PL XR vs Flexi buggy?


OK, OK, I hate to bring up another "which one is better" thread, but I am gonna do it anyway... I am a big guy, 6'3" and 220 punds. I have a Libre for speed runs, but want to do a little freestyle (no jumping, just 2-wheels and spins) again. So which would you go for, since price is so little difference? Any advice or info appreciated!

From everything I've read the last 3 months while trying to choose which buggy will be my first. The Flexi is equal to the PL Comp (Both are stainlesss and 12mm rear axle bolts). The PL Comp XR is an upgraded PL Comp (beefed up side rails and 15mm rear axle bolts). The PL Comp XR+ is an upgraded PL Comp XR (20mm rear axle bolts). Hope that helps.

Howdy Buggy-Bretheren,

From a purely practical perspective, the distinctions between the two are limited to the fact the Flexi buggy bolts the siderails to the axle while the PL uses a slip-fit. Both work just fine. The Flexi is quieter.
The siderails on the Flexi buggy are bent just a bit differently so they're a bit wider. Only an issue to a couple of my fat-ass friends.
Some like the bent foot-pegs on the Flexi, some don't.
Both have comfortable seats with back support built-in.


Safen Up! Buggy On!

I do ride flexi and I"m 210lb.Have to say that I buggy often and I don't have any problems,I had custom my axel just in case.I heard that it could bend if jumping.About PL I heard good and bad word so don't want to judge because I haven't ride one.Maybe You should try both on lake and decide what fit You better.
