Great fenders for my commuter/rain bike

I've had a couple sets of PDW metal fenders. My last set of 45mm fenders were a little too wide for the crown of my C3 so I went with the 37mm, which fits perfectly. Despite the specs, I'm running 32mm tires and the coverage is just fine. They've replaced the rubber flaps with plastic, which feels a little bit like a downgrade, but the plastic flaps are slightly longer and seem to provide better trailing coverage. I'm not sure how durable they will be, but so far they've been fine. Worst case I will replace with more sturdy flaps - easy enough to do with this design. Another thing that seems to have changed is the finish seems to be somehow more permeable than my previous fenders. Best way to describe it is the previous fenders would wash off really easy and these fenders seem to collect road grime a bit more. Not sure if that due to the paint - these fenders are black versus silver. Other than that, the fenders are super rigid, fairly light, and quiet. All that I'm looking for in a fender.

These are great.

I have a Kona Rove ST and have been looking for a nice set of fenders that will accommodate the 700x42mm tires I'm running. Have been regularly impressed with the quality and style of PDW products - no exception here. I did need to get some longer screws and rubber washers as the shape of the stay mounts and my frame eyelets weren't perfectly compatible - not a big deal though. Took my time and got them mounted. Great, rattle free coverage. Bonus to support a two Portland businesses.

Worth every penny

I rode through a few Portland winters with cheaper fenders (SKS, Planet bike, etc) before I admitted defeat and finally bought a set of these. They RULE. Amazing coverage, solid mounting hardware, no more rattles and, not for nothing, they look good (and clean up nicely). As some other reviewers have mentioned, you might have to get creative with installation on some bikes, but once they are on they are a wet weather game changer. I can't recommend these highly enough.
