those mudguard struts remind me of something that happened when i was a little grommet . Me and my mate were tannin down hill on our bicycles , he was on my sisters, i looked over just in time to see the rusted out struts on the front mudguard fail, the mudguard sun around , jammed the front wheel and then the handlebars removed his teeth.Shit you not, i saw the whole fucking thing in slow motion . sometimes i wake up at night sweating , checking that i still have my teeth. You better bolt them fuckers on well…..
Ouch!! I'll bear that in mind!!!
