Hmm... the strap lengths look ok in that size, but the length of the baseplate still looks too short. Strange.
I'd still go with the large. That way you still get the same length options for the straps but you get a longer baseplate.

That might be the winning ticket right there. I'm thinking that a maxed out medium basically will equal a large at its smallest setting. Thus giving me the baseplate I need under my toe.

With everyone not positive this is the best option I'm gonna take them in attached to the board and see what the shop says.

I wanted this to work out so I could be done with the whole process. This is my 3rd year riding but first year I've purchased the whole set up. Been a lot of long nights deciding on what i wanted to buy. Boots, board, bindings, pants, jacket, helmet, and goggles.

Almost there though. Going to Winter Park, CO in 35 days.

I would just remove them, take them in, and tell them they're too small. If they see you've already mounted them, they'll be likely to just SAY "yeah, don't worry- they look fine!"

Winter Park, you say? Are they open? I went there for spring break. Tell ya, the Mary Jane was a real frozen bitch while I was there!

Thankfully they are starting to get snow there now. I check their weather report at onthesnow.com everyday lol. Getting antsy. Will be my first time out west. When did you go to WP. I heard last year was just brutal anywhere you went.

Sidenote. The shop I got my bindings from is different from where I got my board and boots. Might take it into the place I got my board and see what they say. I do most of my business with them (me, my gf, and two buddies have all bought boards and boots through them, with most of them getting bindings there) just came across these bindings at a great price at shred shop when up on the northside of chicago. I live in the south suburbs.

I'm on the side of take the whole set up in and see if the shop guy sees anything off about the binding adjustment.

Not only that in this pic you have like 3 clicks on the ladder strap. Also in this pic the toe ramp is pulled out but hard to tell from the pic if it is all the way out

Yeah, the weather conditions there over spring break in April were nasty, but mostly on the 1st out of the 4 days we were riding there. That day was cold, dark, and literally frozen solid everywhere. 2nd day was nice because, surprisingly (for that time of year), we had a mild pow day. Last 2 days were so warm we rode in out shirts. The slush made for good park conditions, though.

So, because of weather fluctuations we got a bit of every condition. By the time we left the whole place was completely melting. One of my friends went over spring break the year before and said it was powder everywhere.

Not going on that trip again next year! Have fun while you're there- it should be a lot better for you around this time of year!

That pic is when I had first started the process. The straps were not adjusted properly. The most recent pics where the boots are on the board is with the straps adjusted. I did extend the toe ramp as far as it would go. There are 3 positions for the cushioned toe ramp to snap into the heel cushion. I have it in the last position.

Def look to small, try to return em. And IMO, even though I love those bindings, If i were you (with forum) being discontinued, I might go with a different binding.

The "good vibes" bed has a tendency to pop out with temp changes. Good luck trying to get a replacement once Forum is no more. I had difficulty, even when they were thriving
