    Default Offset Bushings.

    Hello esteemed colleagues,

    I am looking at getting some offset bushings for my Sight. Ideally trying to solve some handling issues with my bike.

    Has anyone used them and where did you get them from ?

    I recently had to custom order new hardware for my Commencal Meta from www.offsetbushings.com.
    Ironically enough I just got standard ones and not offset ones, but can vouch for their quality. Everything is machined to order so they should be able to sort you out with what you need.

    As far as feedback about offset bushing themselves, can't help too much there.

    29 including shipping, not sure if it's more for the offset ones though.

    Tried a set from Offset bushings. Quality of the parts is really good and low cost so worth a shot.

    Preferred the bike's stock geometry so only used them for around 3 weeks and went back to stock.

    On every bike I own. Highly recommended. The ones above, burgtech or pro shock ones are all good. I use mainly pro shock.

    I had some on the Fury when I owned it. Maybe Nerf sold them? I cannot remember but they were great.

    Actually no, I had an offset headset thingy.

    I picked up a pair off offset bushings from www.offsetbushings.com and can vouch for the quality. transforms the bike completely, well for me it did. I feel 100% more comfortable jumping and plowing down steep rocky sections.

    They are so good that I've recommended two of my mates to get them.

    I paid roughly about $60 AUD for them. The guys from Offsetbushings.com are wonderful and easy to deal with. For the price I cant recommend them enough.
