We had a Mac Ride before shotgun came out. I liked that it was super fast to set up to switch between bikes. I used it on a Townie, Nomad and E-commuter. only takes a couple seconds to install. shotgun takes a little more set up. both are good options.
Good round up. I understand you can't test everything out there, but the Leatt airflex pro are amazing. Light, breathable and they stay in place. I forget I have them on.
Fantastic insight, Andrew. Thanks! The intent seemed similar but I haven't ridden them yet
Andrew, have you tried the OneUp carbon bar with the oval area that's supposed to flex similarly to these? They seem like a similar, lighter, less expensive option.
Heck yeah, Casey! Keep getting after it!
I'd like to see how the Fasst Flexx rates compared to the One-Up bars with oval profile section for added compliance. One up has been killing it.
Just hit 49 and been riding MTBs for 30 years.. bikes have been evolving faster than we age, so we are doing more burly riding than we did in our 20's it's amazing.. I'm not ready for an e-bike yet, but when I'm struggling to get out and chase my kid up a hill (I'll be 60 when he hits 14) , they'll be there for me to keep up with him. Yay Bike Technology! Riding keeps getting better every year.
I'd love to see a video of what it takes to remove it.. Heard of some paint or clear coat lifting if it's not done right... So, what is the recommended process and how much time does it take?
Just ordered one!
Wow. That's Amazing!! I've never considered running an SR suntour fork.. gotta say, I'm tempted to try this program out. Would be great to test out one of their forks!
refreshing! since it seems many other costs just keep going up. Would love to try one of these. Bet it's a better match to my CCDB air than my lack-of-adjustments Pike.
•14" of commercial carpet off the roll at Ace hardware is great to stand on while you change in/ out of bike gear. Doesn't pick up pine needles like using the floor-mat of the car.
•Photo copy of license & Insurance card in pack, with ICE contact phone numbers is good to have on solo rides.
•1/2 Liter platypus folding water bottle on DH Park days. Fill it at the bottom, drink on the lift, fold into your pocket. I drink one each lift ride. Great for keeping you from getting dehydrated.
• Tiny bike park pack. Small tool, C02 and tire Plugs. You won't even know it's there. Could save a LONG walk down.
Hey Cam, with many carbon bikes being made in Taiwan, is there an impact on those? I know China is adamant about Taiwan being China, but are the tariffs the same?
