    GPR V4 Fat Bar Stabilizer Kit

    M. in NM

    Not impressed

    First the install...after all done I spun it through the settings to check the operation. At 7 and 8 it flexed so much it actually spun the mount a little bit. To fix I had to tighten the one allen screw way tighter than what seemed sensible for the bolt size--I'd guess 100ft-lbs but its hard to tell because i only had long allen wrenches in that size, however it was literally all me and my bigger friend could push/pull. The engineering is unimpressive, especially for the cost. I'll be surprised if this thing lasts 200hrs. It looks good on the bike and I like the extra 1/2" or so height. As for the experience, I used it for 130 miles in everything from 90mph freeway, gravel roads, tight muddy forest single track, desert single track and sand, and deep sandy riverbeds. am definately regretting getting something that resists both directions. I was primarily concerned about tank slappers going 75+ in deeper sand, but even set on 2-3 it really distracted my desert singletrack and sandy whoops routine. Problem is it prevents you from doing your own correcting when the tire gets loose. It actually made me feel like a newby again, and pretty sure it actually caused me to dump it in 2 places I've been over a dozen times and never had trouble. The only time I felt it helped me was going straight up steep dirt hills and straight down long steep sandy hills where it usually wants to yank your wheel from you. I am hoping I getvused to it, but my initial feeling is its a huge waste of money on about $50!worth of engineering and parts.
