After almost two years of use, I took the inner pads out of the knee area (the ones right by the hinge area) and noticed that the cables that run inside the hinges were fraying. I will be at Dirtweek--Billy, will you have the parts to fix them or will I need a new set? Also, I remember some threads about "updating" the first model of braces to the new improvements--is that something you can do at the same time?

Let me know, as I'm really happy with the braces and need them now more than ever.

Awesome, thank you. Are they easy to put in? Is this a normal wear item?

What are the updates that were talked about a while ago?

It takes maybe 20 minutes to do all 4 cables. These are at least one of the revised parts. Put them in Erics braces back at the beginning of the season and no sign of breaking- he was going thru at least 3 sets of steel cables a season

oldguy....... I got the "updates" on the cables and installed them from the factory. Ran a few times with them. Just noticed yesterday that we be frayin' again!!!!!

Any sugestions.......... I purchased these probably from the first few runs when they first came out. Don't know if that matters.

Thanks.
