bindings newb needs help
i'm pretty much a tech newb so forgive me if this seems ridiculous to most of you guys but i guess we all start out somewhere. kinda of embarassed asking this stuff . anywho, so... i got the marker ibx 12.0 bindings with the k2 recons. they mount on a slide so no drilling required. thank god. my boot sole length is 344. i'm 6'3" 200lb and ski hard (level III+). Always used a shop but my lack of funds and desire for info is forcing me expand my know-how. i basically wanted to know if any one could give me some steps (other than "step 1: go to ski shop and get help!") to getting my bindings set correctly. i'd really like to know more about what's going on, techniquely speaking, with my skis and bindings. thanks for the help.Work is the curse of the drinking classes.

1 Slide the toe piece on the rail. (it slides on from behind) Keep sliding until the farthest point back on the toe piece is on the line that is would include 344 between the numbers.
2 Check to make sure that your toe piece holes are lined up with the correct smaller holes on the plate. use a screw driver (NOT A DRILL) and screw the binding down until the screw is down as far as it can go without stripping it. It would be very tough to strip so make sure its really tight.
3 Slide the toe piece on from the front. (I think) Slide it back till the furthest point forward is on the corresponding line. (this line should have different numbers than the front line. Again check the holes are lined up correctly and screw into place.
4. Take the boot and set it in the binding. CHeck the forward pressure. (bottom screw in back of the binding housing) screw shoud have a line a few millimeters into it. This line needs to be flush with the back of the housing.
5. Set dins.
6. Might be a good idea to just swing by a cool shop and have them take a look at it to make sure you didnt mess up. They shouldn't charge you.
7. Enjoy the Recon. Its an extremely fun and slightly underrated ski.
hope this makes sense, if you have any questions PLEASE ask before screwing up. I've learned that lesson the hard way.www.skithebeav.com
