Recurring issue: Bent brakes
I've bent my brakes countless times.
It's getting to the point where it's starting to piss me off & I'm asking NS if there's any type of binding with a brake system that isn't so fragile.
Right now I'm have markers mounted on both pairs of my skis.
Brakes bend out of whack and drag at least once a week & I have to get them bent back into shape in shop every time.
It always happens in the park.
Suggestions? Or do I just suck at skiing & I should quit
Learn to bend them back yourself? It's always gonna happen if you pop put switch.
this happens probably 9 out of 10 times i fall, front or switch..my FKS bindings are always bend, just bend them back like every other person in this thread says.
There's lots of random tools and stuff you can find around the house to help bend them back too, makes life a little easier sometimes. Old broken hollow ski poles, spare bike handlebars, pipe wrenches with holes on the end, etc. No need to head all the way to the shop for them to do it
I usually do when it's not bad but sometimes they get super fucked & it's hard to get them to not drag with out pliers or something.
so use pliers or something
All times are Eastern (-5)
