    Are you referring to the TruXport tonneau cover, or the Yakima tailgate pad?

    The TruXport velcro is rock solid, but it's true that the Yaklima pad doesn't have the best velcro on the flap. I personally don't worry about it much, though, because I fold and tuck the flap up to unblock the back-up camera. I also use a 1up hitch and/or roof rack for longer road trips, so I don't have any experience with the pad on the highway for extended periods.

    I don't personally have any complaints about the Yakima. :notsure:

    Sorry, I meant the tailgate pad. That particular pad gets really good reviews on fit and placement, however a lot of reviews complaint about the Velcro not sticking after only a few months.

    Sorry man, that’s (more than likely) toast. You can get it repaired, and it’ll be good to go. But, if you fix it and try to move it, you’re going to take a hit...

    @backcountryj, what @abacall said. That thing is done. If you're the original owner i would recommend a crash replacement through trek. Should be less than a grand(700ish) and then you've either got a new frame to keep and ride or sell at a better price than a repaired one. I broke a Devinci in 2018, crash replacement since it too met its demise because a rock strike. I received a new front and rear triangle for i think $600 and then i turned around and sold the entire bike for top dollar.

    Yea I’m gonna look into the costs of getting it repaired. But with no intentions of being able to sell afterward. That would simply be a route of least short term investment and prolonging my time on this frame.
    I’m kinda looking at it as a forced opportunity to get a new (or new to me) frame/bike. Certainly would have preferred different circumstance but that’s life.
    Sadly I bought it used, so the costs are fully on me. My wife is pretty cool so it’s likely she’ll let me dip into our tax return a little, assuming we get a return rather than owe :notsure:

    You’ve got a good foundation going, get a frame. Great time of year too, lots of options at low cost.

    I’m sure you could get that frame repaired for $200-300. Might not look as pretty, but will be as good as it was.

    Planning to look into repairs, but truthfully I was looking to change things up.

    The professional repairs can be quite good, but I personally would never fully trust the frame again. Hang it on the wall and get something different for piece of mind if anything.

    Guess I should post over here too....

    Picked up a 2020 Specialized Stumpjumper 29er Saturday! Got to get out and ride it yesterday and had an absolute blast.

    I need some new pedals for it though, any recommendations? I don't feel like I need to drop more than 50$ on a set of pedals, but let me know what you guys run! Thanks!

    Is that the comp? Mine did not come with butchers. I have been looking at crank bros for about $50. I been riding spank platfrom pedals but those run $120. Alloy and super sticky.

    This is a fallacy. Due to the nature of carbon fiber oftentimes the repairs become the strongest part of the frame (and as a result can change the riding characteristics of the bike-but thats more roadie related).

    Just grab some plastic composite pedals from your shop. They last forever for most riders and should be about ~$60. Ride on!

    $40 at REI right now and don’t have that spindle hump (I think that is what it is called) like some other pedals.

    Mine is the Spec model. Online it’s just called the stumpjumper 29. Not the comp.

    Ok so you guys don’t try to avoid the composites? I’ll gladly grab some from the shop when I go get my helmet Thursday just didn’t know if you all recommended aluminum or what

    These are great pedals. I switch between these and the xt shimano.

    Chester grip pretty well.

    yes aluminum is much better in every way but not $50- typically minimum $100 for a set of quality alloy pedals. You would be fine riding composites at your skill level. Basically two versions: thicker pedals (more rock strikes) with no spindle "hump" or thinner pedal with the "hump." Personal preference as I have never been able to really even feel the spindle "hump"

    I’m currently running some crankbrothers stamp 2 larges. The smalls are more like “regular” and the larges should be called “xL”
