At $275 plus shipping for the evo 2 guards , it's getting spendy to have
a bomb proof set of evo 2 tanks.
But as much as I throw my bike down, I'm in for a group buy if the price

Fair Trade ?

A great experience I'm sure.
For the users in the U.S. be sure to buy the organic fair trade coco.
This provides the growers the best return and does the Tierra justice.
