Track plastics fender rubbing on something...
Getting my new-to-me track bike prepped for my first day of the season on March 5th. Had the wheels off to get new rubber mounted. When I roll the bike backwards the damn fender sounds like it's going to explode, but I think it was doing the same thing before I had the wheels off.
The fender doesn't sit anything resembling straight when mounted, but appears to have plenty of clearance around the wheel. There's not any sort of bushings at the mounting points, and the rear mounting holes were zip-tied when I got it.
Anybody got any ideas on how to get this bitch to shut her ****ing mouth when I'm rolling her around the paddock? The whole bike makes a lot of fiberglassy noises - dunno if that's standard fare for track plastics, or if the set the previous owner put on it is just garbage, but the noise from the fender is ridiculous.
