Dahon Fender Install

This is probably going to be a stupid question, so I apologize in advance for that.

I just picked up a set of the Dahon SKS fenders for my Speed Uno, and I thought I knew what I was doing with the install. The stays obviously get attached to the two holes, and the clip attaches to the cross bar on the rear fender.

However, the rear fender itself has a hole in it, and I have another small screw, so I'm wondering if maybe I'm missing something. The only hole I can see that is left is on the kickstand mount, is it supposed to screw into there? I guess if so then the wheel has to be taken off, because it doesn't look to be accessible from the front.

edyes it is. you need to screw the fender to that kickstand mount. that prevents the fender from moving/shaking. i was able to screw mine without removing the wheel. it is just a tight squeeze. a long screw driver will work.

Put the screw on by taking off the wheel. Don't mess with the zip tie unless you're willing to hear the occasional rattle. Here's a picture of my Speed Duo (Uno with 2 speed hub) for your reference.

pacificcyclist, thanks for the photos. Very helpful.

Just wondering what kind of modded pedals those are in the pics. Do you like them compared to the stock Speed Uno folding pedals?

Thanks!
