    I'd like to hear what you use for a chest spreader. I like the Maryuamas myself. I'd like to hear what everyone else uses and where online I can get one.

    Thanks

    I'll bump this unanswered post up. After a day of pushing the most brutal hills I have ever seen I need to buy a chest spreader. Any suggestions?

    They are like a broadcast spreader that you wear around your neck and dispense the granular by cranking a handle. They hold a smaller volume but are good for steep hills. They may also have other uses I dont know about.
