De-noising your fenders
Anyone have any success in getting rid of the ratting and squeaking from their fenders? I would love to hear what you have to say.
So far, I've used home-made rubber washers from old tubes to go between the strut and the eyelet on the frame and in the brake-bolt mountain hardware. I eventually got some of the leather washers that Velo Orange sells. Other than that I've wrapped some cloth tape (gaffer's tape) around the fender at the point where the rear brake-mount bracket attaches (sks fenders).
Still no dice. On smooth roads they're quite, but smooth roads here are a freakish anomaly. The noise is driving me insane.
For what it's worth, this is a KHS 100 track frame, so clearance is minimal. I can't run fenders with anything larger than a 23mm tire. It's possible that the fenders are rubbing at some other point, maybe against the brake calipers. Who knows. Any help is appreciated.
