Fenders for an Electra Townie?
Is there any reason I can't just slap in a nice set of 60mm aluminum fenders from Velo Orange on a 26" Townie? Looking at the pics on Electra's site, it =looks= like a set of bog-standard 26" fenders, albeit wide enough to swallow the 26x2.00 tires, tho the site says they won't fit any other bike but the Townie. I know that's not true for the front - it's a rather universal-looking Sunrace suspension fork - but would I be in for a lot of trouble trying to get it to fit out back with the standard hardware?
Internal gears FTW!
You probably could make it work since most fenders are designed to be universal, but I would recommend the LBS to make sure it fits with different ones they have in stock. They will also have any extra hardware you may need.

With enough hardware and p clamps, you can mount fenders on almost any bike. Just not simply and elegantly. Once you get them, post your exact situation and the forum will find a way.
But I don't think V-O makes 26 inch fenders, that may pose an issue
Should work just fine. VO does have 26" fenders http://www.velo-orange.com/vo60fefor26w.html
The sliding bridge is what makes this easy.
