Pryme Footstraps

The Pryme Footstraps are now available and ready to ship to your local dealer. New-school foot retention like this has really taken off in the past year, with many finding this method comfortable and strong, able to handle both trick riding, polo and all-around use. The Pryme models are black nylon with reflective edges, available for $30.

    one of them said they couldn’t get them no idea why, probably didn’t see it so that’s as far as they went, so now I have to check with the other

    This is Bullshit design plagarism!!! Imitation is a great complement. Go buy HOLDFAST!! Internet retail has taught us price is everything. So if you’re going to install the Prime Straps on your Mercier or Republic just know that you are not part of modern urban cycling, but merely a customer.

    “So if you’re going to install the Prime Straps on your Mercier or Republic just know that you are not part of modern urban cycling, but merely a customer.”

    Dude, are you 12? My holdfast straps wore out and I did not want to spend $57 + Shipping + wait, so I grabbed the Prymes for $30. They seem to work fine and I support my LOCAL URBAN BIKE SHOP in the proccess….instead of the internet.

    Now I’m afraid to buy some tires because if I buy the wrong kind I don’t know if I’ll still be a part of urban cycling…whatever.

    I’m going riding.

    I went to my other LBS, the guy who’s a racer/coach instead of the Bike/Toy store listed on the Pryme website. He ordered them and set aside a set translucent black pedals he has in stock for me to buy when the straps come in. I feel good about supporting him and I get what I want for a decent price….should have gone to him in the first place but I try to spread my purchases around….I thin I’m gonna stop that practice

    … they look like a complete rip of HOLD FAST straps to me.

    @David: out of curiosity, how long did it take you to wear through your HF straps? i’ve been rocking them for about 6 months as a commuter (half hour ride) and they are basically still brand new.

    Well mine arrived today I followed the installation directions on the Pryme website my first attempt at a skid and they came undone….so I play’d around with them a bit and got them to say put and hold skid after skid. one things for sure I’m going to have to rework my sitting skid technique or learn to stand up skid more

    About six months…the wore out near the pedal shaft. I may not have had paid enough attention to where they were rubbing.

    Good strap – just wore out after a ton of use, normal for anything made of nylon (material).
