Re: Differences among North (/Duotone) bars

Maybe just a detail but I remember that North had a lot of issues with seperating bargrips until 2016. They solved it - afaik - only in 2017.

Re: Differences among North (/Duotone) bars

Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

Because they are dangerous and fly like shit compared to this year's or even a few years ago kites. /thread Yup - it's a miracle anyone survives until "this year's" kites arrive. :jump: "compared to" is the key term. Old cars are dangerous and drive like shit compared to modern cars.

Depends a lot on whether you are riding hook or slider.
No it does not.
Sorry, I was referring to whether to wear it loose or tight. Not the op. If you ride with a rope you can wear it really tight. If you ride with a hook, looser can be better.

Re: Wetsuit rubber going bad - anything to do?

Another suit. Some polymer have a longer shelf life than others, and the usage factors into that (sometimes even not using it, like with car tires, can be worse).
