sks fenders and tubus racks, hmmm....
okay, i've finally started adding all my stuff to my trek 520. new brooks, tires and pump went on without a hitch. but now i'm having problems with the fenders and racks. the rear rack seemed to go on fine, but the little bars on the cargo that are moveable seem to be too long. tubus suggests I cut them with a hacksaw. is this really what everyone does?
but the real problem is with the tara. the top part of the fork isn't threaded so i bought a couple bolts and wingnuts. is this what everyone else did to fix the problem? also, the bottom eyelets seem to be just barely too small for the screws that came with the tara, did everyone else just go out and buy some smaller ones?
also, with the SKS fenders, maybe I accidentally threw away the instructions and any sort of mounting equipment (all i've got are the fenders themselves and the two sets of metal V-shaped bars), but for the life of me I can't figure out how on earth to mount these guys. anyone got any tips here?
