My friend who isn't the greatest skier just came into the shop I "work" at and asked me to mount up a pair of Liberty Genomes for him. In case you don't know, the Liberty Genome has a 141 underfoot. He said he wanted to use them as his only pair of skis for the year. I feel bad for laughing at him, but he pretends to do research about it, and then he just buys the first pair of cool top sheets he sees. He did the same thing for a bike last summer, and bought a 2017 Norco Aurum (a downhill bike) that he wanted to use for trail and town riding. And just a few weeks ago, he came into my shop and tried to convince me that Surface Outsiders are park skis.
Of course I mounted the skis for him, and of course I didn't charge him for it, but he should really put some effort into not wasting his money.
