Swap Look PX brakes? 100mm for 80mm

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
First, let me thank Attacking Mid for bringing this up in another thread.

I am in the same boat as him. I bought the Look PX 12 Ti Lifter binding, complete with 100mm brakes, for my Dynastar Trouble Makers (80mm at the waist). I would like to swap them with someone who has a narrower brake that will work with the Looks. I reside in Denver. If you are near the Springs, or would like to swap via mail, I would suggest you contact Attacking Mid first. It's only fair. If he is good to go, or you are in Denver, please let me know if you are interested in a swap.

Thanks!

What a nice guy!

Did you get the other pair on Tramdock this am? The message popped up that they were only offering 2 at $110. I got one of 'em.

The binding's probably overkill for my 14 y.o. Maybe I'll put my older Rossi axial 11's on his and mount the new ones on my skis!

No, unfortunately. I was glued to Tramdock and Steepandcheap for a week or more, and I never saw them. Ended up getting the ones you saw on Backcountry Outlet for $140, shipped. Still not a bad price.

Yep. I was about to give up on Tramdock and buy those as well.

Are you on new TM's? I bought my kid the ltd. edition from last year. They were cheaper than the regular graphics, and surprisingly, he thought the regular graphics were too weird . I used to ski on the Course SL's which inspired the ltd. ed. graphics - LOVED those skis in their day.

If you see a 14 y.o. kid on those skis/binders all wadded up in a terrain park at WP, dust him off for me, will ya? I'll be over on the other side of the complex.

Yeah, I bought last year's ltd. ed. too. They popped up on Tramdock for $175 and I thought, what the hell. I bought them for more of a situational ski. I'll probably go 10% park/ 45% bumps/ 45% playing around on the frontside with the girlfriend and friends who aren't very good/fast.

The retro graphic is neat, although I was surprised when they showed up on my doorstep with a gold top sheet. Are your son's gold too? Every picture I ever saw of them online were silver/gray. By the way, what year were the original Course SL's from, mid-80's?

The LTDs, both TM and Big Trouble, were beautiful, especially compared with the fugly regular graphics. Come to think of it, maybe that's what inspired K2 to re-christen the PE as an Extreme with retro graphics.

These are my TMs (2005 78mm waist version)...

165cm


182cm

I got exactly the same deal, TM from tramdock and PX12 jibs from BC outlet. I was also surprised when the TMs showed up and they didn't look white at all, but after a few days the gold topsheet grew on me.

Nice, Squawker.

Yeah, his are gold also. He thought they were white like the version of Course SL's he used to see hanging out in the garage.

I can't remember the year, but after the gold ones, they came out in white with black sidewalls. The next year, they were white with white sidewalls - that's what I had.

Had MRR's on 'em which were such a cool-looking binding. I didn't realize until several years later that not everyone had to put up with their toepieces unexpectedly releasing at the most inopportune times! In fact, I still have the MRR's in a box in the basement - they were just too cool to throw away!

Hey,
I just regged here, but I've got some 80mm brakes and need 100s. I can't send you a PM due to too-low post count, but I'm in Denver and would be glad to do an in-person swap. If you've still got them, let me know.

Very Trustworthy

So I saw that "ChampagneForBreakfast" wanted to swap brakes but he was new to Epic. I had the brakes he wanted and I pondered his trust worthiness since he was new and then I thought, "Yeah, I've had champagne for breakfast, I'll give it a shot."
I sent the brakes, and he sent his brakes to me pronto.
Although new to Epic, good guy to deal with and highly recommended.

Thanks for the kind remarks!

Let me clarify though, the "champagne" in question is in reference to pow, not that I wake up and reach for the bottle. Although I have.. I did go to college!

Glad you guys were able to help each other out. I managed to scarf some skinny brakes out of CO ski and golf when I bought my new Salomon Falcon boots the other day. They were kind enough to toss 'em in with the boots for nothing.

Good skiing to you this season! I'm thinking about heading up to Copper tomorrow for a few turns to see how the new boots feel.
