Has anyone did any changes to their Gemini? Hope this doesn't become like the Elixir thread Cheesy

It's a long time since I had a Gem, but I don't remember any LE mods.

Main ones were:

Changing the cross over bridle ( on the original version) to the Cross active bridle (standard on later versions)

Pulling in the trickline for better turtle based tricks - pull in to 6cm - you need a longer trick line or fit elastic in the middle like the Outerspace.

2 X 8gram weights on the standoffs for pitch tricks.

some folks also retro fitted roll bars.

somewhere on the web there is a German article called 'Pimp my Gem' ( or something like that) with some good information.
