    SKS Alleycat Breakaway System .. Yay! or maybe nay?

    How does the breakaway system work on the SKS Alleycat Fenders?

    I was on the way to school this morning and I ran over some grubby fall foliage .. kicked up a decent sized twig the thickness of a fat Sharpie and heard a *Twang*.

    Went about a mile when i started hearing springy vibration and I thought it was my u-lock rattling on my rack and I looked down and one of the struts on my front fender had disconnected from the fender. But it was missing the nut that holds the strut to the fender ...

    I thought the break away was the rubber connection between the lower strut and fork?

    It is, if the nuts are fully tightened.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.
