One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I have a Gemini with a broken lower spreader. I know this is an easy repair
but I was wanting to get all the rods repalced and a new bridle it has a crossover style and I hear there are some different ones avaliable?
This is one of my go to kites. I am going on vacation to Long Beach WA.
in June so I would like it back by the end of May. My kite bag has a pick of
this kite before I broke it.

Just my 2---

Get a new spreader and leave it alone.  After all of these years, there's still nothing wrong with that kite the way it was originally made.  If it's not doing something you want it to, or if one of the mods/upgrades addresses an issue that you may be having, then by all means, go for it.  Otherwise, why risk messing with a "go to kite"  right before vacation?

Good luck whatever you decide.  Smiley

Just replace the rod and order a new bridle from Tim. It'll cost about $12 + shipping.

I got got one for my Minigem.

And you'd be all set with minimum fuss / expense.

If you are really intent on replacing the frame on the Gemini, e-mail Tim at
  info@bensonkites.com and explane your problem. He will bet back to you with what he thinks will help.
