Eighth Inch (I think), Shimano UN72

Charge Bucket, generic post

can't remember, maybe Wellgos, SRAM PC-1 chain

46 x 17 for riding in rain and snow, Velo Orange fenders

Bad weather bike. In storage now. When I get back to the US, I'd like to replace the Charge saddle with a Brooks Team Pro, but I'm concerned about putting a nice piece of leather like that on a bike that's ridden through the Chicago winter. Might flip the porteur bars back over as well. We'll see.

Thanks to davebrochill.

I'm trying to fit fenders to

I'm trying to fit fenders to my kilo as well. Can you tell me what vo fenders these are and what size tires you're running? I have pasela tour guards as well, but a 28 in the rear and 25 in the front. Let me know, thanks.

At the moment I'm not in the

At the moment I'm not in the same country as this bike, so I'm going on memory, but I'm pretty sure the fenders are the narrowest ones VO makes--the 37mm ones. And the tires are both 23mm--that, I'm sure of. I kind of doubt that I would have been able to fit the fenders with wider tires. As I recall, clearances were pretty tight at both the rear brake bridge and the fork crown. Good luck!

Too nice for snow,salt and winter yuk

ATB Man, that bike is too sweet for winter.

Thanks. It's spending this winter cozily tucked away in storage while I'm out of the country, but next winter it'll be in for a rude awakening.
