    Need new cages

    I snapped my Soma Quad gate cages in a lil under a year, just wondering if there are any good recommendations.
    They say that Obama could be my president but really InI don't care
    They say Biden makes my decisions but he don't, so I'm just not there
    and I'm gonna see the same lies coming in the next 4 years,
    So pardon me if I don't cry when your election goes the way it did

    More flexible, so they are less likely to sheer off like metal. And they are mad cheap so you won't get pissed when you snap these ones.

    That being said, I would just get some more metal ones because they are stronger and hold on to your toes better. Technically the strap is what holds your foot but, to me, metal clips seem to feel better when you pull up.

    Good point, I guess I ride back down to the LBS and snag those plastic ones they got then.
