    SKS Raceblade or Speedez?

    I live in SoCal so I won't be using these everyday, just to not end up totally soaked when I ride in the rain.

    Which of these are better? The latter is cheaper. And would the hybrid version fit? I like the fact that mudflaps come attached.

    I've got both. Prefer the Speed EZ by a slim margin. Pretty much the same idea.

    Now that i think about, he couldnt have had any brakes working either.
    Nothing safer than no bars, no brakes on a freewheeled bike.

    If you mean the skimpy road models,they're basically the same. The PB's only come in black,if that matters,but are generally $10-20 cheaper.

    What bike? The hybrid models are reall,full fenders and will provide much better coverage.

    A 2001 Giant Kronos bike. Complete racing, touring bike. Would that work?

    Okay, all I'm asking is, will this fit with my bike with 25mm tires? The hybrids I mean.

    For 25mm tires, the PB SpeedEZ Road/35mm fenders will work just fine. You can use the Hybrid/45mm fenders, but they're unnecessarily wide.

    What kind of brakes do you have/how much room is there between them? If it's a touring bike and you have canti's it won't be a problem. If you have calipers,you'll need to measure how much clearance you have between them.

    I have both, also. Speedez, no question. It's all about coverage. You sure you can't go with the Cascadias? I'm thinking of changing to the bolt-on kind, since any of the rubber-strap kind will cause a little bit of paint abrasion from road dust and grit.

    Is that a great quote or what?
