  :sip:  I was on a  proper corrugated road this weekend and wondered about the same thing
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Hi ETS

Ek het die standaard steering damper vervang met 'n Hyperpro steering damper
wat in sy plek pas, vir my het dit 'n groot verskil gemaak en ek glo die geld werd, en jy kan
hom nog stel ook!

Net n vraag, glad nie kritiek nie. Wat het gemaak dat jy nie tevrede is met die standaard steering damper nie

Ek het nog nie sonder hom gery nie, so ek weet nie of daar 'n groot verskil is nie. Wat ek wel weet is dat ek met n LC GS gery het wat nie 'n S D op het nie, en sy stuur was baie sensitief, te sensitief vir my>

@ ETS
Ek het by TrackMac Belville, (Patty) bestel en dit was so R 6600.00

Ek het 'n 2008 GSA gehad met 'n Scott steering damper en seker maar daaraan gewoond geraak of sal ek se
bederf geraak. Toe koop ek vir my die 2015 LC Adventure, sy stuur is vir my baie sensatief wat seker ook nie 'n
slegte ding is nie, maar
besluit om ook maar 'n steering damper op te sit. Vir my is net daardie extra confidence wat ek het as ek met
een ry.

Both WIlbers and Hyperpro both make a steering damper for the LC - both of them are around R 9 750.00 depending on the rate - give me a shout.
