Thanks Chub. To add to this topic, would you guys be able to recommend good bindings? I currently have the K2 Auto-Uprise and don't like them at all. On my left foot, front foot, the toe strap keeps falling off as I was riding down the hill. I've tried tightening them but still have no luck in keeping the strap on my boot. The guy at the store recommended the Ride Maestro.
