  • Posted in thread: Do You Carry A Spare Tire on 02-10-2016 at 03:36 PM

    I have a B17 on my touring bike and love it. Yes they are hard, but mine is full leather and it

    The last one looked like a guard, not a fan, and the rider was looking down, not up. That one

    What kind of components do you have? For my Fuel, I use Jagwire coated and like it.
