help calculating setback?

So Im trying to figure out the best way to fit my bindings on my new board.

There are default positions on the board for bindings, and at the default position the stance width is 22", and 20mm (.78in) setback.

Now I found that 22" stance width is too wide, and putting the bindings one hole towards the rear which gave me 21" width (I believe), how much setback would I have?

Im guessing it would be close to 1.25? How much would that affect my riding, if much at all?

I wouldn't worry about it. Just go with what you have changed it to. I can't see it making much difference.

the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

[geek voice] take the inverse derivative of pie and use the pythagorian theorum utilizing your weight height and body fat index then factor in the boards waist width and center of gravity and add the sum of all figures and divide by the square root of 51 and thats how much you should use [/geek voice]

dude, no calculating, just go ride it and see what you like...
