JJ said on their FB page they are shipping but should be expected in October. I have 2 solids (Flag/Hover) on order from the-house and they still say mid-Nov, but they admittedly just put a date in close to the season opener.

As long as they show by the time we get a good rideable base (late Nov) I'll be happy. Still have my Option and my ST split to ride if need be.

REI stores seem to be getting them in verrrrrry slowly- if you call theyll give you shipping schedules to the best of their knowledge. last i checked their website was still taking orders too. im staring at mine right now, karakorams n all.... :drool:

of course, snow would be nice. and not just for 3 days this time

I'm still showing Nov 15 ship date for my Flag/Hover, not that there's anything on the horizon yet to ride in Tahoe.

can any of you guys tell me if there's any setback options/what the min stance width is on your boards?

Would help lots. Thanks.

2012 solution 164 stance width measurements:

width: 19"-25.5"
setback: 2"

note: i did this with a tape measurer. for the widest stance i measured from the forward most mounting screw on the front foot to the 3rd screw from the back on the back foot (corresponding "front screws" on each binding if you mounted the widest possible stance). same idea for the narrowest possible stance. for the setback i compared the midpoint between the 2 innermost screws to the midpoint of the overall board length.

nose length (tip of the board to the first screw in the front): 20.5"
tail length (tail of the board to the last screw in the back): 16.5"

for those who want every conceivable detail:

the hinge point on the touring brackets is exactly dead center on the length of the board, as i assume it always should be

nose width: ~11.5"
waist width: ~9.75"
tail width: ~11.4"

keep in mind i was using a tape measurer. i realize these numbers probably dont match the factory specs perfectly

for europeans and people who prefer a superior system of measurements, please see "your favorite unit converter"

having said all that, please commence ranting and raving


p.s. thickness of perfect stack of $1 bills required to buy the board before tax: 3.4357". however if youre paying for it in $1 bills youre probably a stripper, and the added thickness created by body lotion, sweat, self loathing and the lack of a fatherly figure in your life would equal ~9.7"

This reply was both far more thorough and entertaining then I could've ever asked for.

Thanks!

You got one this year Brooks?

Is this because of the stance width options coming down a bit on the narrow side?
