When to retire frame straps
When do folks decide to retire (or rather replace) frame straps? I would imagine (actually know) that much of the wear comes from UV exposure so for this example let's assume western desert rivers. How many days/years until you decide it's time to pull the trigger on a new set?
info: straps are 1.5" hw polypro and the are strapping a raft frame
