Need assistance finding equipment for Trek F400

Greetings!

I have owned my Trek F400 for over four years now and have been searching for three years for a rack and fenders. Unfortunately, they have discontinued this model in the US, so my only hope is abroad, where there are still limited sales. Does anyone know of a website or shop that sells Trek F400 equipment, or of equipment that fits the Trek F400?


By the way, it's an awesome bike; I've even been hit by a car, and other than a scraped pedal and nick in the frame, it runs as smoothly as ever.

I am going to make a guess that any fenders and racks that fit a Dahon 20" bike will fit the Trek. With a small amount of ingenuity you could make virtually any 20" fender and rack fit.

Here's one place for both:

Have you considered going for a good quality seatpost rack such as the Bontrager or equivalent?

My only concern with going with a seatpost rack is that either my bike won't fold up anymore, or it will fall off under the weight of my backpack. I will look further into the bontrager to see if it can support as much. Thank you!
