Just got some new BD Seracs, but to get a perfect fit I would like to stretch the front posts a bit to allow the boot to sit lower. They are the clips withe the plastic loop at the front. It's attached on the inside of the posts, so I guess drilling the river off and reattaching on the outside is another option. Any ideas?
Thanks

In reply to droites:
I think they used to be attached the other way around but BD changed it to stop them getting worn down too quick.

If you lengthen the bar a notch is it too loose?

I find the fit tends to slacken off a bit after a few uses anyway - (probably down to wear on the boot)

In reply to CurlyStevo: I yhought thy used to be the other way around. Yeah, they're to long then. New boots ( hence new poons )as the old air techs where so worn there was barely 1cm front point protruding!! So hopefully after a bit of use the front will settle.
