Flow NXT AT & Gnu Riders Choice

For some reason, it doesn't look like the flow "combi-disc" fits the holes on my Gnu Riders Choice board. Anyone have any input on this? If I was sold bindings that don't fit on my board I am going to crack some skulls.

ahh good post. i purchased a gnu carbon credit btx and the original bindings i had paired with them were the same model as yours. i returned them for some flux feedbacks.

when i had originally mounted the nxt-at onto my deck, the holes didn't properly match up to the drilled holes on the board. i thought that perhaps this was just an issue with my board, or maybe the discs for the flows were slightly off, but it happened to be the case for both binders. i was able to put in three screws, but the hole on the disc wouldn't properly align with the fourth screwhole. the best i could do was to screw it in at an angle, which i didn't do all the way in order to save the threading.

hope that helps.

Hmm interesting...so it sounds like the GNU bolt pattern is off on both your boards? I have a Lib Tech and my wife just got a GNU Carbon Credit and our Rome bindings lined up just fine.

my flux feedbacks fit perfectly, i had no issues mounting them. perhaps this was a manufacturer's problem with the disc?

not rome

@reply1: thanks, i am emailing flow as we speak. see what they have to say. but yea i am not risking the 4th screw.

@reply2: well lib-tech and gnu may have different hole patterns on the board (although both are made by mervin). And I am pretty sure flow bindings are probably much different than rome bindings (unless they are also made by the same manufacturer--like mervin makes both lib-tech and gnu).

And my board isnt messed up because the drill patterns are legit. so it is a straight compatibility issue...

This should be a fun little situation to resolve...sarcasm.

Thanks for the feedback...much appreciated though.

well, seeing as i'm the same guy that did post#2 and post#4.. i was just saying that I had a problem with the NXT-AT on my Gnu board, and i replaced them with a Flux Feedback, and the Flux Feedback had no problem fitting.

which means that there's no problem with the hole pattern on the board

I missread NoTickets post, I thought he means his bindings didn't fit properly (3 bolts did but the 4 didn't was how I took it)...that is why I thought it might be a Mervin/GNU issue. The 4 bolt pattern is an industry standard, the Flow bindings are made to fit it (unless you got a 3 hole disc for some reason) so they should line right up. I would have contacted Flow about this issue if I wanted their bindings.

^^^^ Have to agree. Sounds like user error. It's not exactly a mind-bending puzzle to get the four to line up.
