    yeah i don't think they would touch them if you took a pair in..if you buy them there then they would have to replace the brakes if they snapped one wouldn't they?
    Easy to snap them if they don't disassemble the heel (but disassembly method takes ages)..I would probably expect to pay $100 for the brake bending and mount

    You should be able to negotiate something with the $500 price tag (given that they are at least 2 years old..)

    A phonecall wouldn't hurt - i'd say they would be the most expensive alpine bindings they would have outside of jesters (and possibly PX race which i doubt they would stock)

    Also they wouldn't be sold too often as they are quite a specialised binding, so for them to sell some would certainly be a priority on their list.
    i.e They are more likely to hook you up on a mount on the 155s than if they were any other set of walk-out-the-door bindings

    they do actually stock px race... something about an affiliation with a race club...

    yeh the guy gave me a massive lecture on how they wouldn't even think about bending the brakes. he then went on to recommend some px12's. i think i'll start asking around at shops till i find someone willing to do it... hopefully i can get some cheap(er) off TGR

    Massssssive difference between PX12 and FKS155. Huge.
    The only problem with getting the PX 15 is that the DIN starts at 8..
    FKS155 is still probably the best light/strong/high DIN binding available IMO.
    If you have the equipment and have a vice, you could definitely try it yourself. There are some great p18 brake bending tutorials out there which are pretty straight forward.

    If you don't want to do the FKS bend yourself, Don't discount the Salomon STH16..plus you can easily get a widebrake for them.

    yehh i think i will have a crack, provided i can find a pair south of 300. i'm pretty set on the 155s at the moment to be honest.
