Thanks Gary,

Re:The forward edge rule, I have a hard time accepting that the intent is to apply to only the fairing, the simple sentence as printed is "There shall be no streamlining forward of the front edge of the Rim." so I don't see it as limited to fairings.

This is also two sentences after the sentence that says "no part of the fairing may be"....."forward of the front edge of the rim".

So I arrive at these conclusions;

1. In modified (M) open classes, a streamlining device also known as a front fender maybe used provided it complies with the provisions of 7.F.4.1, which is a specifically listed exemption to 7.F.11

2. In Special Construction (A) open classes, a streamlining front fender is not specifically listed as an allowed exemption. to correct this I would add 7.F.4.1 and 7.F.4.2 to 7.G.4, where 7.G.4 says to see 7.F.4, and does not specifically also call out 7.F.4.1 and 7.F.4.2, which is probably the intent.

3. In M and A, partial streamlined classes, (MPS & APS), streamlining forward of the front edge (by fender or fairing) of the rim is against rule, although does appear to be a commonly accepted practice.

This is just how I see it, as I read it, but the physical evidence says otherwise.

Maybe time to send a note to T. Evans?

Lloyd, you can send a note to Tom if you wantbut, everything Gary said is correct. Front fenders are allowed.

Larry

to answer your questions
1. A front fender is not concidered streamlining and provided it complies to the dimentions given in the rules can be used in any class of sit on bike ( use this to your advantage )  wink
2.the forward edge rule concerns the fairing NOT the fender
3.the rules  are at the interpretation of whoever is inspecting, unfortunatly ,but seeing as no one has been denied a record because they had a fender in A classes I would not worry about it  smiley
My interpretitation is from a DLRA perspective  not SCTA so use with caution
cheers

Larry,

I never nor intended to stake a position that front fenders are not allowed.

Read my prior posts, and guess why I won't offer an opinion on this.

OK guys, front and rear fenders are allowed in every bike class. 
Partial streamlining pertains to front fairings. 
Tail Sections have their own rules. 
Front Fenders have their own rules.
Let's try not to make bikes as hard to understand as roadsters, the rules are ugly enough already...  wink
