The fork brace is not the subject of this thread, but all I can say is when I got it the last year, I did some very meticulous testing. I was putting in on and off, riding the same stretches and curves with and without, I came to the conclusion – wasted money. This year I started with it. Then I took it off, for good.
Back to the subject, yes, I was relaxed and confident that time. Why? It happened all of a sudden. At least 500 of gravel were done this season, about 10000 were done before. I have around 40000 clicks now in total, just at that specific Wee, probably about 300000 in total.
Anyway I checked it once again today, about 60km, 110 km/h on very thick well maintained gravel, no problem. Slide into a turn? – with big pleasure. Absolutely no problem with anything.
