Hi TWD Owners – this is the same TWD bicycle girl ramp fix that T7 had been making but just hasn’t had time to do.
So the good news is T7 has passed this fix on to me to provide to the community.

I will be starting a waitlist for those of you interested in this mod, PM me to be added.

The fix will make the ramp less steep, and improve smoothness while reducing rejects.

The price is $30 including shipping in the US, or $38 shipped outside the US.

I can’t edit the waitlist below anymore, so I will be periodically posting the waitlist.

What exactly does this mod consist of? - sorry I'm not familiar with it.

#4 5 months ago

It extends the ramp flap on the Bicycle girl ramp - making the ramp less steep.
This results in less rejects and better "flow".

#5 5 months ago

the bicycle girl ramp? any photos ? Thanks

Here’s a video and picture of the mod

Does it still work well with a cliffy in that area?

Yes - it works fine with or without a Cliffy.

#9 5 months ago

Ok sign me up, first customer of the day.

#10 5 months ago

Sure. I'll take one

#11 5 months ago

Me too, PM sent

Is this attached to the ramp or stuck on the playfield

#14 5 months ago
Quoted from embryon:

It attaches to the ramp, which makes the ramp less steep. If it attached to the playfield it would be in the way when Bicycle Girl mode is active.

#15 5 months ago

So this is just a piece of spring steel with an adhesive pad to stick under the original flap and hopefully some padding underneath to protect the PF?

Mine already feels smooth (not *quite* as smooth as the plain pro ramp obviously) so I wonder if need to blow 30 bucks.

#16 5 months ago

Put me down for one.

How is this different than what cliffy offers? I had a cliffy protector on and it shot well.

Quoted from Lermods:

Cliffy offers a playfield protector -- which sits flat on the playfield to protect it from the ramp when it drops down.
The Cliffy doesn't do anything to make the ramp easier, it's only for protection.

This mod attaches to the lifting section of the BG Ramp -- making the ramp longer, and changing the angle of the ramp to be less steep. It also provides a bit of flex so when the ball initially hits the ramp there is a cushioning effect. This helps alleviate the "rattle" that occurs in the original design. The end result is a smoother ramp with far less rejects. Check out the video in post #6.

This mod will likely make a bigger difference in game play than most. Check out the video in Post #6 and compare the ramp smoothness to what you currently have. Is it worth $30 to make your $7,000 game play better?

#21 5 months ago

I have one of these on my TWD and am very happy with the results. Thanks T7 and PinballModGal for this

Mine doesn't rattle and doesn't seem too steep for me. It also doesn't seem to reject many, if any, decently aimed shots.

But I noticed you mentioned "easier" in your earlier post so I suspect this is a lot of the appeal. Can't fault anyone for that

#23 5 months ago

I’ll take one also... PM incoming!!

#24 5 months ago

Would love one. PM sent.

#25 5 months ago

I'd also love one of these mods. PM sent. Thanks!

Yes, if you refer to the waitlist above you’ll see that the first batch of mods were sent out last Monday, including yours, though it may take a few extra days as you are located in Canada. If you have any issues with shipment please message me directly and we will resolve it.

To follow up, I filed a claim with PayPal. They could not reach her either, so my money has been refunded.

So since this ended up being a scam and the OP is MIA, any chance T7 or anyone else will have these available again?
