Lomo j bars

Post by GEOFF S » Fri Jun 02, 2017 9:41 am

I need to replace my ancient upright bars with something a little better and am considering the LOMO double tubed j bars.
Would anyone recommend these ? I have a carbon Quest. Do these bars conform well to the hull shape of a sea kayak ?

thanks
Geoff

I have used KCS J cradles for over 10 years, I beleve they do them in varying sizes to fit your boat

Ok I have a pair of KCS J cradles, used them once due to a change of car. KCS make excellent stuff take a look http://www.kayakcarriers.co.uk. I am selling them at £50, which is half what a new set will cost. If you are interested, I am located in Staffordshire.

I've got lomo J bars and I'm happy with mine I use them for my scorpio sea kayak. They appear to be identical to some others that are around. The "thumb" bolts need to be well tightened but that's easy with a tool like a plumbers wrench. No way is hand tight enough for my square bars.. reckon the foam
pads will last longer with a wrap of gaffer tape on them

PS you could really customise the fit with extra pipe lagging foam onto the J bars, but I think my scorpio fits nicely just as the bars come.
