Raleigh, Venture 4.0, fenders
I got the Venture 4.0 at the LBS, after they told the wife that it can have fenders. And they have fenders, but there made of plastic. I want good metal chrome fenders. So far all the LBS have said is that metal won't work but I can't see why that would be, if plastic will. I'm willing to make them fit myself if I can find a basic fender that will fit the rear frame. Anyone out there was done this or can point me in the right direction? I would greatly love the help.
What's wrong with SKS? They're reasonably lightweight and durable. There is no need for metal chrome fenders unless you like the look.
Honjo hammered fenders are beautiful but they're mucho expensive. Your bike shop does have a point that available plastic fenders are functional and attractive.

My LBS just put some great stainless steel, fenders and supports, fenders on my commuter. About $65. They're light and strong.
it's the wife's bike so bling is the goal, so thanks for honjo I'll give them a try.
