That's one of the better buying-guides I've seen. One thing you might want to include are a few examples in the 'size' blurb on how people sometimes go out of their recommended range in the interest of preference. For example; my brother is 6'0", 200, and prefers to ride boards in the low 150cm range- the same length I prefer to ride at almost 30 pounds less.

My Size is very similar to you and I prefer all mountain as well. I ride a Bataleon "The Jam" in a 161 wide. I love it! I also got Ride NRc bindings are they're super comfy as well
