  1. Td3 3 hole center discs

    used once 35$ shipped lower 48 possibly trade for one 0degree td-3 cant plate shipped to me pay pal
  2. Id recommend getting some body armour
  3. sorry I dont want to offend or jinx anyone ,but whenever I hear of soft boot carving all I can think of is when I fractured my talus bone. I guess if your built like fred flintstone or ryan knapton you might ok.
  4. Freerider looking for answers!

    Tim, I had those binders , I had to make safety straps that went around the boot to keep them from popping open heelside. Im 200lbs , ride around 50-60days in a season , I found out the bails are a little weak & prone to breaking . burton hard boots are going to fit these step in binders better than most other boots . old burton boots will probably need new liners. the alps 3d hole pattern will also limit your option of bindings . alps are a wider carving boards, so depending on your foot size, maybe buy some bomber power plates to use with your soft boot setup? reviving these older set ups can be a little tricky & you might spend more than you want and still not get it up to par. Ideas for a good start ; get a complete tune up, base grind ,edge tune & wax. replace the step in binders with some ibex bindings & use your burton 3d center discs. find some burton hard boots on BOL , if needed put new liners in them. then go ride!
  5. What is your comfort Zone

    I discovered ice rash on my beer gut & my jacket smells like pine trees
  6. bennet is 5.0 w/ cindrich base ,,,, tracker is 130mm .. bushings on both trucks are set up for a 200lb person...

  8. Lee Canyon, NV?

    fun place.... arrive early the lots can fill up,,they charge for parking so have some small bills ready,, 5 bucks I think..
  9. ocasional heelside issue

    really....6 degree toe lift? thats to many degrees to roll over imo ... I'd ditch that go to 0/3 degree heel lift & keep leading with your head you will resolve that h.s. b.s.
  10. Carving progression

    toes down "rips it" for me!! you can take advantage of the whole range of motion in your calf muscle...A couple clicks of outward cant on both feet created a time warp on hs edge for me... I found that Inward cant & toe lift kinks me up,, over pressuring the boards edge ,, usually well be 4 my weight can properly balance out the desired angulation...
  11. Carving progression

    crazy indeed!!! when I see that many peeps on slope, I go home... looks like some gates were set up on another run, maybe try to get some of that action....
  12. The Heelside wiggle

    Be careful flexion & extension of the foot is complicated... I used to think toe lift was a good thing to flatten out your foot or parallel it to the board... I found that I was wrong! It causes more calf/foot muscle fatigue & foot compression in the boot... neutrality for me is next to zero forward lean a little outward cant with added heel lift... As for my heel wobble on a vsr ; a little outward cant taught me to move my body forward into the correct position and apply pressure vs. remaining centered relying on inward cant to apply the pressure for me... just my opinion
  13. -Nevermind...this can be deleted

    Hi bigwavedave, I can relate to the set up ... I think bomber has them back in stock, so I'm just going to order them... Thanks for your reply & good luck... a 4mm t -wrench really speeds things up..
