How to repair sliding Cam battens (North Rebel)

Postby pam_zh » Thu Sep 19, 2019 7:42 am

Hey guys

I am new to posting but a vicious reader of all kinds of Tipps you have in here. For my current issue at hand I was however not able to find a post.

I am riding North Rebels and one of the CAM battens (little stabilising plastic stick) on one of them has gotten loose. The end with the velcro is perfectly working, however the seam on the other end has a hole and it slides through, along the main tube. Any advice of how to fix this? Any experience? Sewing would be very difficult, as I would need to do it by hand :/

Thank you so much and see you hopefully some day on the water
Pam

Never happened to me, but I would try sewing it by hand. A few stiches should do it.

If you have a repair shop close, I'm sure they won't charge you much to do a pro repair. However, a DIY may be good enough.
