    Cool new product

    For those of you with a dual crown fork (like myself). If your sick of your rubber frame bumpers slipping and sliding on your fork stanchions and smashing your brake line/ derailleur cables check these out. I found them while I was trolling around at the LBS the other day.

    Lock on fork bumpers, they make them for Boxxer/888/40. Not bad for $15-20!

    Those look pretty cool. Low profile too for extra turning ability. I'm OK with what I have now, but if they start bugging me I'll def switch over.

    I rock the ghetto tubes zip-tied between the crowns. Ugly but it works fine.

    Bought these a few weeks ago. Love em. My stock 40 bumpers got stretched and i kept have to repositioning them. This definitely solves the problem. You can also buy just the rubber part when they get beat up instead of buying a whole new set.

    Hmm, that's pretty clean looking. Might have to get me a set since the stock ones are getting a bit loose now....

    Also looks like a more substantial bumper than on the stock 40. Two

    I solved that problem with a few bits of double sided tape. De-grease the bumpers and stanchions before applying. No more slippage.

    Picked up a pair today at the LBS. The pad seems substantial and definitely has a bigger contact patch (on my frame) than the stock 40 bumper. Real world testing tomorrow.


    edit: Plus my pads are a cool red.
