Default Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!

couple weeks ago I bought a bike which had only a coaster brake when the kid rode down a really long, really steep hill - he pushed the front forks right back to the frame & broke the aluminum quill (first time in 50 years, I got to use that huge extractor in the 'ace extractor set' getting that mashed aluminum piece out of the stem)

replaced fork with v-brake fork & quill with steel
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
