  • Bitubo shock review

    Fellas I don't currently have much time to post but here it is. I installed the Bitubo last week ( purchased from Herman at Herdan Corp, nice guy) and Sunday morning finally had time to grip it and rip it on the early morning and let me tell ya, SWEEEEEEET, damn that thing is smooth with nice feedback. In the turn over slight bumps it's smooth, when coming out of turn under serious power it hooks up when decelerating from high rpm's and while grabing alot of front brake there is no hoping from the rear tire. I can't speak for the Ohlins or Penske but from my seat of pants run the Bitubo for the money, rules.
    I've got meetings all remainder of today and Tues. & Wed. but if some time I will try and post more in regards to this wonderfull piece of aftermarket glory.
    Anyone thats in for the group buy or just thinking about the quality, mechanics or build of the Bitubo, it's a top notch shock with full adjustability and features of others on the market. For the money, very nice.

      In talking with a distributor in Canada (not for Bitubo...) they'd mentioned they performed well but have a history of losing their seals prematurely. This could be an old issue however and only time will tell once a few boardmembers have logged some miles on them.
