I saw they sell them also, but from what Jeremy Harris has been finding out, they seem to be the same company as BMS. I'd prefer to buy from an ES forum member like yourself, if you're interested that is!
I haven't ordered yet, and that is good advice, 2808 seems like it would be far better suited! Almost no hills around where I ride. 25mph is probably the max speed I'd want anyway with such skinny tires and no suspension.
Hey guys, build two here! Lightweight Norco Beretta from the early 80's I think. All steel frame from my magnet testing! My only worry is the small diameter seat and chain stays and the dropouts. I know dropouts can be strengthened but I'm really worried about the seat and chain stays. I've included...
Hey MadRhino, do you have any problems with the rear fender mount not being stiff enough and hitting your rear tire? I used the thickest coat hangers I could find but the entire rear fender wobbles like mad.
If you go the 18" route don't expect to use the bike offroad ever. Pedal hits are the norm with the 18" rim. I'm running 26" hookworms for commuting and 2.5 Maxxis for offroad - both run with DH tubes and I have yet to get a pinch flat. I top out at about 45mph with my HS3540.
Philistine, it looks like the one with the flap is the front fender. It looks as if the fenders on his bike are mounted with those flaps facing foward (had they not been cut off as he mentioned in his post)
Hey guys, I've been looking for a while for a full coverage large fender, similar to the a2b metro style. I'm running 26" x 2.5 hookworms on a DH Comp. I haven't been able to find squat, has anyone else had any luck in looking for something similar?
