    honjo fenders w/ bikeisland's jury chrome: y/n?

    do these fenders:
    http://www.velo-orange.com/ho35smfe.html
    fit this bike:
    http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_S...ls&ProdID=1183

    circle, yes or no

    ed: i see there's a chainstay "bridge" which i don't mind drilling; this is a question of fit/clearance. i can make everything else work if necessary.

    no, but it's got fender mounts, and can accommodate really big tires, yeah? So i would think so. The Bike Direct dude seems to be on here a lot. You should get a hold of him.

    Wider tires/rims

    Couldn't find it on the website, but a lot of the posts & threads about this frame say that it can.

    It seems like the Jury compares to the Steamroller, so I don't see why fenders would be an issue. The description for the Honjo's say they're made for bikes with minimal fender clearances, which does not seem to be the case with the Jury.

    Unless you are fixed on Honjo mudguards, you could buy the Velo Orange own brand ones. They look pretty nice too. Another pretty mudguard is the Berthoud stainless model. Go mudguards!

    they don't come as small. 35mm is a great size for 25mm tires.

    I hope you build a townie with the honjos. I'm thinking of doing that for the girlfriend.

    I honestly have no idea if they will fit but if they do it will
    be a classy build. Thought of the hammertone honjos?

    Call Hiroshi at Jitensha Studio if you have questions about which
    Honjos will fit--he can probably help.

    i'm going to go with the smaller 35mm. i have a set atm; i'm hoping they'll transfer to the jury without too much re-drilling.

    no such luck (i think, anyway-- depends on your definition of townie).

    going to go with mostly super shiny aluminum or chrome-- including the risers.

    sorry.

    Yes. A 70mm-90mm brake reach requirement means that you should have plenty of clearance. It will look like this when it is done, minus the gearing if that is your direction:

    don't get too excited... i'll post pics just because, but remember-- this is still a beater. the bling will be few and far between (though there will be a few out of the ordinary components going on-- and lots of shiny).

    FYI: If the fender is a bit wide where it sits between the chain stays just cut it to fit with some tin snips and remember to file the edges so they don't scratch the frame. Also using cork or rubber washers for the fender install helps keep the rattling to a minimum. Beater or not it will be a fun build and fun ride. Good luck.

    i'm assuming it will, but does anyone know if this will work on the jury's fork w/ a 700c rim?
