Re: The Center Line Swivel; Got one? Love it or Hate it?

Wow MOFO, good research, that is a ton of swivels. On the RPMs, I just reach up and slap the swivel. That or roll my body in the opposite direction to unspin the lines. It's a minor annoyance. And I do rinse my bars with fresh water after every session, but I have never lubricated the swivel. Honest...

Re: SS Rev or Rev 2, low end?

I'm your weight (160 lbs) and ride a 129 Lunacy. For me the REV 9m is nicely powered starting at about 18mph. And I've ridden it to the high 20s (mph) just fine.

Re: REV or Cult

I posted this in another thread but thought it might help here as well.... Can't help you with the comparison as I've never ridden a Cult. But I did finally get to ride my 13m and 9m REVs last week quite a lot. If you are familiar with the Fuel, then you will know how the REV rides. My opinion is th...

Re: Rev or Vegas

Can't help you with the comparison as I've never ridden a Vegas. But I did finally get to ride my 13m and 9m REVs last week quite a lot. If you are familiar with the Fuel, then you will know how the REV rides. My opinion is they ride like a Fuel, except you have more range and depower, a little more...

Do you know what year that photo is from?? He's talking about the bar Ruben is using there, which is a 2005 bar. Not for the everyday kiter however as most want more depower, 5 lines on a C-kite, quick adjust stopper, safe chicken loop. But I agree it was simple and probably my favorite bar. Shy, a...

Interesting topic....cries for both legal and immigration reform...

Btw, I donated some $ to the widow after the "accident". Can I get a refund on that? I'd rather give it to Romney's landscapers.
