I started using tire warmers from Bickle Racing, made in Canada, & love them. Can't see not using them now. I'll be at MSR Houston this weekend. I've got several left for $325.

I like em cuz I can haul immediately. And I think they turn 1 track day into 1 heat cycle instead of like 7, which potentially, in theory, prolongs teh life of the tire and a whole bunch of other I dont know.

I just like em cuz I can jump out on the peeps that dont have em.

BTW, I have suzuka single temps. Cuz they were cheap. They work fine.

Im on first set of warmers, so i have nothing to compare to for past experience or products. That said, i bought the dual temp Woodcrafts and they have seemed a quality product so far. I guess a "warmer is a warmer" but there are 2 features on these i have really liked over most others:

1)The "side skirts" that covers the wheels to some degree and protect great on windy days & 2)The safety feature of the extra male and female plug when you put them on and take them off, allows you to not worry about leaving them plugged in and burning them up when going out for a session.

The Woodcrafts really look like great warmers. Mr. Whoopie uses those as well. I think the skirts help to keep the wheels warm in addition to the rubber.

I'm interested in a set of these - was just about to order them. Are you a distributor? i.e. do I still get service/warranty? sizes available, single temp, dual or?
Is that out the door price? Thanks!
