MUDGUARD - SCHLUMPF – ROHLOFF
Mudguard - Mud flap (fender) Modifications. (Last Pic unpainted)
Pic's also show Schlumpf drive on front. This is the "High Speed" with a 1:1 and a 2.5 : 1
Rohloff shows OEM2 fixture The "Cat" has been designed for this fitting.
No special tools
"workbench" on top of my "recycle and rubbish bins"
Alumininum Strip(s) is exactly same as short piece that is standard. Cost $AUD4.00 each
$2.00 "Plant Pot"
$5.95 can of "satin" black spray paint
$0.05 Alloy Rivits
$1.20 worth of "washers"
Roughly same weight when finished
So strong you can sit on them
CUT UP A PLANT POT....
Buy some alluminium strips, same as what came with the bike
Bend them to shape....
Rivit them on and paint them
Bit of a bend here - not too difficult - we re-produced it three more times for two bikes...
Strong as... and just as light.....
Easy to paint....
A few tools.... :-)
An unpaited bit being fitted for check purposes...
The extra comfort is great - and still on two years into our cycling trip... Aug 2008.
Not too ugly for the comfort gained....
Schlumpf - note the gear change button - I lost one after about 18 months or so :-) They gave a new one FREE
Rolhoff with cables in the non prefered position - no trouble in 22 months of VERY rough cycling.
We adjusted the tension after this picture....... Hope the pics help someone...
