    Planet Bike Fenders on Trek 7100 **UPDATE**

    Hey Guys. I'm a newbie here. I've been lurking for about a month and enjoying getting back into biking.

    I just bought a set of Planet Bike fenders for my Trek 7100.

    The front one went on easily. The back one was a different story. I haven't been able to get the tire to stop rubbing on the front end of the fender.

    I was just curious if anyone else got these to work or am I wasting my time trying.

    My "Local Bike Shop" is 70 miles away. It was close to closing time so I just bought the set they recommended and thought I would slip them on myself.

    I was hoping to figure it out without having to take the bike into the shop.

    Thanks

    I must have been sleep deprived last night. Gave it another shot this afternoon and was successful.

    Here is the finished product. I'm wasn't sure about putting fenders on, but I don't think they look bad.

    Looks fantastic. Good job. I always like the Trek 7000 series bikes.

    Nice! That looks great! I'm hoping to put some fenders on my 7.0 trek fx soon and I hope I don't run into too many problems and then somehow wreck my bike

    Nothing wrong with them on your bike. In fact I think they suit it very well.

    Nice job malada! Btw, that looks like my bike, a 7300 with PB fenders. How do you like your bike?

    I really like it. I just started biking again and didn't want to spend a bunch of cash until I found out if I was going to stick with it. It seems like a great bike for the money.

    I bought it about a month ago and as of tonght have 197 miles on it.

    I'm still undecided on the seat but I want to give it a chance.

    It feel like I'm always sliding forward on it but I really don't want to raise the nose up any more and put pressure on the twins.

    The big stock seat (Bontrager Boulevard) that came with my 7300 was a torture device. I got a Planet Bike ARS saddle, and it's made a world of difference.

    Thanks for the advice! I'll look into that one.
