Re: Tele Boot Repair

Have a shop drill the direct holes and put inserts in.  I believe this can be done, although I've never done it myself.

Here'd be my other idea.

If 22D doesn't want the Axls back, then buy a cheap pair of used rock skis and mount them on there, then goop the T1s and use them until they are dust
I believe Harv is in the “all skis are rock skis” camp
OK then, let me rephrase that:

Buy a second shit set of skis so you can still use your T1s and Axls (or whatever 75mm binding).

Re: Tele Boot Repair

I rarely don't ski something to protect my skis. But I wouldn't call my Whiterooms rock skis. They are my Whiterooms and they rock!

How much does the plate weigh?

I spoke to 22D just now. Seemed like a cool enough guy, should have asked his name.

He's not going to help me though, beyond mailing me some teflon tape or something similar.

He basically said we don't want to make or sell 75mm anything.

He thinks the shoe goo will get me through the season.

I'll switch to NTN then.

Re: Tele Boot Repair

Yeah... I'm trying to bite my tongue here, but I'm lacking self-control.

I'm not a huge customer, but I think I'm done with 22D.  I've heard the response you got many, many times.  And yeah, yeah, I understand their position of trying to stay in business, but frankly, that's shitty customer service.  Many people had their boots ruined the first day skiing those bindings, and got the same answer you did, and in some accounts I read, 22D tried to blame it on someone mounting the flex plate on the top of the binding wrong.  That's obviously not the case.

So all you 22D fanbois, flame away.  But based on that, I wouldn't buy jack from them, even if they make the best NTN bindings or whatever.  I'll stick with Voile for 75mm shit.

Re: Tele Boot Repair

I'm not sure I'm a fanboy, I just bought the binding MC told me to, and I really liked the way it skis.  I kind of never really heard of them before that, except I knew what a Rainey Super Loop was.

Now my expensive boots are trashed. I guess I should be more pissed.  I mean I am pissed but somehow not at the guy I talked to.

One thing for sure, you'll never be North Face if you don't stand behind your gear.

Re: Tele Boot Repair

It is a flawed system that still manages to work in spite of itself. Sort of. You have a stiff, modern plastic ski boot with a binding norm invented in 1927, some anachronistic pin holes and a rubber sole from a hiking boot going in to fairly sophisticated contraption made of metal and plastic. What could go right?

Re: Tele Boot Repair

No apathy.  I just have little tolerance for companies who don't stand behind what they put out.  That's kind of a responsibility of putting out a product in my consumer experience.

But if we are talking about Tele, we expect it to fail, right?

This Shoe Goo looks like the real deal. Feels pretty strong.

Just put the second coat on.

Re: Tele Boot Repair

I always keep a tube if shoe goo around. Great stuff - I wouldn’t be surprised if they discovered it cures cancer
