ch-ch-ch-ch-changes: polipo 3rd gen update

(via polipo)
less is more, and the devil in in the details. i know what i said is a bit cliche, but it's true. after some vigorous testing as you have seen before, the changes are subtle but noticeable in the 3rd gen polipo straps. they used to look like this. they got rid of the lining except for the end lining and displaced the label. what really interests me is the fishtail design. jeff from bike jerks recently reviewed hold fasts and where polipo has the fish tail, holdfasts see a little stretch. im curious to see the functionality in that. it looks like it substitutes that breaking in period with the lack of fabric in that area (because naturally, the bottom dual straps pull apart when you pull up on the pedal, you know?). interesting design polipo...
