Mountain Bike Fenders? ? ? ?
Greetings to the list,
I do downhill and X-Country riding on a Specialized Big Hit/Enduro Comp with White Brothers DH-2.0 forks. I run a 26" front tire and a 24" on the back. With winter coming up, I have been researching fenders to keep the mud, snow, etc. down to a minimum. I've checked out quite a number of websites that carry a variety of fenders (If that's what you want to call them). First of all, they all look like they would fall off in the first mile and they also don't look like they would provide much in the way of keeping anything from flying in your face or backside. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed in the Mountain Bike industry for not manufacturing fenders that don't appear to work very well. Lets just say that nothing looks big or wide enough to do any good. I'm not overly worried about adding a little extra weight to have the added protection I'm looking for. . .
I'm interested in everyone's comments. Also, if anyone can direct me to manufacturers/suppliers that I don't know about in hopes to find what I would consider adequate fenders to equip my bike I would appreciate it very much!
Thank you for your time in this matter,
