Brett,
The tongues helped out a lot. For now, I just slip them in under the boot laces and they stiffen it up juust enough. When I can find some thermo liners in my size, I'll probably just rivet them onto those. I'm riding Sportiva Nuptses.. Great boot, fits well. My only real complaint is my giant feet.. Lotsa toe drag, as that size PMB is quite a bit longer than the equivelant snowboard boot. They definitly hike better than any of the other options, though. I'll post some pics to this thread when I get a camera.. (soon I hope)...

-C

As anyone given the Catek bindings consideration for a good Frankensteining. They have all the parts just lying around waiting for an enterprising soul. I know they have that center mount thing going on but that sounds easier to work around than bending metal.

thanks stefan. it's been fun work'n on it. it tours really great. the lateral stiffness seems to be about right which helps on the traverse and skinning in general while not compromising the soft boot feel when riding. i also think that the fact that the rand of the boot is held down so tight to the plate is another contributing factor. this introduces less slop than a strap binding and leaves you w/ a more solid feeling connection when in ski mode. your foot of coarse still rolls a bit in the boot but it just translates a bit better in ski mode. still could use some improvements on the downhill side of things though. at this point some of that is a boot issue. it would have been nice to use a quicker adjusting forward lean highback though. that'll have to wait for the next version.

Brett, You've given me some great ideas! I have Koflachs as well and use the Mtn Plate bindings... Thanks for sharing.
