Thanks man. I'll be back to riding again by spring for sure. the GL may take a little longer, I still can only do some things to it until I heal up fully. I am doing physio 2 times a week and the leg is about half way back to full strength. another couple weeks and I may be off the crutches.

So boot mod took 10 mins.  I used rivets to attach to the robber gripons.  It will work great.  I need to come up with a different version for the GL but I got a second gripon to use for that.  This one works for the cx and most other bikes. Coating in plastidip now.

Sweeeeeet.  You should've kept the spikes for kicking dogs and clingy women that try to bite your heels when you're going through the neighborhood.

Yep.  I need to make another one with the metal coming out the front for the GL cause the crash barz and heads get in the way to use the side mounted version
