    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it they give you wood, then maybe going against the grain is okay.

    It leaves me wondering if I'd be a sap to buy a set.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims 80's vintage 32 or 36
    Salsa or similar stem. 1" threadless. 120 with rise.

    Don't be an ash.

    I'm knot sure those would ever be very poplar . Though they might look nice on a stumpjumper with a set of woodchipper bars and maybe a woodman seatclamp.

    Not sure I saw that one coming. Will we ever get board with this?

    As this has gone off-topic, is it considered VRC "treeson"?

    Oakay, Oakay...I'll lumber here no more,,,,....One last thing to Sprout off about,:

    is it considered VRC "treeson"

    If one waits for the rings to form, season after season, in 50 rings, drawn only by coring, These fenders would not be chucked by any self respecting pedalist Woodchucker...

    And I ain't no Burl y Man that will whisper in the winds...(like the Pines)

    Oakay?

    Treeson? only if we lose sight of the forest for the trees---

    ....... but I reckon our glade is still rooted in the VRC woods.
    the bike is, after all, a TIMBER COMP!
