I love this thing to pieces. It makes it easier to maintain RPMs at a certain range (especially low ranges), which helps when I'm trying to balance the bike at extremely low speeds (no more engine rev blips that make me lose control). This came in especially handy on my last ride, which involved quite a bit of gravel/muddy/watery roads: I was the only one in our scouting team on a standard bike (the rest were on underbones and scooters). Pretty much everyone had to put their feet down at some point when we got to nasty roads. This little piece of plastic helped me control my bike (which is quite unruly, even in the best of times).
Oh, and it also pretty much eliminated cramps for me, too. If you don't have one yet, what are you waiting for? (Posted on 11/8/11)
I bought this baby to ride 800 miles- from my house to Sturgis on my R1--Knowing that the ride would be long and some what difficult- I wanted to mkae the fratigued factor as little as possible- THIS BABY IS A DREAM- I use it all the time- long trips- ralleys- weekend cruises- Once you get it- you'll love it- it is the best $10 I ever spent! NO BS! (Posted on 10/3/10)
I with the guy above,rode from SF 2 NY and it worked for a while but I will get another just wish it was tighter. I tried heating it up and making it smaller,that worked for a while. See the photos of me doing this at updownlongwayaround.com
