Hayduke Brake lines Can't Post

On their website, they say the hayduke doesn't use the normal 'loop to loop' system on the brake lines where you have a fingertrapped loop on the top of the lower brake line, which connects the loop on the cascade lines to it.

They say something about having that whole thing fingertrapped to itself? I'm trying to picture this, if I am interpreting this correctly....

Can anyone upload pictures?

What I am wondering here is how you tune the Hayduke DBS to your body weight?

I have owned 2 OSP's and both came about 4-5 inches too long out of the factory so I have popped the bartack on the fingertrapped loop on the top of the bottom brake line, shortened it, reconnected the cascades to it, and re bar-tacked.

How do you tune DBS on the Hayduke (unless I am misinterpreting the brake line setup)?????

We are generally doing it by either removing the factory loop and replacing it, or by chopping the lower line off and replacing the whole thing, leaving a reconfigurable junction a foot or so above the brake settings.

Gotcha. I saw some pictures and Squirrel emailed back. Apparently they have 3 brake setting down at the lower end which are pretty much shallow deep and deepest. They claim that they target your exit weight during manufacture.
