The rack comes friday, so I'll post the name then, I don't remember what it's called. As for fenders I'm still undecided, but I like some of the sonders fenders that have been showing up on the forum.What fenders are you going with and what rack did you order?
Yeah, I might be looking. The fatboy is big and burly, and while great for everyday commuting and snow/sleet, for summer I'd want something lighter and nimbler. Like the Cross Current or converting my Priority bike. It's just a passing thought right now. I don't know if my wife will let me get another bike, I have a few literally lying around the house and car port.Kaldeem, I saw on another thread that you are looking for a summer bike. And at the start of this thread you said 1 electric bike would not be enough. But there might be a way to get more satisfaction out of this bike. The brakes from bikesdirect are low rated if not Shimano. Avid hydraulic brakes have reviewers on Amazon saying they should be recalled because of their going out of adjustment and squeaking after ever 20 miles. The replacement for Avid, SRAM bb 5 brakes, are to new to have many reviews at Amazon but it is not looking good. Your bike only has mechanical brakes but the bikesdirect alternatives at higher prices are these low rated brakes. Shimano with ice tech rotors run at 300 instead of 400 degress because of the fancy aluminum steel layered rotors. You can get big rotor performance out of only 160 mm rotors with these. Reviews are top notch at Amazon and these could make you feel like you have a new bike. DEORE XT BL-M785 with SM-RT86, S 160MM 6-BOLT TYPE rotors is what bikesdirect use for the high rated Shimano hydraulic brake set. Not that expensive to buy in stand alone kit either.
