Hugger problems
« on: February 26, 2014, 06:21:27 pm »
Had my powerbronze hugger arrive today.

Tried to fit it but the result was the thing seeming to sit too far to the left and also to the front - result is the front lower right hand part of the hugger is rubbing quite firmly against the tyre :187: :013: :023: :003: :161: :233:

There does not seem to be enough adjustment in the thing to get it to clear.

Anyone else have these issues with it??

Mine also sits to one side but it does clear the tire well.  I haven't loosened mine and used all the adjustment slot on the bracket to move it over, so it could be closer to center than it is.  Once it's installed it isn't really easy to adjust.  Did you check with Powerbronze to make sure it isn't a hugger for some other model or not?  I didn't look on the website to see if they even made one for any other models or not.

I had to bend the bracket on mine to the left to get clearance over the tyre. The rest of it sits ok around the tyre.

Tried fitting mine today and guess what....it doesn't fit. It too is rubbing on the tyre. Powerbronze is only across the road so I'll go visit them tomorrow. If you need to bend it in anyway then that's just not right.
