Yeah you got to love those chrome hubs, Ive been drooling over them since they came out. I wish I could get one of my old tri-spokes to break so I would be forced to finally un-a$$ the ca$h.

Now if only those brakes were controlled remotely and with pressure sensitivity they would be the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

Would love to try your board out. I've really been dying to ride a board with snowboard bindings..

Hmm considering you probably want snowboard boots to ride it, I don't think you're gonna like it too much, with the weather you must be getting.

What about using a pair of childrens Flow bindings, Ive always wanted to try that but never wanted to throw down the dollars for something that might not work and would be completely un sellable in CR.

NO need for snowboard boots , i just use a regular pair of hi top hike boots / trainers .

There is no difference in performance .

However the full snowboard bindings give you unparalleled performance in a freeride setting . Much more responsive turn etc

No adjustment required , they are just ratchets , so just crank the ratchets down and go .

Well, KentATB, you obviously got yourself a good combination of high-top shoes and low-profile spoilers. Good for you !

However, people should know that it is not always the case, and like I said before, a spoiler eating at your leg on every heelside turn is NOT fun. That's why I mentionned snowboard boots.
