How do you measure stance width?
 
Just curious how people measure their stance width.

I ask because I measure from centre of one binding to centre of the other binding.
However, when I bought a board last year, the shop offered to mount my bindings for me before I left. I told the guy 22.5 inches, and he mounted the bindings measured from the inside edge of each binding, meaning the stance was wider than I wanted.

I'm sure there is no "rule" on this, but I'm curious how most of you measure stance width.:confused:

Nothing else makes sense; this is the only way to measure that would not be affected by size/shape/orientation of the binding.

That's what I've always thought. No matter how you orient the binding, the centre is the constant and should be the basis of measure.

Whoa, that sounded too much like physics class!:eek: Sorry.

You measure C-C

Why don't you measure from the inside most bolts?

Why would you? Center to center is the only logical way to measure stance width.

C to C

Having trouble getting my head around how anyone could think otherwise and worse, we're discussing it. :dizzy:

But if you are measuring from the inside most bolts that also makes a lot of sense. just like how you measure a skateboards wheelbase.
