The jacket is $650, the pants are $400.
Thanks for the reply Cam. Id probably be a large given my 33-34" waist, but staying dry is the main goal for the commute. I already have a OG Guardian jacket and it has been fantastic. Ill start looking to see what I can find for the pants.
How would the Thunder pants work for the commuter option? I ride to work all year round, and need something that is actually waterproof. My current ShowersPass Refuge pants have given up their ability to hold the DWR treatment (after only 3 seasons), and are quickly wetting through. ShowersPass has said that this is common. Pretty disappointing. Before I spend another $300 on those, would $400 on the Thunder pants be a better bet? Do they fit overtop of a pair of pants or jeans?
Thanks for the review!
To follow in the footsteps of that other site.......Looks like a Process 153
It works to help clean and lubricate your seals. Put some Fork Boost on your stanchions, cycle the fork, wipe away the excess that has pulled some of the dirt from your seals. It also gives some lubrication to the seals for a short period of time.
It is NOT a suitable replacement for regular lower maintenance in my opinion. You still need to do oil changes and thorough seal/foam ring cleaning.
Ive attempted to go that route several times before. I have found custom ordering anything through an LBS to be a futile effort that ends in frustration for me.
Thanks! Im sure I can find enough stuff to put in my cart to qualify for the free shipping. Good prices for sure.
Ive had my eye on those too. Cant seem to find them here in Canada though. Any leads?
Im not sure if anyone else noticed this, but the entry level R' version (a mere $10K), doesnt even come with the EP8 motor. It comes with the E7000 which is a downgrade from even the E8000.
Wondering if the weight is on par with the 2000's Bullits that were freeride legends on the Shore?
Maybe its just me being nostalgic, but I find myself disappointed to see these iconic names coming back as E-bikes.
How could they not have capitalized on this by using Trek rather than Bontrager for the name for this? :)
What happens when you need to remove your grips for some reason? What do you have to do to break them free of whatever adhesive you have used? Are the grips easy to re-install after removal?
The lowers are all the same AFAIK. They say 'torque cap compatible' but will still take a normal hub cap. Apparently wheels are easier to install if you have torque caps, and give a larger mating surface. Ive never had any issue with non-torque cap wheel installs, so Im not sure why they even exist. Apart from the marketing gimmick of 'stiffness' I would presume.
