The light will probably be fine. I've run dyno lights without mudguards for months on two different bikes without any problem (and these bikes have definitely seen their fair shares of rain). Lights were one B+M Luxos IQ2 and one B+M Cyo T thing.
I’m going to black rattle-can one of those shorties. My light is an IQ-XS. I’ve heard some not-great stories about B&M lights and water.
Genuinely impressed. A full suite of accompanying pics wouldn't go amiss!
That’s very kind of you to offer but I’m not a huge fan of the way the stays look (if it’s the model I’m thinking of).
A couple of snaps
First set for free, rest pay per view... 700x32 with 650x58 fenders.
Would you make adjustments to the guards when swapping to the 650b wheels? It doesn't look nearly as gappy as I thought it would
Solid flap game.
Where did you get your safety pizza from?
Got a link to those mudguards? I need to get my Tripster kitted out for winter commuting will be running 700x35.
They're Velo Orange ones
Yeah realised they were Velo Orange I wasn't sure on the exact model as originally I could only find silver ones in that size but assume they must be these ones
Having recent fitted some velo orange and some simworks/honjos, I've had enough of mudguard fitting for a while. The honjos are just lovely, but a pain to fit as they are not drilled anywhere. The VOs were pretty easy to fit but I can definitely see the quality difference compared the honjo or my old GBs.
It this setup/fitting a human currently or work in progress? That SMP is very nose-down.
Those be the ones.
With those 650b guards and 700c wheels, what do you estimate the max tire size that'll fit is?
I'm looking for a guard for some 36mm exposures on my tripster for winter duties.
I'm toying with either PDW City Guards, those Velo Orange ones or the Kinesis Fend Off Wide ones
Shop seems to be back up now.
It's actually more gappy with the 650s cos the bridges are quite high or the bridge attachments not long enough.
I can't fit 38s underneath. If that's any help.
Ha. Photo is on a slope which might be making it look worst, but probably could come up a bit.
I wouldn’t recommend these (from previous page). Mine look like they’ve been riveted by a drunk toddler. Nothing against drunk toddlers.
