    I believe they have reduced the shipping to $48 and are now offering $48 off a purchase as well.

    I removed the guideline between the two struts and lengthened the distance between them, and....

    The BIAS fits fine!

    The other benefit was that I was able to pitch my tarp on the struts too -- no additional supports (e.g., trekking poles) needed.

    Distance between struts:
    TOP: 136 in (345 cm)
    BOTTOM: 92 in (234 cm)

    I purchased a pair of steel O-rings and attached them to the guy lines and added an amsteel loop and a carabiner. This mod made it very easy to attach the different hammocks.







    This is the BIAS Micro Weenie, 11 ft hammock. The under quilt is from Arrowhead Equipment.

    Wow! It worked with an 11' hammock with underquilt!
    Great work on the modifications Derek (as usual).

    These things are really quite lightweight considering what they are doing, and compact as well. Not that I would want to hike with them but they would certainly be handy for apartment dwellers or car camping where there are no trees (or no hammock attachments allowed).

    Do they have a USA website for ordering? (maybe without the hammock).

    Thanks Mad! It worked, but I could have done a little better on the BIAS but I didn't have a way to adjust the continuous loops. If I had smaller loops (I actually doubled mine) it would have been a few inches better. But it still worked! WOo-HoO!

    No USA to my knowledge, although they are doing a promotion which essentially gets you free shipping ($48 off, I think). What I heard is that the hammock is part of the kit (right now) -- in part because they are already pre-packaged that way, but also because the hammock doesn't factor much into the price. Based on the materials, the hammock is very similar to the Grand Trunk Ultralight, which retails for only $20, and sometimes less on a bargain.

    I have a trip planned down in the Grand Canyon next year and I'm considering taking the stand just because it means I can now hammock below the rim! At only 1kg, it's not a horrible sacrifice for a dreamy sleep in a picturesque canyon.
