I think frontier is pretty up front with their products.Its cheap gear at a cheap price.My issue is with companies that sell "northwest river supplies" that are all from mexico and china. A great company that started out of a garage in eugene and then lost its way.

The tee is still on top, so you won't be skewered, but it would still be in your way.

It's just over-engineered. Hard to improve on a simple bent aluminum plate or two aluminum hoops built into the bottom of the seat.

Ok, I see now. Due to the lopro there is a min height that the flip seat rides above your frame. Due to their one size fits all approach they only offer one riser height. And its $70 more than the one i got from clavey. I think some of the other vendors will make them whatever height you require

+1. I like mine from AAA. Simple, and they will make it the height you need.

I like mine, a piece of wood strapped over a cooler. I used to want one, but never found what i wanted. I even went so far as to buy speedrail fittings to make my own, but finally decided to keep it simple.

OK skewer may have been a bit overdramatic. But I would not want to fall on it in the ribs or gut. I'd call it poorly engineered!

cooler

I Just got my 100 Qt from them, damn nice cooler. Great price, I cant see choosing a yeti over this one. We are going to ice test it next to my buddies yeti 110 and see what we come up with. It does say made in USA right on the front.

Hey Orto11,
I'm very interested in one of these 100 qt coolers myself. Would you mind posting the interior and exterior dimensions? Our Sotar cat frame has a slightly raised platform for the cooler in front of the rower's compartment, which I sometimes bang my knuckles on, so height is important to me. Thx

Avatard,
There are more new and fairly detailed pics on their website.
