Default Got a question about the XC hard bags...

Are the OEM hinges made from metal, or plastic? I got a pair of Mutazu hard bags for my XR, and the hinges on them are plastic. Seems odd to me, but want to check with someone who owns the real things. If the OEM ones are metal, I'll start hunting down a pair.

I point cameras at interesting things, and perform unspeakable acts on innocent computer code.

Oh, and I enjoy getting lost on backcountry roads.

OEM hinges are metal in chrome or powder coat. Same for Kuryakyn discontinued hinges. The clones of Kuryakyn hinges on eBay are plastic. No idea if those hold up at all. OEM hinges are NOT crazy expensive.
