Please help me to set my new TRICE

Hi guys,

with less of a month ahead to the start of the season here, I'm setting my new gear. I grab a 2012 TRICE 157 and a pair of mutants from eBay and since I came from a burton clash 158 and a pair of customs it's going to be a huge change. Got enough for this year with the R Camber and Trying to stay away from other changes.

-Used to ride -6 +18 with the clash' default stance width that's suits fine for me(58cm) I’m 173 and 87kg. So no problem with this on my new board, so far so god.
-Now, the burton clash has a little of setback on the default stance. Should I maintain this? Would be ok in a hybrid board with c2btx or should I stay twin???
-But the worst is that I detuned the tip & tail of my clash and set -1 blevel and -1 edge angles to be less catchy. Should I mess with this in a $500 board???

Want the board for all, kick my friends ass on the park, enjoy powder days and not fall when gets icy

I'll appreciate your input, thanks!

Detune the tip and tail but I wouldn't bevel the edges until you see how you like the current edge bite. If you are riding park or cruising groomers then mount yourself centered. For powder or big mountain riding try moving back one set of holes. Give it a good hand wax and ride it.

The TRice is a true twin so I say keep the bindings centered. I think the board rides better that way.

I ride the TRice and have had it both centered and set back and it definitely feels better centered to me.

although it is considered an all mountain board and can absolutely be used for park I refuse to purposely fuck up my base by riding rails or boxes when i used a good chunk of money to purchase it

so: I advise having a somewhat* decent park board with beveled edges rather than making your lib tech the glutton for punishment.

*My park board is beat to shit

Yes, that will be difficult with the edge not going all the way around...
