Default Re: First MB Point Beach

I have followed the fender failure threads with a lot of interest

This thing gets driven about 4 blocks to the store on Saturdays for now anyway

The controls are just too busy to be safe
With the gear shift where it's at the rear brake lever can only be grabbed naturally with my pointing finger and the clutch lever interferes with a panic stop grab of the front brake

I bought a shimano thumb shifter that I am going to mount under the seat on the post and need to get a dual cable lever to get past the braking issues

I have the brackets to shore up the fender but for now with the limited action it gets it is holding firm and I check it on every ride

Surprisingly it is the rear fender that came unscrewed at the frame

I was going to give this to my son until I started reading about the frame cracking issues with these bikes
