Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

SKS fender securi-clips with Freddy?

I'm trying to setup a rear fender on a bike with track ends, and I already have a set of Planet Bike Freddy hardcores. As has been pointed out in previous posts, removing the rear wheel gets ugly with permanent fenders and track ends. One suggested solution was the "break-away" mount used on SKS front fenders. Does anyone know for certain whether these clips also work for rear SKS fenders? And whether they would also work with Bike Planet Freddy fenders? I suppose I could always resort to wing nuts for easy release of the fender arms, but that might even be too cheesy for my low standards.

I'm pretty sure you can use the securi-clip release on the rear SKS fenders.

using them with the Freedy fenders would require some modificatin' seeing as the stays on the SKS's and Freddy's are completely different. Dunno if you could use the SKS rear stays on the freddy's though.
whatever you do, post your results because i'm interested in your results.

I use the SKS with the safety mount on the rear- same install as for the front. It makes the fender rattle a little bit more, but you can pop them in and out when you need to remove the wheel.
I think the freddy hardcore fenders might work with these mounts- try going to a friendly LBS. They usually have a bucket of fender mounting parts sitting around in the back somewhere. Stick a couple of the plastic parts on the end of the fenders, and see if they work.
