So a quick update on the status of the new microloop, or whatever its name shall be (we are working on this now). The guy who created this happened to be in Tampa last week and we met up for dinner. The device is solid - very elegant, effective, and should work with "most" bars on the market - stay tuned on this. He is going to have a few samples to sent to me in the next few weeks for testing. We will try it out on a number of bars and report feedback. I'll try and shoot a little gpro video so you can see. At this point its just a matter of getting some wind. Come on season !!!!

There was a shipping issue but there are 3 of them on the way to him to Orlando. My hope is that he will receive them within the next few days and he'll either send them to me, or I may just go pick them up. I'll keep everyone posted.

Sounds good all.. stay tuned for updates. He is putting them together and shipping them out to me within the next few days. Any luck, I should be receiving it within a week or so. Since we haven't had any wind I'll probably just post some images and maybe a video on the device itself so you can get an idea.

Why aren’t the big players making these as standard on there bars? Surely this is the way forward and an actual game changer for a lot of people instead of things like the north click bars extremly exspensive simple pigtail replacement system. something that is actually useful engineered into a bar?
