Voile should offer you some kind of sponsorship. You mentioned these straps in a ride report about 5 years ago and that's all I ever use now. These things are indestructible.

I think I watched your video of the Pete King Trail about 500 times. The Tour evolves each year and for 2012 this trail wasn't included. I found other single track to get into trouble on.
