Then you need to fiddle about with it to get a good contact signal. Then you need to buy 3 batterie...

Re: The Dreaded Flag - Where to buy...

Only affect I found with a Flag was it frightens horses didn't make the slightest difference otherwise. One horse tried to sit down in the road, which is pretty strange to see , until I jumped off and grabbed the flag.

Re: Damaged cycling clothing, do you throw or repair?

Re: Removing square taper Shimano BB

Re: What full susser for offroad-trail parks ?

Seriously You have a budget of 4K but no idea what you want ? By the the time your spending that sort of money you should know what you want and be visiting the dealers, to narrow down the fit. If you live in a mountain biking area!find the local specialists shops and get it built around you.
