1x1, brakes, fender clearance, ?
howdy all, looking for anyone who has any experience with putting fenders on a Surly 1x1 frame. I'm putting a disc brake in front, but the rear is getting rim brakes -- I intend on putting useful fenders on this ride - probably Planet Bike Freddy's... my experience in the past is that the v-brakes seem to have clearance issues with fenders - so I'm thinking of going with canti-brakes in the back. So, two questions really - anyone have any knowledge of v-brakes interfering with fenders (or vice-versa really)... secondly if I go with the canti's in the back and the discs in the front -- anyone think I'll be able to go with the same type of levers? Or will I need to mix-n-match (ick)... thanks for any input etc...
