There were some pics of wheels with armless neopren suits - but don't know how much work it is to adopt one...

That's actually kinda brilliant as the neoprene protects from both scratches and impacts. I'm looking...

that wetsuit was probably made in china like all our clothes so they obviously have a lot of seamstresses, u would think they’d start making covers for wheels and snap on bottom foot pads protectors out of nylon our some other material. 

gotta be easier to make a wheel cover as opposed to a wetsuit. i’d gladly buy covers for my wheels as opposed to making my own.

Be advised I do have the V5 cover; while the cover itself is oddly sophisticated (it's a complex multi fabric with multiple layers) I found out the protection works against scratches but is minimal against impacts because it is thin compares to, say, 5mm neoprene.

Ups didnt see that it was already posted :D

The cost of replacement panels is half the cost of the neoprene cover. Still might be worth it, though, as neoprene is better than that crappy baby foam that EUC shippers often include.

I would like a little rain cover just for the top.

 

I agree. Nice job following the contours. Did you paint your KS? It appears to have a textured, almost rubberized appearance.

Sorry, since @Hunka Hunka Burning Love didn't do it I have to 😘

That wheel is so sexy it had to be rubberized....

Only thing is mine is bigger :whistling::w00t2: being a KS18L matt black rubber ( see signature) and now modded with western bigger pedals 😁

Was wondering what adhesive you used to tape the padding on, can't seem to get anything to stick to the pads or the surface of the KS16s.

Thanks

I just used the 3m tape that came with it.

3m mounting tape works good if you want it stay put.  Not the best looking being so thick but the baby foam does not move.  

So I ended up using a giant piece of duct tape then taped the padding on top. Holding on strong so far.
