By John BarresiThis tutorial from Kitelife.com breaks down an efficient and reliable assembly and disassembly method for most dual line sport / stunt kites.
While putting your kite together and taking it apart may not be relevant to your flying, it DOES effect not only the longevity of the kite and its materials, but a proven process can greatly streamline and simplify your "before and after" on the field.

I don't know if it there's some dual line kite muscle memory at play, or what, but this maneuver came very quickly to me. I still have trouble losing altitude when turning on the edge of the wind window, but the bicycle rotation just felt natural.
Loved this! You really can get a workout when flying in lite winds!
I'm excited to try this
Quite hard to get it right ... this is harder to keep it in a straight line, not a scribble line ... (laughing)
If you think straight line traveling bicycle is easy to do ...
... then it is time to upping your skills
Do traveling bicycle in a circle, triangle, square, star or octagon line (formation)
