Ok. I need to replace one of my frame sliders. I have the Lockart Phillips ones now. I am not into the BLING BLING Glow in the dark factor. I want ones that work.

WHich ones do you all suggest? I see the Vortex ones. Everyone sells them. The only thing I dont like about them is that they are pretty thin on the base because they are two piece and I didnt think that they would be as strong as the Lockhart Phillips ones. I also want No-cut frame sliders! There the age old debate that they arent as strong...

Any recommendations? Where can I buy the Lockhart Phillips ones?!

No cut frame sliders are worthless, IMHO. The ones I've seen use a metal bracket that bolts into the engine mount bolt, then a frame slider bolts to the bracket. If the bike does down hard, its going to break that metal bracket and the slider is just going to rip off.

Only get the ones that go directly into the engine mount hole.... just my .02.

I use Vortex since the plastic part is replacable when it grinds down - no need to buy the puck/etc again if you're lucky with a simple lowside that grinds down the slider.

The result of a Vortex two-piece slider. I'll take a broken bracket over a broken frame any day. Get one-piece all nylon sliders
