Rides' terrible customer service.
 
just read my email below.


You should try tightening your hardware before you go ride. This will solve the loosening/swiveling problem.

Thank You
Dan @ Ride

I purchased a Ride Kink and a pair of Rodeos about a month ago from Evo.com. I've only ridden it twice, and every 3-4 runs my right baseplate would get loose and my binding would swivel around. The left binding isn't as bad, but still does shift a bit. Please help me fix this problem.


like "oh so you mean to say the screws need to be tightened before I ride it?...are you sure?...cus im pretty sure ur supposed to just put sticky notes underneath to secure the binding:icon_scratch:"....ya no sh*t Horatio Caine i tightened it!

Weird I've never had an issue with K2 support in fact they have sent me new parts multiple times for free.

How on earth are your bindings plates coming loose every 3-4 times out I've never heard of such a thing.......do you have bad screws or something?

Try the blue locktite I guess?

ive had this problem alot... especially with k2's. i dont know why. ( i suspected their weird ribbed washers)

are the screws coming loose? or is it that the teeth on the discs are stripped?

either loctite (just a drop) or new discs.

Maybe you should tighten your bindings sounds like they're loose because you're weak in the wrist.

Get a better screwdriver and tighten the hell out of them. Sounds overly simple, but if they aren't tight enough they'll loosen right away.

In the defense of the Ride CS, he's probably dealing with people who can't figure out how to get the bindings out of the box.

I see no issue.

So you rode with a few screws loose (in every sense) and your bindings slipped. You asked CS and they told you to tighten the screws.

Unless there is some other symptom or some other information that you have not told us, the advice is completely correct and should fix the problem.

The only (very minor) complaint could be that the CS rep did not offer up any ideas over and above the basic answer (e.g., Loc-Tite) or ask any clarifying questions to check whether you left out any relevant information. But is a busy time of year and these guys get lots of silly questions like this, so cannot really blame him.

Also make sure you are using the right size screwdriver.... people tend to get lazy and use one that is smaller then the screws because it works. It will never get the screws as tight though.
