Bending is not the best choice for this application I feel. Just thought ya should know.
For one, no you can't send FKS into Rossi and get new brakes pressed in. Rossi/look only sells the the heel as a unit, and charges 130ish for it. That's more than I paid for my FKS new. Yes, shops can change the heel peices, but most people won't fork over 130 just for new brakes.
Second, people have been bending FKS race brakes for years before there was wide FKS brakes, and they work fine. I have over 200 days of skiing on mine without a single run away ski.
Both of those started out as skinny ski brakes, and have plenty of reach.
As for the OP, why not see if the shop will order 115mm heel price and swap it out?Edited by clink83 - 1/12/15 at 7:58pm
