  • It's Back: Bishop 2.0

    http://www.bishopbindings.com/shop/the-bishop-20

    The new 2.0 looks lighter. They're claming 4lbs for the regular version and 3.7 lbs for a Titanium(!) version.

    With power comes price: $495 and $695 (Ti).
    Drive the cuff!

    Doesn't look like they will sell at those price points. Too bad...it's a great product, though heavy.

    I'd be willing to pay, at most, about $300 to $350.

        Pretty Neat. Gotta agree with the fine folks here... don't think 500 bucks is exactly worth it. Might edge better, but I just can't see myself doing it at 4lbs and 100 bucks a swap kit.

          Looks like a work of industrial art. But no step in, no release, no touring mode and pricey? 10 years ago I would have be all over it. Now...think I'll pass.

            I agree. They look awesome. But too many $$$ and I gave away my duckbill boots a couple years ago.

              Imagine the price if or when these features are added.

                What's different from before? The blog mentions durability enhancements. Thazit? Lower weight?

                  I suggest you try 'em before you reject them. But I agree that the price presents a bit of an impediment. Otherwise we'd all be driving Ferraris. Nevertheless they are a great binding and I tour in mine (older ones) without complaint.

                      $695 for a titanium binding. They must be trying to appeal to the road bike crossover market.

                        Bentgate was clearing the 2.0s out a couple of weeks ago for $350 and the extra plate kits were $65, so I bought the bindings and second mounting plates.

                        When the Bomber Bishop first came out years ago, I drooled over them, but gagged at the price. Now, being older and closer to the grave, I don't care about the price. Better late than never.

                          I seem to recall someone from Alberta (kevlar??) jimmy-ing the 1 gens. into a touring rig, where the springs weren't engaged when in tour mode.

                          Anyone recall this method and or person?
                          The heels may be free, but everything else costs.
