      Enjoy! The Revolts are great boards.
      RVL8 Condors - The Flex will be with me, always...until I break them

      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"

        I'm excited! Just waiting for the Risers to arrive, then first attempt at installation!

        Already have some good messages and material to use as reference!

            Definitely will do.

            I'm curious as to whether some shops will help adjust the bindings based on the ski boots they sell. Especially since they're on a riser, it might be a bit different. Just curious as to how difficult it will be to adjust the bindings that are currently installed!

              I suspect the shops may not be interested in adjusting the bindings. It is relatively straight forward and the instructions can be found here: http://www.skiboardsonline.com/forum...ead.php?t=9258

              If you run into any issues, post a picture and I am sure someone will be able to help out.

                It's fairly easy with a little research to adjust your own bindings for DIN and forward pressure by following the charts. What the shop does, that you probably can't, is actually measure the release forces. The Din on the scale on your bindings may not match the actual DIN when your bindings release, especially on older or used equipment.

                I had the shop do ours once, just to check the accuracy of scale. Now I do it myself.
                Just these, nothing else !

                  I'm still shopping for a nice pair of skiboots. Once I find them, I'll be asking for more help!

                  I suppose it's easier to mess around with the bindings on the riser when the package isn't attached to the skiboard =P (Kinda want to see what it looks like together! )

                    Anyone see anything there that looks highly recommended? I'm thinking the Drop Kick ones look good!! But probably don't match the bindings/board well.

                    Thoughts?

                    Or any other type of company? (I'm still searching for places to buy up here in Toronto! Especially with no power!)

                          After much agony, I've finally fixed up the binding positions and screwed them onto the board. my hand hurts. the guy before did a great job! HAHA!

                          Will post pics of my setup later. Taking them out tomorrow! SO EXCITED!

                              I don't see any screws in the rear binding holes?

                                Ah! That was an earlier picture that I took to show David and left the screws out in case I needed to adjust again.

                                (But I settled on it now and they're fully done up!)

                                So excited! It's snowing right now and we're hitting the slopes at 9 am tomorrow!
