Hi All!

Just got a Jekyll 900 'Siemens' bike. Great (apart from the Shimano chain that was scrap from the
start - not good on a £2k bike!) Can anyone tell me if there is a full front mudguard available for
a Lefty? The dealer told me there isn't which I find surprising............some one must do one?
(Crud Catchers don't count!)

Also, I appreciate that a wireless computer poses a challenge on lefty equipped bikes. Again, any
advice out there? I need a computer for a fulfilling life!!!

Thanks all and a Happy New Year!!!!

Won't the THE fenders work with a lefty?

The Vetta V100 wireless is meant to be mounted on the left side of a fork, so it should work on a
lefty. I have the V100HR model with cadence and it works quite well..

I have a vetta v100 ,.. originally it was a "remote" ... but the distance down to the bottom of the
lefty was too great... and would not work... so i went to the regular harness.. you put the sensor
as low as possible on the lefty and glue a magnet on the rotor..

and yes for the front mud fender... it takes a special adaptor that is available from the same
company.... SKS shockboard.. I have the carbon fiber fender.

computer - I use a Sigma BC 1600 that attaches to the disc tube of my Martas - vv neat. On my other
one I put the receiver on the fork and the mavic magnet on the disc - XTR disc tube exits on the
wrong side of the calliper. I don't bother with the mudguard.
