It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

It reminds me of the vintage bike swing down centre stand.
Does nothing for the looks of a modern bike.

I can't believe anyone would hang that thing on the back of a Tiger

Pyramids ok for road use, keeps most stuff off the shock, or just use a rubber or plastic guard infront of the shock,, shock socks tend to hold damp and grit inside unless very regularly taken off and cleaned, not good imo

Me and two mates bought a pyramid each and every one shattered around the chainguard fixing points and we had to repair 'em. Disappointed really in the quality as they seem brittle but certainly do the job on the 800 roadie.

My Pyramid hugger has been fine, been on for four years without issue, no cracking, no fouling pannier racks

I have had no issues with my Pyramid hugger either. It's the carbon fibre version and weighs very little. Stupidly expensive though!
