I went with a 168cm, I'm 6'4" 230lbs. I have Cartel bindings from two years ago and they're super easy to put in the ICS slot. It's east to adjust you stance width, which is great. The board is infinitely stiffer than my older burton and the width works well for my size 14 boots. I rode early and chunked out a few piece of the base which was a bummer, and i ripped up the edges so it'll be interestnig to see how it repairs but the stainless steel is ideal. very light, as light as my old 160. I think if I could do it all over again I'd probably go with the 164cm, plus the blue looks better. my biggest concern was how well not ICS bindings would work and it is truly a non-issue, I would definitely buy this board again.
