    Ok another dumb nuub that let the salesman talk me into a bike style bar. I like it for cutting un mower accessible tall grass but, I am so tall and the strap is short and the resulting head angle makes it easy for me to scalp allot. I would rather have a loop handle like my other "r" models. Is there any cheap way to convert it to a loop handle. Im not really satisfied with the power of the 90 in the situations I use it so I am considering getting a 130 or 250 r and swapping the R handle from the bigger trimmer onto the 90 and using the bike setup on the new bigger trimmer. What do you guys think?

    90 is under power thats for sure I run 110 Im tall and I use bike handles more easier on my back not bent over all time I run polycut fix string heads My son is 6'5 I had make custom strap for him and my self

    To convert one may cost to much might be easy trade it in

    well If I bought the fs 250 r or at least a 130 I could convert it to the bike setup and figure out a longer strap and then use the 90 and loop handle for regular trimming without scalping.
    Im sure the loop handle and grip throttle would easily swap, just not easy or cheap to buy those parts separate.
