Re: hello from knoxville
Hey welcome to the forum glad ya joined us! lots of good info here and people that will help. 16 spoke rear wheel sounds pretty weak, may not be strong enough. 36 spoke would be ideal. The rubber pieces protect your spokes put them at the spokes. They will conform to the spokes and protect them. Sprocket, rubber , rubber, then the two or three curved metal pieces [depending on your clamshell set up 6mm, or 8mm] go next then bolt it up. Extra care needs to go to tightening it even. Take your time, they do work well! Never used a 16 spoke wheel someone here will know......
Still gotta have a since of humor.
