Shortening Chicken loop Switch Style

Postby alford » Tue Oct 17, 2017 11:49 pm

There's been lots of chatter lately about using a smaller CL if you don't unhook. Switch's new bar has a CL that's very easy to make smaller and they provide nice clear instructions on how to, nice job Switch! I believe this bar is essentially the same as several other brands so this may apply to those as well.

Not much shorter than standard - otherwise it's a shocker to get reset, and not sure how the angle would affect the QR.
alford - sorry - I guess I could have posted some pictures for you.
