    T2 owners - check your arms and forks

    I've had a T2 for a couple of years and am continually impressed by the ease and speed of loading and unloading bikes (29er, 20er). I recently noticed a scratch on my fork upper (since I have an inverted fork) and found the offending scratch on the T2 arm.

    Since the 29er wheel is larger, I've found I needed to snug the arm as close to the fork as possible to keep the arm from dropping over the top of the wheel, to the front of the bike, leading to the dreaded 'dragging the bike down the road' sound. In doing so, the non-foam covered corner of the arm made contact with the fork and wore the paint (blurry leg of the fork, circled). A trip to the autoparts store cured the scratch and we're back in business but watch out!

    I don't have that problem with my 29" bike and my T2. Maybe a larger tire size?
