Let me get this straight. You are running completely stock suspension, riding on public roads and your biggest concern for increasing your personal safety is to make sure your foot doesn't get tangled up in your drive chain when you crash.
cheers N20CapriTrust me you don't need them for trackdays here.
I do think it looks quite good though
I'm just jealous... I've always wanted a carbon fiber toe guard my entire life & it is the one thing that has always seemed to elude me. Someday I will have though, someday one of those will be mine!Anyway, spit it out LDH, whats all this animosity about?
Cheers man I wish i could come and work for you mrgrn, learn how to do CarbonPartz properly :hail:
Unfortunately mate, your basic design is shite. You have an internal V which could easily snag a toe or finger.Well im very pleased with myself for making that, its only small but its the first time something has come out really tidy.
Thanks for your thoughts John - Well ive designed it like that after looking at some of the new motocross toe guards, they dont use the shark fin shape, instead guard that encompases the chain so your toes cant go through. I figured that shape would keep my toes away from the spinning chain.Unfortunately mate, your basic design is shite. You have an internal V which could easily snag a toe or finger.
It's called a shark fin for a reason, it needs to be that shape to push your pinkies away from the chain and sprocket.
Having said that, the basic idea seems good, fitted tight to the chain, it just needs to be a different shape.
How much does it interfere with fitting the rear wheel as it is?
That's it though, isn't it? I really, really like the idea, BUT your guard DOESN'T encompass the chain, it's only on one side.Well ive designed it like that after looking at some of the new motocross toe guards, they dont use the shark fin shape, instead guard that encompases the chain so your toes cant go through
I'm sure we can meet up a a track or two, but as to teach, don't listen to me, i'm crap!Its only 5mm off the chain and i doubt your toe could get pulled through there, if it could then that would render shark design at 5CM off chain useless. Fingers wouldnt stand a chance.
Im Macclesfield, Cheshire - thats 215 miles from you, which is a shame cos im looking for a new mate to teach me to ride track properly. I did have great guy 2 months ago and he tested the blade for me but his phone went off.
