    Best Mudguards for 20inch wheels? Dahon MU SL

    Hey all, as above i'm looking for some mudguards. Can anyone advise me of the best quality/looking ones for my bike? I have scwalbe kojak tires.

    Another quick question if you've owned an MU SL...how do you find hill starts? A few times when i've pushed off on a hill i lose control as the bike wants to wheelie. I'm new to smaller bikes and this bike is very light, so has anyone got any advice on the best way to counteract this? Stand up leaning forwards?

    Thanks very much for your time and help
    Olly

    there are a few companies hand making some out of hardwood..

    SKS and Planet Bike both offer a 20" broken up to an each , for the Recumbent market,
    so 1 of each size is sold, if the wheels are different.

    I have SKS fenders (mudguards) on my Mu SL and like them very much. They fit fine with the Kojaks. My Mu came with short arm V brakes and these had to be changed to long arm V brakes to accomodate the height of the fender. You get used to (and enjoy) the lightness of the bike, and so far I have had no problems on hills. I added a lightweight rear rack, Ergon GC2 grips and bar ends, and a Brooks B17 saddle but it is still very light, and I love it.
