Post by: Robzulu80 on August 21, 2019, 10:01:56 PM
After reading so many reviews and people singing itís praises on here Iíve bit the bullet and ordered myself a madstad screen..... I really do hope they are as good as the reviews say!! Fingers crossed and I will give a quick review of my own once fitted and tried. 😁

Thatís good to hear, Iím a tight Yorkshireman so £300 is a lot for abit of clear plastic haha.
Iím sure when Iíve got it fitted and not getting buffeted Iíll appreciate it!

Yep, good piece of kit.

You will have to play with how you set it for your own personal preference.

I found my best setting by mistake. I forgot to tighten the screen properly, so as I was riding , the wind pressure started angling the screen back towards me, and hey presto I found the best position for me.

"Copey" is quite right ... Just follow Madstad setup angle instructions as a base setting, then work from there if not happy, but I have to say, for me, it was fine from day one. You won't regret the investment ! ...  :031:
