So I’m not crazy in my thought that the 20’ XC fork is very inconsistent? I can’t find a setting I like from day to day. I’ll think I have it...set it the same way the next day and hate it. I had my 11’ KX250F front fork more dialed than I can get this ... more »

Added reply in a thread How cognizant of gear selection are you? 8/11/2020 4:41 AM

Always know bugs me if I don’t. Outside of gauging speed for jumps I like to use gear counting for improvements on speed. I may start the day hitting a corner in second and finish the day wound out in third. Or start the day in third and end up in fourth. ... more »

Might have to look into the Flexx bars if my numbness issue doesn’t go away. Have a few things I was going to try before swapping bars but that was a thought if all else fails.

I cannot comment on the TX other than I was leaning towards the husky until I sat on it. The seat and shrouds are a little wider than the XC. Being short I liked the feel of the XC a lot better so I left with a KTM. If it wasn’t for that I was going ... more »

I used to get arm pump in both arms pre broken wrist and on my 11’ KX250F with a clutch that felt like squeezing a brick! Now I’m on a 20’ KTM and don’t get any arm pump in my left arm. My right hand has been going numb after about a half hour (race ... more »

Yup! I broke my right wrist but now wear them on both. I had the motion limited on throttle side for the first few weeks after I was released and I did notice it but didn’t affect my riding. Just could tell I had it on. Now that I don’t have the movement ... more »

A lot wrist breaks come from hyper extension of the wrist. Not actually just falling on it. The mobius helps to reduce hyper extension the way it tightens Itself as your wrist moves back. Will it totally prevent a wrist break no. Just like guys still ... more »

Been back on the bike for 2 months after fractured scaphoid and surgery. From the research I did into wrist braces the mobius are for both. I’ve got all my range of motion and strength back and still wear them in hopes they will help prevent the same ... more »
