GENERAL TOPICS:

Why are you having this sale?

Simply to clear inventory for new & different products.  We produce in large numbers to offer the lowest possible price and, thus, need steel in large quantities.  Almost all west coast steel comes from Asia and the unstable tariff situation makes large raw material purchases not reasonable at this time (Triumph has its frames make in Thailand … but without tariffs).   We have design plans to move forward and we are making steps to increase inventory storage to prepare for expansion.

What is the difference between the MP System and the Triumph mount?

The MP System uses the MCR Mounting Plate for attaching all system accessories while

Triumph uses their "U" dresser rail mount --they are NOT compatible. Accessories for the

MP System attach at the Mounting Plate and also at the shock absorber pivot. Triumph  

accessories also attach at the rear of their mount using the same mounting points. We

could’ve adapted to the Triumph mount but we felt a more robust rear mount combined with

the leverage of a unified front mount provided a stronger attachment.   

Why not chrome instead of stainless steel?

Stainless steel is stronger by dimension and is practically corrosion free.  There are many grades of chromium plating (double, triple, etc.) and a poor plating will rust and corrode without proper care. Also, chrome plating is an environmentally hazardous process (and potentially dangerous to plating workers) that today has many restrictions and regulations making it a fairly expensive alternative. Stainless is indeed more expensive but we feel the advantages outweigh any small cost differential.

Why are the tube ends open?

Because stainless steel gets its anti-corrosion properties from exposure to oxygen (air).
