Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!
One thing everyone needs to realize is this has happened many, many times to even the most experienced of riders, and builders. Tom is a good example, but certainly not the only one by any means. Just because it hasn't happened to you, don't get on a high horse, like you're smarter than everyone else, because the truth is, you've just been lucky.
Vibration is the common denominator. Not where the bike came from, not the price of the bike, not poor workmanship, not negligence on the riders part.
