    Thanks
    i was thinking of those lawn signs
    but i would like to make it light and removable like the wheelbulders have it
    i just don know where to find that plastic sheet
    if i make it it out something different i have to make that notch on one side so it will be flat i just dont want to do that i would heat it up so it go down
    i seen people make it out of plastic wrap that they use for rc plains but that is just not that great

    Go to your local art store and buy some coroplast plastic. It's cheap and will give you something to start messing around with.

    Why isn't there anyone offering a disc conversion for a fixed wheel?

    I made a diy cover out of some crazy cardboard I got from a Costco near me. Took me about an hour to cut one out smoothly. A friend of mine had these cool spoke clips and he glued them onto corrugated plastic and clips right into place. I would post pics but he's out on vacation right now. ): zipties ftw.

    no no i guess it would requiter some cutting to fit it
    but also i found something that might work from Sulky carts those covers
    those would need to be cut down

    Hmm interesting, just checked my super deeps (43mm)

    and i can see how thats possible.

    but the wheels already weigh a ton, why would u want to add more weight?

    Just curious... and this isn't a flame or anything to stir the pot... but other than polo... why would you want wheel covers?

    it's established and a known fact that discs for road riding are sketchy...

    if it's for Aero advantage, then the money for a propper disc would make sense... but for anything else?

    what's the point of wheel covers?

    Cool points
