Looking at those pics (and not the one of manxman deflated and really jealous ) it just may be angle of the shot, but the front of the fender is looking closer to the tyre than the rear. Just to explain some extra details-

That was how proto-type III (i think it was) fitted on my bike anyways. Well Mark at Ralle-Moto decided to place a spacer (2 washers) on top of the fender at the rear bolts. The thinking behind this was to have the gap slightly closer at the rear and open the gap at the front, avoiding sticky crap packing in. The closer gap may bump, cut or knife down an amount of sticky shite. Makes sense to me.

So right now I'm not sure if Ralle-Moto fitted the spacers to the finished product on my bike or whether they adjusted the program on the mill.

Them wheels look lovely in black.
IMHO that front tyre works best everywhere with 35psi. At 30psi small rocks can hit hard and while it hangs on in the twisties it moves around a little.



PS- Have a great ride on Sunday
