Lange RX 130 LV replacement flex adjustment screws

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently discovered that one of my ski boots was missing both flex adjustment screws.  Not sure when this happened, but definitely explains why I thought the RX130 plastic was super soft in the spring.  I'm guessing that it was just my one boot without these screws running as about a 100 boot.  Anyway for now, I switched up the screws so I have one on each boot on the bottom location which makes boots about 125 in stiffness.

 

So, my question is this.  Where can I find two replacement flex adjustment screws for this boot.  The screws are a touch smaller than anything I have for other boots like the replacement soles for tecnicas.  I bought these boots at the beginning of last winter from start haus in truckee.  However, I've been back east for the summer and I doubt any of the ski shops around here even carry this model. I will be back in tahoe in a few months so I guess I'll stop into the store.  Are these screws something that can be ordered online or through a lange dealer?  I doubt its something anyone stocks or has extras. 

 

cheers!

i am sure Jim will have some spares in the workshop down at the Start Haus, but any Lange dealer should have a handful or if not be able to put their hands on them pretty quickly from Lange USA

 

when you put them in, drop a dab of thread lock on them and then check them every so often with the supplied Allen key, same applies for the ankle hinge points, these are a nut and bolt which you are flexing through, nuts and bolts can loosen with time so a little maintenance every few trips is well worth the 2 minutes it takes to check them.

 

I have had a client where one of the cant bolts fell out and a less than reputable dealer in a small resort in Austria said that there was no way of getting a replacement and he would need to buy a new boot, great sales ploy, thankfully the customer wasn't mad enough to believe the shop!
