You can get your weight back for 55 mph whoops better!
It’s amazing how much grip they give, I can’t believe I’m riding with a seat without them. I need to put a new seat cover on anyway. I’m getting the ribbed!
Another note how hard is it to put a seat cover on and not have it look like the spackly YZ? What tools and how powerful of stapler?
Heading to Kohler WI 4 ADV wedding.
Beloit Tomorrow for GF grandkids B day.
There goes the weekend..
But just as with a cable clutch and a manual kicker you can still move around on the seat, it’s just a bit harder....
Without them the fatigue factor increases tenfold. And there is no titanium!
Seat covers are more technique than anything. I’ve done many seats with just a basic Arrow manual stapler. Although a cheap basic pneumatic one is easier, a manual one gives me more control because it makes me think before I pull the lever. Make sure you have the right staples, start up front, keep the cover tight, and work in a pattern down both sides of the cover...with NO rebound.
A basic Arrow manual stapler did these...
Put the stock foam and cover back on this one this past spring.
HF pneumatic did these.
So as long as I take my time and hold the manual staple gun firmly against the seat pan it shouldn’t be too bad?
I mean my current seat is in pretty good shape.....
All these next photos are ones I saw that you guys haven’t seen... or maybe you have but pics add to the fest
Yes, but should you even have a seat with the shit you ride?
And while I’m not a mountain person, this is a pretty stellar shot. If we still had a front page rotation of pics this one should be on it. Well done.
Very cool loves me some mountains.
What....you don't travel with your photographer?
So the Scott trial goes today in Yorkshire. Really cool event loop is something like 80 miles with 60 plus sections. It's a time and observation event so nothing like hauling ass on the seatless bike all day and still riding sections. Event is over a 100 years old I'd love tew try it even though at my current fitness level I might almost die. I far as I know we have nothing like it in North America. Known as the hardest one day trial can be entered by riders from clubman tu pro's.
I don’t even have an photographer. It’s me, my bike, and a BlackBerry camera.
All my hard earned ADV cred just went down the drain. Back to being a poser.
Now to spray the chain with WD40 and feel the great disturbance in the ADV force.
Like a monkey n a football.
A fella that’s a bad bad Mann on a motorscooter took that, he’s @enduro-ince on here.
It’s a picture of the salt river range from the top of the highest peak in the Wyoming range, Wyoming peak.
How much is the trike version?
