    ? About Natural Fit Handrims

    Can the Natural Fit Handrim be moved closer to the rim?

    My NF is a 6-tab mount. I removed the thumb ring, and remounted it <handrim> in the wide position. The tab mounts do have other holes, which would have allowed closer mounting if I had chose. The tire, tube, and rim tape must be removed to change the mounting. (Since I had everything apart, I replaced the mounting bolts & nuts with stainless steel.)

    Yes, however, you will have to remove thumb guard.

    I've been wanting to ask something and didn't want to open a thread just for my little question, so I hope you don't mind me asking my NF question here!

    Whats the best way to clean paint off NF rims? Like wall paint that you bumped into and got streaks on the NFs... I'm still working things out lol, especially when in close quarters. Anyhow I've now got some streaks of white and blue paint on the NFs on my chair. But the NFs on my chair were a mistake, and as soon as my rims come in I'll be going back to the DME to have these taken off and my LTs put on. So when that time comes, I don't want to be returning these rims looking like hell! Even though it was THEIR mistake to put them on my chair I'm a bit nervous.

    My daughter recommends those Mr. Clean "magic sponges" for all chair/handrim cleaning needs!
