    Awesome Strap!

    I just received some A+++ customer service from Backcountry Research on their Awesome Strap product line. I liked these guys already b/c they sponsor some my fav local races. Now I love them and shall sing their praises.

    That is all.

    Now I have to google the company to see what you're talking about.

    I needed a tube/lever/CO2 holder and wanted to use a strap instead of a seatbag b/c I'm one of those weight weenie types. Usually carry it in my jersey pocket, but needed them for an extra bottle and nutrition (was trying to avoid a camelback). They were out of the 2010 stuff and waiting for the 2011 stuff, but after an email they MADE me one and shipped it out.

    So that's why your hair dryer always looked so well organized.


    Thanks for the tip! (even though it's not an "Awesome Strap")

    Awesome Strap Backcountry Research

    I don't know how this happened, I have not received the customer service you would expect from a new growing company.

    I ordered a couple of items based on posts from this website. The order was placed on 3/12, no confirmation of order was sent until I emailed on 3/27, telling me that my order was being shipped. On April 10th after no receipt of product I emailed again and was told that another order was being shipped that day with tracking that would be sent to me. I've not yet received my order or an email stating it was shipped, a tracking number or anything else!

    Every company has problems from time to time and I can handle that, I cannot handle no response or not following through with what you offered to do.

    I have a confession to make. Velcro on cycling products is beginning to annoy me, because I always wear long fingered gloves and the hook part of the Velcro sticks to my gloves (little top tube bag w/ a velcro flap, mostly).
    However, I'm thinking about getting a can of Big Air and using a velcro strap to hold it onto my seat post; ditto on trying to avoid the CamelBack until summer really kicks into gear and I need the water capacity.

    To my knowledge, Big Air has been taken off the market. I never felt comfortable riding around with compressed propane 5" from my arse.
