    more mudguards

    been busy at work today ! - made my mudguards up

    trials guards from sammy miller in UK

    cut the "flap " off the one for front, pinched in the rear

    would like more clearance on the rear - but thats not gonna happen with a nate in there







    will have to see if they clog up too much, but sure seem good when i rode though some puddles earlier at work

    Are those front guards? Look slimmer than mine and less hassle to fit.

    I went for the wider set to be sure of completely covering the tyre, but there's not enough room for BFLs with mine, so I'm having to redo them.

    How wide are they? A front or rear end pic would be great.

    think they are fronts - but got them from the link you sent me?

    front ive just drilled 4 holes in and cable tied to top of fork = will see if it holds up without additional support

    rear is just drilled and bolted at bottom, and at chainstay bridge and aluminium stay wraps round and riveted on

    will get front and above pick tomorrow

    Another "how wide" question.

    Bike arrives this week, so I need to consider mudguards asap :-)

    at the seatstay/forkblade or elsewhere?

    in looking at your fenders, it appears to me that trimming them instead of pinching them would work better.

    Ok that means they are fronts.

    Didn't want to trim so that I could retain the strength of the U-section. Trimming would have resulted in a flat section at the choke points. However it may be the only way to make them fit with BFLs, and I can get round any potential weakening problem by adding another set of stays.

    Think I might get a set of those - look wide enough for Larrys & Nates, so I'll stick them on the 907 and put the others back on the Pug.

    For once I think you all have the fat advantage. I can't find anybody in the US that has these. I may check into what it costs to have them shipped over. Could one of you please post a link to the exact fender and which might be the best vendor to talk to about shipping?
    Thanks ahead of time.

    here you go

    Universal Front Mudguard

    at least if you can buy them direct you will save the 20% VAT (like sales tax)

    Hmmm - I wonder if the Universal rear guard would work out to have better coverage for the rear wheel. I might call them for some measurements.

    That's what I'm using at the moment.

    Did the same about a couple of years ago now and can say they are very hard-wearing. Have contacted a few serious branches and no damage other than a few scratches. the longer rear is two spliced together.

    They would have been nearly twice as much ordering from the US so I just bought the last 3 black ones from Sammy Miller. Hope they show up. I'll put together a set up much like Gary's. In fact our Pugsleys will nearly be twins.
    Thanks for your help.
