Marker MRR mounting Q'q

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I sourced a set of MRRs (see pic), to mount on a pair of NOS Olins.

Does anyone have the mounting instructions for these? I know how to mount a binding (done quite a few in my days) but I want to avoid any pitfalls that might be specific to these.

Any help/insight welcome.

1. Mount the skis shiny side up. biggrin.gif

2. A jig helps, these take very little forward pressure.

^^^^Seriously, get a pattern or better, a jig. Do a search for instructions or at the least, drill bit info. Incidentally, I own these. Nice binding, actually. Never clear why they discontinued them about the time they figured out how to keep the heels from flying apart. My theory is that users got too old to bend down...

I ask here *because* I did a search and found no relevant info. Would you have a source?

Very little on line information on 20 year old bindings regarding mounting. Sorry. Oh. little tabs above the springs need to match the forward pressure with the DIN. RossiSmash has the jigs for these, I left them for him, I think he could be talked out of them.

This is useful, thank you. As for the jigs, I think I'll have a source at my ski shop (they tend to keep stuff, even if the staff changes and the knowledge is gone). I don't see Rossi's crossing the oceans twice.

Note also these toes have individual toe height adjusters.

Seriously, inquiring minds want to know. Why did this design go away? It seems to be a better designed Look p/FKS, in the sense of the heel response. Was it just a case of marketing types making the call, or was there a fundamental flaw somewhere? (Other than the notorious Marker toe from that period, which could be updated; think current Duke style toe with MRR heel.)

When I get more time later today or tomorrow, I will post my opinion

I keep hearing from bad Marker toes. Is that one bad in any way? If it has a recognised flaw, I'd love to hear about it here and now, and look for some other MRR toes.

 

BTW Phil, I noticed the 2 height adjusts in front, which are great attention to detail.

Got around to doing a trial fit on a junk ski. Used a 3mm drill bit, depth gauge. The boot is perfectly centered on the ski's marks.

Anyone care to judge the tension markers?

I probably have a couple of pair?  I skied them almost exclusively until the mid 80's, when Aspen put in the Gondola.

I have to ask, what is the relationship with using MRR's and Aspen putting in the Gondola???popcorn.gif

The older MRR's you actually had pull up by hand and even the newer step ins took more time to put on than Slam ons!

Ever had to beat on the springs with a screwdriver handle to get the ice out?
