Boot Softening

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've just bought a new pair of Lange FR 120's. I know I can soften the flex some by removing the rear screws. Does removing only one of the two screws have any effect? Or do you need to remove both? Is there any concern about loss of stability if I do this, or is the boot stable no matter what?

If I were in your shoes, what I would do is remove the liner, and look in the shell... see if you can figure out how it works... Understanding the mechanics of the boot will help a lot more than someone telling you what will and won't work...

I'm trying to find some info on the technology behind it, but I can't seem to find it.. my guess would be this:
If the screws are on different sides of the boot, removing one may soften the flex on that half and make the boot 'asymmetrical'...

If the screws are vertically aligned, there may or may not be an effect... if there is an effect, there's a chance it'd be a slight softening..

Just try it, though... take one screw out, see if it is noticably softer... take them both out, just check it out... As far as if it's a 'good' or 'bad' idea would be more of a question for someone with a deep knowledge of Lange boots.

removing one screw will not soften the boot much, removing both = 20-30% softer.

it is reverseable so try the mod and see if you like it, if not screw the bolt back in

boot is with with both, one or none, see what you like..
