After having had the front yellow gsb part break on me the other week, I'm now having thoughts on changing my set up.
Would it be possible to turn these airtec gsb into c1 walking crampons by removing the rear clips and front gsb parts and adding the plastic basket things on?
Are these parts readily available and would it be an easy job to swap over? I do have some spare gsb attachments to put on but don't want this happening again.
due to the short points feel these would be ideal as walking crampons for my b1 boots.

I'm going to opt for something with abit more heavy duty front points I think for my b3s.

In reply to Flat4matt: It is dead easy to convert GSB to a Cramp-o-matic binding (Needlesports sell replacement front bales), but it is NOT possible to convert them to a Newmatic or New Classic as the front sections are completely different.

Just check out some of the images on the Grivel website - http://www.grivelgb.co.uk/products/crampons/air-tech/
