    This is an option as well. Not sure what would draw more ridicule this or a helmet?

    @Yinzer Moto as tew CF parts on motorbikes I wouldn't mind it. I'm on a fancy full carbon mtb and it's been fine. Just started riding a set of carbon wheels this year haven't had tuu tension or true them yet including 2 weeks of ski hill gravity riding never had a alloy wheel that would do that. Of course I have seen broken carbon bikes and wheels but alloy and steel can break as well. Beauty of Carbon mtb frames is they are basically always repairable and the repairs I've seen had a reasonable cost. A alloy mtb is pretty much disposable when it cracks. Saw some trick carbon trials moto wheels from europe but they had the spokes into the rim flange I'd have the spokes all torn out riding in the rock piles. If I wanted a e motorbike and yammie sells the TYe in its current form it wouldn't cause me any stress.

    Don't know haven't seen any of their parts in real life no info on the belt drive on the skecky translated site. But they have some other trick looking stuff don't want the belt they have ti chains for a 10 fold improvement. Want to reverse the air box and fuel tank all in carbon no problem. I assume the pricing is the well if you have tew ask type of pricing :imaposer http://www.vitititaniowtc.com/en/mo...s/light-part-ddm-prodotti-per-moto-trial.html

    A "moto problem" is far less costly and destructive than a drinking, drug, and/or gambling program. Considered in that light, motos aren't a problem at all. When my wife suffered severe postpartum depression for a miserable year and a half after Charlie's birth, moto riding saved both my marriage and my own sanity. It allowed me to be both a good father and mother to my little pumpkin. 20191012_201744.jpg
