Would you be interested in trading for a 01 Rossi world cup 184???
December 6th, 2003, 12:37 PM
Thanks for the feedback.
I appreciate the offer to swap, and the kind words about the listing, but I'd prefer to sell the boots rather than trade for product.
The boots are in excellent shape, and ride even better than they look!
Please let me know if you have any other questions.

What size shoe do you normally wear - I'm in boulder and would be interested in seeing them if it is a right fit for me
December 6th, 2003, 02:43 PM
I rode Raichle Olympics MP 30 the last few seasons, street shoe size 13, athletic shoe 12.5, soft boot size 12.
You're welcome to check 'em out. The snow at Vail is very good and worth a trip from Boulder. Let me know.

When you say they don't fit, are they to large small or just not comfortable?
And , was up on opening day - had a great time - still needs a bit of a base though -
December 6th, 2003, 08:06 PM
I guess my questions are in regard to width/ stiffness ,and if they will work with the trench digger 2 step ins ,and the sole length. And also why you went with the raicle and what size?
December 6th, 2003, 08:27 PM
Thanks for your interest in the boots.
The boots have a shell size 29.5-31.0. Liner size is 31.0. Sole length is 13.5 inches. They are a bit too big for me as I prefer an extra-snug fit for enhanced energy transmission. This season I'm squeezing my MP 30.0 feet into a Raichle Indy MP 29.0. It's a very snug fit, and I don't yet have 'em dialed--I can only ride for a half day before I have to limp off the slopes, but I'm hoping that I can custom-fit the T-Flex to accomodate my big dogs in a small shell.
The Fire is/was Burton's most supportive alpine boot, and with an additional heel piece (available from Burton? klugriding.com? Bomberonline?) will work with the Burton physics system (which I believe is compatible with the Intec or TD-2 SI system). I rode Burton product for many years and they've worked well for me.
I would ride these, too, if only they fit.

Bear with me as these are my first snowboard specific boots- How much more forward lean do these boots have than ski boots/and other than the 1/2" shorter sole- are there any advantages to this type of boot? also are those t-flex liners?
December 6th, 2003, 10:17 PM
If you've been riding in ski boots, I think you'll be stoked to jump into a pair of snowboard-specific boots. In addition to the shorter sole length, you'll find them much softer forward flexing, which allows you to better use your legs like shock absorbers as you ride. It'll still provide lots of support for lateral edging moves.
The Forward Lean is completely adjustable and features three "quick set" positions (another advantage over a ski boot). The forward flex of the cuff is also adjustable using this nut-and-spring mechanism. You can immediately make a tool-free adjustment on-the-fly (I generally will dial up FL when I want to crank arcs and back it off when venturing off piste).
To adjust forward lean, simply flip up the foward lean adjust lever on the back of the boot, bend your knee out over your toes, and flip the adjustment mechanism back down. The amount you push your knee out will determine the amount of FL on the cuff.
To release from a set FL position, flip the lever up again and straighten your leg. This is also called "walk" or "relax" mode, and is very useful for walking around the base area. I also like it for riding in powder.
The liners are stock Burton liners. Of course, if you are looking for a custom fit, you could replace them with T-Flex or other custom liner.

Would you take say $200? How would the monetary exchange be handled?
December 6th, 2003, 11:07 PM
Thanks for the offer. I'm asking $225 plus shipping. I think if you check around, you'll find them to be very fairly priced. "New" Fire boots on klugriding.com (http://www.klugriding.com) run $300 plus shipping and other new boots far more than that). These boots are as-new and are a great buy. You'll be stoked and will enjoy many years of high performance riding in them!
If you are interested, we can work out payment through Paypal or money order. Simply email me for details and you'll be blasting arcs in short order!
December 6th, 2003, 11:36 PM
what if they dont fit? would we be able to work something out ? Also how do we go about paypal? Also- I just saw that the trench digger 2 accomodates up to a 30 boot-am I going to be able to run these bindings?
December 7th, 2003, 09:30 AM
Hi Big Zeb,
As the shell size is 29.5-31.0, the boot should work with the TD-2, but to make absolutely certain, I'll bring 'em over to Bomber to check on Monday. That'll make sure they fit the binding.
As for them fitting your feet, we should first make sure that you are Sized 31.0. Check the chart (http://skiing.about.com/library/weekly/bl-ski-boot-sizing.htm) to make sure that a 31.0 boot would be likely to fit you. If it's the correct shell size, it should fit, but you may still want to work with a skilled bootfitter to get a custom fit to achieve the highest levels of performance.
And, if your size 31.0 feet still do not fit in the boot. you can return 'em and pay only the shipping. But I think they'll fit.
Paypal (http://www.paypal.com/) is an easy and secure way to make cash payments over the web. I've never had any problems using it for buying or selling items online. Apparently, some have (http://www.paypalsucks.com/). If you'd feel more comforatble using a money order, that'd be great, too.
I'll check on the binding question Monday and will get back with you then.
December 7th, 2003, 10:12 PM
Will take boots at asking price so long as the shell size is 29.5 to 31. Let me know how you want to proceed. Thanks.

Booster two - I am still interested and awaiting your reply regarding compatibility
December 10th, 2003, 12:19 PM
Hi Big Zeb,
I'm waiting for a reply from Fin at Bomber (I couldn't get over to Summit County until tomorrow). I'll let you know tomorrow at the latest.
Sorry about the delay; thanks for your patience.
December 14th, 2003, 08:32 AM
could you give me a heads up if the boots are still for sale
December 14th, 2003, 10:15 PM
According to Fin, the TD2 should work fine with a 342mm sole length.
I recently double-checked the shell size to make absolutely certain that the size was as I had indicated, and I saw something curious that any interested rider would need to know about.
The shell size is 29.5-31.0--for the cuff (the size, stamped on the upper cuff, is what I indicated in an earlier post). I then noticed two other shell size stamps on both the tongue and lower boot. The stamp on the tongue indicates 29.5-31.0--the same as the cuff. The stamp on the lower boot (the part holding your foot) indicates 30.5 to 31.0. Apparently, Burton used parts that could cover a larger range of sizes on their upper boot.
Thus, the boots are a good bet to fit your feet if they are 30.5-31.0. Hope this clears up any confusion.
And yes, they are still available.
December 14th, 2003, 11:18 PM
if they are still available, I would like to get in touch with you about these boots. I am very intersted, and very motivated to buy.
