For Those of you who dont Steal Rental Poles...
if youve got some rockin poles, and need to head in for a massive piss... has anyone got a decent way of locking their poles up? someones gotta think of something brilliant or ill have to become a rental pole stealer soon enough too...
ha ha, headed in for a massive piss? never, lots of trees in tahoe.
haha yea seriously, don't think i've ever gone inside for that order of buisness in tahoe
f*%& poles. i always stole rentals, and decided to be a nice guy and buy them this year. spent like 45 after tax. the fucking things were both bent at the end of the day. never again.
yeah...just walk inside with the poles, or seperate them and put em at opposite places
composite poles dont bend. i dont let mine leave my sight.
yeah i looke for some real nice like 6 speeds or something to steal, as long as they arent next to a pair of twins i figure its just some rich asshole who hates us. then i dont have to pay 120 bucks.
I think that stealing something that actually belongs to someone is pretty lame.
I buy a crapload of poles at the thrift shop or ski swaps for super cheap so I don't have to worry baout breakage or my shit being stolen. I have never had any problems with my poles being stolen, I leave all my stuff on teh snow for lunch or whatever else I may do in the lodge.
well if you're asking this, i assume that you also lock up your skis. y not just run the cable from your ski lock through the loops on your poles?
Probably. They'd still physically be easy to jack, but it'd look a lot more suspicious if some dude was yanking on them until the strap came through the cinch thing.
stealing in general is pretty lame.
if you cut your poles in half and then put a wood dowel inside it will give it a lot of stregnth without a lot of extra legnth. the more time you spent shaping the dowel the better your pole will be.
I go through 3 pairs of rentals a year. So fucking cheap.
if you're so scared that someone is going to jack your poles, use a cable lock. run it through the brake on your skis and wrap it nice and tight around your poles.
that's all i've got. i've really never locked my poles
i have 6speeds id feel bad if someone took them.
i don't steal rental poles, i "rent" them for free when i need them, and turn them back in last day of the season. last year i had a pair of poles i "borrowed" 4 years ago, figured out i would have to give them back
i use garbage poles that the neighbors throw out
why buy expensive poles in the first place?
stealing stuff from people is so damn mean.
I have my leki slaloms for 7years, i payd around 100$ for them, i tahe them with me everywhere.
haha sucks to be ur girlfriend. if i was a guy, i'd do the same. i broke up with my boyfriend last yr for the same reason
they just shatter instead! I had a pair of K2 4speeds. I fell and landed on one of my poles and the damn thing just shattered/split under me. I spent all evening pulling shards of ski pole out of my side with tweezers!
yeah shove them up ur ass while you piss
LOL dude the same thing happened to me last year...i was commin down to the lift and stopped then i put all my weight on my pole and it jus slit down the center....it never bent tho!
get ski check. its only like $30 for the season at my mtn. better to be safe than sorry
i hate you retards for stealing from people.
rental poles are disposeable, so that really doesnt bother me, but damn. stealing from skiiers is gay.
If you usually keep your wrist straps at the same length why not just super glue the buckle so you can't un-lace the straps, then run the lock through the straps.
all you gotta due is have short poles, nobody seems to mess with your poles if your only 5'1
Who the FUCK goes inside to take a piss when skiing?
Buy some cross country poles. Huge ones, like 8 feet long woth boots so big you can get HBO on it. Sure you'll look like a knob, but you could easily find them once their stolen.
i was thinkin about gluing the strap together too, seems like the best idea
i agree. Just buy some cheap poles and put them under your skis or something
does nobody else have ski check for when you go inside??? and why worry about your poles, because you obviously are leaving your skis outside too? also even chicks pee on trees while skiing so grow some!
If any of you punks come into my rental shop and steal my poles...poles cost like 20 bucks a pair, and who says you can't use a slightly bent pole?
yah take the ends and strap themt ogether oppistely (bottom to hanlde) not only does it keep your poles safe give you mad room int he urinals from pervert gapers
I got 5 pairs at a ski swap for 1.50 each.
pissing is easy, its when you go in to grab lunch they snatch you.
man, you`re just too cool!
bury them under some snow
armada poles are really sick man, you can take off the handle, theres a clip and there super sick and light
^ exactly but whats to stop some pricking from fuckin with them
i stole rental poles, they are pe poles btw.
Here is the bottom line...
Real skiers respect other skiers, regardless of perceived wealth or your own grossly mispercieved entitlement.
The comments "oh he is rich and won't mind me stealing" is complete bullshit and not proper justification.
I'll put it this way,. you steal someones ski gear, you deserve to have everything you own stolen from you. You steal my poles, I'll steal your car and your girlfriend. there is no moral difference between stealing soemthing of less "value" than something of higher "value". Those poles you rip off might be a struggeling instructor's who cannot afford another pair. Who the fuck are you to judge who is worthy from stealing from.
Skiers who steal are dirtbags! You are the scum of our sport and deserve nothing but blown acl's and suffering.
Oh, but you only steal from rental shops? But then you whine all day lond about how much a hamburger costs? W'ell guess what assclown, it is because of idiots like you stealing services that cause resorts to have higher prices.
So to those of you who ride with stolen gear, go suck a dick sideways and stay the hell off of my mountains
I've never had poles stolen. if you're that worried put one pole with one ski on one rack then the others at a different one
I hope someone steals your skis, and your car, and your boyfriend
i always found that if you put your poles on the ski rack in a realy really akward way, such a way that makes it really hard and annoying to get the poles off unless you know how u put them on, whoever wants to steal them will give up. and ive never had any poles stolen. ive only broken 6 pairs
i pull the grips off and pee in my poles
ive never heard of stealing poles just skis
