ebay lowering links... are they durable?
I ordered a set of 1" raising links off of ebay. I installed them today, and the bike sits PERFECT for me. I can just comfortably flat-foot it now without too much extra knee-bend, with these links and the 1000 seat.
I was wondering what you all think of the durability of these links. I'm concerned that they are made of 6061 aluminum, compared to the steel links I took off. Does anyone see this as a potential problem? What about 50,000 miles down the road? I plan to keep this bike for the rest of it's life.
