I love the balance bikes. We've had both our boys on the Strider brand ones (can find them used often) since they were one. I personally like the Striders as the seats can go super low, and the...

This was during my Sunday morning coffee waiting for the wife to wake up after a 2 a.m. night with the cousins. Got some barefoot, boarding, and slalom all in before the rest of the lake got moving....

Didn't someone on here chop a few inches off the nose to get under some restrictions?

I'm not sure on those numbers you got or even what setting you had your meter on, but if you were to meter the socket with the switch on, I would assume you should have 12 volts with the switch on. ...

Yes the upper's on backwards. It may or may not be an easy fix though. If the front/back legs of the upper are the same width, then it should swap easily, but if they're different widths, the...

When you do the steering cable, keep in mind, the cable may have one end that's bigger, and if the hole in the floor between the helm and bilge is pretty small, you might only be able to pull the...

We've had the neoprene HO that was used for both our boys (orange one above) which worked/works pretty well. If I had to do it again though, I'd get a nylon one for when they're an infant so that...

After playing with some colors on that mock-up, I think the black with blue piping or blue double stitching would look pretty sweet.. That leatherseats.com site has a tool where you can play around...

It's not great, but gives a pretty close idea of a couple options.

I'd say black with tan inserts to match up the floor. I think you've got the right amount of blue already. I've got no photo-shop skills, so can't help you there.

Just nice and steady on the start. Hold the throttle lower if you tend to hammer it. Try not to overshoot the speed if you can - as one, it's terrifying for the newb, and two when you back off the...

What they ^^ said. Once you get used to it though, you'll find work-arounds and also be able to use it to your advantage, especially docking on the starboard.

Some owners are delusional. I wondered if it wasn't on consignment. Midwest won't typically take a trade-in that they can't unload pretty quickly, so that makes a lot more sense.

Price seems a bit high to me considering a carb'd motor, closed bow, and a tower you can't rely on not to break. Plus the gel looks pretty oxidized in the zoomed in pictures. But it's at Midwest,...

Bummer. I've got a friend that does the same thing with an old nautique he has, and hasn't had any issues yet. It'd probably work if you added some reinforcement to the prop guard to beef it up.

While 93ish barefoot nautiques were a v-drive, weren't they all closed bows as well? So you'd still have some limited seating. If you hunt around, you may find a Nautique Excel, which was a...

Yea, for open bow DD's, you've got a pretty good list there. A couple other obscure and rare ones you could throw out there would be the Sanger DLX and Hydrodyne Grand Sport. Both are well built...
