Ok, I just saw Fin's posting that Bomber 3.0 will hopefully be around the corner...so I could just wait. But I have a broken cable on one of my Fintec heels, and obviously at the moment spare parts cannot be purchased from the Bomber store. I reached out to yyzcanuck asking whether he knew if the Intec cable parts are interchangeable with the Fintec. Does anyone have experience with this? Just to clarify - the cable hasn't broken, it looks like the plastic sheath that houses the cable has broken so the cable is visible and I can technically still release the pins by pulling on the cable but I seem to be pulling directly on the cable and it's hard work, takes a while to release, and I'm wondering if that pressure on the cable will end up snapping it very soon... Thoughts anyone?
Anyone replaced the bushings in Fintec heels? These are the bushings that fit in the sides of the heels (2 per heel), that the pins that stick out and ride in. If you've never taken yours apart and inspected them closely you may not know about these. Wondering how to remove the old and install the new bushings, without damaging the new ones. Thanks
Hello everyone. How do you all handle the snow and ice buildup on fintecs? I keep a not-so little tool on me and I generally have to smack the ice and snow off of them every chairlift ride up. Annoying as hell, 'specially when it's freezing and I've got to pull my hands out of my lobster mitts. And any little walk in powder conditions means I'm not clicking in without cleaning them. Kinda detracts from the ease and convenience of having them. Is there a better way? Also, those fintecs are slippery as hell. I love being able to click in right off the lifts without stopping, but some lifts are funky, meaning either steep and / or immediate turns required. In those situations where I can't click in right away, the rear fintec just don't allow me to control the board. It slips and slides on the board and I disembark all gook-like. Serious steez reducer. I'm about ready to throw the mother of all spiny stomp pads onboard, but the thought gives me great pause. What to do, what to do? Hell, what do all of you do? - Nate P.S. Saw a license plate frame today at the local lifts. "When hell freezes over, I'll ski there too." Awesome.
