    Pansh A15 Prototype

    I think the reason pansh can offer such cheap prices is 1, the build quality is not quite as good (getting closer though) as other brands. 2, the quality control is quite poor, (i have had to heavily adjust the bridles on all three of my pansh kites as they would not sit at the zenith out of the bag). 3, very limited after sales support, (just by going on what I read online for this one) at the end of the day if you are looking for something better in any of these areas it seems you would be best to pay the extra $ for one of the other mainstream brands.

    my new toy

    this years project, LL Mini in 316 stainless (if I can salvage the right steel). I don't think they make stop sign poles out of stainless so it wont be as good as yours @Chook.

    Buggy Tyres

    As my bug has serious egg shape in the rims that cause me to fear for my life when I hit 35 kph I started to look at new tyre / rim combinations that make for a smooth ride but are still affordable. I really like the size / profile of the tyres on @Chook's sysmic and came across these which I think may be similar. https://www.geotyres.com.au/16x6-50-8-k401-8-ply-kenda-straight-rib-tyre/ Has anyone had experience with these tyres? If so any Ideas on the rims they would fit on and where to get them.

    Buggy Tyres

    Love it John, Hopefully I can be as lucky with my scrounging. Good thing is with winter set in, I have time on my side to hunt. 7000 K's , well at least I know ill only need to have one set for a very long time.

    Buggy Tyres

    Thanks for the heads up, I'd love to, (Really enjoyed taking @Chook's out for a spin @ Kingston), but I just don't have the cash to be even halfway there. If its still for sale once I have sold some of my other toys and I can be decent about my offer I will definitely consider it.

    Buggy Tyres

    Thanks for the info @igeighty Well I'll be ! they are the same tyre, I must be blind. So it looks like including shipping it would be about $400 all up to completely set myself up with these. I would be using the adaptors to start with until I upgrade my rear axle. My bug is a Rockville Classic, the forks on it now won't suit but I will make some new ones up from steel If I do end up getting Midis, so no need to measure up for me. I may have to just get some standard Fallshaw barrow wheels for now though as $400 is a fair way over budget. At least I know how much I am up for when I do decide to go wide

    my new toy

    I've had to put this one on the backburner Mez as the shed is full of projects I need to finish before I can fit it in. I did start to look around for an old windsurfer mast and sail to use but no luck yet. Hopefully when the weather warms up I will get more inspired to get it done.

    Era of the Adjustable Kiteboarding Bar

    I suppose it does make sense to adjust the lines that have the least amount of tension on them. This also makes for a cleaner stronger frontline / safety line system. the big issue I can see in all of these systems is the "hidden" mechanics which could wear and break without any visual indication that we are used to looking for. if they make it easy to clean and inspect these systems then I would probably be interested.

    North Kites Click Bar 2017

    that makes more sense, some clever mechanics to do that, I guess time will tell how good it is.

    could get a bit hairy when you have only done one side and a gust comes along before you get to do the other.

    Winter blues beater

    there's some good YouTube videos of people being dragged backwards through the water by the leash while the kite is deathlooping. I think one of them is a pro freestyler during a comp.

    Winter blues beater

    the girl is greta menardo, she kites freestyle and as such does moves that involve handle passes so must have the leash attached to the back of her harness. for someone who is not kiting freestyle having the leash on the front is the safer option.
