    Help with SKS commuter fenders

    I bought a set of SKS 35mm commuter fenders from Nashbar
    http://tinyurl.com/qypq9

    I'm a bit puzzled by the mounting instructions. They state to
    use the small clip in step #4 (see below) but in step #6 they
    state to use the "sliding bridge" (see second picture). As far
    as I can tell if you use the bridge the clip can't be mounted.

    So am I missing something here?

    Edit: ok after looking at photos of installed fenders I figured it out.
    The clip screws into the holes in the fender and I'm supposed to
    thread the fender much further down..

    The small clip bolts to the fender and is for mounting the fender onto the chainstay bridge. The other clip slides onto the fender and is for attaching the fender to the seatstay bridge. It bolts to the bridge. If you have difficulty sliding the second clip on, you can bend it open, put it on the fender and bend it back to its original shape.

    that little tension clip in the front/bottom of the rear was kinda a pain to manipulate and use...I used it on mine but will probably eventaly thrubolt the fender to the stay. Beware of the mounting bolts coming loose...even after locktite I'm still loosing parts....

    The chainstay bridge clip is not all that effective. I got a better result drilling a small hole 1cm from the tip and zip tieing the fender to the chainstay bridge.
