Eaglemike Fork brace

I have been toying with the idea of putting on a fork brace. Every tech-day I attend Tomatocity keeps dogging me about how I should get one, and how great they are. I kept that on the back burner for a long time, thinking is it really going to make a difference? Well let me tell ya... WOW, again I say WOW! I feel like I am riding a new bike! The front end is so much tighter, and cornering is, is.... WOW. I can't believe I waited this long.

I called Mike on Friday to order it, and I recieved it this morning (Monday) It comes with a easy set of instructions, (I think it took me longer to read the instructions, than to install it)



The final product




I have done alott of mods to my bike, but, this is one I will be talking about for a long time, It makes a big difference


Take care, and ride safe!

First time posting, although I have been browsing on and off over the last view months, and have a couple of questions.

I have gone to Eagle Mike for some upgrades - Doohickey and fork brace, but find the site somewhat difficult to use.

I have been unable to find product listings, pricing and availability, just little write ups on some issues. Do you need to contact him to get that or is there a link to the "store"?
What is the average time taken to do a doohickey change out?

Appreciate any help,

HP
