I only put these fenders on when its raining or the ground is wet outside. I take them off and put them back on pretty frequently and that's really simple to do. I don't like how the hardware that came with the fenders are threaded, they want to go in rough every time, I used different hardware to attach to my bike. also getting them set perfectly to fit on my bike was a pain as well.
These fenders are well built and easy to install...just take your time to install.
Put these over 35mm tire and installed as close to tire as possible and they look great. Very sturdy and dont rub.
Just give yourself atleast 10mm difference from tire size when ordering
And check fork and triangle clearance before ordering
Very happy with purchase.
I recently bought these SKS fenders to install on my bike because the Fall and Winter are pretty rainy here in the PNW. I found the fenders and the mounting hardware to be top quality and should be very durable.
The installation is not difficult but it requires test fitting the fenders and cutting the stays to match your particular bike. A hand saw or even better, a cutoff wheel in a drill or moto-tool works like a charm.
Once everything's mounted, they even have clever snap-in-place covers to protect the nuts and keep everything nice and tight.
I really can't imagine anything better and the price is very reasonable.
