Related question..sorta. I just got a pair of Blaze LT binders, and they came with two sets of pins. One aluminium and the other feels like steel.

Isn't it as simple as using the steel ones as spares, or am I missing something here...

yep, you got it. no problem using steel Spark pins in the LT bracket. what you don't really want to do is use the aluminum pins in a voile touring bracket.

i think the OP's problem was not having that spare steel pin, and given the dimensions of the Spark baseplate the old Voile pins don't fit (probably too short)...

Mine were LTs and only come with the aluminium pins unfortunately. Those LT pins are too hard and brittle, they would be much better off being softer with a little bit of flex in them rather than snapping instantly as soon as any side load is placed on them.
I have been contacted by a spark rep in Hakuba but I have the situation under control now.
