My first thought. Danger exceeds safety.

For the same reason I don’t use those in Moto I wouldn’t touch those on a bike. Wash out around a corner, arm gets caught in gaurd, snappy snappy. Not for me

@chasejj well, we are talking about people who spend $8-$10k to ride a bike in the mud the turn around and try to make their "money back" selling their wall art of a bike for a whopping $4k "ridden a handful of times " rigs. Hah

Hostility is the result of my lack of patience for dumb stuff and how this industry will promote it nonstop and never mention that it is not necessary. Nobody wants to upset their buddies in man buns. I will and don't GAF.
BTW- How in the hell does this protect against anything but the most minor...more

I have the material and can cut and apply film over vulnerable spots as needed. It is driven by carbon fiber garage queens who obsess over resale. I don't buy my bikes thinking immediately about resale. That is dumb.

In an industry overwhelmed with dumb and overpriced products. The protection film market is leading the charge for the stupid looking to give away their money because they don't want a scratch on their frame. Insane.

Why even bother yourself with frame coverage? it is already painted, why to add wrap on top of that?
it is free, less stressful and 0 hours wasted, and 0 waste

As an onyx hub owner i understand that blessing and curse of a silent hub. Always hunting down creaks and rattles.

These are intriguing.

I'm gonna take an absolutely WILD guess and say that it's an instant engagement hub...just like their BMX hub that shares the same name https://www.boxcomponents.com/Box-One-Stealth-Expert-Rear-110x10mm

This is one of those products that honestly stagger me. $70-150 for a pair of foam hoops? They are obviously taking the piss. I will never support a company who treats customers with such contempt.

Having run most of the options out there extensively the CushCore works well. There is a specific situation where I have flatted multiple times though. When leaned over in a corner at speed the rocks will slide up the side of the insert and cause pinch flats. Have...more

Funny that you never tried Cushcore, because I think you just wrote a salespitch for them. Rim protection, sidewall support, and not shrinking or losing function over time are the main selling points of Cushcore over other tire inserts. I used to run DH tires...more

Lots of trails up there. Keep your eyes peeled for the PB article that drops tomorrow.

Ebikes ain’t legal up there though. Pretty disappointed that these guys didn’t figure that out before they filmed and shared this on a major media outlet.
Super lame.
