Try googling ‘Fairlead’jaros wrote: ↑Mon Sep 02, 2019 6:07 amI have seen a production piece, that bolts on the carbon tube and has a metal line slider in it, but can not find a picture anymore and do not know what is the name of this piece. Anyone can help me?
And while being on the subject - who is using a kitebar without the hole trough the center of the tube? Do you find it ok (for foiling only)? Any + / - ?
How is it made? Post pictures if you can please.
I like the idea of leaving the carbon tube intact in the middle…
Thanks Faklord! "Stanchion Fairlead" was the word. I guess this is what I saw: Now that I saw it again, I also think it might get in the way, like you said… Anyone using this?faklord wrote: ↑Mon Sep 02, 2019 8:09 amTry googling ‘Fairlead’
Maybe your thinking of something like this? https://www.tridentuk.com/gb/product-2- ... 052-2.html
To keep it clean you could fill the middle part of the tube with something and drill & tap from one side only.
You can get a stanchion fairelead that clamps on to a tube but I think it would get in the way.
There are a couple options here:
Just looked at that CloudRiders post. When asked the same question, the author wrote “...I made a 3D insert with an embedded nut. I made a video of the process which I have to edit. A barrel nut inside a tube that fits inside the bar is an easier option. I though of it after making this one.”
