    WTB: AT/Dynafit setup for the GF

    - Her alpine boots are 24/24.5 with about 1" on the shell fit so she could go smaller. Probably needs 100-110 flex.

    - Looking for 160cm skis but 165s for the right price. Minimum 105 underfoot.

    - Dynafit for sure. Not fucking around with heavy ass frame bindings.

    This setup will mostly just be around some fitness and meadowskipping, but also want her to not wallow in pow. Her alpine setup is so skinny and that will have to be overhauled as well.

    She loves the uphill on MTB and loves XC skiing so hope this translates well for her.

    It was her idea. She's lived in Montana for 20 years. She is into grueling MTB rides etc etc. I'm not trying to convert some complete JONG. Been there done that it never works.

    If you don't find the droid you're looking for I'm going to be selling the GF's 166cm Wailer 99 w/ kingpin setup pretty soon.

    Good to know. You have a ballpark price on those? Might be a touch long though.

    Cool, PM me pics when you get a chance. If I can squeeze in a 3rd mount that would be great.

    No. Will be putting on some type of releasable Dynafit.

    I believe those are the same skis as my old K2 Annex 108??? Fun skis.

    Ok so you could line up the plates to see if another mount would be possible? Kinda don't want her on anything drilled 3x though.

    Also for the masses: How could she have 1" of space behind heel on a 24 boot shell and then 0 space on a 23 boot? 23.5 boots we just got in the mail crazy too small.

    We don't know BSL yet because we haven't gotten boots yet that work. Her alpine boots are Head and maybe their shells run huge or something compared to everyone else?
