    I'm 1cm back on 182s mounted Tele and feel too far back. I normally mount on the line and wish I'd done so with the gpo.

    If doing lift assisted touring I'd probably be prepared to haul a little more weight than the blizzards for better performance on the downhill. bentchetler 100, line sickday 104, mantra vwerks?

    The Bmt 90 would certainly be appealing from a weight perspective. 170 MVW is 1530, 177 Bmt90 is 1400, 170 Bmt90 is 1330.
