fenders to fit over big apples on dahon boardwalk d7?

I have a 2007 dahon boardwalk d7, it came with fenders but once i put the big apples (20x2) on the fenders didn't fit any more. any one know a brand of fenders that would work with these tires/frame combo?

Thanks

Forget the fenders, I'm surprised those tires fit in the frame itself!

Its not possible with Big Apples. The trade off with fat tires is the plush ride. I wouldn't change it for the world!

one can cut the fenders and " elevate" them at the seatpost stays .....but its very tricky and usually gets bumped out o whack .... put some clip on fenders on the downtube and some at the seatpost ..or put a piece of plastik under the carrier for some protectection and enjoy the comfort of the bg apples

What about a flat fender? I've seem some pretty slick looking wood ones on the web(kinda pricey though) and if I'm not mistaken doesn't Cheg have a bike Friday set on his twenty? I've also seen one that straps on the underside of the main tube and folds up until needed although it's more of a splash guard than a fender. Good luck in your search hope you find what you're looking for

Apex makes flat fenders for 20" tires in plastic for $20 or so dollars a pair, they are brittle and will shatter if you're not careful, though



Best Price $8.93 at bikewagon.com
