Default is my board set up correctly?

I'm still fine tuning my setup but wanted to see if I'm on the right track. Does this look alright?



Also when mounting the bindings, does it matter which way the discs are positioned, as in horizontal or vertical?

horizontal to give your stance width adjustment.

not sure what vertical would be good for?

Position the plates veritcal for toe/heel adjustment, position horizontal for width adjustment.

I would have the toes moved slightly forward.

Agreed. My buddy told me to test his board out because he was having trouble (I'm not that good, but he was just riding for his third time) and when I buckled up, my boot was about an inch from the toe side of the board! Took a lot of pressure to even go toeside. I find that if you're going to be unbalanced, its easier to be biased on the toe over hang than heel overhang. Slightly. Best to be mostly event.

If your heel and toe ramps (gas pedal) are adjustable, I'd move them out a bit. You want the ramps to be just under the contact points of your boot. Keep in mind that I'm talking about contact point in terms of when you lean into your turns, not when the boot is just sitting on your binding.

Also, your highbacks can have a little more forward lean on them to match the lean of your boot.

I don't really bother with this step, but a lot of people swear by aligning their highback with the heel edge. You can try the same. I think I will try it next time out.

Leo, can you please explain this statement in detail:

aligning their highback with the heel edge

if i think you are saying what i think it you mean, do all bindings even have that capability?

I wouldn't say all bindings. Most that I've run into have the adjustment. The part where the highback attaches to the heel cup will have a set of holes. You can utilize these holes (that's what she said) to rotate your highbacks in order to align it with your heel edge.

Look at this picture:



Do you see where my highback attaches to the heel cup? Look next to the screw, you can see holes on either side. I could move the screw to either hole to rotate my highback. The inside of the heelcup has the same holes that you can utilize.

yah, that's pretty much what i thought you meant. i did it once before but didn't really notice too much difference (probably a comfort thing) so i never bothered with the other bindings. kinda similar to comfort for bindings w/ cantbed for those w/ wide stance

btw, forgot to tell the OP that those are nice salomon f20 boots.
