    Turning an early Fuji Royale into a commuter - need help re pannier rack and fenders!

    So I think I should get a pair of 700 x 45mm fenders. Is this correct? What kind rack should I get? I didn't see braze-ons to attach the rack to the seat stays. Thanks.

    If you can afford it the tubus fly would be a slick rack to put on this bike if you're not planning on loading to load up on your commute... I'm sure there are some others like it that are slim, I had an older axiom that was basically a clone of the fly but it's been discontinued but the new one looks a bit flimsier than the tubus. Personally I would run the widest fenders you can fit on the frame and the widest tires underneath those, I have 52mm fenders and 38mm tires on my commuter bike. Any old blackburn knock-off style rack and some p-clamps would also work perfectly fine.
