    Weird - at 56mm for those Lynx, I presume they would behave the same as my Lynx - ie would not be that effective in locking the boot in properly? Unless my TX Pro's have a non-standard width, but that seems unlikely. Skifree I presume that width was based on one single click in?

    I have also heard back from 22 designs - their comment was "We have seen that problem before. It usually is caused by too much friction in the pivot where the front lever attaches to the base. Unfortunately it is really hard to get that pin out".

    Not sure on why there is too much friction!?! I may WD40 the carp out of it and see how that goes.

    I'm only aware of one click to engage. The tour lock is not meant to adjust the pin dimensions but simply put in place a mechanical stop to the overcentre cam movement (which is the release mechanism) when put under pressure that is more than the springs can restrain.

    If the boot inside cone to inside cone is 58 it should not be an issue, it means there is 2mm compression of each set of springs which is holding you in. My own Meidjo's measured out at ~56 and they work OK.

    Telemark Pyrenees have said it is "impossible to adjust" anything in the front pins on the Meidjo, the design of the tech pin set ups are all pretty much the same, so I'd be surprised if any can be adjusted. So the only current solution (I'd love to be corrected) to a problem is a replacement of the whole tech toe part.


    Can you remind me what your issue / problem is?

    On clicking in, the pins do not hold my boot in. Much lateral slop. And then locking the lever actually brings the pins in more, which as you said, is not what is supposed to happen.

    Its a minor whinge, i still love the lynx, just wanted to see if i could fix the issue

    Based on your current advice it's replacement jobbie, better act while you have some warrantee.

    Sounds like the cams are too short by a bees dick, but this is only a guess.

    Ah good, unlikely to be operator error then!
