren't much $). But Jesenik skaters are only $70. Cool! I bought some Jesenik classic rollers and they've been perfectly fine. Just send a check to Czech! Fine workmanship at less than half the price.
