Can someone tell me how these custom wrap around rear fenders don't hit the rear tire when a person sits on the bike? I know when I sit my big a$$ on my bike now, it lowers about an inch or so. If I get one of those slim wrap around fenders, where does it attach so it doesn't hit the tire.


Thank you for your patience with my lack of technical knowledge.

I believe they are running tricky air so when it is parked or slow riding they can have the fender slammed on the tire. You just set you fender up so it has just enough clearancefor the tire toturn while the bike is slammed. Then they can just air the cylinder up for riding. I assume this is what you are asking?

Four ways to do it:

Tricky Air (Slam it when parked and raise it up for riding)
Solid Strut (No cushy ride but you get a snugged fender)
Mount the fender to the strut (Creates a gap between the seat and the fender)
Adjustable links with a neoprene stops to limit downward travel.

Pep, do you know how long the neoprene stops should be?

It's something I'm considering but I'm not sure it's ever been done. I'm positive it will work and it sure will be a lot cheaper than a Tricky Air.It's just a matter of determining the best place to locate them.

Thanks everyone for that help. I have decided to try to copy Kouba's fender and seat set up.I will see he if he can tell me his secrets!
