Forgot to mention one important design feature!!

Consider making a quick release for the front fender brace. I made one that snaps free if road debris becomes lodged between the tire and fender. The original edition didn't have that, got a stick in there that compressed the fender....splintered it, and sent schrapnel into my leg. There's a thread in the over 50 section showing the damage to fender and leg. Consider a release of some sort for that brace. It also may save you from going out the front window should the same event occur.
