These fenders are great! I get nothing but compliments from everyone I pass. I got the copper and they are very flashy. If you want to give your bike some unique flare, this will give you just that. They also feel pretty solid since they are metal and not plastic!

These are perfect for shedding Portland's wet weather, while still looking sharp on the road. The large size fit my 32c tires, but will also work for my 25c ones when I switch over for long distance rides. Great product! Kind of a pain to install without the right tools, for me, worth it to pay for installation to get it right.

I had these installed by WBW when I bought my GT Grade new. The bike is used mostly for commuting but after 2 years of brutal Portland roads, the metal tabs and mounts have broken off. I was able to keep the fenders on, but they rattled excessively at the lightest bump and needed constant maintenance. I will be replacing with something else.

These fenders are great looking but a total pain to install. Once you get them on and fully adjusted they seem pretty solid though.

Like most fenders that don't casually attach to the frame with fancy rubber bands, these were a pain to rassel onto my bike. Once there, they have been indeed quite handsome and good at keeping my toes dry and my backside unstriped.

I wanted a metal fenders to replace a broken plastic fenders for my touring bike (Salsa Vaya 3 w disc brakes). Metal fenders are typically a lot more costly than plastics but these were quiet affordable so I took the plunge and I'm glad I did (for the most part).

The Good Very sturdy (all metal fasteners no plastic, yeah!), no rattling or loosening up after bumpy rides. Looks great (goes great w black rims, subtle sophisticated look, almost not there ). Good value.

The Not-So-Good Tricky to install esp. if you have disc brakes. I had to bend the front fender stays to clear the disc brake. You also have to cut the fender stays to fit your bike (measure twice, cut once...). Directions are vague at best so you really need to take the time to get a general idea of how it all works before you start cutting and assembling.

I've only put 500 miles on it but so far everything is nice and tight like the first day. This wasn't the case with the plastic fenders I had with plastic fasteners.

These look fantastic once installed. Makes the cheap plastic alternatives look like cheap plastic. I only have ridden them in a couple days of light rain but the kept all spray and road grim contained.

The are a little tricky to instal but once on they are the best looking fenders around.

The feel like they will last forever.

I was looking for non-plastic fenders at a reasonable cost. These are definitely the ones. The look is amazing, fit is very good. No rattles. I was able to install on a Crossrip 3 in a very short time. I especially like how the stay adjustment works. Very easy to adjust side-to-side and trim.

Very pretty fenders, I like the texture on them, it looks classy. They offer very good coverage. They are a semi tight fit on 35c tires with gravel tread but it works. They included a good number of parts for different installation needs. The only thing is they are just a little bit more pliable than I would like, although it does help in getting a proper fit to be able to bend a little bit, and cuts down on the weight as well. Overall pleased with purchase.

Took some finessing to get them on my Diverge, but they do the job!

For my Specialized Diverge, I don't have a rim-brake mount on the front of the fork crown, and instead have a mounting position on the bottom of the fork crown (facing the tire and ground). Because of this, I had to remove the integrated mounting piece on the front fender (by drilling through the rivets). Once I did this, I was able to mount the fenders on my bike, and ultimately got them looking nice, with a fair bit of adjusting.

Running 36c tires pushes my clearance CLOSE, but so far I haven't had any issues. Would probably recommend smaller tires if possible.

Overall, they look sharp and do their job. Wish the installation could have been a bit more straightforward on my bike, but I'm still happy with them.

Received them undamaged and securely boxed. Looks great! Havent yet installed it on my bike but I just set it on top of my tires between the frames and looks sharp, especially in black. May need some fiddling to securely fit on bike (need to squeeze a little to fit between tight chain stay and fork) but that should be easily done. Havent used honjo or velo orange fenders but looks like a great alternative. Rainy season coming up in Seattle, cant wait to put it to use.

Look nice but tricky to install.

These look very nice and shiny. Came in a box that was a bit battered, and so had been bent in the middle, so had to bend them back as best I could. Putting them on was quite tricky - the hanger for the front fender was not long enough so I had to add an adapter made from a piece of metal and a couple of small bolts. They are quite narrow, and my 28 tires just fit inside them - not sure if 32 tires would work every time.

After installing it took a fair amount of time to adjust the front one, and the stays kept slipping through the clamps until those were really cranked down - may need to put a little glue on them to keep them in place. However, after a couple of weeks of fiddling they are all set, and I spent a day riding in the rain and they worked great.

These fenders are well made with clean stampings and solid hardware. Leather washers and clear illustrated directions make installation pretty easy. Installed on Trek Crossrip. I think these are the best looking fenders out there and they do their job quite well.

These fenders are lightweight, and look great. I bought the black 45mm for commuter duty on my 1x9 CX build, and they fit well over the 700x35 tires I'm running. The installation is a bit moderate in difficulty, but not too bad if you have a stand, just take your time. The stays (or struts) may need to be rough trimmed, and then again once properly fitted, to clear the axle hardware. I was able to do this with a jigsaw and metal blade, but some strong dykes ended up being easier. Certainly depends on where the mounts sit on your dropouts. Also, the bracket for the rear didn't work for me, as my bridge has a mount perpendicular what was needed, easily resolved with a drill and some spare hardware. One star removed for all that and instructions that left me wanting, but an excellent deal with reduced price, no tax, and free shipping.

I like that these have a retro-touch with the hammered style, but the matte black lets it fit in on more modern bikes (I put them on my Kona Jake - the 45mm size over my 32mm tires - even fit over my 32mm knobbies.).

Unlike plastic fenders, the metal gives them some structure so fewer stays are required, giving a cleaner look. On the downside, if the shape isn't quite right, it won't easily flex or bend to the shape you need. I found I could bend it by hand to make it a little narrower to fit between my chainstays, and a little widerflatter to clear my rear rack supports.

They are little tougher to install compared to most plastic fenders since the stays wrap around the fender. So instead of fitting it, and then trimming excess stays, you need to trim the excess before you can mount it. So be cautious and do just enough to get it on, then measure to get it just right and trim the rest.

Compared to most metal fenders, these are quite a bit lighter and the mounting hardware (vinyl covered brake boss mount and screws with cork washers) prevents them from rattling (I have heard no rattling in the roughly 300 miles I've had them on so far).

I really like the look of the hammered black fenders now that they're on my bike. That said, the instructions are exceptionally poor. Once installed, the fenders require a great deal of fine-tuning and adjustment to get running rattle- and rub-free. Do they work? Yes - although the rear fender could be longer. While it keeps the spray off me, it doesn't necessarily protect the rider behind me.

I had them installed at my LBS and the back fender is very noisy. The piece that attached to bike that holds the fender is plastic so you can't clamp it to the fender so the fender bounces and rattles.
