SpokePOV survived the rain and the playa. (photo proof)

by chuckt on Thu Sep 16, 2010 5:39 pm

I wanted to share my experience using the SpokePOVs in what would be considerd "harsh" conditions.

They not only survived 12 days, 2 rain storms and masses of playa dust, but worked like champs- all 6 on my BurningMan bike. Photos that it actually happened are attached :)

Thanks All!

Chuck

Hi Slip-

I actually didn't waterproof them.

While I didn't ride directly through puddles, they definitely got rained on twice then blasted with dust.

There are images- click on the links :wink:
