Frame Sliders

I hear that the frame sliders that involve fairing cutting are better, if so, how easy is it to drill a 2 inch hole in the fairing without messing it up? Or should I just take it to the shop?

it depends what kind of bike you have.. most of the more modern bikes have holes pre-drilled for frame sliders. Also get plastic sliders so they will wear down when your bike is sliding across the pavement. I have seen people use aluminum sliders and once metal hits the ground and catches something it can grip in and start tossing your bike. just something to think about good luck!

either way the possibility of the bike flipping exists. there are better polymers or whatever than others but some racers dont use sliders.
