Spoiler alert. This post is about straps. Again. Whatever. Also Enduro™ so okay.
Richie Rude won the Enduro™ World Series. Again. Want to know what he and I have in common other than probably being called "Dick" in junior high?
Oh well. Here we go regardless of your opinion.
Both he and I use a strap from Backcountry Research to secure our flat fixing equipment to our racing mountain bike cycles.
Getting back to my point, it wasn't too hard to find some images of world class Enduro™ race setups with janky-ass electrical tape holding tubes and whatnot to frames.
Super fast, super secure, super handy, super duper.
But where we are now:
And you will have fast access to your flat repair stuff when you need it, and that's important because...
So any time saved not unwinding three or four wraps of electrical tape is bueno. I'm not saying the strap is a game changer, but when you're sweating the small details (and the seconds), yeth.
I know I'm a never-ending strap infomercial, but keep in mind, I was Backcountry Research's first customer EVER through the randomness that is the internet. I've been a supporter ever since of this Made in the USA (Bozeman to be exact) company, and will continue to sing their praises whenever it's relevant to do so.
I've been running the current version for over a year now, and I haven't dropped a load yet... and honestly can't see how it would ever happen. It's that secure.
Endurance. Enduro™. Same same. Nobody likes losing their shit.
End commercial. Cut to credits.
