    Fender Size???

    I just converted my old mountain bike to a rigid single speed for commuting. I switched from 26" x 2.10" tires to 26" x 1.25" high pressure tires and from a suspension fork to a suspension corrected rigid. My question is are there any fenders made for a thin tire that will fit on a mountain bike??

    I can't find anything that will work at the shop I work at, as we are limited to distributors for parts. I would prefer bolt on but would take quick released fenders if thats all thats available.

    I'm pretty sure SKS and Planet Bike both make full fenders for 26" wheels.

    They do but planet bike only makes the 60mm for mountain bikes and I'm looking for a fender that would be half of that. What i failed to mention in the OP is the rigid fork im using is a carbon for which resembles a road fork do it had very little clearance.

    If your tires are 1.25" (32 mm), you wouldn't want to use anything less than 40 mm wide. You could probably get away with using the Planet Bike 700c x 45 mm hybrid or touring models, if the fork will allow it (if not, you may have to use the speedEZ). The curve of the tires are different, but it might work. There are also a 700c x 35 mm road models, but I think that's cutting it close for 32 mm tires.
