Purchased a pair of the Ride EX Frankens and I love the bindings. I get compliments on them all the time, but I do have one gripe.
The gummy mesh on the toecap has started to rip apart after only 4 days of riding. Given, I crank down on them pretty good as I like a nice, tight fit. Maybe I got a fluke pair. Time will tell as I am having them replaced.
Sadly, Dogfunk either wants me to drop another $160 on a set so they can send me a second pair and then refund me the money after they get the original pair back. As a long-time customer of Dogfunk, I was pretty surprised that they actually asked me to spend more money. The other option was to send in my broken pair 1st, but then I have nothing to ride on until I receive the new ones.
I am now contacting RIDE in hopes that they will send me out some new toe-caps ASAP. Sorry Dogfunk, I love yall, but you let me down on this one.
