I've almost have my 450 complete. I want to put a little armor on her though. I'm looking at skidplates and boot guards from Devol in aluminum,& E line in carbon fiber. Anyone have some experience with either. I know it's kind of a dummy part, but I would be curious to see how well the carbon really holds up, or if it's just a pretty little add on. The carbon looks cool, but I don't give a poo about look, I want to save my case when I come up short on Michigan rocks. Thanks all. Oh yeah, the skid plate will be in direct contact with my Ultimate MX hauler. The bikes weight and two clamps snug the bike to a nylon tray. Any conceivable issue with that setup?
