Hi, Is anyone able to help with a bit of home maintenance advice?
After recently having my last commute bike written off after an accident I have purchased a replacement. I went for an Eddy Merckx Strasbourg 71 as I wanted an Adventure bike which I could fit fatter tyres (due to a few injuries) and also because it states it has rack and mudguard mounts.
However, the mounts on the rear seatstays are a bit odd as they are on the upper surface of the stay rather than the side (see bike review link Photo 4 and 7 in the article and attached photo). Does anyone know of compatible mudguards and pannier racks or are there 90 degree angle brackets/adaptors available that can be attached to mounting points?
Any help/advice/weblinks would be appreciated.
