knot by the depowerstrap

Postby mangevbg » Fri Apr 13, 2007 10:22 am

I just changed the stopperball-"stopper" om my Naish SLE bar and it´s a bit tricky to make the knot when I try to put it back, is there anyone that has an easy instruction on this kind of knot. What is it called?

its called a bowline.

easy to tie, easy to adjust and as strong as the rope your tying it in.

I'm sure they'll be websites to show you

BEFORE you untie the initial knot - use a marker to set your line length. It helps when you want to retie the new knot. Sorry if this does not translate from English - but just email me and I can send you the .zip file of how I did it on a Naish Boxer.
