Can you replace pivot brakes?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

The thread topic says it all. Can the brakes on a pivot bindings be replace? I am guessing because they are offered in two sizes that they are not replaceable

These ones?

Short answer is yes you can remove them but I am not aware that Look sells wide brakes as spares.

 

See the following link for a tutorial on how to bend the existing brakes

Would I be able to buy a wider break from another company and use those or do you have to buy Look/Rossi/Dynastar specific brakes

The real question is, can you fit the 2010 Look Pivot 14 Wide (95mm brake) on a 2009 Line Blend which is 133-100-122. Thanks

You can ring rossi and buy replacement baseplates & brakes for $40.

 

And yes you can take them out and replace them. It's what you should be doing if you bend them

How do you remove the brake from the Look Pivot (2010/2011).  Anyone that has I would appreciate telling me how you did it. Any dealers stocking both sizes?

DHogg Thanks a bunch. Looked at it but didn't want to screw things up. Without the video that would be a difficult procedure to explain. Again, Thanks for your quick professional response.

You should be fine. Actually removing and re-installing the brakes is not overly difficult. If you do, however, decide to bend, go really slow because those brake arms will snap pretty easily if bent too fast.

Weird.  Two forums, 1000th posts on both, in the same night.
