/ Cable bindings, who sells them?
NB These are not NN 75mm type boots
Braemar Mountain Sports. If not, they'll tell you who does. They're very helpful.
Tried them already; I don't think they know what cable bindings are!
Try Rob or Dave at Mountain Spirit in Aviemore.
That seems odd as they sell them!
Really? they look like standard 75mm duckbills in that link. If so, and you're after something equivalent to the discontinued Rottefella Riva, I think the cheapest and lightest option now is the Voile 3pin/cable binding, available from the Canadian Mt Coop or Telemark Pyrenees.
I guess what your after is an old school telemark bingings where they either have 75mm three pin front clamp binding or a sprung cable.
Rotefella used to make a wide range of bindings that would do this but the latest versions have too strong(rigid) a cable and are designed for plastic tele boots. I have pair of Rainey Super Loops which have been on my touring skis for about ten years now with no problems and have used them with leather boots in the past. If you trawl ebay and other secondhand places you might be able to find some.
This might give you some ideas:

There is a 75mm version (Husky 75) but my boots are the 89mm version (Husky Ski) They look similar but the toe on my version is shorter and wider.
Thanks for the info and links. I have now ordered a set of bindings and straps from Finland.
