Thinking of mounting the Switchbacks on a pair of XCD Guides instead of the 3 pin Hardwire. If I only climbed and decended, the switchbacks are the obvious choice, but I also tour rolling terrian and bushwack. I use and R8 cartridge biding for lift service and feel that a 3 pin is better for the kind of touring I do, but the advantage of free piviot on the ups makes me wonder if the Switchback isn't the way to go. I do flip up the heel cartridges on downhills and touring is alot nicer when they are off. Seems like the Switchback would force me into touring (not climbing) with a cartridge heel vs freedom of a 3 pin. Is the Switchback for me or stick to the Hardwire? Thank you
