  1. 42 mm tires and 52 mm VO fenders.

    42 mm tires and 52 mm VO fenders.
  2. How do you troubleshoot fender rub effectively?

    I have a Salsa Vaya with VO hammered fenders on it and stock tires, and there is a little bit of rub on the rear tire all the time the tire spins. Even my bike shop's service tech didn't quite fix...

    Thanks. I am now officially convinced the 42 mm tires that came stock just don't work with the VO hammered alloy fenders. Despite getting very close with fine tuning, I could not get a configuration...

    What size tires do you run on your Vaya? I am thinking the 42 mm tires on mine are only just barely VO compatible, and only if you "hold your mouth right" (that's some kind of old timey mechanic's...

    Oh, I was afraid the threads would bite into the crown a bit. But not so? Thanks for the tip!

    Got the daruma bolt and it looks great; however it occurred to me that I need a "faux brake bolt" to mount it to. I measured and I need something with mounted dimensions of about 5.5 mm dia. by 30 mm...

    Hm, no. But the LBS ordered and installed them. I wish they had told me they had it when I complained about the noises from the front fender, but they just told me to live with it as is, basically.

    Thanks. Any reason not to try a daruma bolt first? The reason I ask is I've already ordered one from VO, so I'd have to cancel the order at this point if I'm going to make a change of plans.

    Thanks MHM. That setup is remarkably similar to how my LBS did it (L bracket attached to the back of the crown, though it was hidden inside) except there was no front stay/bracket to keep the fender...

    If anyone can recommend an appropriate daruma bolt for the Vaya fork I can probably take it from there.

    It wasn't that the fenders are too small, I am familiar with how that is. In this case the front fender had too much freedom to move around starting at the fork crown. Looking at the VO instructions...

    Fenders for Salsa Vaya

    I was really disappointed in the performance of VO hammered alloy fenders on the front of my Salsa Vaya. The front fender rubbed the tire and make vibrational noises when braking despite trying to...

    Thanks! It was a blast on the way to and from work. It could have been a fluke, but I got to work about 8 minutes faster than normal and home about 14 minutes faster. *shrug* Hopefully it's a trend...

    Well, I took a 2015 Vaya 3 for a long test ride today and then... I took it home. :) It was on sale because of the model year switch, which was the final push needed. I did ultimately feel like the...

    Yes.



    So I would bring the ends of the bars closer to the ground or closer to my head? Am I trying to correct a wrist angle so it is more neutral in doing this?

    Thanks for the replies so far... The diversity of opinions is amazing (in both good and bad ways). I wish I could just hire a bike for a day to try it out on my commute. It's not something my LBS...
