How to mount (system) bindings on rails - Page 4

post #91 of 94

I thought the arguing was entertaining, so I'm glad it was revived.

 

Over the years I've worked part time on and off in ski shops so I see it from the owners point of view. The guys getting the online ski bargain that are OUTRAGED at being quoted $40 or more by a ski shop for a service that takes 2-3 minutes and should be $10 or less really makes me lol.

 

It is the ski shop owner that is OUTRAGED that a person who took his business elsewhere would then ask the ski shop to facilitate a sale by an online competitor who under cuts his price by not offering service.

 

Attention online buyer: The ski shop owner wants to tell you to F'OFF,  but as a businessman he can't do that, instead he quotes you a price for services that will have the same effect.

 

I've seen ski shops offer lots of free or low cost services, but they save it for customers who spend $, not the grinders.

my boots are 345.  I can snap them in with the rear binding mounts on 339/357 and on 318/337.   318/337 feels a little tighter and better.  Do I use the size guide or what feels right?  I appreciate the noob help.

Rut row, Scooby.  Free advice coming up, use caution.  Use the indicator arrow on the side of the rear binding - see how it matches up with the fixed portion of the heel binding.  You want both arrows to match up, or at least be between two marks.  You may want to do some searches on this.  Some bindings use different methods to determine proper heel tension. 

 

Geez, you got big feet.

I said screw it and took them to the shop since I needed other work done anyway.  With pre-season discount it was $37 to mount and set the bindings, do the release testing and a wax job.  Not too bad.
