You're ahead of me by six. If they're still in there when they get here I'll replace them with one of my skip tooth chainrings.

And it was a far worse offense, if you were foolish enough to wear them with white socks.

Nice frame geometry, but the saddle angle is "special"

Beautiful!

I'm going to need close up pictures, with measurements of the decals if you could.

And for the front as well. I actually use below creation on pretty much all of my MTBs, does a great job of keeping mud and sand out of headset. Especially clear to see when I take bikes with and without them for maintenance
Mucky Nutz Face Fender XL Mudguard - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available


In combination with downtube mud catcher simple clip on at the back makes long rides on muddy roads way more enjoyable. Full fenders on my Krampus in pic below would be just packed with mud in no time. Missus's 1x1 was OK as she has Fat Franks and they are not knobbies, shed the mud pretty good without packing under fenders

Nope. I figured, these things are crap, they're in a box of crap, I will leave well enough alone. Someone else's problem.

Whoever it is, who took them out, well...:
You, Sir, have a problem.

Standard issue Weinmann Inoxydable short mudguards on the 75 Grand Prix.
Replaced with Weinmann Inoxydable full size mudguards so I could ride in the rain.

I just added chrome shorties to a circa 1994 Mongoose Sycamore along with an LED bullet light up front -- and am about to add a chrome Wald rear rack and riser handlebar. As a mountain bike, its a a mixed metaphor, for sure, but its my mixed metaphor. Now... the reflectors... they have to go!
