That bumper is a beast !! Nice work
I have the TBR Typhon bumper and must say I'm very impressed with it's strength. I've run into a granite rock (hornets distraction) and only have a few scratches. Another time I jumped it right into a big Sugar Maple and it just bounced off like it was a beach-ball. I am curious, though about this RPM bumper you all are talking about. Pics, part number, please? TIA
Here is the RPM bumper, but T-Bone also just made one, that looks much similar. If it's half as good as the Talion Bumper I have on my Kraton then I'll be stocked. The T-Bone I have now has saved me several times. With my new Grave Digger Body, I think the New T-bone will look better. And now that I am a better driver, hopefully I won't need the un-paralleled strength on the T-Bone Basher bumper.
Here is the new T-Bone.
The RPM bumper looks slick, as well.
T-bone just sent me a replacement of the original version....now I'm wishing i had waited a week to get the new version instead.
Just got my New version T-bone in the mail. I'll put it on tonight after a little clean up, and will post some pics ASAP. Looks like it'll do the trick, and like it'll look good doing it.
Sorry it took so long to get pictures, but there was a slight fitment issue that was easily corrected, after a conversation with TBR, Since I got one of the first if not the first one of these ever made, the bend from the bottom plate was not quite enough. TBR looked at my pics, and talked to production to remedy the situation before any more went out. That issue should not be anissue for anyone coming after me.
Anyway, here it is.

This is just outstanding customer service and why I so highly recommend people buying from local and small businesses - they tend to be much more responsive and quick to fix anything wrong and @T-Bone Racing is no exception.
The bumper looks great by the way @dpricenator!
That bumper looks rad, DP! I may have to get one.
My RPM has just snapped an end off after a small nose-dive from about two feet in the air onto soft, post-rain grass!!! Not happy, given RPM's reputation.
The kicker? You can't this part as a spare! Ugh.
I just got one of these in the post.. I assumed the bar bit would be available seperate in case it broke? Pretty crap if its not...
Doesn't RPM have a lifetime warranty ??
How do u keep that K so clean. Tips !! Please ?
They do but the outbound and return postage from/to the UK (not including any import duty that parts from the US attract!) is in the ball-park of a new part. Grrr.
Compressed air line, toothbrush, GT85 and elbow grease. Also, it's not vey old.
Yeah... But the way its made you'd think the bar would be a replacement part as it bolts onto the skid.
Technically it is replaceable but the cost of a return/replacement -for me at least- is prohibitive.
If the TBR doesn't work out (Inc. delivery it's costing me £37/$48!) I'll stick with the remains of my RPM because it's better than the stock 'thing'...
Postage is killer... And exchange rates!
37 pound is 62 aussie dollars!! Ouch!
The GT85 looks pretty cool N don't know if it's a U.K. Thing or if I can get in Aus ?? But I check it out.
Don't worry about postage. With tbone all I did was send a pic of the broken part attached to original email and they where on to it. It came faster than the original. RPM should do the same test them out
Gt85 spray lube stuff... Should be in pushbike shops by the looks of it? Theres a bikeforce 2 units down from my work.. I'll have a look at lunch tomorrow
I'm a bit late to this thread, but I wanted to say that I have the XV4 Kraton bumper from TBR and absolutely love it. It's worth the money you'll spend on it. Very tough and good-looking.
Do have a link for it?
Anything RPM is lifetime warranty. Love mine, contact them.
