WHO MAKES FENDERS?
October 25, 2005
Back to questions
I am trying to find out the
name of manufacturers for bicycle fenders.
I have a Trek Navigator 300 and
am looking for some fairly short front and rear fenders.
Someone mentioned SKS but I cannot find their Web site.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Three manufacturers I suggest you
look into: Planet
(on SKS's site choose English, then products).
Planet Bike and SKSs Web sites have dealer locaters.
Tho Wald does not, many dealers carry their productsand
in a pinch you could contact Wald directly.
To make sure the fenders you want
fit your bike, I suggest that when you go to buy the fenders
you take your bike with you.
I dont know why you want short
fendersbut to keep you and your bike the driest you
should get fenders that cover as much of your bikes
wheels as possible. So I recommend that you get a fender
that covers 180 degrees of your bikes rear wheel and
at least 95 degrees of the front wheel. (With the fender
installed and as you look at the bike from the left side,
the back part of the fender should cover the wheel all the
way to the 3 oclock position.)
