  • **FEELER** IP Performance TLS Rear Tire Hugger (carbon fiber)

    THIS THREAD IS FOR GAUGING INTEREST IN AN IP PERFORMANCE CARBON FIBER REAR TIRE HUGGER FOR THE TLS IN THE STYLE SHOWN IN THE PHOTO BELOW.

    Hello all... I have been talking with TLP member IP Paul from the "CF TLS Low Profile Hump" thread located here:

    http://www.tlplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80061

    He also made many other TLS pieces for sale in that thread such as:

    Low Profile Seat Hump
    Standard Hump
    Heel Guards
    Clock Surround
    Panel under Screen
    Inner Panels (either side of clocks)
    Air Vents
    Sprocket Cover

    His work is top notch and after looking for a while for a rear tire hugger in CF for the TLS and not finding anything, I asked him if he could do one.

    He said it would be no problem!

    I would be offering up my rear tire hugger to make the mould with. One thing I really like about this hugger that I have NEVER seen on a CF one, is the indentions on it that give it some visual appeal. In other words, it's not just a smooth curve like every CF hugger you've ever seen for the TLS. Here is an old photo of my bike that shows the hugger pretty well:



    The IP Performance CF hugger will look like the Pyramid hugger below:


    Keep in mind that we need to generate some interest, hopefully about 15 names before I would be willing to send my hugger off to him and get this going. We don't "need" 15 to make this happen... but it would help expedite this and they will take it more serious.

    Once he has my hugger it will still take a few weeks to make a master, and run a prototype, etc... He did an amazing job with all the other requests, so there is no reason to believe that this will be any different.

    His estimate on price is 70 GBP plus shipping which should give you a good idea if you would be in or out, even if it goes up or down slightly by production time.

    Please don't add your name to the list thinking you will have a CF hugger in a few weeks. This will be a several month project from the **FEELER** stage until the first unit could go out. This will most likely be a winter project (winter in the US that is).

    If the list fills super fast, the ball could get rolling sooner... but plan on later.

    You already know who is first... question is, who's next?:

      www.cycleinnovations.com.au

      It never ceases to amaze why people ask for advice then when I give it they either ignore it or argue against it.
      But then I don't know all that much about TL's

      wwjd.......what would jimmy do.

            Thanks Ghost for starting this off. As ghost said 10-15 would be good and make it worth the effort. Once the initial order is done there will be further opportunities to order later.

                    Ok, so it's gotta be fate.. Spent the whole day at work looking around the interweb for one of these. Price is right for this, and it looks a bit different:

                            If that doesn't motivate people to sign up, I don't know what will!

                            IP Paul... Pay no attention to Pyramid's price.

                              If I didn't have one already I'd be all over this one

                              I may even get another yet.
