Any Reason Not Too?
Nice for the price.Posted 4 years ago
Although any bike marketed as a “commuter”, especially one going down the maintenance free line with the alfine and belt ought to have mudguards as standard. Which brings me onto a favourite bugbear of mine: track-ends and full-length mudguards are not a happy combination.
Make sure the tyres are bombproof so you’re not going to be taking the wheel out at all (which is a pain with an Alfine anyway) and buy it!IAMember
I’ve got “proper” mudguards on a bike with track ends (tricross single).
It’s fine – just when you set them up adjust the stays so you have a biggish gap infront/behind the wheel horizontally. Just need a couple inches, then you have space for tension/getting the wheel out.
So yes, a touch more effort to setup, but once they’re on, they’re on.Posted 4 years agolucienMember

The original Carbon drive belt on my Kona A snapped due to excessive side wear as it wasn’t aligned correctly, mainly due to the frame flexing through the pivots.
Since replacing the rear hub with a bolt-in axle to stiffen it up, the Centre-track belt (which also copes with misalignment better) has been flawless.

which just doesn’t look as nice 🙁Posted 4 years ago
Fwd-facing slanted dropouts FTW. Especially if using a nutted hub like the Alfine…
