It always seems like the mechanics have the beat up rides with all manner of maintenance put off, and a mish mash of parts keeping the bike on the road. I will admit I am no exception. Even with the Rambler it ends up a test bed for parts and ideas. I have been using the Nitto Mark’s rack for a while with the Velo Orange fenders, and the two have been making all manner of noise, until this week,
Finally taking a few extra minutes to make a bracket, the added support for the front of the fender is a really big deal.
The catch? Now I can hear all the other noises coming from the bike. Most will be an easy fix, nothing that big, but I will put it off, in a couple of weeks the bike will be getting a serious cleaning for the SF bike expo anyway. Until then I get to enjoy the sounds of a bike that sees every day duty,
