Anyone pick up the wrong bar today at alameda?

Postby windhorny » Tue Mar 09, 2010 7:26 pm

it would be at Max's launch. I have a brand new RRD bar with 3 rides on it and I seem to have picked up someone elses that looks new but has some minor wear and tear. This will be impossible to prove but I thought I might post and see if anyone had a bar that looks "a little better" than they remember.

To clarify, the persons bar I picked up has a gouge made in the bar end from where the right steering line comes out. Chances are this person didnt even know that this was there. But now I am stuck with it!!!

With the popularity of the new RRD kites we should all make sure to label ours so this doesn;t become an ongoing problem.

thanks

Yuri

By Yuri's standards, my new bar has 5 secs... it's well worn. I put some hockey tape on the depower finger loop of mine, just to make it a bit different

hey Yuri, so you on RRD now too? I heard all kinds of great stuff about those kites. I Hope to be able to switch with you for a little bit one day and try them out! IF you are going to find your "newer" bar of course. he-he. . .
