Turn your bike into an all-weather vehicle with Planet Bike's Hardcore Fenders. Made of unbreakable Superflex polycarbonate with stainless-steel stays, they're ultra tough. They boast mudflaps for the ultimate in splash and spray protection and the front fender has release tabs for easy on/off. Plus, the hardware is pre-installed for quick mounting.
I love the way these fenders fit on my Hopworks Pub Runner. You almost can't tell they're there. Once you get everything tweaked, they are seamless. I even found some water (We're in a dry spell)at a local park to run through to try them out for our wet season that will soon be upon us.
Now for the not so great. These were a little tough to get installed on the Pub Runner. Everything on the bike is close. The front fender went on with nary a hitch. The rear fender...oh that rear fender. That was a little tougher. Since everything on the bike is so close, I had to trim the bracket that mounts on the brakes. By trimming I mean, the clips that secure the fender to the bracket needed to be trimmed to near nothing to clear the tire. I also had to elongate the slot that fits on the brake assembly to get as much clearance as I could. In addition, I had to remove one of the spacers in the brakes to accommodate for the fender bracket to fit this particular style of brake mount.
Once I got everything tweaked and trimmed, I couldn't be happier. Just keep in mind that these may not be a simple bolt on product for your application. If you are not mechanically inclined, please have the nice folks at Bike N Hike do it for you.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
