Fly 6 Velcro strap

Postby grantrowan » Tue Dec 20, 2016 6:29 am

Anyone else had issues with the new Fly 6 with the Velcro strap coming off over Railway tracks and Cattle grids? Mine came off over a cattle grid and cracked my carbon chain stay.

Can you share a photo of the cracked chain stay?

The video suggests that the Fly6 may have already been moving about a bit before hitting the cattle grid so wonder if you can share a bit more. The fly6 may not have been tightened properly or perhaps during riding, your leg brushed against the velcro and it has lifted with the movement on the grid creating enough inertia for it to completely release.

I trimmed the velcro on mine so that it was a better fit and wouldn't peel.
