I've had 'em for a year now and put 'em through some off road action (6' 2" 260 lb) - they're bulletproof...

Got mine in the mail just a few weeks ago and they fit perfectly. It will be some time before I can properly test them though since my new build is going slowly. My only suggestion kiwi would be to replace the nut on the pinch part of the drop out with something that is truly captured in those slots and won't turn when tightening the hex head. Minor thing I know and probably not worth the extra production costs. I am going to replace mine with small rectangles and drill and tap them. I'm just a kook that way though.

sexy bike and dropouts, but I thought dh comp was chosen for the triangle battery space.

I'm ready to buy one when they are available. From what I understand the adapters fit in both type of swingarms but if it matters I need one for the 2005 year 150mm swingarm.
