    Introducing: Joystick Components

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to get this great new brand on everyone's radar...

    Joystick Components

    Their first product is an all-mountain carbon bar that looks and feels great. If you're interested in this bar, apply the coupon code "ridejoysticknow" and get 40% off. Limited time on that.

    You're welcome.

    What is the warranty on this bar? Why is the DH bar going to be alum. and not carbon, or are you making a carbon DH bar also?

    it's funny to hear "not wide enough" @ a 725mm starting width now compared to just a couple of years ago. crazy to see widths edging closer to moto! it does feel good though. some guys look like their getting crucified while riding!

    725mm is 28.54 inches, Plenty wide for most. I prefer to run 30 inch bars.

    Cutting Bars is easy. Adding to your bars isn't.

    The Joysticks look nice and thanks for the coupon codes.

    Damping, not dampening... The carbon does not make the trail vibrations wet. Proper grammar counts when you're a business. I'd suggest a spelling change on your website.

    Agreed- I am a fairly good sized guy at 235lb and broad shouldered so my 32" bars look normal but I see some guys have my size riding the same bars and they look like they are going to take flight...mind you they kick my fat but up the mountain so what ever works for them.

    Back on target- 28" is good but wider and under the 100$ mark would be awesome too- I would love to try a pair.... although I don't know why as the snow is coming and I don't ski and I will be depressed until I can get south for some riding.

    Both spelling are correct. I can post more sources if you wish.


    dampen [ˈdæmpən] vt
    (= diminish) [+ enthusiasm, excitement] → refroidir
    (= lower) to dampen sb's spirits → décourager qn
    (= moisten) [+ cloth] → humecter
    dampen down
    vt sep (= check) [+ demands] → freiner; [+ economy] → freiner


    4. dampen - reduce the amplitude (of oscillations or waves)
    weaken - lessen the strength of; "The fever weakened his body"


    dampen
    verb
    1. smother or suppress; "Stifle your curiosity" [syn: stifle] [ant: excite]
    2. make moist; "The dew moistened the meadows" [syn: moisten]
    3. deaden (a sound or noise), especially by wrapping [syn: muffle]
    4. reduce the amplitude (of oscillations or waves)
    5. make vague or obscure or make (an image) less visible; "muffle the message"
    6. check; keep in check (a fire)
    7. lessen in force or effect; "soften a shock"; "break a fall"

    Too good to be true
    I placed an order and paid for it a week ago and now I get email:

    Thanks for your order! We truly appreciate your support! To qualify for the $10 shipping you need to have a North American shipping address. If not we will have to charge an International shipping fee. Unfortunately for single unit orders international shipping can be expensive. If you were to order three bars we can ship internationally for $10. Another option would be if you have a shipping account we can prepare the shipment utilizing your shipping account.

    Edit: They did send me the bars " this time only $10" . Great.
    They paid $40 for shipping,,

    Dampening is also grammatically correct

    I'd suggest thinking before you speak next time.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Dusty - Cool to hear about a new brand. Just noticed you're the sales manager for both Knolly and Joystick. Is Joystick a house brand of Knolly or just a side project?

    These guys have hit the ground running. Their stuff, so far, looks so legit, right down to the branding and website. We wrote an small article recently on the site—if anyone is interested in design in the mtb industry take a peak. Can't wait to see the products in the flesh though!

    UMMMMMMM... Warranty?

    Doesn't matter how good it looks if they don't back their product in writing.

    Yeap, warranty and backing a product for sure, but when the product isn't even available yet, you need to set a good impression via the media's that people really look to nowdays, and Joyride are on it. There are definitely some more that people want to know about them though, and you're totally right, warranty is a big one once products are available.
