I'm looking to put a set of fenders on a cruiser with 26 x 2.125 tires. I'd like to put a rack over the back. The rack I have now barely clears the tire. Oh, and the bike has cantilever brakes, if it matters.
Eventually, something like this would be preferred. http://waldsports.com/index.cfm/stor...-twin-carrier/ instead of a rack.
I've seen 'balloon fenders' for sale. Are these what people use for bikes with wider tires? http://www.outsideoutfitters.com/p-1...FUjxOgodjCgAyA
What do I need to measure to find fenders that will fit and allow me to use a rack? Is there anything I should look for with rack sizing? I use this bike to carry grocery stuff and cat litter/food so the rack has to be able to carry at least 30 pounds.. to be safe!
I was considering getting thinner tires but I'm rather liking the wide tires in the snow...
