Sorry, digging this up...

I thought it was fine sizewise; if it wasn't, I would need to revolutionize my understanding of board sizing. So yeah, I measured the correct way, and I'm actually at 25.5 inches... ha. That's plenty for my height, but I remember my artifact being about an inch or so bigger... Maybe my memory serves me wrongly. Haha anyway thanks for the insight bro.

I could cram them out for an extra inch by putting the bolts right next to each other. I'm not sure if that makes sense- I can post pics when I have the chance if you want. And the 22 inches is measuring form inside to inside of the baseplate. Inside to inside of the binding's edge is even shorter, of course. And, for being 6', I don't think the board's that small on me; I had an artifact (156) set up with about a 24 inch stance, which I liked. If I were to pick up something like the Heritage, size-wise I'd probably go with a 158. I'm basing this off of height, weight, and shoe size. Does my size seem about right for the Evo? I've been riding that size a while and loved it. Spins, jibs, butters and flips.

Stance width is not measured from inside of the baseplate or the edge of the binding, it is mesured from the center of one disk to the center of the other. That makes your stance at least 23", possibly 24".

i used to ride long boards like that (had quite a few boards in the 170's)
but this year will be the shortest board i've ever owned, 158 bataleon whatever. just going to be waiting on my lil kids to catch up most of the time anyway- might as well have something that's easy to throw around.

i do remember a great couple of days riding a Sims 152 Noah Salasnek board

Ya I still laugh when people say its ONLY your weight that should dictate your board size....

But damn even if you were going with a super short park board you should be able to get at least 23" I would think. Especially since I have a 155 and I could go wider than 24" and my buddies 151 is at least 23"....
