Christian's Bio

I'm an endurance junkie, the longer the better. I mostly just enjoy being outside exploring new places and routes.

The short answer is no. If you are really good at waxing you could take a skate ski and make it work for classic, but it would be less than ideal. A waxless classic ski (the kind with scales in the middle) would be extremely taxing to skate with. If you are looking for some good cross training for cycling and go skate style. I ditched the trainer years ago in favor of skate skis and loved it. It is much easier to get an aerobic workout from skating right away than it is from classic style. I would also suggest you take a lesson so you are less likely to form bad habits that become hard to break down the road.

It used to be that traditional frames flexed a little bit more since the overall geometry was bigger. However, with as stiff as frames have been getting the difference in flex between the two would be minimal. Sloping frames do tend to react a little quicker when cornering and accelerating than traditional frames but it sounds like that's not a big priority for you.
I would say go for the traditional if you're going to be doing longer rides without racing much.

I own the masocshist's as well as the montrail streaks and for the non-technical stuff I prefer the streaks. The Masochist are a little bit stiffer and a little bit narrower than the Streaks but they weigh the same. If you're looking for a similar fit but a little more comfort then go with the Streaks, you won't be disiappointed.

Yes. It has two small standard type screws on each side that are easily removed. You would have to replace it with something made by Suunto though since it is a proprietary design. BC carries a velcro strap that IMO is more comfortable than the plastic band that it comes with.
