Just got in some used UPZ ATB boots. Unfortunately they don't fit the TD2 bindings I also just got in second hand. The way the heel of the UPZ ATB boots is designed, they don't readily fit into the rear bail. They can be coxed in, but the front bail does not clip into place. I'm thinking I may have gotten in the large sized TD2 bindings, too large for 26.5 mondo (or at least, UPZ 26.5 mondo).
Thoughts on how to proceed? Can I simply get a shorter front bail and a thinner rear bail or go the step-in route? Or am I simply going to have to go for a different binding route for these boots?
