Another great ST thread! Good info, good stories, good folk.

When I first saw the title of this thread, it was right next to the Bachar-Yerian thread. I read "re-soler" as someone doesn't just solo something, but soloes it again! Bachar and soloing being the operative connection. Since this is the Taco Stand, I figured, "sure, that's plausible."

I'm off caffeine (but not coffee), so I gotta figure out what else to cut down on!

"Does anyone resole with Onyxx?"

Barry does. He may not have it on his flyer (i havent seen one in a while) but I have onyx on a couple of resoles Barry did. Call him to confirm, but I don't think he has stopped using onyxx.

For a local bro bump -

Just got back one of my pairs of Mythos from Barry. Top-f*#king-notch, as usual! I swear these things are better than they were new! Barry is the man!

I just got 2 pairs of shoes back today. Not only do they look and feel FABULOUS, but it's the little things that count. Also in the box was a hand-written note, stickers, 2 mints, and the best and most surprising thing -- 2 pairs of new shoelaces.

Locker didn't give me any mints, but he did include a 6 pack of Sierra Nevada, an autographed photo and PR bling. I am sure the rest of you can vouch for that.

The rubber is the most amazing stuff I have ever seen. I can smeer on sheer nubbins.

Got my Kaukulators back from Barry, he fixed a number of problems brought on by abusive offwidth climbing. They now sport slightly thicker heel rands and look great! Other repairs here and there are a hallmark of Barry's careful craftmanship.

These boots were resoled and repaired about 1.5 years ago by Barry and have been used extensively in the intervening time. Barry has been so good he's the cause of my delay in getting a pair of JB's (though that will be rectified soon).

Barry recently did an old pair of kaukulators, they came back as good as new. The toes had been turned into a big blob by the previous resoler and came back beautifully chiseled. I too am very happy with his work. Very very happy.

Wanted to do a quick post even though I'm supposed to be frantically packing up for my road trip.

We just got our seven pairs of shoes back from Barry along with a note on how to take better care of our shoes, shoelaces, and mints, which Erik calls "life-savers for climbers." I think the mints are for the mail man though. I say that because Barry just sounded like such a thoughtful guy every time I talked to him on the phone. And the resole, what a beautiful he has done!

Okay, back to packing...

Does he use Vibram XSGrip 2? Does he have a website?

I spoke to Barry back in Dec. and at that time he thought he wasn't going to be taking any new work until spring. Not sure if that's still the case, but you'll want to call him to find out.

So Obama is not only a Marxist fascist Kenyan, he's doing resoles in the White House? What kind of rubber is he using?
