Hi Arrow. And a warm welcome from just down the road.
(Actually, not so warm today. It's freezing again here). The BikeQuip flip screen is good. Is yours a motorised screen adjustment, or does it need a spanner ?
Hi John, Its Richard (Arrow) in Leeds. Firstly congrat's on the MOTM award. My screen is the electric one. Which size of screen do you have (wide or extra wide, 20" or 21" high) and does it remove the terrible turbulent buffeting on the back of your head? I am 6'3" so sit quite high but dont like to look through the screen as it gives a distorted view.Many thanks.

Size - I don't know - the options available now are different from what they were then - It isn't the extra wide version, because that came out after I had bought mine. You'll have to estimate from the photos that I posted on this forum here. I'm sure I went for the taller version at the time. But whether it matches the 20" or 21" I don't know. The photos show the BikeQuip screen fitted, and the OEM screen loosely rested on top of it and supported by tape, so a direct comparison can be made. It looks a couple of inches taller than the original. If I get chance I'll measure it and post back - but we have family around and a busy few days - I may not get onto the computer.
I get no buffeting. The airflow flips over the top of my helmet (the original screen directed the airflow straight into my eyes). I'm 6'4" and like to look over the top of the screen. I generally ride with the visor up. There is plenty of movement on the adjuster to lift this screen way up high, and it will drop down so that my face is in the air flow. Riding in the heat in Spain, I sometimes wonder if the slightly shorter screen would have been better, but the flip up isn't as good - so I think I made the correct choice.
