Interesting links… the fenders look nice and not all that expensive, considering. I looked at the specs for the Raleigh bike and it does say that there are fender mounts on the frame – that’s what you need. Also -- you will need either 26" x 40mm or 26" x 50mm -- the 50mm ones are wider – I’m guessing you’ll want the narrower ones.
If you want a shop to install them, you probably should buy through them. I’ll bet that if you call a few shops, you’ll find one that will be willing to do this via special order. And ask them which size will be best – after looking at your bike.
I like having at least one bike with fenders – after a rainstorm it’s nice to ride on the wet roads without all the spray.

Mattie Ross: I am the person for it. Mama was never any good at sums and she could hardly spell “CAT”.
