I'm sure this question has been asked before. I'm new to the Catek forum(s). I did a quick search of the subject and couldn't find an answer to my query. Can I start the day riding plates (Olympics) and as the day gets warmer and softer switch my setup to the Freerides using the same discs. This would be great on an AM or BX deck.

Thanks,

Mark

Short Answer = Yes

Longer Answer = Yes, as long as your Olympics are the newer style (2003-on) with the 10mm Kingpin. If you have the 1st gen. Olympics with the 12mm Kingpin it's not happening.

I don't have any Catek bindings. I'm interested in the ability to switch between the two binding styles from time to time as conditions change on the hill (and still ride the same board).

The short answer applies -- yep, no problem.

Current OS and FR bindings can share discs.

You can use the old style disc, but you have to purchase the conversion
kit for the kingpin. It converts the 12mm kingpin to a 10mm one. It's
available for around $20 here on this web site.
