Binding bolts for new Madds?

I remember some comments last year about needing longer? binding bolts for Madds than standard.

Does anyone know if this will be the case with the new boards? Where to buy, etc?

I have a 170 coming that will be hitched to TD2 stepins.

TIA,

Thomas

Ditto for me. I sent Madd another email asking them about this... and hopefully they will reply... but it sounded like I could just go to Home Depot and pick them up. Anyone "in the know"?

Thanks,

I think for a TD2 you will want these in 16mm

and for a Catek you will want them in 14 mm

Remeber on the the TD2 that the heads are a 5mm and these are 4mm which is more prone to stripping the with high torque. So be sure to lube the head of the bolt. This is true on the Catek's as well but these are the same screws that the Catek's come with as standard equipment. The TD2s bolts are custom made for Bomber and as far as I know are only avaliable in the stock length.

I am not sure if these are the correct lengths for the MADDs, but these are the lengths that I use on one of my Coilers with the recessed inserts. But these are the correct bolts you just need to figure out the correct length.

McMaster is great and the shipping is fast. I buy all my bolts from them if I can and they have them in stainless whereas the Depot is spotty at best with stainless fasteners. ACE hardware is much better when it comes to fasteners.

Thanks Ben... yea that's sound like the post I read months and months ago (I remember the 5mm vs 4mm warning). What do you mean lube the head of the bolt, you mean that outer head that touches the bindings, or the allen key insert? 50 piece bag? I guess since there are like 3-4 Madd owners in the Bay area we could split them (Joe?). Or I'll check out ACE to see if I can buy them in like a 25 pack.

Hey Lonerider, forget about ACE, you'll never find a good selection of metrics there, especially if you want stainless.

In the Bay Area, the best place is Global Metrics in Belmont. They've got what you need and won't make you by 50 pieces when you need 8. They are super friendly. I often bring bikes or boards with me and they just let me wander about the warehouse trying different stuff until I find what I need.

Call ahead, they have wierd hours (weekdays only and close early).

Arvin,

Definitely go check out Global Metrics. The crazy mullet-wearing chicks there will hook you up. Mark turned me on to that shop 2 years ago and I've probably been there 10 times for different stuff. It is right down the street from us in Belmont (near the train tracks).

Will do once I get my board... and a pair of bindings :D

I use Pedros SYN grease for all my bolts. Bob uses Slick Honey. Both are great but Pedros is easy to find. Don't use anything petro based though as it will eat your board.

The advantage to grease is that it gives you proper torque. If the bolts are dry then you are getting a false torque where the surfaces meet because of friction. You overcome this with the grease and actually will tighten the bolt more and it will retain that torque better.
