I'm not sure if we'll get many/any buyers from the COG site.  :o

I posted the new info in an existing thread and then someone by the name of VAGTR started a new thread on the subject. Bob thanked him for the info by giving him a ration of crap for his trouble.

http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php/topic,35727.0.html

I couldn't keep my mouth shut about what Bob said, and I'm not the only one. See for yourself...


I am VAGTR on the "other site".  I chose to take the high road for the benefit of the members here. Hopefully we will get a couple interested that otherwise would not have known.

Ryan,
As there are several Canyon threads I will try and use the most pertinent thread for my question.  I have a 2009 and it is equipped with a set of Ronnie's Pegs. I understand the Gen 2 has no problems but I am interested in your opinion on the Gen 1 bikes.  I have attached photos for comparison.  Thanks.

Eeew, I think they are not going to work together on the Gen1.  :(

PM sent. Will call in CC info Monday if that's o.k.

Surprised at the COG site. Maybe it's just the mod, but I know they are the same type of folks. We all ride the same bike for heaven sakes!!

Yeaaa, it doesn't look like they're going to work together. However, that's not to say that they wouldn't work together with some slight modification to the pegs or the peg mount. What type of modification? I can't be sure without having both and tinkering around a bit. If you'd like to be the guinea pig for us and test it out, we can set up some arrangement where we waive the restocking fee and cover the shipping back to our facility if the part absolutely won't work. If you'd like to do this, we can speak more about it on Monday when I'm back in the office!

Sounds good! I believe you're order #17 or so.

You grossly overestimate the "giveadamnatude" of the silent majority.  Most people don't agree with the heavy handed mod, nor give a crap about the "this board/that board Peyton Place" that has been the US COG of the last few years.  The people who frequent that board more than this will buy the bars if they want them, and won't be dissuaded by that thread.

Thanks for doing that, someone had to take the high road as I wasn't able to.

Are these only tip over guards?  Would they do much at say 30 mph?

Their primary purpose is tip-over.  Combined with rear bars, however, they probably will offer significant protection at speed, also.

But nobody would guarantee that, nor is anyone going to put the money into R&D to see what would happen in a 30 mph slide with the bars.

Unfortunately, we'll find out SOMETIME how they do with some speed.  But that will be an anecdotal example, and your experience could easily vary.

Unfortunately situations can vary greatly at that speed (high side, low side, t-bone, etc.). However, with that said, I'm confident these bars would hold up in some situations and probably be demolished in others so it really just depends. As others have said they weren't designed for that nor can we guarantee they'd hold up at that speed.

Their primary purpose is tip-over.  Combined with rear bars, however, they probably will offer significant protection at speed, also.

This!

Precisely. Besides, situations can vary greatly at that speed which will drastically change the amount of damage inflicted on the bike/crash bars. Did the rider low-side around a slick turn at 30mph? Did they violently high-side into a rock wall at 30mph? Did they go over a railroad track at 30mph, get their tire stuck, and get tossed off the bike? Every situation will likely yield a different result which presents a real issue to the people testing these bars at speed. Unfortunately all we can do is manufacture a strong, quality product and test it for basic tip-overs and hope it holds up in a few other situations as well. I know our bathroom bars have been put through a helluva lot over their tenure as law enforcement bars and we took what we learned from designing those bars and incorporated as much as we could into these Canyon Cages. I believe we have come up with a really solid product but we won't know for sure how well they hold up until people start "testing" them in situations other than basic tip-overs.

Thanks, Chet! I replied to your inquiry asking if you'd like the front and rears or just the front so you can just disregard that message.
