Chicago Help with Honjo Fenders

Is there anyone in CHI that might be a pro at installing Honjo fenders? I didn't realize when I purchased these that installation would be such a pain, requiring drilling holes, sawing hardware etc.

Would you be into helping out a fellow cyclist in exchange for beer and a warm feeling of kinship? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I have seen posts on this before. This seems to be very frustrating for most Honjo fender purchasers. LBS are very reluctant and most will not drill into a frame. You may already be aware of this. Good luck finding help.

Put the drill away and get some P-clips at the hardware store.

Yeah, two local bike shops are asking $60...after paying a premium for the fenders, that is way out of my budget. I am kinda afraid of mis-drilling the fenders and ruining them. Any hands-on help would be super appreciated and rewarded!

Thanks again!
