After a group ride in some rainy weather on Saturday, I decided I *really* need some fenders on my bike. However I'm not sure if the frame will accept fenders or not.
My front suspension fork does not appear to have the eyelets for a front fender. However I'm planning on switching over to a rigid fork soon that does have the eyelets for fenders: http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...28_-1___202440
The rear I'm not so sure about. There are no eyelets that I can see near the rear dropouts. However on the inside of each seat stay and chain stay bar there is an open hole just ahead of the dropouts (4 holes total). I don't have a pic of them at this time.
Also there is an odd-looking bracket above the rear brake that doesn't appear to be used for anything at this point, but perhaps could be for the cable of center-pull brakes?
Are there any fenders that could clamp on to the seat and chain stay tubes instead of using eyelets? Or maybe some sort of clamp "adapters" that would allow the use of normal fenders?
