Getting back into Alpine skiing after a 40 year layoff. My last boots had laces. I got some Flexon Comp Bumble Bee's in great condition. The fit for my skinny, low volume feet is near perfect with molded Intuition (Scarpa) Power Wraps added.
So, I picked up a nice pair of Flexon 9.1's for parts. The buckle wires measure the same size as my Bee's.
1- How do I remove the top two buckle wires? Looks like they pull through the slot but which way and whats the process?
2- Will the lowest buckle cable interchange on the two boots?
3- How do you remove them. The lower buckle wires that is. I know how to take the boots off.
I realize I could drop $500+ at a shop for boots and fitting but that's why I left in the first place and what fun would that be? I know my way around tools. Rebuilt a 1976 Wheel Horse.Snow blower combo ( Yes, I'm stuck in a time warp I guess) and experience has taught me that if it's doesn't come apart easily, stop and ask questions.
PS - I'm probably underplaying my ski knowledge base as I've fitted some Scarpa Lasers for AT and have mounted my own bindings (Comforts and Sally's) so I'll get what your saying.
