    FS: FKS 185s, skinny brakes

    Each heel has a cracked bushing between the adjustment arm and the heel housing. Skis fine but some play in the arm when your boot isn't in the binding.

    I had these on 98mm-waisted skis, and they worked. Replaced with FKS 155/Pivot 14 because I ran them near the bottom of the DIN range and didn't want to tear my leg off. Missing one binding screw for now, but I have a bag of screws to dig through and could probably find something that works.

    [edit] $75 plus shipping? Located in North Seattle.

    These are back on the market! Would love to trade, possibly with cash on my end, for Pivot 14s or 15s/FKS 140-155, especially with wide brakes.

    As river59 pointed out, one metal bushing between the adjustment arm and the heel lever is cracked on each heel piece. This means there is some play in the heel when the boot is not in the binding, and it is harder to adjust the arm when the boot is in the binding. Maybe some grease would fix the latter problem. If I can't get a deal on a lower-din binding that will go on Dynalook plates by the time lifts start spinning, I will probably just bend the brakes and continue skiing them at minimum DIN = 8.

    I don't really need any more bindings right now, sorry.
