Title pretty much says it all. I'm sick of going through straps every 6 months. The worst thing is that, when straps break, it's NEVER in a low-key situation. It always results in near death, when you're skidding the hardest because a cop car just pulled in front of you or something.
So it's basically 15 bucks for unlaminated that last 6 months. Do laminated, which cost about 50 bucks, last for 2 years? This is with daily, part-time messenger, all weather use.
