Short boards are fun, and with the little snow we have had in Tahoe, I needed to make a shorter split for the mixed conditions Iv been finding. I'v had around 5 days on this board so far and like Mcdonalds "Im luvin it"

Its a burton so ya you gotta cut through the middle inserts, but hey finding the middle is as easy as eyeballin the insert

:scratch: Never thought this would happen but splitboarding has turned me into a cross country skiier :lol:

Did you DIY that bike also? looks fun aside from the taint nudging seat angle. I like the old cranks and custom fenders?

yeah Huck! Im all about restoring garage sale bikes, Right now I got way too many at my place. I live practically on the bike path so riding a bike anywhere in south lake on nice days is the only way to go.

Here is my burton splitty from the start of last nights full moon split mission!

Nice work! If you have spare bikes one should be set up for snow riding. Wicked fun! Home made studded tires with sheet metal screws rock.

That's it. As soon as those Edison bindings come out, I'm doin' a DIY split on my Rossi Mini. 121 centimeters of tree swerving, narrow chute rocking, and corn snow eating goodness.
Anyone know if you can get aftermarket binding inserts? I wanna move my rear foot back an inch.
