Almost end of the month, so it can't take too long now :mrgreen:

I was wondering... is there gonna be a new QR mechanism in the likes of Eleveight/Takoon/LF, that would be a real 1 click reset without the need to push the QR up?

I was wondering too if the original V1-V3 QR mechanism was a patent from North that was bought by Switch? Because you see a lot of manufacturers using an OEM solution like the 'Nuke' (pretty good) or Gin/BW/OR release (which is a crap QR if you ask me).

Nice mix of old school and new school bar tech! Great work Switch! Looks like the only mod I will have to make is removing the donkey dick ;) .

Looks pretty good, but I have a few questions... :mrgreen:

- The safetyline looks PU coated?
- Width adjustment? Can't really tell from the picture....
- Please tell me that's NOT the same QR as Ocean Rodeo/Gin/Ben Wilson/Peter Lynn? I think that thing is a b*tch to reset cause the lever tends to flip inwards, having you to peel out the lever before you can reset...
- That QR has a pretty free turning swivel.... I don't like that with unhooking... possible to tighten it?
- Same Teufelberger lines?
- Looks like the donkeydick will get in the way when unhooking... easy to remove? (I like systems where you can twist it to the outside better... )

I'm still gonna get it though.... lol :mrgreen:

If the price is right, Switch will have a winner on their hands. People tend to judge with their eyes, and I've heard plenty of times that the previous Switch bars looked ugly (and well....they're not the prettiest). People will assume it must be crap too then... :lol: But the new ones looks slick 8-)

That looks super clean. My only other hope is that it shed some weight too.
