Marker Baron Forward Pressure

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi All, can anyone confirm that the forward pressure setting shown below is incorrect? From what I have been able to find through the search function, it seems as though the adjustment screw would be considered to be sticking out too far...

 

I just picked these up from the shop that mounted Barons onto my new Bacons.

I had been told with your boots in the binding, that screw should be flush (in) the housing. So yes, I agree it is out to far.  Odd how many bindings I see come from the shop with the forward pressure set to lightly.

Was the boot locked into the binding when the photo was snapped?

If your boot is in that binding, then yes, not enough pressure. Should be flush (at least that's what I've been told).

Thanks for the replies! Much appreciated. 

 

Yes, the boot was in the binding for the photo. 

 

Can I just adjust this myself, or should this be done at the shop and tested afterwards?

 

I understand that the boot should be out of the binding while adjusting.

It is easy to adjust.  Take the boot out of the binding; turn the screw, you will hear it click about once every quarter turn.  Count the clicks so you will know how far to come back if you go too far. Put the boot back in securely, clamping the binding down.  Check the forward pressure.  Repeat as needed.

 

The only fly in the ointment, is that the clearance on some boots and barons could be very limited.  For some reason there have been reports of folks not being able to get the screw flush AND get the boot in the binding. I would have to see one in my hands to figure out what's up with that  th_dunno-1[1].gif.  In the mean time, if it don't work, you can just back the screw back out again.  No harm done.
