Twisting in Bib
I just got my Starter a few days ago, and have been experimenting with various wraps and adjustments.
The main problem I’m having is the shaft twists in the hanger when weight is applied. The head twists to the left about 45 degrees, which isn’t good. Rarely it will twist to the right. Seems like my shaft is oval-shaped, and it is tough to keep the straight sides of the gripping area of the hanger balanced on the narrow ends of an oval.
I’ve been wrapping with theraband and/or sweatshirt material, and varying the bottom gap and toe. I’ve tried wrapping clockwise and counterclockwise, loose and tight. The direction of the wrap doesn’t seem to matter. The same thing happened when I used no wrap.
BTW, my erect girth is about 4.5”. I’ve tried bottom gap settings from about 1/8” between the nuts, on up to 1/2” or so, depending on wrap. I keep the bottom gap as wide as I can while not allowing the top teeth to completely close when tightened.
Tomorrow I’ll experiment more with position in the hanger as I attach it. So far, it seems that if I start with the shaft positioned slightly to the right, it will only go further to the right instead of correcting to center when weight is applied.
Has anyone here had a case of the twists? What did you do to resolve it? Any suggestions?
