    fender recommendation

    Hi Everyone

    I have an older DeKerf Generation mountain bike that I now use solely for commuting. It has Rock Shox Judy front suspension and a hard tail. In its time, it was a very nice MB frame and it does not have any braze-ons and thus no easy way to attach full coverage fenders (which is my desire).

    I am looking for fender suggestions for this frame. I want to get as much wheel coverage as possible as I regularly commute in the rain. Ease of installation/removal is not an issue as this bike is a permanent commuter for me.

    Thanks for any pointers

    Should go straight on. Your suspension fork should have a brace between the legs at the top,that's where the front's upper mount will go.

    Also, you can rig something up to get the fender stays attached. I've had luck with very very thick zip ties and coated P-clamps.

    "It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle." ~ Ernest Hemingway
