I've got two seasons logged on my 01s and I love them. I do have the rid stiff cartridges and since mounting them on prophet 130's I have not had any tip dive issues. I would have some issues on my 100's.

As for the pivot it makes a huge difference in speed and exertion for climbing trails on skins. If you don't plan on skinning then no point in having these.

Mut, how much do you want for yours?

I would like a fair price. I have no idea what that is. I can't even remeber what I paid for them. I think they are 02's with the heavier spring. They have a green button to switch to the mobile mode. They are in perfect shape.

What is a fair price for a used pair?

parts compatability

Niwot, one thing to keep in mind is that several of your old G3 parts will work with the Targa Ascent binding, but if you go with the O1 (which seems to be a great binding) you might have to fork out some extra $ for a backcountry kit...

I have them and really like them. Easy to click in and out of hike mode. Freezes a bit sometimes but not bad. The hike mode is unbelievably easier on you with the free pivot. I personally like an active binding and think the opposite of Geezer. A more active binding keeps you upright and feels super quick. If you weight your back foot they are fine. I feel like a low tele stance would want a less active binding as that style uses the back leg as more of a rutter. Anyway they are great but to each their own. Telemarktips.com has some discussions
