I love the fenders
yeah - by sheldon that works out at 79 inches if you run 27" rims or just a tad less if 700c.
i'm running just over 80 inches atm and wow - i dunno how long i can do it! too many big hills and hill starts.
75 seems perfect i think. i can still spin at 130 or so and get up to around 50ks per hour. i just look like a goose doin it.
